Mothers day fundraiser for Heidi - Tara Donoghue Photography

This is an event very close to my heart and I appreciate those of you taking the time to read this post.

We photographed Sinead and Steve’s wedding back in 2015 in Cork and like many of you hopefully know, we love to stay in touch with our couples and catch up for coffee’s when they can and hear about their growing families.

Our youngest Dáithí was born in 2017, Sinead and Steve had their first baby in 2017 and we were so excited for them and were messaging back and forth about the pregnancies, sleepless nights etc. Little did we, or Sinead and Steve know at the time, that Heidi would face many difficulties. Heidi is partially blind and hard of hearing; she also has Cerebral Palsy and therefore needs a lot of physical and emotional support. Seeing their beautiful little girl in and out of hospital was heart-breaking for us and we wanted to find a way to help. I had noticed that Heidi needs a lot of specialist equipment to help her sit up or have a bath, or even go out to the park she needs a specially adapted pushchair. Any parents reading this know that having a child is expensive but these additional costs can be crippling!

With that in mind we decided that we needed to do something to help and have organised an event on Mother’s Day at the Brehon Hotel in Killarney.

The afternoon will include an amazing 3 course lunch with entertainment for a super reasonable fee of €45 per person with all the proceeds going direct to help Heidi.

We also have the amazing Grace Foley who will perform for us and we have lots of other surprises for the afternoon in store.

We will also be offering all attendees a complimentary family/couple or individual portrait. This alone would normally cost much more than €45 euros so the value for money is going to be huge!

So if any of you are able to attend you can buy tickets here…
