Photography Camp with Irish Eyes Photography –

A new and exciting endeavor!

Photography Camp, Irish Eyes Photography, Weymouth MA

After many requests and figuring out all the fine details, I’m happy to announce it’s finally here:  Photography Camp!   Here are all the specifics:

For ages 11-16, this is a 5 week camp where campers will learn the basics of photography.  Composition, light, focus, camera settings, you name it.  At the end of the camp, there will be a showcase where campers and their families can come and see the amazing images created during the camp.  Here are the specific details:

  • TIME: Thursdays, 3:30-4:30 Starting May 25th and ending June 22nd.
  • PLACE: We will meet at Webb Memorial State Park in North Weymouth.
  • Each camper will choose their favorite image from the experience to have framed and revealed in a gallery showcase at a later date.
  • After the gallery, camper will be able to take their framed artwork (print size 11×14) home to enjoy and be proud of forever.
  • Camp is limited to 15 campers per session
  • COST: $350.00
  • Each camper will also get a camp t-shirt to wear!

This announcement is less than 24 hours old (having been introduced during my first ever Facebook Live – feel free to watch if you’d like!  I also introduce another awesome and new offering so it’s worth a watch) and I’ve already got people signed up.  So this is really exciting.  Of course, I’ve already had some questions that aren’t answered in the above information so let’s get those answered right here!

Q:  Will you be offering more camp sessions?  My child is already booked at those times. 

A:  I say with full hope, YES! I think this could be a really exciting way to get to know more people in the area and explore another really exciting part of the art of photography.  As you all know I absolutely love working with kids, so I would love for this to be a repeat adventure.  I would love to offer one during the summer on a Wednesday or Thursday mid morning.  If you’re interested in that, please email me and maybe we can get a group going.

Q: Will you offer camps for younger campers?  What about older campers?

A: I definitely foresee a younger group being an option.  I would love to do 8-11 and 12-18.   As for grown-ups – well, as discussed in the Facebook Live stream, there is huge interest in an evening camp that involves lessons and drinks.  I think that could be just about the most fun we parents could have on a random evening, don’t you?!  So, if you’re looking to sign up a younger or older camper, please email me so I can have an idea of interest and set something up.  Bonus if you can offer up scheduling ideas so we can figure out what works best for everyone.


If more questions arise I’ll update this post.  In the meantime, I can’t wait to take this journey with all of you!  And thanks in advance for being a part of the conversation that helps mold this into its best possible existence!

Speaking of being part of the conversation – I’ve been thinking over the last day that we need a great camp name.  Anyone have any fun ideas?  Camp Focus?  Camp F Stop?  Crop Camp? Camp Don’t Say Cheese?  Hahaha.  Give me your most creative camp name and yours might be the one that I pick!

Newborn Photography featuring an Andy’s Room tribute, Thor the God of Thunder, and a tribute to a relative taken too soon.

Let’s dive in to this incredibly fun session.

When a client returns, it’s the highest honor I can receive and when they become lifelong clients, it’s the best feeling in the world.  This adorable baby is the youngest and newest sibling of the first newborn I ever worked with.*  And while I did his older brother’s newborn portraits as well, older brother is best known around these parts as Super Ben.

Now it’s Andy’s turn.  And when you’re name is Andy, and your family is made up of Pixar/Disney superfans, you get special setups just for you.  How FUN is this?!  Andy’s last name also rhymes nicely with Thor.  So his nickname, while in utero, was Thor D’Amore.  So obviously we needed a Thor shot as well.  The entire costume was made by his grandmother.  She is one talented (and lovely!) lady!  So she’s made many things for our sessions over the years  I especially love the button on the cape.

I am a sucker for milk spots (the tiny white dots babies get on their faces (technically called milia).  Andy’s were so lovely over the bridge of his nose.  I had to get a close up.

I’ve worked on three newborn sessions with these clients now.  They are definitely fans of props and images with a story.  Their ideas are always creative and fun and we have a blast putting them together.  Of all the ideas, Of all the setups – this next one is my favorite.

Andy’s grandfather passed away at a young age.  From what I’ve hear, he was a lovely man who was adored by his family.  Andy and his grandfather share a middle name so they decided to pay tribute to him.  Here, Andy lies in a suitcase, wrapped in the sleeve of his grandfather’s favorite shirt, with images of his grandfather surrounding him.  Atop the suitcase sits Grandfather’s sunglasses.

The “arm” wrapped around this sweet little boy gets me every time.   Yup, now I need to wipe my eyes again.

Thank you so much, D’ Family!  You’re the best and I adore you all so very much.  It is such an honor working with you and I cannot wait for our special session up in Maine this summer!!! Stay tuned, the rest of ye!

*if you want to see how far I’ve come since the early newborn years, take a look at that first session.  Oh my.

Hey everyone!  The blog is back in action!

2016 was the year the blog died around here, but it’s time to bring it back!

I’ll be updating regularly with lots of images and lots of other fun stuff as well.  Getting back to one of my favorite parts of the business makes me so excited. Many of my 2016 clients were private people who didn’t want their session shared (which I completely honor) so I fell out of my routine. Excuses excuses!

For those clients who were happy to have their images posted, you can see all of them in the individual portfolio pages of my newly updated site.  How fantastic to start freshly with family portraits – one of my main focuses as a photographer.

Ironically, the last post on here is from the Halloween Mini Sessions back in October (oy!).  It’s ironic because that’s the day I met this wonderful mum!  She drove by and saw the event and immediately pulled over and asked for my info.  Since then we’ve had many a session planned but every. single. time. we got rained or snowed out!  We finally gave up and decided to wait until Spring.

Well Spring is finally here and our patience has been rewarded.  We got a GORGEOUS day in the hazy sun up at Emery Estate here in Weymouth.  We played hide and seek, we ran around, we hunted for tree nuts in the trees, and we went on bug finding expeditions.  My little friend here is two years old and as anyone who is a parent of a two year old knows, you’ve got to let them be the boss if you want them to cooperate in a situation like a portrait session.  She enjoyed being the boss and I enjoyed getting sneaky shots of everyone looking absolutely amazing when they didn’t even realize it.

There are SO many awesome images from this gallery that I’d love to share but my dear clients want me to just share three.  As always, your privacy is quite important to me so I’m happy to oblige and grateful that I get to share some at all.  I am so excited to now know this family.  I hope this is only just the first time we get to work together.  Maybe one day I can do a shoot just focused on dad’s EPIC beard.  Ha!

Happy Spring, everyone.
