" If your family is the most important thing in the world to you , if you want a memory you will cherish forever , if you realise how quickly things can change , you can capture your family's happiest moment , and hold on to it forever . It has long been acknowledged that family photographs on display in a home help boost a child’s sense of identity and create a sense of belonging . Each time they walk past a family photograph , which is countless times each day , a message is sent , a message that says : " You , my dear child , are important . You matter . You have a special place in this world . You are a part of this thing we call family and we love you " .

About me  

In 2001 , after 17 years in the same job , I decided to follow my heart and , with the support of my wife , left my job and turned my love of photography into a business . Shortly after starting out , I qualified with the Master Photographers Association and was voted Best Newcomer in the annual Scottish Master Photographers Association Awards . I work mostly from my own home based Portrait Studio , with off street parking , although I can also do location sessions when required [ Scottish weather permitting ] . I only book a limited number of sessions a day , so there is plenty of time between clients , this means there is no rush and gives you plenty of time to settle in . I also cover a limited amount of weddings each year , please contact me to find out more .

I love photographing people and cover everything from Baby Photography to Family Groups , including Model Folio work . All images are created on high end Canon cameras and are printed at one of the biggest digital labs in the UK . Quality is very important to me and I do everything in my power to make sure your images are as good or better than you could get anywhere and at prices that offer great value for money . If you are thinking about having photographs taken , of any family member , please give me a call and I will be more than happy to have a chat with you about your own personal requirements and I will do my utmost to provide you with images that you will treasure for a lifetime . 

I see it as my job as a photographer to look after your images from beginning to end , this process starts the second the image is captured and only ends when I hand over the finished , high quality product to the client , ready to hang on their wall . We only use the very best products to ensure that you get years of pleasure from looking at your finished Portraits .

All of our prints and wall products are printed and manufactured by one of the best and biggest Photographic Printers in the UK , this ensures that the beautiful images we create for our clients are presented to the very highest standards . I take great pride in my work and we think our clients deserve the very best .

100% guaranteed . We are confident that you will love the images we create for you , if not , we will refund your session fee .

What my clients say ... 

"One of my greatest fears as a parent is forgetting the funny little ways of my children - it's an old cliche , but they grow up so fast . However Ian manages , somehow , to capture not just their physical likeness , but something of their heart and spirit , so that when I look back , I can see them just as they were . He'll dance , sing , play , make jokes and fool around to ensure everyone feels comfortable and relaxed and this all results in the most beautiful pictures . Ian could not be more accommodating , but it's people first and pictures second  . My kids just think he's one of their friends now "

Claire Chisholm , Dumbarton

"I chose to have my twins photographed newborn by Ian and I'm so glad I did . Ian created the perfect environment to capture precious shots of my two babies that take pride of place in my house , we've now had our first sitting for our babies First Year Folio as well . It takes great patience to photograph twins and Ian has this a plenty . Thanks to Ian's patience and talent , I now have photos that will last forever ."
