Family Photographer Edinburgh
You have thousands of pictures of the children on your iPhone and not one on your walls.
The "baby" is now 3 and you never got round to getting him photographed properly, and Grandma keeps asking when she can have a decent framed print of you all for her mantelpiece. And you must be invisible because you're not in any of them.
You’ve barely got the energy to get your highlights done, so the idea of rounding everyone up for family photographs just makes you want to lie down in a darkened room and slip some vodka into your chai tea.
You’re pulled in so many directions in the chaos of balancing work, husband and children, you feel constantly guilty that you’re not a good mum because you’re juggling so much.
You're at work, the older kids are at school, the wee one's at nursery, and the guilt burns you.
Switch your phone off, leave the dishes till later. What's the worst that can happen if you just walk away from all the chaos for a wee while?
Get away from work, from soft play hell, never-ending play dates, ferrying children around, the constant fire-fighting.
I can’t help you clear your schedule ...
... but I can capture the precious times you spend with your family for the walls of your home, for heirloom albums the children will love looking at with you right now then pore over with their own children.
(And don’t forget Grandma’s mantelpiece.)
The peace that comes with seeing beautiful images on your walls and albums created over the years of the people who mean the most to you is absolutely priceless.
Custom artwork showing the different personalities that make your family what it is, banishing your guilt at trying to be supermum and please everyone.
Reminders of the good times together, the deep connection and love you share as a family, so often lost in the daily grind.
Stop for a moment, slow down, take yourself back to those moments of love and fun you see immortalised in print, on your walls. Feel a smile soothe your frantically ticking mind and warm your soul.
Because even if the washing up fairies didn’t come when we were out, beautiful images on your walls of quality time spent outdoors playing with your children and holding hands with your husband will always remind you of what’s really important.
What fabulous pictures of J you just showed me – actually made me v emotional! You were brilliant, you have such a talent and really put her at ease to get the shots which I’m sure is the hardest part. They are amazing – you have really captured her personality to a tee, can’t thank you enough.
Massive thanks, Donna! I am completely overwhelmed at how well the photos have turned out and every single one is just so beautiful, you are truly awesome and talented, it’s unreal! You’d never have thought the boy in the photos had just woken up 15 minutes beforehand and said he didn’t want to be in any photos at all, yet you’ve captured him perfectly. Sorry he was a bit out of sorts but you were brilliant at getting him to come round, and he ended up really enjoying it too. Thank you so much.
