Finnell & MacMillan’s Barrhead Salon recently had a makeover and the guys asked me to come in and photograph both the salon and the team at work. The salon looks amazing inside and is like a tardis, it just goes on and on!
I must admit it was great fun to photograph the team, as everybody just loves a photographer snapping away when they’re hard at work One thing I always have noticed when photographing for Finnell & MacMillan is how great the atmosphere is. The clients are always laughing and chatting away and look totally relaxed and enjoying themselves. This to me shows how everybody at Finnell & MacMillan loves their work and place customer service paramount. I really would urge people to try them out as the service and pricing is top notch. If I had hair this would be the salon I would use
Here are a few shots.
What a pleasure it was to photograph this wedding. I’m always really humbled at how couples and their families make us feel so welcome during their big day. George and Jeanette were no different and they couldn’t have done enough for us on the day. Thank you both
The ceremony was held in the most impressive church I’ve been in to date, Old Govan Parish Church. You really have to step inside to appreciate how stunning it is. Just to spice things up a little , George’s mum forgot to bring the rings to the church. Luckily it was only a 10 minute journey to retrieve them.
After the ceremony it was then on to Pollokshields Burgh Hall which again is a lovely location. It had been sunny all day but the second we stepped outside to grab a few portraits it started to snow, no joke. Bright sunshine, snow, hail and then bright sun again, all within the space of ten minutes, only in Scotland
Congratulations George & Jeanette, your day was just perfect
I don’t think I’ve had a closer shoot location than this one, around 20 feet. The subjects were my next door neighbour’s children Poppy, Lilly and little Violet. I’ve watched the three of them grow up since we arrived here a good few years back so I had a good advantage. Usually with children or subjects I haven’t met before it can take a little while until they fully relax in front of the camera. As the three girls have heard my nonsense about a thousand times over I knew they would just be themselves.
We started off in the house for some shots and almost destroyed the laundry basket in the process (sorry Lorna), then it was outside for some more natural relaxed shots where the three just ran around having fun. That way I believe you get to photograph children’s true personalities.
To finish we headed off to a nearby field to let them run off even more steam, although I was quite content to lay on the grass and watch.
Here are a few shots from the day
This shoot was a surprise present for dad, although I’d be amazed if this was kept a secret until Father’s day If you recognise the 3 faces in this blog post then sssshhhhhhh please
I’ve not seen mum Nicola for years and it was great to catch up again, especially to meet her three children. Time really does fly. You should be very proud Nicola, you have three fantastic children
The shoot itself was great. Grace and Niamh were lots of fun to photograph and baby Lewis was totally chilled out with lots of smiles.

This is the second time I have photographed this fab family. About a year ago the twins Hollie and Ella were quite a bit different from this shoot. Check out the difference HERE. Even little Callum is no longer little.
Fast forward a year and the twins are now quite a bit more mobile which kept me on my toes. Luckily I had mum and dad to help chasing them around. As like last time I can’t tell Hollie and Ella apart. Very luckily for me Holly had a tiny little scratch on her cheek which was the only way I could them apart when editing. I had to give each twin a separate colour in Lightroom after the scratch had been taken out otherwise I would have been clueless once more
