The more the merrier – a family of 6

The more the merrier, a family of 6!

A gift worth giving

I recently donated a photography session to a fundraising event in aid of The Hope Foundation in Dublin. This beautiful family of six were the lucky winners and I was so excited to meet them! With two boys and two girls, these parents sure have their work cut out for them - but they were the children were so sweet! One of these beautiful daughters was the one to win the charity draw, and the family couldn't have been more excited! I was so honoured to be asked to participate in this event, as it's such a great cause - the foundation is designed to protect street children and the underprivileged in India. So whilst I love an outdoor photo shoot in Dublin on any given day anyway, this one was extra special to me.

 

Photos at Airfield Estate

I'm sure you've heard me go on about how much I love Airfield Estate before, but I really can't stress enough how beautiful the grounds are - and how perfect they are for a quick family photo shoot! Nestled amongst 38 acres in Dundrum, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were out in the country - when in fact you are only 15 mins from the City! Airfield is also a charitable organisation, and a working farm so you are bound to come across many animals in their gardens. There are loads of old and beautiful trees in the estate which are perfect to kids to play on - you will always find me with my camera running around as the kids get used to me before a shoot (including my strange Aussie accent!). There are secret forests and hidden cubby houses that the little ones can play hide and seek in, while the parents take a seat on the park bench and soak up the fresh air and enjoy some peace.
