Christmas Mini Sessions with Monka Photography, Athy

Primary school graduation

In the blink of an eye, Adam graduated primary school. I still can’t believe how fast it went. It seems like yesterday we brought him there for the first time and tonight was his graduation. I hope he’ll be very happy in the secondary school. ♥

Photographing toddlers

Toddlers are full of energy and usually don’t want to stay still for photographs. But today I met the best little model. Dylan was happy to pose with his new baby sister and on his own. He gave me lots of gorgeous smiles. ♥

Early delivery

The best time for a newborn photoshoot is within the first two weeks after the labour and it doesn’t change with an early delivery.

In case your baby arrives much earlier then the due date, the best time for newborn photos is between 6-14 days after returning home from the hospital.

First Holy Communion Day

This morning I had the pleasure to welcome beautiful Annie back in my little studio and take photos on her First Holy Communion Day.

She looked absolutely stunning, posed like a professional model and gave me lots of beautiful smiles.

Boys’ photoshoot with puppy

Today I invited my sons for a quick boys’ photoshoot in the studio before the puppy gets too big to be held in their arms.

Oh, it was sooo funny as the puppy only wanted to explore and sniff everything instead of sitting with them in one place. At the end we managed to get few fab photos.

Oh, puppy in the studio is not easy to managed so we went outside and took some beautiful photos of my little boy in the blue flowers.

Puppy loved the flowers and 15 minutes later they were all over the garden. I believe that’s the end of my colourful back garden.

New fur baby

This afternoon we welcomed a new fur baby. After over a year without a doggy in our life we’ve got a new addition to our family. Let’s the fun begin. ♥

Communion Day

Gorgeous Isabel looked like a little princess on her Communion Day. She came for photos after the mass and posed like a Pro!

I captured many beautiful photos including traditional formal poses and also some playful shots.

Thank You

I am very grateful to all parents who let me show photographs that I captured during their session. Thanks to that I can show my work and welcome new customers in my little studio. ♥
