Maternity Photography in Markree castle
The idea was to create a unique day for mums to be in a beautiful venue - during a time you might not feel you usual self.
I know the feeling very well. January 2018 - on my dad's birthday - we got confirmation from my GP. We are expecting a baby. Over the moon - excited & scared. There is nothing really that can prepare you for your very personal rollercoaster ride.
Bing a photographer, I started researching "monthly maternity photo inspirations"... "counting down pregnancy in photos" etc. But in reality I wanted nothing less than having to pose and pretending to look pretty in front of a camera. A little gutted as I would have loved to document my full pregnancy journey in photographs.
Months 8 approached and I felt ready & energetic enough to organize a maternity shoot for other mums to be. I thought being pregnant myself it would be a great opportunity to connect and create a very personal memory.
Partnering with Make Up Artist Rebecca McCan & Artist Stephanie Hanlon we found a dream venue - simply perfect to treat mums to be - Markree Castle in Sligo.
It was a full day, a bit of a drive, but looking back the best day out I took during my pregnancy. Sweet treats, tea & cold drinks - while being treated to a make over & belly paint. I did take the opportunity to hop in front of my own camera to participate in this creative maternity shoot.
It's been well worth it and I can't wait to see prints in our nursery.
