Thought I’d give you a peek at some of the baby photographs of my baby Luke!
I will admit I have been so busy since Luke’s arrival that I haven’t been quite as snap happy as I was with my first, so at 4 weeks old, I thought it would be nice to get photographer Corrine Crennan to come to the house and take some memorable photos of Luke. Definitely so worth it!!!
For those of you who may have noticed a lack of blog posts of late, the picture below may explain why!! While the girls in the studio have been crazy busy with wedding orders, for me the last 3 months have been a whirlwind of nappies, late night feedings and general oohing over our new arrival – Luke. Now that things have somewhat settled and I have time to type, I thought I’d share some pics!
So, this was my second baby, therefore I was more prepared (or scared!) of what was to come. My first boy was 10 days late so I convinced myself the second would be early – this wasn’t to be!! So nearly a week overdue, fed up and wanting this baby here, I called local photographer Corrine Crennan and asked her to take a photo of me 41 weeks pregnant. I laughed on the phone when booking it and said I would probably have to cancel as the appointment was a week after my due date, but lo and behold, Luke held on and I ended up in Corrine’s studio with no sign of movement!
I refused to allow anyone photograph me with my bump first time round, so second time round I decided to embrace the fuller me and get some memorable pregnancy bump shots taken. 2 days later Luke arrived in a hurry and here he is just over 1 week old (a big baby at 9 pounds 11 ounces) – what a difference a week can make!
I’ll post some more pics soon…
And the winner is…Emer Doran. Congrats Emer & Thank You to everyone who entered!

Ailbhe recently painted a ‘Fairy Portrait’ commission for Sarah – a gorgeous bubbly little girl who dreams of being a pretty fairy! We started by getting some photographs from her Mum. We combined these photographs to get the best angle for Sarah’s face and her hair. We also included her favourite teddy – Molly!
A magical floral scene was painted in watercolour and Sarah, the fairy, was sat upon a flower stem clutching Molly.
Do you know a little girl who would like to see themselves transformed into a fairy, perhaps for a special birthday gift. See our custom art shop for details or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
