Favourite Image - December 2018 | Baby Photographer Glasgow

Sometimes, I take an image that really makes me feel something, for some reason or another it moves me. This is one of those images. I’ve looked at it so many times and I love it more each time. I can’t put my finger on exactly why I love it so much, but that wee hand hold between Father and Son has definitely got something to do with it. ❤️

I’m so glad that I was able to capture the moment for this new Father now and for this new baby to enjoy in years to come. ❤️

Prepping for your Newborn Session | Newborn Photographer Renfrewshire & Glasgow

There are many, many things that you need to remember and consider when you have a newborn baby, its an amazing time, but it can also be stressful. The last thing you need is a complex list of instructions from you photographer, coaching you on how to prepare for your newborn session.

If you google 'Preparing for a newborn photography session' you will find various blog posts on all the do's and dont's for a successful session. It's a minefield, and while it may work well for some, its just not my thing. My prepping instructions are simple;  Come along with baby, at the dedicated time and leave it up to me to capture your baby in images for you to enjoy for a lifetime. 

You see, my style of newborn photography is very, very natural and totally baby led. If your baby is awake on arrival, I will capture that. If your baby is asleep, I will capture that. If your baby needs a feed, no problem. If they cry, no problem. Just come along and leave it up to me to produce images of your baby as they really are.

As your newborn photographer, my role is to capture images that will stir memories and emotions when you look back on them in years to come.

I have years of experience of photographing babies, and besides that I'm a Mum. I had 3 babies in less than 2 years so nothing phases me when it comes to settling newborns. I have a dedicated work flow that means that you will receive a gallery of images unique to your baby.

If you are interested in booking a natural newborn session with me, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. I'll be happy to hear from you.

 

Outdoor Kids | Renfrewshire Photographer

Do you remember the late summer, when the days were long and the sun was still shining? They may seem like a distant memory now, but I can assure you that they happened, there were a few and I have the images to prove it.

I always seem to be so lucky with my Outdoor Kids, on location photo shoots, in all the years I've been doing them I've only had to cancel once, I'd say thats quite something when you live and work in Scotland, where our weather isn't always kind. 

This session was one of my favourites from this year, three GORGEOUS kids in lovely low sun on a lovely end of summer/early autum day. It was perfect, even if we did have to 'contain' the littlest for some of our shots. ;) 

Outdoor Kids runs every year, there is a waiting list for slots as it ALWAYS sells out, usually before going on general release. So, if you want to find out when the next sessions are running, please head over the contact session and drop me a note. I'll add you to the list and you'll get first refusal when I have dates arranged.

Martha | Simple Newborn Photographs | Newborn Photographer Renfrewshire

Martha, a tiny little bundle of perfection, who didn't make a peep during her simple newborn photography session. Quite possibly one of my favourite newborn sessions yet, with simple, authentic props and styling and lots of natural newborn perfection. 

I dare you not to feel broody when you feast your eyes on these beautiful shots of this most beautiful little girl.

My booking diary is open for 2018. Please get in touch to arrange your baby photography session.

Much love,

Gracie | Toddler Portrait Session | Renfrewshire Photographer

Soft natural light, some simple styling and props and a beautiful little girl, that's all you need to create beautiful, timeless images that will transend gimmicks and trends. 

My laid back sessions are perfect for infants and toddlers who are never going to be interested in posing for the camera. The key is to just let them be themselves, let them act as they normally would and you'll get the perfect shot. Genuine connection and genuine expressions, what could be more perfect than that.

My 2018 booking diary is now open, if you'd like to discuss a session, please get in touch.

Much love, 

JVP.

Newborn Photography Glasgow - Baby Ciaran

This little guy came to me recently for his newborn photography shoot in my little studio near Glasgow. The third and final baby in a lovely family that I've had the pleasure of photographing in the past. A gorgeous little guy who has made his family complete. How lovely for me to be chosen to take his first professional photos, it makes my heart sing.

If I knew then, what I know now. | Paisley Baby Photographer

Then...

Then...

Yesterday my 'babies' turned 7.

If you had told me in the early days that we would be here so quickly, I would never have believed you. If you had told me in the early days, that 7 years would pass in the blink of an eye, I might have done some things a little bit differently.

I might taken more photographs when they were born, or at least, I would have used my real camera rather than the camera on my iPhone that would get lost in Tesco approximately 3 months after their arrival. I would most certainly have backed up the photos on that iPhone (Who knew about iCloud 7 years ago... Not me!) More importantly, I would have printed them all.

If you had told me that their first 6 years would be over in a flash, I would not have cared how I looked after giving birth and I would have begged my husband to take a photo of me holding my two precious darlings in my arms. I would have realised how lucky I was to have not only one, but two beautiful babies and I would have smiled for that photo, fat face and all.

I would have worried less about routine and getting back 'to normal' if I'd known that 7 was just around the corner. I wouldn't have believed that 'I was making a rod for my own back' by cuddling my babies to sleep. Oh no, I would have held them for every second that I could, if I'd known that them being so tiny would be over so soon.

I would have realised that the hell that is colic would be a distant memory in no time at all. And, I would have reminded myself over and over that all I was doing was good enough for them. I would not have made myself feel guilty or like a bad mummy if I laid one down to cry while I tended to the other. 

If I'd known that 7 would come so soon, I would have savoured those quiet moments in the early hours when it was just me and my babies awake. In those times when it felt that the whole world was sleeping except the 3 of us. Just me and my two little angels all swaddled up tight.

I would have made sure to note down their first crawl, first words, first steps. I didn't realise that I would ever forget them, or how much I'd wish that I hadn't.

If you had told me that they'd be turning 7 so quickly, I would have realised that its true what they say; 'The days are long, but the years are very, very short' and all that seems hard at the time, is hard to remember, when your babies are babies no more.

If you had told me in the early days, that the love that I felt for my babies would be nothing compared to the love that I'd feel 7 years on, I would have said you were crazy, how could it ever be possible to love them more? But, of course it is, and I do.

My babies are 7, and I couldn't be prouder of the unbelievably amazing and individual little people that they have become. Happy birthday, my darlings, I cannot believe that you are 7, but I'm excited for whatever 7 has in store.
