to love where you live is special

This weekend I got to take some shots of my friend Suzy’s amazing Dublin townhouse; she sadly has to move in a few days & wanted some pics to remember it by!

Sometimes it feels silly taking photographs of a house, just the humble abode where you live. Eventually we move on, we begin to love new places. But when I look back at photos I’ve taken of MY previous homes, I’m always so glad I bothered! A photograph can re-jig a million little memories that we may have forgotten otherwise, and sometimes a wee rush of love comes with it.

day trip to paris

My good friend Anna & I hadn’t seen each other in ages..being that we live in different countries. So we decided to meet up & have a little day trip to my favourite city in the world – PARIS!! Where better to have a mammoth catch up over endless amounts of food & glasses of wine?

It started with a VERY early morning flight from a foggy Dublin airport….
