Yay – it’s finally the school holidays! The last term was so busy it flew by, but it was so busy it was exhausting. Our holiday days have been filled with lots of hanging out, DVD’s, days at the pool, baking, hanging out, a few craft projects, reading, lounging in pj’s till midday and nothing […]

It’s confession time…. My family, the Larmour Family, have never had professional photos taken of us. I hear glass shattering, the gasps of shock and screams of horror around town…. I promise it’s not for the want of trying… twice I’ve contacted photographers in the UK and tried to arrange shoots when we’ve been there… […]

  • Kate - I do think you rock the self timer but I can’t wait to see photos of all of you in Paris!

  • Angus - I’ve got to admit feeling a little let down, KB! I saw ‘confessions’ and I thought you’d turned a page in your photographic career and moved on to Robin Askwith territory. But no, just more photos of you and the gorgeous collection of people you call family. Fame awaits you.

  • janine - ‘i love Paris in the springtime…’ i can’t wait to see what this family session brings. it’s about time you were able to enjoy yourself and let someone else do all the work!

  • Kate - Ok let me first say this…I TOTALLY feel ya. We definitely need to have an entourage which includes a prof photog at all times!
    But these are wonderful memories…they might not be perfect but they’re you – in the moment. The ones you’re not in you’ll still remember everything about because of all the work you put into getting them. I have had to accept over the last couple of years that whether they’re perfect or not (usually not) ANY pictureiof us all together is better than no picture.
    You have a wonderful collection of pictures and you certainly know how to rock the self timer.
    Still, I can’t wait to see your Paris session…just try to read your website advice for clients first…relax and enjoy yourselves lol! Xoxo

  • SarahInParis - Hey gorgeous lady I can’t WAIT to photograph you and your gorgeous family. I’m SUPER excited for you to be in front of the lens and capture the magic of you and your gorgeous family. I’m super excited too. And hey no pressure or anything for me …. yikes!

    And have to say my dear the family photos you have done yourself are pretty impressive! See you really soon. xxx

  • THE OTHER SIDE | PARIS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | SARAH GARDAN PHOTOGRAPHY » paris france | baby child family engagement portrait photographer | sydney australia - […] bit more pressure Kirsty had never had professional family photos taken before (as you can read here). So understandably she was super excited about our photography session. Yikes!! No pressure […]

  • Amy Lucy Lockheart - I think I need to have another girl just so I can call her Indigo Indy. 🙂 Sweet girl looks so much like her big sister and her mama. All these special memories are so important to document, and I just know your precious Indy will love reading theese letters when she is older. xoxo

  • Sarah C - I second Amy she has the most gorgeous name ever and she is just sooooo beautiful!! You can really just see the light that shines right through. I so love your letters sweety.

  • Ninka - I love these letters Kirsty, your girls will treasure them so much when they are women! Well done for taking the moments to create something so special for them <3 (P.S Bella has that dress, it is one of her favs!)

  • Jody - Before I even read your first word, I had a smile from ear-to-ear on my face, she really does have a light to her that shines through. Across an ocean, a world away, her light is shining and making this moment in a dark and quiet house brighter. I love how much these letters will mean to our daughters and I’m so happy to be doing this project with you.

  • Rashmi - How I love that you really see, really know, really hear your daughters Kirsty. You are such a wonderful mummy, they are so lucky to have you. I love that Indy loves lettuce and spinach! She is a beauty.. a petite princess indeed! <3

When I moved to the U.A.E. I was struck by what a beautiful and geographically diverse country it is.  A few months ago I showed off how amazingly stunning the U.A.E. desert is in a shoot (which you can see here!) As a girl who grew up surrounded by mountains, the first time I saw […]

You didn’t think I was going to let the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee pass without a shoot did you? We Brits love to celebrate – and we had a lot of fun for the Royal Wedding last year! Especially as a British mummy of 2 non-British kids, who have never spent much time in the country […]
