If You Go Down to the Woods Today.....

Watch out for this little boy and his teddy bears!!! 

It was a day for birthday celebrations on Saturday and Hugo is another little boy I had the pleasure of photographing when he was a newborn baby.  Here he is, enjoying all the wonders of a summer afternoon, tucking into his strawberries with some of his favourite pals.

I hope you had an amazing Birthday, Hugo! It was lovely to see you again! X

Birthdays and Balloons!

Here is little Struan - a year on from when I last photographed him as a teeny tiny newborn! I loved catching up with him and seeing how he is growing into a beautiful little boy, full of cheeky smiles and laughter!  Enjoy your birthday, Struan!!  x

Calum and Layla Tie the Knot at The Merchant's Hall, Edinburgh!

Last Saturday saw Calum and Layla make their promises in front of family and friends in a very romantic Merchant's Hall, Edinburgh.  They had a beautiful Humanist ceremony with celebrant Jackie Grant.  The setting was absolutely perfect for their big day, with a big domed roof, huge windows and ornate fireplaces - we even managed to make it out between the odd shower for a couple of photos on Rose Street.

Once again, huge congratulations to a lovely couple - and thank you so much for having me along to photograph your special day!

Layla and her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done by Janice Dawson, JD Bridal Hair.  The  flowers, a gorgeous pastel bouquet,  by Flowers by McDowell's and Layla's stunning dress was from Pretty Woman, Meadowbank.

Sunny Days

Well, what a week we have had! It's really felt like the start of summer for most of us!

It was a delight to take full advantage and welcome back a lovely family that I photographed just over a year ago, when their little bundle of fun arrived! Now he is tottering around and exploring the great outdoors - making the most of the glorious sunshine on a beautiful spring afternoon!

....A Little Boy with a Spring in His Step!!

What a brilliant outdoor shoot I had on Saturday!! Three lovely ladies (a mum and her two daughters) and Calvin - a very cheeky chappy who kept me on my toes throughout the entire shoot! What a little superstar....and oh, soooo cute!!!

Everything's Rosie!

I love a good pet portrait!! Especially when that pet is a lovely, well behaved dog such as Rosie! She was perfect and made for a seamless shoot!! She definitely brought the sunshine with her!

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!

A Fleeting Moment..

Newborn shoots are among my favourite to do. It's a real privilege to share in that moment when everything is brand new.  The overwhelming feelings and emotions between parent, baby and sibling.  It brings it all flooding back to when my babies were brand new too.  So I know how important it is to capture it.

I love to take my time and set up shots, making sure everything perfect so that mum and dad have some beautiful images to look back upon for years to come.  Memories to cherish. Sometimes, though, it is that split second moment that you have to capture before it is gone forever.  Like the unmistakable connection between sisters that presents itself.  That's where the skill of a photographer comes into its own.  This wonderful little shoot had many moments - but two in particular I think, really sum up the love for a newborn baby and the pride of an older sibling.

Getting Back into the Swing of Things....

I certainly can't complain about going back to work! My maternity leave has finished, and what better way to return than having two brand new babies visit the studio!

Each one completely and utterly adorable!! I do LOVE my job!!
