Katie travelled to Adare Manor with her parents to celebrate her graduation and as she is about to turn 21, her mother Deisy, who heads up a television network in Miami, commissioned me to do a shoot.
She is your typical 21 year old full of hopes for her future and she plans to return from Miami to Ireland very soon as part of her travels.
Katie had a shoot done when she was 15 in New York and they were continuing on with the next stage of her life. I totally admire our US friends for understanding how important it is to record events through photography.
The shoot was a challenging one, in that I wanted to show Katie as I saw her and as she became more confident to add an element of fashion to it, while creating images that would not date and that her family could relate to when they looked back at images of their only child.
