Mother’s Day Sessions with Irish Eyes Photography – Hingham MA

I started offering Mother’s Day sessions a few years ago.  To me, there is nothing more important than getting Mum in the pictures.  I always try to make a point of getting some shots of Mum with her kid(s) during regular family portrait sessions, but I loved the idea of this JUST being about Mum and her kids.  Maybe because I’m a mum and I know how hard it is to settle into a moment of just us being photographed. These were quick, 20 minute sessions full of closeness, of smiles, of tenderness, and of so much love.  We all need to stop and capture these moments as they pass by so quickly.  Even if you feel like you’re not your “best self” and aren’t “camera ready yet” you should do these anyway.  Your family thinks you’re gorgeous.  Because you are.  Give yourself the gift of capturing this time.  Your kids will love to look back and see them with you at every age.  They love you.  These portraits are just as much for them in the future as they are for you in the now.

This year we went to Hingham Bathing Beach a few blocks away from the studio.  Last year’s beach sessions were such a success I wanted to do the same idea this year just at a different location.  Hingham Bathing Beach offers so many great spots for portraits.  It was an insanely sunny afternoon (the first really of the year – we were shocked!) but it was still a great time.  Here are some highlights:

Sometimes Motherhood can carry a sadness alongside it.  We celebrated the daughter that first made this beautiful woman a mum in a simple, but important way.Absolutely stunning.  What a beautiful, happy mum.

Onto Mum #2: My beautiful sister!

So much light and love.

Mum #3 is an Irish Eyes Photography alum; we did a family session a couple of years back.  The kids are bigger, crazier, and cuter than ever before.  Their family has changed since we last met; and the beach was not an ideal spot for this mum – too many painful memories.  So we switched it up and after the beach sessions I drove down the street to Webb Memorial State Park in Weymouth.  The sun was lower and golden, the day was gorgeous, and we had a blast being silly and attacking mum as often as possible.

Families are all different.  And they can change even when you don’t expect them to.  There are losses.  There are gains.  There can be so much pain and sadness and then there can be SO much love and light.  Each of the mothers in this post have experienced alterations to their beautifully laid plans. Each of them is incredibly beautiful and strong.  And each of them is rocking this motherhood thing.  Ladies, I am so proud to know you.  Thank you for shining even through darkness.  Thank you for mothering your beautiful children.  Thank you for celebrating your journey with these images.  You are totally and completely owning motherhood.  You inspire me.

As I write this, it’s two days after Mother’s Day.  I spent Mother’s Day immersed in my own family.  I hope you got to do that too.  I have the honor of working with many many families each year.  And every mum is just so lovely.  Perhaps the reason my job is so wonderful is because I get to witness so much love every day.  It is an incredible gift that I am grateful for every day.  I love it.  Happy Mother’s Day to all of you out there.  You’re doing a great job.

At Home With the A Family – a newborn lifestyle session – Irish Eyes Photography, Hingham MA

There’s no doubt about it; lifestyle sessions are my absolute favorite.  What’s better than capturing YOU and YOUR family in YOUR space?  It tells your story on an entirely deeper level.  When you look back at your images someday, you’re not only saying “aw, look at how little Junior is” and, “remember that shirt you wouldn’t take it off?!” and, “aww that was my favorite necklace,” but you can add in so many more layers: “oh my goodness I forgot your room looked like that” or “that was my favorite lamp and then you accidentally broke it when you were playing Superbowl in the living room two years later” and everyone can laugh together at all the extra stories these pictures tell.  So, so special.

The A Family had welcomed their newest member and wanted to capture this amazing and huge time with an at-home session.  I absolutely loved our time together.  Baby M was an incredibly chill baby – and I hear that’s not always the case, so, score!  Hahaha.  We had a ton of fun and I really love their images.  Take a look.

