Celebrating the men in our lives by TaraD
This weekend we are celebrating the men in our lives.
The one’s who have put plaster’s on scraped knees, built tree houses, cooked dinners, taught skills from tying shoe laces to writing your name. The men who are proud of their children when they achieve a new goal no matter how big or small that goal is.
The men who are also there to pick us up when we fall.
I am going to share something personal here…
Last week we paid tribute to my grandad and at his funeral I was given some photographs of my father who passed away when I was a child. It is a school photograph so he is roughly the same age as our son Cailean is now and the first thing I thought of is ‘that looks like Cailean’.
It gave a sense of comfort holding a piece of paper with an image printed on it from what must be 55 or more years ago. I wonder did the person taking that picture then realise how precious and valuable that image would be some 50 plus years later? It is an image that in another 10 years time I will show to Cailean and in 20 years time who knows he may show his son or daughter.
I know it isn’t as easy for others to photograph their families and capture those magic moments (otherwise I would be out of business a long time ago lol!). I often get asked by people, “how can I stop them being blurred, under/over exposed” etc and I suggest that they come on one of our workshops to learn how to shoot like a pro lol.
But for those of you who do want a quick and fun selection of images to capture the love between father and child, I want to offer something to you…
Daddy and me mini sessions will be available throughout the months of June and July at a massively reduced fee of €129 (usually €200). As this is about giving back and not about making money (we are only covering our time) 20% of every shoot will also be going to the fantastic CUH charity. We have been working with this charity recently and I can tell you that it is a fantastic service offering “a wide range of life changing and life saving equipment and services for patients attending Cork University Hospital”.
Both Dave and myself are happy to support in any way we can and we hope that our mini sessions can help raise some much needed funds for the charity.

Finally to the men in my life who have influenced who I am today, my dad and my grandad I miss you today and always.
To my own husband, Dave who doesn’t always get enough praise for what he does day in and day out. Thank you I couldn’t do it without you!
To all the dad’s today, we thank you, we love you and wish you a very Happy Father’s Day….. x
