“Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life.” – Albert Einstein
As well as lots of yummy babies I have had the honour of capturing lots of family images recently too. These types of sessions mean so much to me because I know there is usually a reason for them and as such, they create a beautiful memory for the family in them.
The Grow with Me One
I love doing Grow With Me sessions as I get to see how cute bambinos grow and develop over their first year. Miss Cora came in for her 2nd session and I just had to include her big brothers in the pictures.
I love how much they dote on her. She even has a cool nickname ‘Baby C’. That’s what being in a family is all about. This little lady is always going to have her big bros looking out for her.
The Turning One One (!)
Little Miss Erin was about to turn one and mum wanted to celebrate with a family portrait.
Such a cute family. One day, when she is much older. Erin will look at these pictures and get all the warm and fuzzies. Just like her mum and dad will when she is in her difficult teenage years and they remember what a precious little dot she was!
The We Are So Proud Of Him One
This family have all their kid’s graduation pictures in frames proudly displayed. Just because their youngest son’s graduation was cancelled due to C-19 they still wanted to mark his moment. The gown was still hired and I did my best to recreate the graduation images his sisters had taken.
I love that this will be hung in pride of place in the family home. Bonus points that he graduated from the Univerity all the best people graduate from, Stirling 😉
The Baby Is Flying The Nest One
This was a very personal session for me. I gifted a Family Photoshoot at my local virtual Christmas Fair last year. It was a prize draw with all the proceeds going to local family charities. I used a random number spinner to generate the winners to keep things all above board but I was delighted when my good friends won!
I’ve been wanting to shoot this family for ages. Dad is an over 6-foot mountain of a man and Mum is so tiny and petite. How she managed to give birth to twin boys and then another son is beyond me! I mean I’m guessing they didn’t appear as big as they are today but even still!!!
It was a poignant moment for them as well as their youngest son was flying the nest off to training college.
We had a blast in the studio and I think that comes across in the images. To me, if grown-ass boys can still hug their parents and come along to a session like this, then they have been bought up right!
I love how mum’s smile stretches from ear to ear as she is getting loved on by her sons. Images like this are important to me. Showing the mum at the heart of the family as all too often she is behind the camera capturing the images.
I smile because you’re my brother. I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it.
