Leah + Michele | County Kerry couple portrait

My first shoot after the lockdown this year. It was such a relief to get back into it. My cameras had been out of the bag on and off, to catch shots of the kids, but it wasn’t until we all took a trip down to Kerry for a family holiday that I got to shoot with a couple again (don’t take that the wrong way, kids, you’re the biz).

It was worth the wait anyway. I loved this. Leah and Michele came up from Cork for the shoot and I jumped in the back of the car with them for the drive to Dunquin. It’s a place of stunning beauty and getting to explore it a little with these two was something I won’t forget. They’re so good together and the shoot was over too quick.

Thankfully, weddings start again for me THIS WEEK. I’m delighted, despite the masks, etc.

Here are some of my favourites. I hope you like them.

If you’re in the mood for another couple shoot, you could check out Lauren + Mike’s north photos from north Antrim. That’s another wild and rugged place, with more coastal beauty than you can shake a stick at. Take a look HERE.
