❤ Baby Tristian at 8 weeks old ❤

Photos from this shoot were published in THE GUARDIAN IRELAND}

I absolutely love photographing Aoife and her family! You might remember their beautiful maternity shoot we did in June and then soon after that little
gorgeous baby Tristian arrived bringing so much joy and happiness to this wonderful family!

Aoife is originally from Tipperary Ireland and Leon is from South Africa. Aoife was crowned the international ROSE OF TRALEE 2008.
The Rose of Tralee International Festival is one of Ireland's largest and longest running festivals. The heart of the festival is the selection of
the Rose of Tralee which brings young women of Irish descent from around the world to Ireland for a global celebration of Irish culture.

You can read the FULL STORY here.

The day was great! Aoife invited me over for lunch before our shoot and let me just add here that Aoife makes some seriously delicious salads!
She is the salad queen! Aoife's parents were visiting from Ireland and it was so nice meeting them and having some great conversations and good laughs around the kitchen table! Geraldine you are amazing! I felt so spoilt and Aoife even gave me a gorgeous gift!

Then we got started with the shoot with the gorgeous Baby Tristian (previously known as BABY T at their maternity shoot).
Aoife said that she is always snapping photos of Baby Tristian and really wanted some special mom and baby and family photos from our shoot together.
I loved that idea as I believe there is something so special about a mother with her child and parents in the moment when they just look at their child
and you can see all the love and joy in their eyes, that is what I aimed to capture the love a parent has for their child and so we began and it was amazing!

I loved the indoor shots but I also especially loved the outdoor shots in their vineyard, that heavenly light the Lord graciously presented us with,
was just too beautiful, raising Baby Tristian to the sky in a moment of thanks for this baby blessing!

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him.
So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD."
{1 Samuel 1:27–28}

Thanks to Aoife and Leon and their amazing family for making me feel so welcome in their home!

May the Lord Jesus bless you both and your little wee man! ❤


❤ Love & Blessings ❤

Claudia, I love these images...but then again I love all your work, even if its not related to us. On this occasion however, thank you for capturing our precious moments so effortlessly and sensitively. You make us feel like you are not even there and yet when we see the images we think; how could we have missed you! Your approach is so natural and relaxed you put all of us at ease, whether it has been been with our beautiful maternity shoot, or our 6 week baby shoot; you a a true gem, a rare find. That is why I have recommended you to all our friends and family with such conviction and belief in the joy they will experience reliving those capsles of time you so magically capture! Your biggest fans; Aoife, Leon and Tristian xxx
