Baby blogging

Baby Ethan

Hee hee. I had this post all drafted up last night and I see this morning that Gingerpixel is on a cute baby toes buzz too! Can’t wait to see the rest of her shots as the first one is stunning; I have so much to learn about baby photography.

Anyway, back to business: I was in kind-of-sunny Tramore visiting the ever-cute Ethan this weekend. I will be taking tons of pics of him over the coming weeks and months. So, to prevent this couple’s blog from becoming a baby blog (and scaring poor Eoghan away all together) I’ve created a Tumblr for Ethan.

It’s going to be mostly for friends and family who don’t get to see him that often, but if you’re a fan of cute baby pics feel free to check it out.

I heart Fight Like Apes

Una has some great vids and chat about how much these guys rocked at Oxegen, and Lilli, of course, has awesome pics. I was on a regular punter ticket, so just showed up early to get near the front and maybe get a few shots with fiddy (that’s my 50mm 1.4.).

But, as you can see, about ten other photographers were waiting to pounce in the small pit area. I’ve never seen this many photographers in the new band stage before! But FLA are well worth the buzz and they were brilliant; I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen them live and every time they’ve been spine-tingling good. Frontwoman MayKay is phenomenal.

Was great to hear their new single, ‘Something Global’, live. You can dowload it here.

Just a few more pics of the latest addition to the family; and yes, he now has a name! Ethan is his first name and Iulian (after his dad) is his middle name.

He and Kel stayed with Eoghan and me for a few days, so we got to look at him in all his sleeping, eating, pooping glory. He kind of transfixes you when he’s sleeping, we just couldn’t stop staring at him – so tiny! so perfect! He’s gone back to the circus now but I’ll see him again on Friday, yay.

All of these pics were just adhoc shots taken around the apartment – I hope to do a proper session this weekend.

Kelly is doing really well, and still gorgeous despite only getting about 45 minutes sleep a night! (No skin retouching on this pic AT ALL)

Kids, baby bumps and flowers, that’s all I seem to be shooting these days! Here’s my little cousin baby Joey, whose around five months old. They’re great at this age – so easily entertained! This cute little guy was full of laughs and gurgles, just adorable.
We were in really low light, so I shot these at a high ISO, really wide aperture and in black and white, although they’re still a bit noisy.

Showtime at the circus

Circus booking office

A few shots I took last weekend while visiting the family show, Circus Vegas while it was in Booterstown (it’s there until this Sunday). I took most of the following backstage, as the dancers, performers (and horses!) were getting ready, taking breathers or practising.

The dancers have some serious eyelash action going on:

And these last few are the younger performers: My little cousin Kourtney, who presents the Shetland pony act (and does her own eye make-up!); Simone (wearing the pink hair piece), who is here for the summer and Lisa, practising her cloud swing skills (it’s only a few feet off the ground!).

Sowee

Cute pup

Apologies for the blogging hiatus, things have been a bit uppy downy and distracting. (And also, we got Mario Kart for the Wii. Oops.)

But now that my thumb has got some feeling back, I have returned.

How about a pic of a cute pup to make it better? You can’t not forgive an adorable face like that! He’s my aunt’s and he’s called Pepzi.

But just because we haven’t been posting, don’t think we haven’t been keeping ourselves in the bloggy loop.
