I get quite a few requests from families wanting outdoor shoots in Scotland at a place that has some meaning for them. I love doing these sessions but can't commit to doing that many whilst my children are still young. Melissa made contact with me a couple of years ago and we hit it off straightaway. Melissa and her husband were taking their children to visit Scotland for the first time, a country they have a special affinity for, and wanted to capture that in a photo-shoot. But the week before they were due to visit, their son broke his ankle and they had to put all their holiday plans on hold for a year. It all came together this year though and Glencoe looked the finest I've maybe ever seen it. As the sun started to drop, we hiked around the lower flanks of Buachaille Etive Mhor (let's climb up it next next time guys). The kids were able to run and adventure just like they should and l came along to capture them all on this wonderful trip.
