Glasgow Vintage Photo Shoot with Mother and Child

I was lucky to be hired to take some family portraits outside for a Glasgow project to help promote breastfeeding and the support networks available. The project is being put together by vintage make-up and hair artist, Fiona Poliri. Although not sharing the breastfeeding photos here, I am sharing some of the other photos taken of one of the families I met during the project.

These photos are of Gayle who brought along her lovely daughter Charlotte to be photographed.

When I take photos I like to focus in on the details of what I'm looking at and I like taking pictures of a child's hands and feet - which will all too soon not be baby-sized any longer.

As you can see Gayle's beautiful hummingbird dress proved an amazing vibrant background for the close-up pictures. Charlotte, her daughter, was very photogenic and was also dressed in lovely bright colours and a funky pattern that photographed very well.

It was nice to be able to capture a really lovely summer's day in the garden, with a tea set that provided just an extra vintage touch to the shoot.
