family photo swap at Emo Court County Laois with photog friend Christine Burns

This is my friend Christine Burns who is also a photographer. I met Christine through Twitter. When she left a comment on my blog, I thought I'd email her to see if she'd like to meet. We met up for lunch at Avoca and discovered we had some of the same photographer friends! Ireland is a really small world :)

Christine suggested we do a family photo swap. We have tons of pictures of our kids, but none of ourselves or as a family. I've been wanting to do this for a while, as I have no family portraits up of the O'Dwyers. So we decided to meet at Emo Court & Gardens in Emo, Co Laois to do the photo swap.

I took some photos of Christine and her family first while my family had a picnic lunch, and then Christine took some of my family. It was a fun project and can't wait to do it again!

And it's great to see that after more than 10 years of marriage, a couple can be so in love still! Cute!


  1. Awww, these are great! You guys look like you've had fun)) Very cute photos x

  2. Beautiful images Christine.. ones to cherish for sure. Such a wonderful feel to them all.

  3. Superb Lisa and Christine! Love the location and every photo is stunning!

  4. Thank you everyone for the positive comments. This was so fun! Can't believe we found that cool field of sunny wheat in Co Laois!

  5. Lisa I can't thank you enough, when I suggested this I had no idea I would get so many fab photos, I luv all the ones on your post and the whole collection of them. It is so nice to have ones of myself and Colin as I'm afraid our offical wedding ones leave a lot to be desired! I also learned so much from you while you posed us & made us laugh so much, ouu were great. Christine

  6. Fab fun family photos of Christine's family, Lisa! Really lovely :)
