Family Portrait Photography – Livia & Alex

I love family portrait photography sessions – especially when it means I get to revisit clients! Just over two years ago I did a portrait session with Alex at her home in Rhu, Argyll. I captured some fabulous pictures of this gorgeous girl. She really enjoyed being a model so her big smile was definitely in evidence! I recently went back to catch up with her again and this time her little sister Livia was there too. My goal was to capture more of those beautiful smiles and they did not let me down!

Alex has grown up so much from my last visit – but she still has the same gorgeous big eyes. She also still wanted her favourite teddy to be in the pictures with her!

This is especially true for children. At home it is possible to take a little more time and allow everyone to get used to my camera. This normally means better photographs!

Livia initially seemed a little bit wary – however, this did not last very long.

Although we has some serious expressions from Alex, we got lots of laughs too.

Livia is a wee bundle of energy and likes to be doing something all the time. When I was shooting she went from jumping with Paddington, to playing with her sister and favourite toys, to singing Baby Shark! Family Portrait image of young girl sticking her tonight out while sitting with familyyoung girl jumping with her teddy bear during a family portrait session
