It's all about family - the McGauley clan, portrait photography.

On Saturday I was asked to photograph a friend from school's gorgeous family. I had never had so many people, and kids, in the studio at the one time.

It was a great couple of hours and everyone was in great spirits. Poppy managed loads of poses and even a couple of dress changes and Alex had fun running around the studio, ensuring he got in as many shots as possible.

Ger and family are hoping to use some of the images for Christmas gifts, which is a great idea. I'm really pleased with the results.
