Sitting Pretty, Baby and Family Photography by Pure Purple

When a baby has worked out how to sit up by themselves, it’s a really great stage in their development, they just seem delighted to be able to do this new trick and just smile away 🙂 I love to photograph babies at this stage, although this wee man was quite early at sitting by himself, he brought along his gorgeous Mummy and Daddy for a bit of support and a to get a photograph with them too!

How nice it’ll be for him in years to come to have photographs with his Mummy and Daddy!

The McDevitts, Family Photography by Pure Purple

Say Hello to the McDevitt Family! We love really busy family portrait sessions 🙂 Each child has a different personality to bring out and sometimes little ones are  busy, so getting them to all sit together is lots of fun! Its great to see parents having photographs taken with their children, it’s so important to be in pictures with your children so in years to come they’ll have something precious to keep from their childhood.

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,  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 🙂

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

Family Portraiture by Pure Purple

Loving this family portrait, its really casual and cool – just like the boys in it!

When children get to older, it’s really great to take their portrait in a place that they (and you) love and incorporating something that’s important to them (for these boys it was the beach and football). It’s important for us that we also take images that the children like of themselves and (especially for boys) makes them look cool!

Tea for Two Teddy Bears Picnic, Portrait Photography By Pure Purple Studios

An example of how portrait photography can be different from the stereotypical white background!

We love to doing really fun things for our clients, and we’d love to do more styled portrait sessions like this one – it’s way more fun to get children interacting with more than just the camera. Here’s beautiful wee Megan and big bear having tea and buns 🙂 Megan also did some shots in the studio as well and pulled off the miss innocent expression brilliantly!

If you have an idea for a styled portrait session you’d like to do, give us a call, we’d love to hear from you!

Family Photography by Pure Purple Studios Convoy Co Donegal – Hazy Days of Summer

Oh how we wish the sun would make an appearance soon!

We did a wee project last summer called the Hazy Days of Summer, and had a great time capturing people having fun in the sun. We’ll be doing more small projects over the next few months – what sort of projects would you like to be involved in?

In the meantime – enjoy this glimpse of what last summer was like xx

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,  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.
