Take the ‘thinking’ out of Christmas but keep the ‘thoughtfulness’ intact with a gift this year from Bluebell
Studios.

This most wonderful time of the year finds us surrounded by those we love best. But in a sea of ‘selfies’ and ‘insta’ images, how many stand out shots have we actually framed and mounted?

Why not have those you cherish on your walls, or framed on your mantle, all year round with a professional studio portrait, designed and delivered by Wexford based Paula Malone Carty.Microsoft Word - Document2

From ‘cutsie’ kids to classic ‘clan’ canvasses, Paula’s artistic eye behind the lens can guarantee a picture that w_MG_9996 LRill paint a thousand loving memories.

And this is the gift that keeps on giving, as Bluebell Studios are offering a Christmas ‘bonus’ to Santa’s little helpers this year. Purchase a €100 studio portrait gift voucher and see it magically increase to €150. Those who buy a €150 voucher will receive one worth €225. Thats a 50% increase on all your studio gift vouchers absolutley free!

Buying the gift of a voucher also means that they can be redeemed later in the year, long after the January diet has knocked the ‘stuffing’ out of us all and we’re ready to be photographed looking our very best!

And what about those who have received their first DSLR digital camera this year? An exciting gift from Santa indeed, but a certain amount of “know how” is needed to get the best use from this expensive piece of kit.

Once again the helpful elves at Bluebell Studio race to the rescue with vouchers available for both beginners and intermediate digital photography courses.

Under Paula’s expert tuition, it won’t be long before the new camera owner is very skilled and capable behind the viewfinder.

For intensive tutelage private individual lessons are also available.

Other gift ideas from Bluebell Studios include ‘newborn portrait vouchers’ for the expectant parent perhaps; ‘lifestyle portraits’, ‘head shot shoots’ for the job-hunter who needs to professionally prep their CV; prints of Paula’s own landscape work; handmade Wexford Christmas cards and a range of decorative frames.

Oh come all ye faithful friends and customers of Bluebell Studios and see what pretty pictures we can create together.

Merry Christmas everyone, and all of us here at Bluebell Studios wish you a peaceful, prosperous, and picture-filled 2016.

With rain being Ireland’s default weather pattern, wedding couple Grace and Karl embraced the elements as well as each other on their happy day.

Isn’t this iconic?

No precipitation could dampen the ardour of this perfect pairing, when they walked down the aisle of the picturesque Star of the Sea Church, overlooking the panoramic, if windswept, coastal view of Duncannon, Co. Wexford.

Pre-wedding day plans for photography on the beach and Dunbrody Abbey were cancelled by the clouds, but gracious Grace, and cool, calm Karl took the sky bursts in their stride, and BlueBell Studio easily caught the warmth and sunniness of their dispositions on the day.

This is something a downpour could never diminish.

Throughout the day we captured amazing Grace – gentle, elegant and refined – as she readied herself for this most romantic of days.

Karl – kind, clement and good-natured – embraced the occasion as a man feeling honoured, elated.

As a couple, they radiated love.

Family and friends embraced the happiness of the occasion, and the stunning backdrop of Faithlegg, where the reception was held, added to the tangible romance of the day.

A delightful couple like Karl and Grace make wedding photography such a joyous pursuit, and BlueBell Studio wish them both a world of happiness in their future lives together.

Nothing can rain on that parade.

Included in your photo shoot is our online gallery making it easier for you to decide on your images in the comfort of your own home. The packages included retouched professionally printed & framed prints ready for you to display.

We can also visit you at your house or at a location of your choice.

Christmas is drawing close, a time for family, friends and loved ones. Here at BlueBell studio we can offer you the perfect gift..The gift of a portrait. A portrait captures the essence of a person and locks that precious moment in time away to view again and again, or to send to family & friends. Often the moment is very special and short lasting, the glow of an expectant mum, the innocence of a young baby or the joy of a rare family get together.

Here at Bluebell Studio, we can offer you a stylish, lasting record of that special time. Your session can be as formal or as informal as you like, we can discuss any ideas or questions you have regarding clothing, props etc. Bluebell Studio is a family friendly environment and having your portrait captured is a fun, relaxed and enjoyable experience.

We are delighted here at the studio  to reintroduce our Christmas Special Offers.

Its that time of year again where our children may have their First Communion or Confirmation approaching soon.

This is our fourth year in a row with a communion or confirmation in the family including one year when we had both so it can be a fairly expensive time

especially when you have to dress all the rest of the family too.  Its a very special time in a child’s life though particularly since they spend many months preparing for this special day…spiritually on the inside and of course what to wear on the day. These are key moments in their lives and its also a great opportunity to have the family portraits taken. Everyone is dressed up and in good spirits.

Here at the studio we have many packages to suit all types of budgets and timelines. From a mini portrait session to a deluxe portrait session. These packages include the sitting and prints and some include framing also. You can also be accommodated in the studio on a separate day to your event if it suits you better.

Of course outdoor portrait sessions can work really well too providing its not raining. These are a personal favourite of mine.

Afterwards there are many choices in ways to display your imagery and we can advise you here in the studio. Fine art images can be displayed using bespoke framing, canvases and acrylics. What better way to preserve those special memories.
