My little water babies

I have travelled alot with Water Babies this year, it has been great but a bit tough for the kids.  So when I got the chance for them to come to a shoot and see what I do we jumped at it (with an almighty splash!) There were both Water Babies since they were months old and the classes have been a huge part of their lives.  They are both great wee swimmers, so confident in the water and I could not rate Water Babies highly enough for the skills they taught them at such a young age.

We had a bit of fun making some images for our Christmas cards.


Daniel’s 1st Day of School

I can’t quite believe how quickly this day has come.  No tears from anyone this morning as my little boy went off for his first day of school.  Excited to see his friends and for the adventure that lies ahead of him he went skipping into the classroom.

Yvonne & Mike – Garden Suite, Norton House Hotel

I had been very much looking forward to Yvonne & Mike’s wedding after our pre wedding shoot in December.  Yvonne and her Mum had put so much into the planning of their big day and it was so lovely to see it all come together.   A little bit of rain wasn’t going to dampen their spirits, Yvonne was grinning from ear to ear all day. We had lots of fun dodging the rain and making the most of the lovely grounds around the Garden Suite at Norton House Hotel.  It was lovely to see everyone having such a good time, they were a really fun group of people. Great to work Edinburgh Film Company again, and many thanks to Claire for 2nd shooting.  Very jealous that these guys were off to Florida for their honeymoon, hope you had a great time!Gall_01Gall_02Gall_03Gall_04Gall_05Gall_06Gall_08Gall_07Gall_11Gall_12Gall_10Gall_13Gall_14Gall_15Gall_16Gall_17Gall_18Gall_19Gall_20Gall_21Gall_22Gall_23Gall_24Gall_25Gall_26Gall_27Gall_28Gall_29Gall_30Gall_31Gall_32Gall_33Gall_34Gall_35Gall_36Gall_37Gall_38Gall_09Gall_39Gall_40Gall_41Gall_43Gall_44Gall_45Gall_46

LG Makeup – 10 year Celebration

I was delighted when Lucy asked me to capture just a few images of her celebrations.  I was actually the photographer at Lucy’s very first Scottish wedding, 10 years ago.

When the beautiful  Twenty Seven Stationery invitation arrived I knew this evening would be quite special and I was not disappointed.  It was held in the beautiful surroundings of The Caledonian Waldorf Astoria, a gathering of local wedding suppliers were treated to Prosecco and canapes before a slice (or two or three) of delicious cake provided by Heather’s Cakes. It was lovely to get dressed up for the night and see everyone looking so glamorous.

Many thanks to Robin Stewart Hospitality for ensuring the evening ran so smoothly.

Our Final treat of the night was a little goody bag featuring a Jane Iredale Lip Plumper, Cake Pop and sweeties.


Here are a few shots from the night before I swapped the camera for a glass of fizz and caught up with lots of old friends.


Lucy, it is always the greatest pleasure to work with you, I am so privileged to be able to call you my friend.  Thank you for all your recommendations and support and here is to the next 10 years of friendship and working together.

Cherry Tree films caught the fun and laughter on film which can be viewed here.

Thank you to everyone for such a great night, look forward to catching up again soon. If you would like to see all the images from the night they are available to view and download here.

Yvonne & Mike – Pre Wedding Shoot, South Queensferry

It was touch and go with the great Scottish Weather but after a lovely cuppa and catch up the heavy showers passed and we could get out.   Living in Aberdeen (Mike’s home town) but getting married in Edinburgh in the summer they chose South Queensferry as they love the views on their journey between their two homes. It was freezing, and so windy but they were so brave and I am really pleased with the images we got.  Really looking forward to seeing you both again before the wedding and making our final plans for the big day.
