Lovely Family Storrie

Soooo, I just realised I didn’t finish my blog about this shoot. It’s from last year and is a very special one for me. My cousin Dawn has always been a big part of our lives and when she asked me to take photos for them I was really excited to catch up with this part of our family. My mum is one of 6 so as you’d imagine, we’re a big extended family and we don’t spend enough time together these days.

So off to the Gleniffer Braes we went last autumn. An afternoon of love, laughter, tree-climbing and gymnastics. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing the moment for them all. Here are some of my favourite shots:

A Family Portrait

It’s been a long, long time since I blogged. So much has happened this year and I’ve let blogging fall by the wayside. But after this shoot in Glasgow’s Pollok Park, I had to share my favourite shots with you.

I worked with Lynn many moons ago in Glasgow Science Centre and we reconnected through her business Paws On Pet Services and her brilliant blog: Glasgow With Kids. Sometimes Facebook has it’s upsides.

So we got together last month and I finally had the chance to meet Lynn’s daughter, the inspiration for her blog and her husband David. Lynn is pretty great with a camera herself so it didn’t take too long for everyone to feel at ease.

We lucked out with the weather for the shoot and caught the tail end of those delightful few weeks in June when the sun was shining. A walk through the park provided a lovely backdrop for this gorgeous, happy family!White Family Sneak Peek

I had such a lovely morning with these guys. My job is pretty awesome! xx




Baby Toto Arrived!x

A few months ago I had the privilege of taking photos for my friend and her family of three as they announced another was on the way.  I was delighted to be asked to take photos of new arrival Baby Toto when he was just a few days old. He’s actually called Thomas but his big brother has renamed him and I think it’s going to last!  It was another afternoon of laughter, cuddles, kisses and smiles – plus a cuppa or two.

As always, Christopher charmed the camera and I focused on capturing natural relaxed moments of a family who are all smitten with their newest addition.  And who wouldn’t be?  He’s adorable!  Here’s to many more happy family photographs! x

Newborn Photography: The Dinwoodie Family

2015-05-09-025-Mei-Photography-Dinwoodie-Newborn - Copy (2)
At the start of May I had the incredible privilege of taking some lifestyle portraits for adorable newborn Callum and his lovely parents, Lynsey & Iain.  Since it was my first official newborn session, I was a little nervous but I needn’t have worried.  I could not have been luckier. Callum was a wee star and slept peacefully through the majority of the day before waking a little towards the end for some beautiful shots to camera.  It became clear early on in that he gets his talent in front of the lens from his parents.  Both were great, adding in ideas that they had in mind, finding gorgeous poses naturally and following direction easily. The light was great and the colours everyone dressed in just worked beautifully. Here are some of my favourite shots… x

A Family Tree

Original Family Tree CropI’ve loved this photo for as long as I can remember.  It lived in a box of photos and memories until I framed it one day.  It currently sits proudly on display in my parent’s house and makes me smile every time I see it.

I’m the one at the top of the tree on my Dad’s shoulders, not paying any attention to the camera.  My sister sits in my Mum’s arms with a seemingly innate ability to work the lens at a very young age.  I’m told my Uncle Alan is the photographer.

I love everything about it.  The tones, the graininess, the pose and of course, the people.  It’s my favourite family photo.

When my sister started a family of her own, this photo naturally came to mind and I was delighted to have the opportunity to recreate it during a wee photo shoot I did for them earlier this year.  This time my cheeky niece took my place at the top of the tree and my new nephew is pride of place at in my sister’s arms.

It’s a more modern take thanks to our lovely Scottish weather preventing us from getting outside that day but I love how it turned out.  More importantly, so did my sister.
