Those two smiley folk above are Kate and Justin. Husband and wife, parents to gorgeous Beatrice who was still safely snuggled in her mummy’s tummy here, and the dynamic duo team behind the amazing lifestyle brand, Dusty Boy Designs. For Dee and I, there aren’t too many things we enjoy more than heading to Wexford for the day and hanging out with Kate and Justin. I’ve known Kate for a good few years as she’s also one of Ireland’s top Makeup Artists so I see her at weddings often (not not often enough for my liking) and when Dee used to join me to some weddings a few years ago her, herself and Kate got on like a house on fire and a true friendship was born. Justin is the man I want to be. Throw’s his hand to pretty much anything and does it all barefoot for the most part. There has been many a meal at each other’s homes with long chats that all too easily drift into the next day. You know those nights that you never want to end. Those.
It was during one of those nights that Kate and Justin asked if I’d help them with a little project – to take the images for their new Dusty Boy Design website. How could I refuse? Especially when I knew that what they wanted was for me to document what is essentially a day in the life for them and documenting the lives of others, as well as my own family is my favourite thing.
So take a little step into their work life and their home life – and what a beautiful home life that is. When you’re finished, take a little trip over to their amazing website and pick yourself up something nice, or even better, gift your loved one. They’ll thank you for it.
