I've wrote about Ciara before when she was only 11 months old. She grew up soooo much since then! She learned to walk and all she is saying now is "What's this?" and "What's that?". She is a proper woman  - loves jewellery, loves buttons, and getting moody when something is not going her way! ))) She gave her parents grief when she broke glass on the coffee-table and a porcelain dog, so she was banned from the sitting room for quite a while. But overall they are happy with her and non-return policy was applied when they got her anyway, so she is a keeper! ))) Below are the pictures of this little angel aka double-trouble:

Blogging frequently is hard, so for a long time I wanted to start a regular section, something that I'll have to do on a certain day once a week, but just couldn't come up with the idea. So, yesterday I was already on my way to bed, when I noticed this:
the box was just sitting there in a new spotlight, that was recently attached to the kitchen unit. This box was left over after Christmas and someone remembered about it and just took it out. I loved the way light was falling on it and took a photo. "So, I was sitting here, and then it just hit me! " - as well-known Vodafone advert says! As a result, IN THE SPOTLIGHT is my new regular section. I think it's gonna be about interesting people, amazing things, something that caught my attention, or maybe I'm just gonna place stuff under the spotlight and take a picture of it! ))) By the way, I must say that I resisted the temptation and hadn't had a single chocolate from the box! First - I'm detoxing after xmas, second - I was exercising my will power that I thought I didn't have! )))
For the last photo, I simply didn't focus the lens and that's what I got! I think this photo can be used as a texture. So, If anyone wants it, shoot me an e-mail and I'll send a high-res copy! )))

That was my last photoshoot for 2009 that I haven't blogged about yet. I must say these kids are good craic! They were looking forward to seeing a photographer (o-o-o-o, scary!) in their house and as soon as I started talking to them we connected and they felt very relaxed in front of my camera. You know in some families kids fight. Not that they don't love each other, but they just kinda annoy each other, often on purpose (that was the case with myself and my brother anyway. We are friends now though! ). The way I felt about these three though, was that they are very close to each other. Even if you don't know them you'd feel they share something special. So, we had a very active hour of playing with favourite toys, chasing bubles and even playing pool, but in our own way! Have a look

I love the expressions on next three:

So, if you are planning any activity with your family and kids and want to capture special moments you share together, contact me through the form above! See you!
Have a nice weekend!

Hi there! I hope you had brilliant holidays and I want to wish you only the best things for the new year! I was born in a year of a tiger, so I hope 2010 is full of nice surprises for me. Go on the tigers! 
Now, The Big Freeze... I know it brought a lot of trouble and worry to a lot of people. A lot has been said on TV and in the papers. It brings a lot of worry to me when my husband travels to work and I stay at home hoping that he'll get there safe. And then I worry again when he travels back home from work... On the other hand, I love love love snowy and cold winter, probably because I come from a country where winter lasts about 5 months and there is loadza snow, heh! So, for me winter associates with mittens, red cheeks, skating and skiing, pushing each other into fluffy soft snow and all things winter! And in the last couple of weeks it feels a lot like home to me... I'm smilling when I see kids sliding down the hills and screaming from happiness! There is a lot to see around the country, like frozen lakes for example. You won't see that too often in Ireland! It's particulary beautiful in the golden hour, around 15:00 or 15:30 when the sun starts to set, but is still shining behind the hill. The snow sparkles and you can see the most amazing colours at that time! So, don't be afraid! Go out and enjoy a wonderful day! )))

Unfortunately, little ones get hurt the most...
