2018 – What a year!

WOW! Another year over and what a year it’s been. I have loved meeting so many wonderful families and new little babies. It brings me so much joy being able to capture epic memories for you guys!

2018 has been one of the toughest years of my life with the passing of my best friend, Jess. I honestly can’t thank you amazing people enough for your kind support and understanding over the past few months. You are the reason I love this job and what I do.

Here’s a look over the past year and lots of adorable babies. It’s a pity I can’t show you them all but hope you enjoy!

Here’s to 2019!

The Treanor family

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a session, but when I met The Treanor family I knew I had to share this one.

It was a two-take session because the weather got the better of us on the first day! What odds.. It meant twice the fun, twice the crack and twice the adventure and these 5 were totally up for that!!

I love my studio sessions but being outdoors means the little ones can run around and express themselves, allowing me to capture who they really are. It isn’t about having the perfect pose or looking at the camera, I want to photograph the bond between everyone, the laughing, the tears, the stories.

Autumn Mini Sessions

So Autumn is just around the corner.. or the way i’m currently feeling it’s already here. Summer clothes are packed away and pumpkin spice lattes are back! (no i’m kidding – plain lattes for me)

With all hype and excitement I’ve decided to run my autumn mini session weekend again this year.  These sessions are the perfect opportunity for you to capture your family, have a great time and make memories.

What to expect? 

These session’s will run on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th October at Loughmacrory Lough (in the middle of Loughmacrory village.)

We will go for short walk, no fuss or no props and have a laugh. I don’t do posed! I like to capture you and your family as you are. The sessions are 30 minutes long and can be up to 5 members and pets!

Don’t worry about the weather.. If it is really bad we can reschedule, but finger’s crossed for a nice crisp Autumn day with lots of colourful leaves to jump in. Wellies and coats are always advisable, just in case, but it will add to the experience.

Speaking of coats, you’re probably thinking of what to wear? Comfort is key! You want to look yourself and be happy. Don’t worry about matching – I recommend sticking to plain clothing – avoiding logos or busy patterns, these can be distracting. Autumn colours are recommended!

Investment?

30 minute session @ £55

5 digital images send via an online gallery, with option for extra purchases.

T&C’s will apply**

To book just get in contact with me via here or on my facebook page!

Hello…

 

Hey… so this is my first blog post in a very long time… & on my new blog. Exciting!!

I thought it would be useful having somewhere where I can talk and show more of my photography without taking up your newsfeed or grids!

But anyway… I’m Gerarda,

I have loved photography for as long as I can remember; always running around with a camera, I’ve a studio at my home just outside Omagh, Co.Tyrone where I love to capture those special moments for families and their new little additions.

I specialise in beautiful and natural portrait photography capturing precious moments and special bonds in your family life.

Families, children and newborn sessions are my favourite.

Every session is different; I love getting to know each family individually and planning what works best for them to allow their personalities to sparkle.  Meeting new families and being able to share their precious moment’s remains to be my greatest pleasure. I feel so lucky to get to do the job I love and am honoured to capture these moments in your life.

To enquire about a booking a shoot with me just get in contact

I look forward to creating wonderful memories with you.

Gx
