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.

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.

Renfrewshire Photographer - Outdoor Kids 2017

So, every year I plan to blog every session of every week of every month, but hey! who needs silly plans like that anyway? As usual, its nearly the end of Summer and I haven't blogged anything for months! So, here I go playing catch up (which wont last long, as I'm just heading into my busiest months of the year) but, I can dream, right?

As many of you who follow me on Facebook will know, I've been shooting a lot of 'Outdoor Kids' sessions this year. Back when I started them (9 years ago!!) I only did summer sessions, but as the years have gone on, they've become so popular that I've had to add additional dates throughout my calendar and now I'm shooting them pretty much all year round. 

The summer sessions are just about to come to a close, with the last lot due to take place in a couple of weeks time. After that, it will be warm woolies and wellie boots as we head into Autumn/Winter season. I can't wait, but for now, I'll leave you with this session from summer 2017, when the weather stayed right on our side for an amazing day of photography in Renfrewshire.

If you would like to be added to the waiting list for my next Outdoor Kids sessions. Please fill in your details on the Contact form of this website. Thank you.

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.
