Glasgow Family Photo Shoot
I was asked to take family photographs of this very lovely lady and her young daughter as part of a breastfeeding photography project. The project is run by Fiona Poliri who also provides vintage hair and make-up for the photos. This is part of a larger project which Fiona is running to help promote breastfeeding and the support available to ladies who breastfeed. Fiona is running an event in Glasgow in September 2018 featuring some of these photos (Boobstock!). There will also be top speakers and a fashion show. Here I am sharing some of the non-breastfeeding photos.
I just loved the brightly coloured clothing this little fellow was dressed in. That and her big brown eyes. Such a cutie. My Mum is Dutch and there is a tradition of dressing children in very bright colours, which I love. I still have that tendency to wear bright colours today. I have a pair of orange trousers, which in particular always get comments from more conservative colour-wearing Brits.
Everyone has their own parenting style. This lovely lady was very tender and kept lavishing her wee one with soothing and loving words. The baby in turn was an extremely friendly, happy wee sole who was quick to laugh and to look at me when taking photos.
In addition to that, it's always a treat when as a photographer you get a Mummy with such film-star looks. A very glamourous lady indeed!
I always like to get photos of the details of children too. They grow so fast that soon these tiny feet will be much bigger and memories fade. I liked the way they were contentedly curled around his Mummy.
Towards the end of the shoot the pair were joined by Dad, who also joined in with having some photos taken.
Apparently Dad had just trimmed his beard. This was a great source of interest for the wee one, leading to the amusing photo above.
I am a Glasgow-based family photographer who comes to you to take the photos. This allows you to show off home and hearth, or I can provide backdrops if you prefer. I shoot maternity, baby and family photography sessions, as well as performance photography and food. If you are interested in finding out more about booking a session please either email me (email@example.com) or contact me through this website.
