Winter land by Ola Molik Glasgow Photographer
Having a picture of smiling and sitting still siblings is something that every parent should have.
Just for keep sake, to remember that despite their constant fights and arguments they really love each other.
When winter comes there are two things that I really miss here in Glasgow.
It is my brother who is far away from here, especially I can feel it before Christmas.
The other thing is snow.
Yes, you can laugh if you want but I truly adore these white fluffy snowflakes and the icy weather which freezes your toes and makes your nose as red as Rudolph.
When winter time began I and my brother used to go skiing in the Polish mountains and it was something that we were really waiting for.
I remember so well making snowmen. We used to ask parents to give us old pots to decorate them with the most beautiful hats.
Oh, how often mum said that it was her last pot and she only could give us some charcoal for nose and there could be a snowman without a cap.
We couldn’t imagine a snowman standing a whole day on icy weather only with a nose.
Then when we grew up we started going there with our friends.
Today, when we only have a chance, we go there to build a snowman with our children and persuade them that we need some pots in the kitchen .
Of course because of the distance our meetings are not so often but there is one thing which makes the brother-sister relation strong.
They are pictures. Thanks to some photos we can share these moments with our children, telling them all those stories behind them.
We can also use them to persuade our kids: you see your uncle and mummy did not fight together all the time about all those silly things!
Now when I have my photography studio in Glasgow I am so happy to create this winter land for my own little siblings but also for yours.
Thanks to amazing possibilities of children’s photography you can give your children the opportunity to have some fun in the snow in the city centre of Glasgow.
What is more, they won’t be cold.
But the more important is the fact that due to these brother sister photos they will come back to these moments and to each other in the future, even if their roads will be split by thousands kilometers.
And trust me, I know what I am saying!