This next one is too fun.  The A Family agreed; they purchased a large print to put in the most fun place; they put it over their stairs in the little ceiling alcove you can see ahead of you from the top of the stairs (I have no idea how to describe to someone who doesn’t have this feature in their home this but hopefully that makes sense hahaha).  So every time they walk down the stairs, this happy, loving, hilarious image will make them smile.  When they said this was their plan I was so excited.  It’s perfect for that spot!

I love baby toes!!! Thanks for the incredible honor of capturing this time for you, A Family.  You are all so wonderful, so kind, so fun! and so special.  I can’t wait to capture more milestones for you.

-Kerry

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #17: Calm

Typically when I post these galleries, I am either doing it from the waiting area of my kids’ swim classes, or, if it’s my husband’s turn to take them to swim, I do it from home.  Last week, it was my husband’s turn to take them and it was a gorgeous day so I was posting from my screened in porch.  I felt very calm as the breeze blew through and the world felt fresh and hopeful.  Thus this week’s challenge word was chosen.  I have been a big fan of the images posted this week. So many different approaches and all so perfect suited for the challenge.  You guys are doing such a great job week to week!  I love checking in!   So without further ado, here is this week’s gallery for your calm approval:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #16: Wet

April brought a LOT of showers and therefore it was pouring when it was time to choose a theme for last week.  As I drearily gazed through the droplets on my window for the umpteenth day in a row, the idea came to me.  I figured with all that rain it wasn’t a difficult challenge word.  And people did great!  Happily, a week (and many inches of water) later, here I sit in the glorious dusky sun – dry as a bone and basking in the breeze.  Oh nice weather, please stay!   But first… let’s take a walk down memory lane and see all those rainy wet images.  I am actually a big fan of rain.  It feels cleansing and it feels refreshing.  But the rains of the past few weeks were also cold and you couldn’t shake the damp chill no matter how hard you tried.  I’m happy to feel warm right now.  I think we all needed it!  Still, I celebrate these images and all their damp, wet, glory.  Of course, it’s easy to do that from a warm, breezy porch!

College Yearbook Portraits – Hingham MA

A little over four years ago, I photographed this gorgeous girl for her high school senior portraits.  I was so thrilled when she got back in touch regarding her college yearbook portraits!  She said she knew she could get better images than the company the school hires so could she come back?  The answer was YES! OF COURSE!

She brought along her boyfriend who is also graduating alongside her.  The three of us had fun chatting and laughing and going down memory lane.  It was a nice, easy, relaxed way to grab some professional headshots.  I had a great time!  These kids (man I feel old) are awesome.

And just for fun, let’s take a look back at one of my favorite images from her senior portrait session…

Stunning then and stunning now.  I also think you can see how much more sure of herself she is in these new images.  She’s going to rock adulthood.

If you need college headshots or professional portraits for LinkedIn or your company’s website, be sure to reach out.  It’s very easy going and fun.

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #15: Full

This week’s theme was “Full.”  And what a full week it has been.  A week full of sunshine (finally!) and rain.  Of school vacation and of back to school.  Of so many things.  I’ve been realizing how full my life is lately and while all the things that make it so full are wonderful and lovely (I really am so lucky), I’ve been feeling the strain of being TOO full.  Like a belly that’s stuffed to the gills, my brain feels like it needs a good long break before I stuff anything else in.  So I sat down with my husband and we took a look at any free time we had coming up.  Miraculously, we had Sundays free for the entire month of May.  So we claimed them.  They are ours.  No plans, no requirements, just time for the four of us.  We’ve already had to say no a few awesome sounding things, but, I think we’re really excited for the ability to just chill out a bit.  Especially since we have nice weather on the horizon so we get to enjoy our brand new screened in porch.  I expect many naps on our outdoor sofa in my future.  I think it’s the perfect cure for this fullness I’m feeling – and it’ll make room to fill my life right back up again.  Hahaha.  What about you?  How is your life feeling these days?  Are you taking care of you and making sure you’re putting yourself and your family first?  Howso?  Feel free to start a discussion of tips and tricks in the comments section of this post!

