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. ❤️

Outdoor Kids | Family Photographer Renfrewshire | Family Photographer Glasgow

If you follow me on FB, Instagram or read this blog, you'll know that I love very simple studio set-ups. For indoor work, I concentrate on neutral colour schemes and simplicity, thats my style.

However, take me outside and I'm all about colours, textures and pretty foliage as backdrops. This style of photography is perfect for photographing the older children that I work with. 

Every year I run 'Outdoor Kids' sessions in the Renfrewshire area. They are always a blast and 9 years in I'm still loving them completely.

The summer sessions have been and gone for this year, however don't fret if you missed out because I'll probably add some late Autumn early Winter sessions later in the year.

Due to popularity, I operate a waiting list for these sessions so drop me a note via the contact form if you want to be added to the list for first refusal. 

Much love

JVP

Baby Photos | Glasgow & Renfrewshire

So, the newborn stage has come and gone and you didn't manage to get newborn photographs taken. Don't worry, you're not alone. 

Many clients come to me when their baby is out of the newborn stage, saying that they always meant to have a newborn photo shoot, but never got around to it. It happens, the newborn days are busy and its over in a flash. If you don't organise your photo-shoot while you are still pregnant, there is a good chance that you'll never get around to it, because all the days seem to pass so quickly.

Please don't worry, older baby photography is just as important as newborn photography and its actually one of my favourite stages to photograph. Your baby has a little personality shining through and the images that we can capture at this stage are just lovely.

Its best to have your baby photography shoot when your baby is around 6-10 months old, when they can sit on their own. There's nothing cuter, than a little sitting baby, with little chubby legs. I adore this stage, and its another that passes so quickly so capture it while you can.

I have a beautiful, cosy home studio in Bridge of Weir, that is perfectly set up to capture your baby photographs. Clients usually come to me from Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde. If you are in the local area and are thinking of a baby photo-shoot, I might just be the photographer for you.

Family as Art | Custom Framing | Newborn Photographer Glasgow

Digital images are hugely important to many of my clients, I get that! We live in the digital age where images are shared across various forms of Social Media, multiple times per day. I include digital files with all my packages as standard, however I really can't stress enough how important it is to print your images for prosperity.

I offer custom framing and many of my clients choose to have their favourite image printed and framed by me, this makes my heart happy. You see, there are many, many different forms of printing available in the market place today and many of them are really sub standard. High street printing facilities might be quick and cheap, but cheap isn't always good. Colours can be off, clarity is non existent, theres no depth or shadow... All the things that make a good picture good. Cheap printing can ruin a beautiful image and make it just not beautiful anymore.

Professionally taken photographs, should be professionally printed. You wont regret it.

Newborns Unscripted | Baby Photographer Renfrewshire

'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication' - Leonardo Da Vinci

Isn't that the truth? In years to come you won't care about elaborate poses or props. All you will care about is how your baby looked when they were brand new in this world. Don't underestimate the power of a simple image and how it will make you feel when those precious newborn days are a distant memory.

2018 sessions are now available for booking. If, like me, you can see the beauty in simplicity, please get in touch.

With love,

JVP

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.

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.

Portrait Photographer Glasgow | Children's Portraits

November 1st, I can't believe it, how on earth did we end up here? This year has flown by for me and has been the busiest year for my business to date. I am so thankful for that, for all my clients, old and new, and those who continue to support me and use my services, year in, year out.

When I first started photographing children, I was solely an outdoor photographer using natural light and nature focused backdrops in my images; I still love that more relaxed, informal style of shoot and run quarterly 'Outdoor Kids' sessions which always book up within days of release. However over the years, my work and style has evolved and these days you will often find me in studio making simple, distraction free portraits of children.

As a portrait photographer I am always striving to produce the best quality portraits that I can and there is nothing more beautiful than a simple, timeless portrait of your child to adorn your wall.

I love capturing children just as they are and have a relaxed approach when working with them, which, I believe, really puts them at ease. My style includes spontaneous, fun shots with natural smiles however, my real passion lies with Fine Art inspired images which capture so much more.

"Photography is about capturing souls, not smiles" Dragan Tapshanov 2013

My studio portrait sessions all include a series of Fine Art inspired images and I find more and more often that these are the shots from the session that parents really fall in love with and want to have hanging in their homes. I am a full service photographer, which means that you will always have tangible products from your session with me. I fully understand parents desire to have the digital files which are included in all of my collections , but you just can't beat seeing your beautiful, artistic portraits in printed form. I have seen many a mum moved to tears when I hand the finished products over.

All of my studio sessions take place in my allocated space in The Cargill Centre in Kilmacolm, which is a beautiful little rural village in Inverclyde. Clients travel to me from all over... Glasgow, Paisley, Greenock and surrounding areas. 

All of my full sessions are tailored to your needs, there is no time limit on shooting and pre session styling advice is given to ensure that you get the most from your portrait session with me.

Time flies, our children grow and change so quickly, but with beautiful portraits we can hold on to them just as they are. I would love to capture the beauty of your child for you.
