I met Rachael when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding i photographed in July, i should also mention what an awesome chief bridesmaid she was, she had everything covered and even did a speech for her best buddy Denni. Rachael is now living in Australia working as a nurse but before she left she wanted some really relaxed, fun family portraits with her mum, dad, brother, nephew and family dog. I’m not a big fan of awkward posed pictures in a confined space, i love being outdoors and making the most of what Scotland has to offer. It didn’t take long in to the shoot to realise the Dalgarno family didn’t take themselves to seriously, i’m a bit of a goofball at heart so we were all in good company, taking a mix of silly photos and some lovely family shots. Rachael really wanted a photograph with Bennachie in the background, i’m a big Bennachie fan too, regularly climbing it from the age of 4, so we got in our cars and drove down a farmer’s drive, ran down a dirt track. took a few pics then ran back to our cars before we were caught!
