What to expect:
Although we have use of our small studio, I try to shoot as often as possible outside using natural light and local environments. It would be a shame not to take advantage of the wonderful countryside all around Lanark for your family photography session - not only does the countryside provide a fantastic backdrop, but it's often more fun and interesting than being stuck in a studio! And as people tend to be more relaxed in surroundings that they are comfortable with, we're not limited to shooting in the local area - we can meet at your favourite beach, forest walk, or at a city park.
I want to offer you a truly enjoyable and memorable photo experience, so before the session takes place we will chat to ensure that I capture the look and feel that you want. We can talk about location, what looks good with regard to clothes, or any props that you may want to bring (like a favourite children's toy or musical instrument) - the aim is to make your photo session as informal and as much fun as possible! Precious moments with our children and partners are the memories that we cherish the most, they stay with us forever. What better way is there to preserve these fleeting moments than to own a piece of wall art that perfectly captures a particular moment in time while looking fantastic in your home long into the future?
