There is nothing more important than family – and while we normally get to capture families in the ‘here and now’, it’s a special treat when we get to help a family revisit their roots, and learn the history of where they really came from! For Elizabeth’s mom, Penny, this meant an extra-special birthday trip to Scotland to learn more about her ancestry, while also enjoying some mother-daughter bonding time. We  were so excited when we heard we would have the chance to capture these ladies again (they had an awesome multi-generational shoot in Paris!*), and these pictures captured by Jilli did not disappoint! Check out the photos from this birthday adventure around Edinburgh, Scotland, and take a step back in time…

“For my mom’s 75th birthday we decided to retrace her history with a visit to Scotland. Having worked with Flytographer previously while vacationing in Paris, I knew right away it was worthwhile adding a quick photography session to our travel plans.”

“The experience working with Jilli in Edinburgh was nothing short of fun. She helped us relax and get comfortable behind the lens. The result is a collection of fabulous photographs that are a true expression of our mother/daughter bond and the trip of a lifetime!”

Jilli was wonderful to work with. She selected a central spot to meet us and was waiting enthusiastically when we arrived. She helped break the ice with some playful shots and told us all about the history of the scenery around us.”

She captured the playfulness and joy my mom and I share. Above all, she captured our love with some very memorable pictures I look forward to sharing with my daughters.” – Elizabeth
