Sarah and David got dressed up and we headed to Doneraile Park in Cork. Our plan was to get some fashion editorial portraits with a bit of fun in the mix.

Autumn is a great season for many reasons, the obvious being the colors of leaves, but also the color temperature of the light. The light of early mornings and late afternoon compliments the subtle warm hues of ambers, yellows and rusty reds which make Autumn.

Portraits in the Park


We didn’t go with any big brief to what we wanted. It was Sarah and David’s first photo shoot of this kind and hopefully not there last. “Naturals” is a word that came to mind. We had a change of style of the evening shoot and the Cafe Townhouse Doneraile obliged with somewhere to change. Shoot over we all went back for Coffee and Cake… yum yum…


Doneraile Park is a gem for Photographing Outdoor Portraits anytime time of year, Wedding, Family’s or Couples and there is plenty of wildlife to see, a added bonus.
