Family Heirloom Portraits

" I have photographed hundreds of babies over the years and it is obviously great for parents to have these reminders of their baby's early years , but looking back I have noticed that very few parents , grand parents or great grand parents ever ask to be involved in the photo sessions . These images [ if taken ] form part of your new baby's family history and will become family heirlooms , so we are going to make a conscious effort to do more of these and our Fine Art sessions are an ideal style to capture these memories . I know it's not everyone that enjoys being photographed , I know I don't and that's why I stay behind the camera , but I feel that these family memories are very important and will become treasured memories for your future generations , so if you would like to be photographed with your baby [ also grandparents and great grandparents ] please mention this when you contact me and we will arrange a special session for you all ."

What I want to do for you  

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 . 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 . Although I have been taking photographs for many years [ starting out with film and printing my own black and white work ] , I am always looking to learn and have recently started an Advanced Photoshop course , this way I am always improving and my clients get even better images . Please contact me to find out what we can do for you

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 ."
