Walking along the beach always brings some calmness to my heart. The sound of the waves, the breeze playing with my hair and the sea shells catching my eyes every so often. A beach is a great place for family memories, so many lovely opportunities for play, a great...
Meeting little Andy and Emma from Life with Tiny Humans
A few weeks ago, a photo of a newborn baby caught my eye on Instagram. So I clicked on the picture and reached the account of Life With Tiny Humans by Emma O’Leary for the first time. As I was for a while thinking of offering my photography services to other parents, I thought it would be nice to get an opinion on my photography from somebody not involved in my circle of family/friends. I gained some courage and emailed Emma, a new mum of three boys, with a lifestyle/natural newborn photography offer. To my great surprise and relief as well, Emma said yes and we arranged to meet in her house for the photo session.
Meeting Emma felt like meeting an old friend whom I had not seen for a while, the conversation moved from college and travels to nap times, breastfeeding and tantrums in supermarkets. So we were chatting away and I was taking pictures of baby Andy and his gorgeous mum. Later when the bigger boys, Luke and Olly, were showing me their playroom, I just wanted to ask them: guys can I move in too? I was admiring their playroom and how stylish the boys looked, I felt a bit like Deirdre Whelan or Hugh Wallace from Home of the Year when entering different rooms in Emma’s house, saying sentences to myself like a fantastic use of space! I love these frames! The chalk paint is brilliant! Look at the armchair!
To cut long story short, meeting Emma and her family exceeded my expectations click here to read about her experience with Little Things Photography and check out Emma’s blog www.lifewithtinyhumans. It is full of great inspiration, helpful parental tips and amazing ideas you can create for your home or try with your little ones. (One of my favourite posts is The ultimate rainy day activities for kids, the masking tape race course is just fantastic!)

"Michaela Mac Donnell came to our house one sunny Sunday morning and spent a few hours with us capturing our life as a new family. She is such a lovely person and so easy to work with. It was like having a friend in the house as opposed to a stranger and she just observed us and took photos, with as little intervention as possible. Her use of natural light, beautiful composition and ability to capture the best of us meant I got exactly what I was looking for and far more beyond that. Thank you Michaela."
