Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #26: White

I think we’re having a slower few weeks because so many people are on vacation and adjusting to new summer schedules.  We’ve still got a great showing for these summertime challenges, even if it’s less than usual!  I was really impressed with this week’s submissions.  I appreciated the out-of-the-box thoughts on this.  I wondered if anyone would go political (they did not).  Color challenges are always fun because it causes you to look around your surroundings, find the color, and, even if it’s a “mundane” thing, to find a way to photograph it so it becomes interesting.  I think shapes would be a fun idea to explore as well, so I’ll have to throw some shape challenges in there too!  Maybe even this week!   For now, enjoy our White challenge.

2018 July 4th Parade Portraits – Downtown Hingham – Irish Eyes Photography

Riding on the coattails of my ever popular Halloween Mini Sessions, I had the idea to copy the format and apply it to the July 4th Parade day that goes through Downtown Hingham – right past my studio.  Two simple setups to choose from, close portraits of patriotic kiddos, and the joy of attending an incredible parade – just the right format for another joyful mini session event.  In total, FORTY FAMILIES dropped by (not all are pictured due to privacy requests which I very happily honored).  What an incredible turnout for the first year!  I hope you’ll all come back every year as many of you do for Halloween.  We always get to have so much fun and I just love how many high fives I got yesterday (I even got a high-foot!).

Thanks to everyone who came out.  You guys are awesome.  Thanks for making my heart so happy.  I hope the rest of your holiday was just as fun.

-Kerry

a note: for some reason the galleries always post out of order.  If you see only one image of your kids and know there’s another — keep scrolling.  It’ll be there.  And if it’s not – please email me so I may fix that for you (but it really should be hahaha I counted).

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #25: Summer

If I had known my announcing ‘summer’ as this week’s challenge would bring about a heatwave that’s been THIS INTENSE, I may have chosen a different challenge word!  My oh my!  I hope you’ve all been able to keep relatively cool this week.  Our air conditioning broke – we fixed it – and then it SUPER broke.  So we have been w-a-r-m this week.  The good news is, tomorrow it’s supposed to storm and break the heat and then Saturday looks delightful.  Phew.  We need it. If it rains really hard tomorrow I plan on dancing in it.  Anyone want to join in?

This week’s gallery is very fun.  Lots of summertime joys are included so I hope you relish viewing it as much as I did.  Take a look:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #24: Power

Another week gone in the blink of an eye!  Many of us ended school years this week.  My son’s ended last week, and my daughter’s ended today!  I can hardly believe it.  The power of time moving too fast.  It seemed like yesterday (like, it ACTUALLY seems like YESTERDAY) that I challenged you to the word “Power.” And here we are!  This appears to have been a tough one for some – but we still managed to get a number of submissions in!  This coming week (and the next) will be easy ones, so, that should help.  As an FYI, next week’s post and announcement of the new word will be on Thursday July 5th and not on Wednesday July 4th because… independence and all that.  Hahaha.  Let’s see how we did this week!

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #23: Father

With Father’s Day in the middle of our challenge week, “Father” seemed like an easy challenge word.   We had less participants than usual this week so I guess it was harder than I thought!  It’s really interesting to me to see what people find easy and what people find too hard.  I am always surprised by which words catch ME off guard.  Just because I come up with the challenges doesn’t mean I have any idea what I’ll do.  This week I assumed I’d post an image of my husband dad’ing it up with our kids.  And I did take some images on Father’s Day.  But none that seemed to be what I wanted for this challenge.  So I went an entirely different way.  You never know where this challenge will take you!  Let’s see how everyone did, shall we?

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #22: Pride

It’s Pride Month and, this weekend was full of joyous celebration in cities and towns all over our country.  It was the perfect week for the challenge word to be “Pride.”  And even if it wasn’t, we’ve all got something to be proud of so it’s not too difficult to come up with something.  I loved seeing the images this week.  All happy – all so lovely and celebratory.  We celebrated love, parenthood, physical strength, ethnicity, hometowns, serving one’s country, and more.  It was a happy, happy week! Enjoy my friends.