Anyway.  Onto the gallery.  Great work as always everyone!  This is seriously so much fun to see how everyone interprets it every week.  Keep up the great work!  Invite some friends too – let’s spread this fun around like confetti!

M Family Studio Session

When this client first reached out to me, many months ago, she said she wanted a basic, white, neutral studio backdrop.  It was time for some family portraits, and she wanted her beautiful family to shine.  And shine they did.  This charming quintet completely stole my heart.  This is a family full of love, of sweetness, and of joy.  Not to mention, they’re all adorable.

As appropriate for his age, the littlest one gave us a run for our money.  But with a lot of patience, a lot of enticing, and a lot of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the studio TV, I manged to get some really sweet shots.  His brother and sister were like professional models; they sat patiently and waited for Little Brother to do his thing.  They both get gold stars for being so fantastic.

Sometimes in the middle of a session, kids need a break.  We took out all the toys and let them play.  A professional portrait session shouldn’t be without playtime.  Especially when it’s a slightly more formal studio session.  The kids got to stretch their imaginations, their legs, and their voices for a bit.  And then we grabbed some more shots afterward.  Of course, I still grabbed a few during our little break.  These are some of my favorites from our time together!

I couldn’t love this one more.

M Family, thank you so much for the time we spent together. I am in awe of how incredibly well mannered your children are, and how much your love for each other radiates through these images.  There is obviously so much joy in your lives.  Thank you for sharing it with me.

-Kerry

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #14: Pattern

Every week is different.  Some challenge words are more abstract, and some are very visual – like colors, or, in this case, the idea of patterns.  I thought this would be a really fun (and relatively easy) one for people to cozy up to; there are patterns EVERYWHERE!  I love how people embraced this one.  Take a look!

Teenage Acting Headshots – Hingham MA

Five years ago, I walked into rehearsal for A Taste of Broadway – a yearly musical revue that I’ve been a part of for a long time. Four younger girls were rehearsing a number from Matilda.  Some were faces I knew, some weren’t.  The number was absolutely fantastic and I was blown away.  Ever a sucker for good accent work, I sat, mouth agape, as one unfamiliar face stepped forward for her solo.  With an amazing voice, and enviable stage presence, this young pre-teen opened her mouth and knocked. it. out. of. the. park.  It was everything.  I was an instant fan.

I’ve spent the five years since watching her blossom into a beautiful young woman, and her star is on the rise.  I was absolutely honored when she asked me to take her new acting headshots.  On a cold and dreary day, we met and knocked out some headshots in record time; girl knows how to work the camera.  We had a blast and tonight I was able to share the results with her and her awesome mum.  I am so happy with the images she chose.  She’s going to take this world by storm.  Check it out.

I can’t wait to see what her future holds.  All I know is, I’ll still be sitting there, mouth agape, blown away by her talent.

Need acting headshots?  Email me at kerry@irisheyesphotography.com or call 781-974-6783 and we’ll make it happen!

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #13: Open

For this week, I wanted a hopeful idea.  I’d have loved to pick “spring” or “bloom” or something along those lines.  But alas, spring has not yet sprung for most of us playing along, no matter how late into April we seem to be.  So, I decided on a play on the word “bloom” – OPEN.  How wonderful it is to be open.  Open eyes, open doors, open books, open soul.  Those who submitted something for this week did an excellent job at capturing this idea and in many different ways.  I am so happy with how everyone is thinking outside of the box each week. You’re all doing such wonderful jobs and I’m so proud of you!   Let’s take a look:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #12: Hands

I’ve always been fascinated with hands.  Not just hands – but how differently each pair handles things.  Everyone touches in a unique way and I love that.  I used to love the way Mister Rogers would hold a wooden block or toy – or a paper cup.  He was always so gentle.  Of course, that was his way with everything, wasn’t it?   This week our challenge was to photograph hands – and yet again everyone playing along did a great job.  There were human hands, clock hands, toy hands, gold hands… it was a great week for thinking outside the box!  Check it out.

