Vintage Styled Family Garden Photoshoot, Lenzie

On a sunny day earlier this year I was asked to take family portraits outside, of a vintage-styled lovely lady and her children. Make-up and hair was provided by the extremely talented Fiona Poliri - who employed my services as part of a project to take photos of vintage-styled breastfeeding mothers. Although not sharing the breastfeeding photos here I am sharing other photos that were taken before and after the breastfeeding session.

It couldn't have been a better day with excellent weather outside. However it still wasn't up to the record highs seen in Glasgow around the end of June onwards. Due to the harsh sunlight the photos were taken under the protection of a large garden umbrella. This also meant that the models' eyes were protected from squinting whilst taking photos.

I like to focus in on the details of a baby when I do a photo shoot. Those tiny feet will soon get big and it's nice to have a good photo to help keep the memory of when they were small.

It was definitely one of those days when I felt like I have the best job ever - getting to be outside in the sunshine taking photos of a beautiful mother and her cutie-pie daughter.

This beautiful little girl had big brown eyes and was quick to laugh, making her extremely photogenic.

More details - of feet being stood on - but only with the help of Mum still. Also a hand being held by Mum as she takes one of those first stances. Won't be too long before she's starting to walk and then it will be precious to have these photographic memories of when she couldn’t.

Just look at those eyes.....

And what had those eyes been looking at? They were looking at her super-cool big sister who was wearing her batman t-shirt and playing on a 'Kiss' push-along bike. I'm sure that this little one has a ready-made role model to aspire to when she grows up. Her sister’s just so cool.
