This last year has been very hectic for us as we have moved from Glasgow to St Andrews. Although we have tried to fit in all our regular clients, some have had to miss out but hopefully, now that we are settled, we will get around to everyone in 2013. In the meantime here is […]

Now is the time to get the camera out and get the children into the park. The leaves have turned to their wonderful Autumn colours and will soon be turning brown. Don’t miss this short time frame, get out and get snapping. You will be delighted with the results. Here is a slideshow of a […]

Another Nine Years of Growing!

No Comments | Read more ›

A couple of posts ago I did one of our annual client’s pics over nine years, to show how photographs tell the story of your children growing up. Amanda is the daughter of one of our American clients that we do annually and I have also being taking their photos for nine years, so I […]

How do you view your photos?

It seems that almost everyone is taking photos now. My grand-daughter took a surprisingly successful picture of me yesterday with her Mum’s iPhone (maybe not technically perfect but not bad for a three year old!). Not only has it become easier to take pics, there are now so many different ways to view your snaps. […]

Simplifying your photo

Katie, who is sixteen, has sent in this tender photograph of her cousin, Max. It is a lovely capture of a slightly truculent four year old, obviously in a domestic setting with lots and lots of colour. Katie likes Max’s cute expression but thinks he gets a bit lost in the distracting background. Personally it […]

Photos, the passing of time and Dear Photographer

While looking at Facebook yesterday I noticed that one of my friends had become a Fan of the Dear Photographer Page. I clicked on it out of curiosity and was surprised to see how effective a simple idea could be. The site consists of old photos that people hold out in front of them to […]

The June competition winner is… Zoe

No Comments | Read more ›

Well that has to be the closest competition yet. From quite early on Coco had a commanding lead but Zoe leapt past her a few days ago and that spurred them both on. From then on they were leapfrogging over each other with never more than a handful of votes in it. This continued right […]