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #11: Transportation

This was such a fun week!  I love all the different ways people went with this.  I still have to post mine (!) but I wanted to get this gallery up now before I stopped for lunch.  We’re moving into our 12th week of this challenge which seems pretty awesome to me.  I love that everyone has kept going with this.  I can’t wait to see what’s to come!   Check out the gallery below.  Which one’s your favorite?

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #10: Green

After a few weeks of more challenging…challenges, I decided to give people a break and do another easy one.  Everyone seemed to love doing a color challenge, so I decided it would be a color.  But which one?  Since Saint Patrick’s Day was smack dab in the middle of the week, the color green won!  Green also happens to be my favorite color, so, this week’s gallery makes me very happy to look at.  As always, I love that some people went in different directions – that’s always part of the joy of this challenge – and I also love the folks who went quite literally.  This was a great week!   Check it out:

J Turns One!

This little boy first came into my universe shortly before this past Christmas.  I met his amazing family for a family portrait session and have fallen hard ever since!  When we discussed that first session, his mum said, “he’s the happiest baby!” I wondered if that was actually true.

Let me tell you — it WAS.  And now, with a family session, a Valentine’s Day session, and his first birthday portraits under our belts, I can tell you he remains happy at all times.  He is a complete joy and I’m so excited for his family to celebrate a year filled with such joy!

For his first birthday, his mum made an organic cake and decorated it herself.  It was so beautiful!  The frosting was apparently delicious according to Baby J – but – the cake, while probably delicious, was pretty hard for his little fingers to bust into!  Must’ve been all those good-for-you ingredients!  So, I present you with the cleanest cake smash session I’ve ever done!  hahaha.

I love this picture so much.  Pure ecstasy.  As all of us feel when we eat delicious cake.  Hahaha.

Baby J and family – thank you so much for including me in so many joyous moments these past few months.  It has been such a treat working with you all.  It’s an honor to know you.

If you’re interested in booking a session, hit the contact button above and let’s get started.  You’ll have a ton of fun – I promise!

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #9: Woman

In honor of International Woman’s Day, our challenge this week was simply, “woman.”  I was looking forward to the many many different ways people could interpret this challenge and I was not disappointed.  I have heard a lot of people say this was a tough challenge and I wonder why.  Why should it be so hard for us to take a picture that encompasses the idea of “woman?” For many of us, a simple selfie would do.  But then, that’s assigning us a certain power, right?  A claim to be “woman” and not just “woman” which we obviously are, but, a claim to be strong and worthy of such a title. And we ARE strong and worthy.  If too shy and unnerved to take a selfie, we could snap an image of what makes us FEEL like a woman.  Motherhood? Our jobs? A face mask? Nail polish? Make-up? No make-up? (That last one was done by one member and I applaud that image greatly).  What about our muscles? Hair? Breasts? Lack of Breasts? Cancer survival? While I don’t THINK we have any trans-gender members of the community (yet — we welcome you and anyone else… come play!), that would be an amazing exploration as well.  Captivating too.  We do have one very gorgeous man in drag in our gallery – can you find him?  (Psst, to see more of him and more – go see La Cage Aux Folles at The Company Theatre! And I don’t get any benefit for giving a shout out; I just love my friend and can’t wait to see him!).  I digress.  Maybe we’ll do a re-do of this challenge in a few months and see if people feel less threatened by it.  Because it deserves your attention.  Just like all women do.  It’s a bummer that this was the least attended week.  Step up Ladies!  Roar with me!

I’m also adding a second gallery since some people did the hashtag #irisheyeswomen (as in plural).

p.s. I was at the Museum of Science the other day, sitting with my son watching the Lightning Show.  The woman who did the presentation introduced herself, and then said, “and my pronouns are “she” and “her.”  I LOVED that.  Way to go, Museum of Science!

C Turns One!

When your little one is born right around Valentine’s Day, having a Valentine’s Day First Birthday portrait session is a no-brainer!  This fantastic little sweetheart came into my studio with her parents and we all had THE BEST TIME while she showed off her ability to walk, play, and stick out her tongue! 

