Christmas Family Portrait Session
Well it's nearly Christmas, so I was thrilled to be invited along to take family portraits of a lovely Glasgow family recently. What a better excuse to break out the Santa hats? Especially when one of them is musical.
Another reason for the session was the addition to the family of the gorgeous little Jessica, who is 6 months old. Jessica was full of smiles and was most definitely ready for her addition to their family photography album.
Family portraits are something traditionally to have taken around Christmas - they make great presents for relatives. Jessica and big sister Susie had their matching Christmas jumpers on specially for the occasion.
Mummy and Daddy also wanted a few pictures of them alone with Jessica. These will sit next to the ones they had taken with big sister Susie, at around the same age. Having photos taken is a great way of keeping childhood memories alive.
Jessica has a lot of fun playing with both Mum and Dad. However when you take photos you can often pick up on the subtle differences in the relationship with each parent. Each bond is special and as individual as a snowflake. Jessica has a lot of exciting fun with Dad and Mummy is cuddly and just plain hilarious!
Big sister Susie is a happy little girl who is a bundle of joyful energy. What better way to engage her in the session than break out some toys?
Mum broke out the flokati rug (sheepskin rug to you and I). This was also used in a session with Susie when she was a baby. This was the perfect backdrop to show off that final special family bond - the bond between sisters. Already firm playmates by the looks of things this is a relationship that will continue to evolve as both girls grow and mature, hopefully into firm friends too.
I am a Glasgow family photographer, who also works in Edinburgh. I am a mobile photographer - so I come to you to take the photos, or we can meet in the venue of your choice. Christmas is the perfect time to book a session for family pictures, but so is every other time of the year! Babies and children of all ages are photogenic and capturing memories is never out of style. To find out more see further pages on my website: www.katecurryphotography.co.uk.
