My son and my eldest grandson Lochlan kiss Rowan John the newest member of the family. He arrived two weeks earlier than expected which was very clever of him as I had holiday leave and was able to travel up to Aberdeenshire and stay for a week.We rented a holiday cottage at Glen Gairn and Lochlan visited us every day, giving his mum and dad time to rest when Rowan slept. (Notice how tired and unshaven my son is!).
Technically this shot is not too hot but it was the best I could manage at the time.I had my camera set on sports mode just to be sure I could catch Lochlan before he moved. They were backlit by a window and I just had to grab a snap before Lochlan moved away.Lochlan is a very active 22m month old little boy who never stays still for one minute. It was a scoop just to encourage him to be still long enough to offer a kiss to his brother.

Priceless Bev!

What a beautiful picture.
Three of your loved ones captured in one picture. Now I am sure this picture you will print and keep close to you.
The light coming from the window makes it all the more perfect.
Welcome Rowan John and congratulations to you all.


Indeed Bev - a 'grab' shot but it's turned out well. The composition is ideal for this kind of family shot and the backlight has worked very nicely.


what a precious photograph! You captured the sweetness in youg Lochlan's face and the softness of your son's touch to Rowan. Your photo is nice and sharp...even their eyelashes stand out. nicely done!

Hello Bev,
This is absolutely a charming photo, I can't just skip without inputting a c/c. The composition is exquisite as you have effectively isolated their faces. LOve is in the air. My compliments and regards...Danilo

OH MY....




I was walking through your gallery and found this! I love it! SO much emotion! Such a special time, perfectly caught here! Your composition is wonderful Bev! The little bit of OE in it doesn't take away from the shot at all. You get an award for this one Bev!
