FAMILY SESSION - SLIGO PHOTOGRAPHER

Image
This is me and my parents when I was about a year old.
I truly treasure having this memory in print. Looking back at an almost 40 year old photograph makes me warm inside. The thought of my two daughters showing this photo to their children and grandchildren when I am gone, that makes it even more special...
So, even if you don't think you have enough photographs of you when you were a child with your parents, we can still give that precious gift to your children...

My family sessions are relaxed and stress-free. We meet in the convenience of your own home so you don't have to think about getting everyone in the car! And once you have put in your order, I will personally deliver it to your door step too.

Looking at photos on your screen is nice... but holding a beautiful linen album full of professionally printed photographs that will last a lifetime... yeah, that's even better...

Catching a quiet moment...

Wedding tip: Your wedding day will pass by so quickly, so do try to take a few minutes after the ceremony, just the two of you, to let it all sink in. It is your day after all - the guests can wait a few minutes for you to arrive at the reception for the big party!

I hope you have all had a lovely summer! One of the highlights of mine was photographing this epic wedding in County Roscommon. It was so relaxed and the couple were so much fun, I loved every single minute of it. 💕

Page boys and flower girls are always so excited to be part of your big day. 

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what their roles should be, but if you give them simple tasks such as handing out programmes or holding rings, you make them feel important and valued.Tell them how much it means to you that they are there to help and they will remember forever how they made a difference on your wedding day. ♥

WALL DISPLAY SUNDAY - ECLECTIC ELEGANCE - SARA LEAHY PHOTOGRAPHY - SLIGO PHOTOGRAPHER

Image
Mix and match to your heart's content! "Eclecticism is the principle or practice of choosing or involving objects, ideas, and beliefs from many different sources." (Collins Dictionary)

An eclectic wall display can contain anything you want really, mix larger pieces with smaller ones, use different frames and motifs and if you have a lovely mirror, sure throw that into the mix too!
The key to keeping this type of wall display looking well, is to fill up the space that you have allocated to it and to use a neutral background so the display can shine in it's own right.

WALL ART - BIG IS BEAUTIFUL - SARA LEAHY PHOTOGRAPHY - SLIGO PHOTOGRAPHER

WALL DISPLAY SUNDAY - BIG IS BEAUTIFUL For the ultimate in impact - go big or go home! And by big, I mean BIG. 8x10" is not big.. 
11x14" is not big...
20x30" or even 40x60" - that's more like it. Go on, be a bit extravagant and go BIG when you are planning your next wall display! Your friends and family will be in awe when they see it! If having your own image this big scares you, a lovely option is to take a photograph of you and your loved ones standing in a beautiful surrounding. (Think a field of wildflowers, the forest or the beach...) This way the landscape will take up most of the space in the photograph but the focus will still be on you!

WALL ART USING SHELVES - SARA LEAHY PHOTOGRAPHY - SLIGO PHOTOGRAPHER

Image
WALL DISPLAY SUNDAY - SHELF DISPLAY A great way of showcasing a selection of smaller frames, is by displaying them on a shelf. Not only can you add pieces as time goes by, but it is so easy to change the whole display should you get tired of it! For a cohesive look, keep the frames the same colour and paint the shelf the same colour as the wall. As the only holes you need to make are those for the shelf itself, this would be a perfect solution if you are renting. Put one up over your sofa or even fill a whole wall and watch how your photos and trinkets turn into a beautiful display! Just make sure the shelves are out of reach of little ones, in my house at least, the little rascals are very good at tearing things down..!

Wishing you all a very happy Swedish midsummer! 

Midsummer in Sweden, where I am from, is a really important day. It is a day when you gather for a lovely meal outdoors, sing lots of songs, wear flower crowns and dance like frogs around the maypole. 

I'm not quite sure how the frogs got into the picture but you can't have midsummer without them...! 🐸 

Glad midsommar! Happy midsummer!
