It’s Sunday morning and the sun is shining! Did I mention this is Scotland? Such a beautiful day for a family photo session on the beach.
I meet the family in the car park and the girls come bouncing over, excited for the day ahead. Such sweet girls – they immediately show me all the fun things they’ve packed for their family day. I can’t wait to spend time with them all.
The morning is packed with fun! We chase the waves, dig for rocks to paint, do cartwheels (the girls do – not me!), spin like ballerinas, and laugh as Daddy chases the football across the beach.
This family are so full of love. Mum and Dad smile and laugh the whole time. The kids run freely across the beach that we practically have to ourselves. Mum has asked me to specifically capture photos of her children having fun. No problem at all!
She also wants to make sure we capture photos with her beautiful ring in them. It’s heartbreaking to say, but this family recently lost a beautiful baby girl – Jessica. She should have been there too, enjoying this amazing family day. I believe she was. Jessica was definitely there in this family’s heart. The youngest daughter smiles as she tells me all about “Mummy’s special ring for Jessica”. She thinks about her sister with such love.
You can see clearly that these parents hold their babies that bit tighter now, savouring every single precious moment with them.
Thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your special family day. I have loved every minute. Here are a few of my favourite photos from the day. I can’t wait to show you the rest.
