Family Reunion

April 19th, 2013 admin Blog No comments

I had a call recently from a woman who was looking for a photographer for a very special occasion.  She explained that it was the first time in years that all of her family would be together, and the first time the grandchildren would meet.  She was keen to have some photos to mark this special event, with one large family shot alongside some more relaxed images of the kids playing and having fun.  She said she liked my style of photography, so asked if I could arrange a session at short notice, which of course I agreed to immediately.

We still had quite a lot of snow around, so I opted to go to the grounds of Cally Palace in Gatehouse Of Fleet where the snow should be relatively untouched in comparison to most areas.  It was also a good in between meeting place for the family, who travelled from Newton Stewart for the shoot.  Once they arrived, we got stuck in and started with the more formal groups, then we just let the kids play and photographed them. They were lovely children who had so much fun, and a couple of them had never seen snow before, so for them it was an extra special treat. Giles was assisting me during this shoot, which was really helpful with it being a larger group than usual, so the two of us just set to work and had fun.

My client has just seen the photos and is really pleased, saying she will have difficulty choosing as there are ‘ many fab pictures’. I hope I’ve helped to mark the memory of this very special weekend, so she can look back on it happily in years to come.
