Family photo shoot- Lauder, Scotland

 A few years ago I made beautiful mum, Kirsty's wedding dress. We had so much fun makiner that dress (http://www.stephnie-anne.com/#/bridal-full-tulle-skirt-with-lace-bodice/) that we inevitably became friends. I was delighted when Kirsty asked if I would take some photos of her, Paul and there gorgeous girls. 

On an very dark, stormy December afternoon I popped down to Lauger...worrying about the lack of natural light. There wasn't much! If any! And to add insult to injury my camera was acting up. I wanted them to have some photos to use as Christmas presents and for that reason did not want to reschedule the photo shoot.

Photography is a very personal thing. We all like different things. But these images turned out to be some of my favorite images.I fell in love head over heals in love with little Ava (I am already planning another trip to capture her and her fab big sister). 

I love the grainy, dark photos. To me they are so atmospheric. There are quite a few here, but I find it impossible to resist any of Ava's expressions
