Spring has Sprung and so will our Oaks!!

Mr James Pringle, 14th Laird of Torwoodlee

We received a lovely email here at Vanilla Moon Photography yesterday!! Remember our special oaks that we delivered to James Pringle, Laird of Torwoodlee?  Here's a little refresh but in a nutshell Mr Pringle very kindly agreed to plant out nine of our Oaks that had been growing since our little girl, Emilia, was born.

It's fair to say that this has not been an easy winter - and certainly not a time for planting out such precious saplings.  Well, now that has changed.  Yesterday was the first day of spring - and what a gorgeous, sunny day it was too! Perfect, for finally planting out those little oaks!! They now sit among the Elms that border the path to Torwoodlee Tower.  We are so grateful that Emilia's Oaks are now going to spread their roots in a place of historical importance and that they will be looked after and cared for.  We can't thank James enough.  Roll on summer when we can go and visit and see how they are getting on!

Cuddling in a Winter Wonderland

Children's Portraits | Scottish Borders

❄️ ❄️ Are you ready for the snow? After the initial heavy flurry I always find snow quite tranquil. To me, there's nothing lovelier than an adventure in fresh snowy surroundings. This shot, taken in the Highlands, sums it up for me. We stumbled upon this majestic, ancient woodland along the Great Glen Way. The winter sun was streaming through the snow-clad trees creating an almost fairy-tale landscape. The scene just made the kids look so tiny!! ❄️❄️

Why not have me recreate something similar for you when the snow arrives?

Blooming Marvelous...

Maternity Session | Scottish Borders

OK, I admit it.  I am obsessed with capturing sunlight streaming through trees.  There I said it.  The thing is, when you have a beautifully blooming mama to be in front of the camera its hard not to take advantage of the low winter sun to highlight how contented she looked.  The gorgeous purples of the maternity gown, the flowing hair and flowers...and that BUMP!  What more can I say?  I will let the photo do the talking.  Except to also say - I LOVE MY JOB!!
