For the holidays, I surprised Amy with a studio portrait of our lovely mutt Summer.

Summer is a two-year-old rescue who traveled from South Carolina to New York where we adopted her in 2010 and we can not imagine our lives without her. She is energetic, lovable, curious and sometimes skittish…

As you can see from an outtake on the right, she did not like being under the studio lights. Fortunately with some careful preparation, I was able to capture the photo on the left within the first few frames.

Lesson learned, never under any circumstances try to photograph a dog by yourself in a studio.

Eric and Megan Lifestyle

The day before Eric and Megan’s destination wedding, they got dressed to the nines and we toured the countryside to the south of Kinsale, Ireland for a lifestyle photography session.

Our first stop was at the cliffs of Old Head Golf Links which offered scenic views, sandstone cliffs and a beautiful afternoon mist signature to Ireland.

Just north of Old Head was a small ruin with a memorial to the Lusitania. Surrounding the ruins are fields of tall grass, lush green from the nearby ocean cliffs.

After leaving Old Head, we drove west and stopped in the village of Timoleague. Its brightly colored homes and businesses were a great backdrop for photos and a quick lunch.

Surrounding the town of Timoleague are the remains of an abbey dating back to the 13th century.

Our final stop was along the coast of the Irish Sea.

Thanks to Eric and Megan for taking the time away from their destination wedding to travel the countryside.

Stay tuned for one more post about these two, coming soon!