I absolutely LOVE the denim/tutu combo.  Girl’s got style.

Peek-a-boo!

Come celebrate your little one’s birthday with Irish Eyes Photography.  We have a great time around here.

C and family – thank you so much for being so amazing and fun to work with!  I can’t wait to work with you all again.  What an awesome family you are!

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #8: Eggs

This week, in honor of the Weymouth High Theatre Company’s competition play, The Future is in Eggs, the theme was… Eggs!  It was a fun and random week and people did some really creative shots with it.  Mid week, WHTC’s production won at the preliminary round of the Massachusetts High School Drama Festival (yay!!!), and will perform at the semi-final round this weekend.  I’m so excited for all the fun they’re having.  Festival is an incredible experience – win OR lose – and so I’m sure they’re all delirious with excitement.  Let’s take a look at our photographic salute to these awesome theatre kids and all their hard work:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #7: Soothe

There are still so many souls that are healing from not only large scale national events, but quiet personal events too.  Last week we photographed what makes us feel safe.  This week I wanted to continue with this healing idea and so I asked for what’s soothing to you.  I have to tell you, if you ever need to stop and take a breath, pull up this blog post and look at everyone’s images.  So many of them made me take a nice deep, cleansing breath and release some tension.  I hope that happens for you too.  Let’s take a look at all the great work this week:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #6: Safety

Safety.

This week, we’ve had the least amount of posts since the challenge began.  I believe it’s not because people aren’t interested, but instead, because it was too challenging.  Not because of the word itself, but because in light of ongoing events (I wanted to say recent but it’s not just recent events at all), I don’t believe many of us feel safe at all.  It was because of my lack of feeling safe after the shooting in Florida that I chose the word Safety.  I needed to be inspired to find something that made me feel safe.  It was a hard challenge for me as well.  What makes me feel safe these days?  Feel free to find my post among the other wonderful posts to find out the answer.

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #5: Yum

I don’t know about the rest of you playing at home, but this week was hard for me.  I had all these outside-of-the-box ideas for this one.  And then some very simple foodie shots I thought I’d do too.  And I missed a ton of opportunities.  I just wasn’t as inspired for this one as I was for others.  Not sure if this is because I had someone else throw a word at me to be this week’s challenge or, if it was just a hard one in general.  How did you feel?   It turns out what I had been craving most often this week was something simple:  a nice cold glass of water.  So that’s what I went with for my image.  I tried to use a more interesting perspective to make it a bit more interesting – which really and truly is the point of this challenge.  The goal is to play with the way we look at every day things.  So, mission accomplished!  Hahaha.  This coming week should be a fun one so I’m excited to see what people do!   Let’s take a look at all the yummyness you captured this week:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #4: Light

Winter can be dreary and dark sometimes.  With the flu running rampant everywhere, we’ve all had bouts of having to stay confined to our homes as well as dealing with the hum drum of the dead of winter.  It was time to focus our attention to something a little more uplifting.  And what’s more uplifting than light?!  Not only was it an uplifting challenge, it was also a fun one.  Photographers and artists for centuries have been studying light in imagery, and here we are knocking it out of the park for this week’s challenge!  Take a look:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #3: Red

With Valentine Sessions on my mind this past week, I went for our first color challenge: Red.  There will be color challenges peppered in along our journey through this incredibly fun weekly adventure.  I am LOVING the creativity and the fun everyone is having.  I am so excited every time I see that someone posted.  I hope those of you playing along are just as excited as I am.

Being a redhead, I could’ve had an easy time of this one.  But I wanted to think outside the box and do something different.  I was hoping to be inspired by something totally random and unique – but I never came across any such inspiration.  So, today at Target (with all its red), I found an aisle that fit the bill quite well.  And of course, I shared another shot of an iconic part of the store too.  I couldn’t resist!  Anyway, onto the good stuff! Take a look at the entire gallery and if you want to join in the fun, you can join the Facebook Group here!
