Jack is 4 month old and Jack is one of my first babies to come back after doing the newborn session. It is incredible to see how different he looks. The first two pictures are the proof.
Can not wait for three more month when Jack will come back to my little studio for another fun, loving session!
I'm delighted to announce that in 2012 we are offering free business headshort portraits for Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter or other networking purposes to those who are unemployed or new to the jobs market.
Getting back to work if you have been made redundant or laid off can be a daunting prospect at the moment, with the market flooded with qualified candidates. As a local business we hope to make the task a bit easier by offering free business portraits to the unemployed to help members of the local community develop their online appearance and improve their job prospects.
'With the current job market so competitive, many employers are now looking at social media networks as an extension to job applicant's CVs, and the problem is most people don't have a professionally composed portrait. Searching for a job today often involves social media sites like Linkedin and Facebook for networking with potential employers. In order to make a good impression you really need to use a decent professional headshot for your profile photo. Nuria will photograph clients at her studio near Kildare Village who can then download their portraits for free. Their headshots can be used on CVs, Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.
“A good picture can have an impact on people searching for work. People get so many first impressions from what they see online. We're a local business and we want to give back to our local community. I think that everyone should have an equal opportunity to compete for an open position, If a simple headshot is going to do that then everyone should have the chance to get one done.”
We will be taking appointments for shoots on the following dates in our studio and we hope to add more dates during the year.
Friday 27th January
Friday 10th February
Places are limited to 50 initially so contact us soon to confirm an appointment. Places are on a first come first served basis but once each date is booked up we will keep you informed of future dates as they are confirmed. Click here to register your interest.
With Christmas just around the corner, last Sunday I was in Newbridge (Co. Kildare) with three fantastic local photographers for a great project. For once, us photographers weren't working with wedding dresses, cute newborns or engagement pictures, nope, there were just cookies. Lots and lots of Christmas cookies.!
Last year, fellow photographer and friend Lisa O'Dwyer from Lisa O'Dwyer Photography, invited myself and Christina Brosnan from Brosnan Photographic to go to her house in Newbridge to help to make Christmas coookies. She has wonderful recipes that have been passed down from her Grandmother! Both of the girls are Americans and they both used to do this every Christmas with their own mothers, and, now they're living in Ireland they wanted to continue the tradition. So last Sunday we were joined by Elisha Clarke from Elisha Clarke Photography, another talanted photographer based in Dublin.
So while we were rolling, baking, icing, decorating, chatting and laughing, I took my camera and photographed a little of what was going on. I love this new tradition that we have now! Not only did I get to learn about peanut butter cookies ( by the way too yummy!) but it is great to spend time with beautiful, talented photographers!
Thank you so much girls for a lovely evening and a massive thank you to Lisa for bring all of us together and letting us invade your kitchen!
Can't wait to see who might join us next year!
