In October of 2014 I (Chantal) had the absolute honour and pleasure to attend a newborn workshop with the crazy talented Linzie Russo in her Glasgow studio. It was even more special knowing that she put on this last minute work shop before emigrating with her family to sunny Australia! As if she wasn’t busy enough. Goes to show how dedicated she is! The special touches put into the workshop went above and beyond. From gift bags to a lovely spread of food including gluten free options for myself. I have always followed and loved her work so to have the opportunity to learn from a master in this field was incredible.
Our little model for the shoot was Emily! the lovely Lindsey Parker from Mack Photography’s new little bundle of joy. Lindsey, her husband and little Emily did an amazing job modelling for the whole group of us taking turns to capture our take on the scene. I took away so much from this shoot just watching how Linzie sets up a scene, how she handles the baby, how to pose the parents with the baby and much more. On top of this I got to meet and get to know more fellow photographers who are part of this incredible industry.
Thank you so much for throwing a workshop together at the last minute Linzie! Wishing you and your family an incredible life and adventure in Australia
