Leith Hall in Aberdeenshire is one of my favourite places to take photos! It’s no wonder my clients often request to meet there too. The scenery is breath-taking and the atmosphere is so tranquil. What better spot for an outdoor family photography session!
I had the very great pleasure of photographing the McKay family (of McKay Window Cleaning – click here to check out their Facebook page, I highly recommend them!)
I met the family in the late afternoon, when the light outside is at its most beautiful. Their little boy was a tornado of energy and a real free spirit – which I totally love to photograph. Kids being kids is my favourite so I reassured the family not to worry or try to rein him in, I know exactly how to get the shots I’m after. Plus, I needed the exercise!
Their little girl was at that age where she was so curious about everything. You could see her taking it all in! She felt most at home in mama’s arms and was full of smiles for her, but Daddy brought out her adventurous side when he threw her playfully up in the air and caught her.
This family were a real joy. The love they have for one another shines so bright and I was honoured that they asked me to capture these beautiful family memories for them.
Here are a few of my favourites from the session.
