It’s always a good laugh to photograph siblings that are roughly the same age. At the start of the shoot they are always really nice to each other and on their best behaviour and that’s when I get my ‘safety’ shots. As the shoot progresses however, it’s then that you get to see the real relationship between the kids, which always involves fun and messing about, just the way kids should be. Meet Scott and Stuart, two great little boys who just love being boys, I should know seeing as I have three myself.
The boys just loved to mess around and have fun generally so I trailed around after them taking the odd shot or two. I even managed to get mum and dad in on the act by grabbing a family shot at the end.
Thanks very much for your hospitality Donald and Lesley, and apologies again Donald for placing you right in front of your neighbours for the family shot, of course you know I never meant that……
Here are a few of my favourites.
This shoot was organised by daughter Jennifer as a present for her dad Digby who was over visiting from South Africa. As well as Jennifer, Digby’s two other daughters were present too.
My task was to capture some semi formal shots of the family and some informal shots of the kids as well. To try to show what Digby is missing back in South Africa we just had to showcase the good old Scottish weather. You can see how it was in the last shot
Here are my favourites from the shoot.
First off, congratulations to Laura on graduating from Aberdeen University. It’s a great achievement and I know her whole family are very proud indeed
To remember the event, and rather than have the usual rushed pictures (I know, I had the same ones done many moons ago) Laura wanted some more relaxed shots taken with her family. To start off we used the studio for some semi formal shots with the robes on. Even Laura’s brother Dylan got in on the act then it was outside to finish things off, after we had ditched the robes of course.
Many thanks to mum,dad, Dylan and Laura for making the shoot so enjoyable.

Once more it was back to sunny Kilsyth for a shoot with three little girls. Carla, Farren and Layla were the subjects and they did not disappoint when plopped in front of the camera. Even though the weather was really warm the girls ran about, I really don’t know where kids get their energy from
After some shots at gran and grandpa’s inside and out the back we headed off to a quiet spot in Colzium Park to finish things off. We found a quiet path near to the duck pond so this is where the girls ran around for a while and I just captured them having fun.
Many thanks to Ruth and Helen and gran and grandpa for all the hospitality and help, and numerous glasses of water
Here are a few shots.
This was another shoot in Irvine, with mum and daughter Chyian and Davee. As always I started off inside so that Davee could get used to me and the camera, although there were no worries on that front. Right from the off both mum and daughter were totally at ease which makes for nice relaxed photographs.
After we had the camera warmed up a bit we then headed off to a nearby beach where the weather was fantastic. The sun was blazing down so we took full advantage and went for a stroll, taking the odd picture or two. Then we headed to the excellent Eglington Park again to finish off the shoot. By this time I was looking for blissful shade and found a few trees to cool me down a bit.
Thanks to Chyian and Davee, your hospitality was superb
Here are a couple of shots.
