Nothing quite like Sisters – Newborn and Family Photography by Pure Purple,

Sisters have a great bond, and this Mommy and Daddy are blessed with three gorgeous girls ๐Ÿ™‚ it was great meeting them all to capture the excitement of their new little sister. Usually I photograph newborns as new as possible, typically around the 2 weeks new, because babies still curl up into the foetal positions we all love to see, and they are far sleepier so that I can move them around and they don’t mind, after 2 weeks babies are far more alert and not as squishy, but there are always exceptions to any rule, and at nearly 6 weeks old, this little lady was amazing, very squishy and lots of cute baby wrinkles ๐Ÿ™‚

Exist in Photographs – Family Portrait Photography by Pure Purple

It’s a phrase that’s been going around photography circles for a while, and it’s something we are constantly telling our clients, to exist in photographs, for your children and future generations. But, we hear all the reasons and excuses, from when I’ve lost a few pounds to when I’ve got more time, the list of reasons is long and varied, but at the heart if it, your children don’t care what you look like, they love you regardless, they care about the connection you have as a family.

It’s something that I’ve wanted done for some time now, but, ย just as the painters house is never painted and the builders house is never fixed, we never get round to photographing ourselves or our children. So the other day, we had a few minutes and thought, let’s do this…! I didn’t have a chance to run and get my hair done, or get a special outfit on, but I love them all the same, and I hope that Ava and Ella will love them when they are older.

None of this would have happened if Connor hadn’t have taken them (thank you so much x), I have to return the jesture, because it’s not just Mom’s who need this it’s Dad’s too. We also are well overdue a family photograph, so that’s next on the list ๐Ÿ™‚

So come on people – exist in photographs, with your children, for your children.

Maternity and Newborn Photography By Pure Purple Studios Co Donegal – The O’Rourke Family

Meet the O’Rourke family! We had the pleasure of meeting them when they were a twosome for Ciara’s maternity session, and then a threesome for Kydan’s newborn session. Kydan was just 7 days old and did brilliantly, he was a very sleepy, happy boy. We really enjoyed creating the photographs for them, we wanted to go in a different direction to the black and white family shots, to the creamy tones which show off Ciara’s amazing colouring, we think the finished pictures are beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

Let us know what you think!

Family Portraiture By Pure Purple Studios Co Donegal – That awkward age…

I think its true to say that some children when they approach their teenage years can feel a little awkward about themselves, and the thought of standing for a photographer to get their picture taken is right down there with having to clean their room, or looking after their younger brother or sister – you can see the eyes rolling and the huffing now can’t you? When your kids get to that sort of age, they have sometimes outgrown a studio setting and they want to know that they will look cool in the photographs, while as parents, we want happy smiling photographs of our children. We try and get both sorts of shots for our clients, ย because the children of the family are also our clients and we want to make them happy too and do you know sometimes, it’s good to record how your children are at this age, if that means they don’t smile, take a cool image of them not smiling!

We did this session some time ago now, and Mum was worried that the older children might not be too happy at the prospect of having photographs taken, but once they realised that we weren’t going to make them do anything they weren’t happy with, they loosened up and enjoyed themselves and both Mum and kids got what they wanted!

We photographed Molly before when we photographed her Mommy and Daddy’s (Ciara and David’s) wedding a few years ago, so we knew the family quite well and loved meeting the newest family member Joe. He was an absolute star in front of the camera, and I think we really captured his cute and cheeky nature and Molly as a very proud big sister. We love to watch as our clients families grow and be there to document it for them – being their family’s photographer.

This is another catch up on our blogging from a session at the beginning of the year – its hard to believe this little lady has a little brother now ๐Ÿ™‚ This was her session for her 1st birthday, we did a cake smash at the end, which I think we love doing more than the kids! The messier the better I say! The composite at the end is a special product we do especially for birthday cake smashes – give us a call if you would like more details on it xxx
