Family photos!

I think I mentioned we were having family photos taken by our wedding photographer Neil and it kept getting delayed for various reasons? Well, it’s finally happened and I LOVE them!

We really wanted them taken outside and picked Calton Hill because it’s central and those views of the city are so nice. I was really worried because Edinburgh (which is always windy anyway) is being pummelled by gales at the moment. The day before the photos was the worst and even in the morning of photo day it was looking pretty horrid. But actually once we actually got up there it was ok. My beautifully straightened hair was all over the place immediately of course, but that kind of adds character, right? (so I tell myself)

We had these done because Dave’s mum wanted a picture of the three of us in a frame for her Christmas. It’s not really such a done thing here to pay someone to take family pictures (I gather it’s much more normal in the US), but I think it’s such a great thing to do. I’m really glad we have these!

Incidentally, which one would you have picked for framing?

    These are lovely pictures, fantastic background and very natural. I think it’s great to have pictures of the three of you and that’s not always easy to achieve, I think there are only 2 or 3 of me with both my parents as a little girl as one of them would usually be taking the photos

      Same here, it’s really hard to get family pictures you take yourself!

    They are great and have so much energy! You all look fantastic, but also I think it really shows how you guys are as a family… if that makes sense. x

      Thank you! I think the wind added a lot of energy 😉

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love family photos. They are definitely a thing to do here. Especially for the holidays so you can stick a photo on your holiday card 🙂

    I love the fourth one from the bottom. I’d frame and gift it. Actually is frame loads more. It’s hard to just pick one!

      thank you! Your choice is what everyone went for

    Beautiful photos, and the colours of Edinburgh and your outfits blend so well! I would frame the one 5th from the top, the one in which you have your hand on your hip.

    • Franca 26 March 2014, 3:01 pm

      that was my choice too, but everyone we printed stuff for went for the other group one!

    These are so great! Neil was our wedding photographer too, such a great guy. I love the view behind you, just lovely family shots.

    They are so fun and I love the location as well, its the perfect backdrop 🙂 Great photos!

    Also agree with the hand on the hip shot, you look relaxed and happy, yeay!
