Location scouting in Bearsden

I am always on the lookout for new and beautiful locations to take my families to for their photoshoots.

I love places where the kids can have fun whilst their parents enjoy the view and watch their little ones doing what kids do best, running free! Having driven past this spot six times a week for years, I have always wanted to explore it and when we got the opportunity to check it out with my kids and my camera, it was exactly what I was hoping for.

I can’t wait to visit it again.

Can we talk about body confidence?

When I speak to mums, the biggest reason I hear being used for putting off a much wanted photo shoot is the worry of how they will look in the photos. Many mums who come for a family shoot joke in the first few minutes about me “photoshopping out squidgy bits” or sometimes even saying they don’t want to be in the photos at all, I’m just to focus on the kids.

The most important thing though, is why we want family photos in the first place. That’s the big point, they are photos of your family, exactly as it is, right now, in this moment. They may be babies and toddlers, preschoolers and eight year olds, they may be teenagers or fully grown adults, but those children are your children and they want you in the pictures with them.

Dance photography | Glasgow

Performers put in so much time and dedication to the development of their skills and preparing for performances.

Beautiful costumes, graceful moves, and strength of mind and body are all on the go at once. With all that goes into this by the performers themselves and those supporting them, it can be very special to capture this dedication with a specialised photoshoot.

Existing in photos with your children this Mother's Day

Mother's day is an emotional and often sensitive day for so many people, for so many different reasons. 

Seeing joy, love, excitement, shyness and toddler tantrums in a photo fills me with a sense of reality, of life and of living. I love the view point that an unposed image gives us as the viewer. The way that documentary photography can draw you in and make you feel like you are in that moment with the subjects of the photo is so powerful. It is real and it is honest and that is what I love most, how perfectly imperfect life is. It is so important to exist in photos with our children. Do we want to look back when these years have passed us by and realise there are no photos because we were waiting for the perfect moment? There is no moment more perfect than right now to be in photos with your family. I am so thankful to my mum for taking so many photos as we grew up, with family members, on our own, with her an my dad. Photos decorated our house and now they decorate my home too.

What photos would you choose to be in this Mother’s Day?
