🍂 "Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness, Close Bosom-Friend of the Maturing Sun..." 🍁

As much as I love Summer, I can't deny that Autumn comes a close second favourite time of year for capturing those timeless images. The colour changes of the leaves make the perfect backdrop for any photo shoot. And what better location than in the Scottish Borders? So why not give away a FREE portrait shoot? Oh yes! Head on over to the Vanilla Moon Photography Facebook Page and follow the instructions on the post. Good luck!

A Thing of True Beauty....

A wonderful day was spent photographing The Flying Scotsman yesterday - here are two of my favourites and a few in between! My children waving as it passes south of Stow and over the mighty Forth Rail Bridge. Both shots completely worth the wait, it was magical and I must confess, I shed a tear or two. It was a magnificent sight and I am proud that I have been able to share it with my children! 

Prints are available from this section - please click here to order.

Happy Birthday Dexter!

What a lot of fun it was to welcome little Dexter back to the studio! This time to celebrate his first Birthday!! I have photographed Dexter three times now, and he never fails to put a smile on my face!! What a cheeky little man he is! Hope you have a wonderful Birthday!!

Tiptoe...through the Daffodils!

I had the most adorable photoshoot on Saturday! Everything came together just brilliantly - a lovely family, a beautiful little girl, a stunning location and the weather was just right - A perfect spring day for a perfect photoshoot! An extra special thanks goes to the landowner for allowing me to use such a stunning location!

Happy Birthday Lewes!

Today was my little boy's first birthday!! We didn't do a cake smash - instead I took him out to the woods for a little adventure in the beautiful snowdrops!  He was full of soil by the end of the shoot - but that didn't matter, it was all good fun!

Jayne Wright Photography; Women's Sessions

I am so proud to announce a new service that I have been working on for the last few weeks! Before I begin, I would like to thank the wonderful, gorgeous ladies that came forward and offered to help me out; without them, my new project would not have been possible and for that I am enormously grateful and owe them all a great deal of thanks!

This is a dedicated photography session for women that covers many disciplines of portraiture. As a woman myself, I know that sometimes we like to feel that bit special - perhaps because we forget about ourselves as we go about our daily routines, or because we get so involved in our careers...or we start a family and put the needs and wants of others first.   As such, I wanted to provide an area of portraiture that would make us feel special, beautiful and the centre of attention, as we deserve to be! The session may only take a precious hour or two, but the results last a lifetime.

As a photographer, I find that the majority of clients that get in touch with me are women - but it is never for themselves, it is either for their children, or their partners, or extended family! So, time for a change! Why not book in for a session..if you fancy something to make you feel a bit girly, have a giggle, or maybe something a bit more daring! Please take a look at my new slideshow portfolio of images that gives just a taster of what I can do!

....but don't just take my word for it.  Take a look at the kind words that some of the ladies have said about their experiences of having their portrait taken.


Gemma's Boudoir Session

"I was nervous at first, but Jayne made me feel so relaxed and gave fantastic instruction to get the best of me. She was so fun to sit for and even managed to get my camera shy friend to have a couple of pictures taken too. The photos are brilliant, elegant and so natural."

Christine's Boudoir Session, with makeup by Danni Burnside

"I loved my photoshoot! From the minute I met her, Jayne put me at ease. I felt like a real model getting direction on how to pose which was great as normally I hate getting photos taken. I didn't feel self conscious at all and the pictures are truly amazing, it's me but a gorgeous version of me I didn't think existed! I can't wait for my prints to arrive! Thanks millions!"

Angela and Betty's Portrait Session

"I really enjoyed spending time with Jayne. She really put me at ease, was great including Betty our Cockapoo in the photoshoot and came up with some great ideas. I am so pleased with the photos and would highly recommend Jayne -she has really captured a relaxed yet professional look with us."

Clare's Maternity Session

" When Jayne was looking for ladies to take pictures of I volunteered. Not because I am vain but quite the opposite. She wanted to show Real Women and I thought I was a good example. My body tells a story, one which I am proud of. Despite many unsuccessful pregnancies, various surgeries and now two wonderful babies not to mention my advanced age my body is something I am proud of / have come to terms with. I'm not skinny but I'm comfortable in my own skin. This is how real women look! I knew Jayne would make me feel relaxed and the shoot would be fun and enjoyable. Jayne has taken many photos of members of my family and it always amazes me how she can capture a moment perfectly. She just seems to bring out the best in everyone she works with."

Vicky's Portrait Session

" Jayne's professional approach not only made me feel at ease with being the focus of the photos, but as a mum of three lively boys, she also made it a lot of fun to do something, just for me. I think that Jayne has been able to capture all that and more in the final photos... and to top it all off my boys think I look like a princess not just a mummy."

Eribe @ Stobo

I was recently asked to shoot a new collection for Eribe, a Scottish Knitwear design company based in Galashiels.  We had a lovely morning, albeit very cold, photographing two gorgeous models in the grounds of Stobo.  Their Japanese Gardens made a lovely backdrop and the colours really suited the beautiful knitwear.  Thanks to all involved for their cooperation and inspiration!

The Whole World In His Hands

Yesterday I had the privilege to meet this beautiful little boy after his mum and dad booked a newborn, six months and one year photo-shoot.

He was absolutely adorable, and after a wee bit of chill out time with dad, slept like a little angel!

I can’t wait to meet him again in six months time!!

Little Logan's Birthday Photoshoot!

I have to say this little cake-smash was up there with one of the funniest I've done!  Logan LOVED the cupcakes I baked, and certainly made light work of them!!  Apologies to his mum for the sugar rush that surely followed!!
