When looking at photographs of their vacation, this family of five from New Jersey won’t just remember the beautiful Irish landscapes or the colourful pubs of Temple Bar.
No. They will remember little faces covered in sugar from the cronuts they bought at Temple Bar Market, the seagulls they fed by the Liffey after missing the train for Howth, the seals, the crazy guys jumping from the rocks in Howth (and one falling sideways), the wrestler star “Edge” passing in The Cliff Stop café (while the kids were holding a plastic figurine of said Wrestler – missing a leg. What are the chances, right?) and the lovely musicians initiating them to guitar and ukulele.
You know what I love most about my style of photography? How the best photographs come from the unplanned moments. All I have to do is stay open to the unexpected, the mundane, the simple moments and connections, observe and capture it.
Thank you again Lexi for hiring me to capture this special family vacation for you!