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #21: Foolish

So this one was challenging, eh?  Not only were we all talking about how this one appeared to be a struggle, but only six of us actually submitted!  That’s the lowest week we’ve had yet!  I’ll have to come up with something exciting for the next one to get you all back in the swing of it. hahaha.  For me, I (again) thought I’d have no problem since my kids throw foolishness around like confetti.  But it was such a busy week there weren’t any moments for laid back foolishness that I could capture with my phone.  Sure they were foolish (they always are) but it was always on the way to something, or during dinner or… something.  So, I was shocked that I had NOTHING.  Luckily (?!) technology screwing me over came to the rescue hahaha.  Phew! (?!)  So, let’s see what we’ve got this week shall we?:

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #20: Craft

Can you believe we just completed Week 20?!  This challenge has been so fun and I am so looking forward to the next twenty weeks!

This week I thought I’d tap into the crafting base of the community and see what works of art people are working on.  From delicious food to coloring to crochet and even to creating a human (!) we ran the gamut of creativity this week.  Nicely done everyone.  I must admit I found this one difficult – we oddly didn’t do anything too crafty this week so I had to think outside the box.  Thankfully my daughter’s school art show came to the rescue! Phew.  Let’s see everyone’s work, shall we?

Introducing Parade Portraits!

I’m so excited to announce a *new* mini session offering.  As you know, I don’t focus too hard on mini sessions, but, after last year’s 4th of July Parade here in Hingham, I realized it was the perfect opportunity to do a similar setup as my famous Halloween Mini Sessions – only patriotic style!  So many families will already be right here in Downtown Hingham for the Parade – it goes right by the studio – and everyone will already be decked out in the patriotic outfits – there’s no reason NOT to stop by!  Scroll through the photos of my adorable model to learn more details.

As you can see, there are two backdrops to choose from.  The flag backdrop is best suited for kids 4.5 feet and under (or kids that are seated).  The star backdrop will work for everyone else.

You do not need to book an appointment; just like Halloween, just drop in during my open hours (9 am through the end of the parade) and get your portraits taken.  Yes, I’ll be here for a little while after the parade as well.

You pay $20, fill out a form,  and you get a medium resolution digital file which will be emailed to you within the week.  It’s really that simple.  And really that fun!  As you can see, my friend here had a blast hanging out with me and being silly.

 

The studio will also be open for anyone needing a bathroom break, place to chance diapers, nurse, or even grab a drink of water.  It’s also a great place to stop by and get your Parade pins for a donation of $1 or more.  Pin sales support the parade so it can continue to be the amazing parade that it is year after year.  For more information on the pin fundraiser, you can read this article from The Hingham Journal.

I can’t wait to see what this event becomes.  I hope you’ll be there!  Let me know if you plan to come!

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #19: Gray

When I first put this challenge out into the group, it was “grey.”  It was pointed out that most Americans (and so far, all participants are American) spell it “gray” so I changed it.  How do you spell it?  I’ve always spelled it with an ‘e’.  I don’t know why but it makes more sense to me.  Such a fun little topic.

I chose grey/gray because it is my second favorite color.  I don’t think I need to point out what my very favorite obviously is (ahem, green, ahem), but I know grey/gray is an odd one for a favorite.  I love how it’s calming and can be deep.  I love that it compliments every other color.  I love how clean and smart it can look in decor – as a wall color it’s extremely neutral yet it’s not beige (which, while can be awesome, I’m more of a cooler color gal).  I just love it!  So I thought it would be a great challenge.  I did not forsee how tough it would be.  At least at this time of year.  Everything is bursting with color!  Grey/gray…not so much!  Everyone who participated this week did a great job – I loved everything everyone did.  I was surprised that no one (including myself) went with a black and white/grayscale image.  I absolutely thought that was the direction I was going to go.  I still might tinker with that idea now that the challenge is done.  It’s never too late to add an image to any of the galleries if you either want to catch up or, just get inspired to take another shot!  Anyway.  Here’s the gallery!  Great job everyone!

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.

-Kerry

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #18: Flowers

This week’s theme was suggested by a member of the challenge community and it was the perfect time for such a great suggestion; spring has certainly sprung!  Everyone did a really lovely job with this one.  This gallery is so refreshing and looking at it you can almost feel the fresh spring air surrounding you.  I hope you enjoy it!  Great job everyone!

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.

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.

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.
