Why I Love This Shot – A Moment with Mum

Second in my new blog series “Why I Love this Shot” is a photo I refer to as “A Moment with Mum”.  It’s from a shoot earlier this year that was won on Facebook as a Christmas competition on Glasgow With Kids.

As luck would have it, the winners were friends with some of my friends and some of my other clients. I was really excited to meet them and the competition was perfect timing, they were expecting the arrival of their newest addition in just a few weeks.

The shoot itself went really well and we had lots of fun. My job is always so much easier when the family are naturals in front of the camera! The light for the day was also just beautiful and let’s face it, there’s not a photographer out there who isn’t inspired by light.

But the main reason I love this shot is because of the connection between mother and daughter. It’s a precious moment together that feels special and here it is, captured to treasure forever.

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

Take Another Shot

Sometimes it’s worth remembering that in most cases, we can always take another shot…  my work and style is evolving and I’ve been enjoying looking back at the shoots I’ve been privileged to shoot this year (so far!).  I’ve got many more to edit and share with you… you’ll see more in my end of year review but for now… here are a just a few of my favourite moments. xTake Another Shot Collage WR

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
