About Maxine McCall

Hey! Thanks for coming to my website. I’m Maxine and I am a lifestyle photographer with a penchant for moments; special moments which I’ve been capturing from behind a lens for over 14 years. I live in the wee coastal town of Stonehaven with my partner Kev and my two cheeky monkeys, Leon and Freya, who keep me busy outside of my passion for photography. Sometimes they feature in my photos because, like you, I like to capture memories. Memories and moments are so precious.

I take pride in every moment I capture whether I am photographing a precious newborn, an energetic toddler or a family event. Even after photographing people for so many years, I always find a new feeling, expression, or moment. That’s why I love my work and why I love working with people. Our life events are so momentous.

My favourite things outside of my love for photography are my kids, my Kev, and my sweet tooth. I love salted caramel. Probably too much… If that’s even possible? A mojito doesn’t go amiss now and then either.

My Training

There is so much more to photography than just picking up a camera and snapping away, if it’s done right then it can be an experience in itself. Not just for you, but for me too. If you’ve never worked with a family photographer before, you’ll find the experience truly warming. I often capture giggles, I definitely capture warmth and I always capture love. Hopefully you will love this experience as much as I love helping to create it. I have listed my training below, I am always investing in my passion, there’s always something new and exciting to learn.
