One of the real pleasures of my job is to meet lovely new families and this one was no exception! Karen, Gareth and Finlay got in touch and asked for some family portraits to be taken around the time of their handsome little boys’ first birthday. It was such a pleasure to meet them. I could listen to their Northern Irish accents all day. All 3 of them arrived with huge smiles and full of enthusiasm for their shoot, even on a cold December day!

Many people I speak to are concerned about having their photo-shoots during the winter time. The winter can be a fabulous time to plan your shoot. The sun is low in the sky which makes for very flattering and soft light. You can also dress up your outfits with funky scarves, chunky knits and woolly hats (see photo below!). Hopefully the Reid family will show you in the following images that winter shoots do not need to be dull and drab!

Karen and Gareth’s outfits were perfectly chosen with a lovely pop of colour, which was a great choice for a photo-shoot during the winter time.

Here are a few of my favourite images which I hope you will enjoy too!
