Winter Wedding at Norton House Hotel I had a fantastic time this week capturing the wedding day of Helen and Gavin. Helen had wished for snow for her big day and what do you know we got.....a snow day! It was truly magical with the snow falling all around, festive feelings and the happiness of everyone there, it all made for a really amazing day and I felt really lucky to be able to be a part of it all. 

Back in the studio soon for lots of new 2018 babies and I just can't wait. I don't think my job could get much better at this point!

Hoping that all my customers and followers had a great Christmas and New Year. I will look forward to seeing lots of you again in 2018.

Here's a little preview from Helen and Gav's big day to share with you all.

With thanks to Kirsty at Bella photography who was my assistant..snow buddies!

Here's just a few of the photos taken on the day as a little preview for you all.

This weeks cake smashes Had a couple of great cake smash sessions this week. These are a fantastic way to celebrate babies first birthday if they love a good messy play.  I love putting together little themes or matching colours for these shoots. Cake smash sessions tend to be bright, colourful and lots of fun.

At the start of cake smash sessions we take a couple of photos of our birthday boy or girl in a nice outfit for some more traditional portraits. we then get them changed into a little nappy cover and let them lose on a Giant cupcake. most babies just love squishing it all and painting the floor with cake. After they've had their messy fun we put them in my freestanding baby bathtub for some nice splish splash photos. one of my favourite types of session.

Prices and more info can be found on the website.

Maryann and Ryan Wedding at St Serfs and Lochore Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Maryann and Ryan on their wedding day and what a day it was! They were so much fun and welcoming it was great to be a part of the day. Don't think I’ve ever seen Lochore institute look that amazing, weather was better today but a bit unpredictable but we did get a few of the Bride and Groom at Lochore meadows.

Again St serfs is a no flash and no movement kind of venue but I still managed to get some really nice shots of their ceremony. LOVE the one of the Groom looking like the happiest man ever. Hope they all had a fantastic day and are enjoying their weekend of celebrations.

Chrystal and Billy Wedding Friday 15th of July I had the pleasure of photographing Chrystal and BBs big day on Friday. it was fantastic to be part of it. The weather didn't turn out as we had hope though and it rain pretty much non stop all day so no outdoor photos for us. 

Since the weather was so bad we had an indoor set up for a while at the venue which was Hill of Beath Club and we still managed to get some gorgeous photos of the bride and groom and of course lots of their family members too.

Chrystal was surprised on her day with a horse and carriage to take her to the church. I braved the rain to get a photo of her inside, I love it with all rain and her framed perfectly in the carriage. 

unfortunately the local church doesn't allow flash or even movement of the photographer during ceremony but lucky we were permitted to take some photos during it, all in all the weather and the church rules didn't make it easy but we still managed to capture some fantastic memories of their day. wishing them all the best for the Future. 

You were all brilliant.

My own little Merida One thing that i LOVE about my job is how involved my family and kids can be. They are all in and out of my studio frequently and enjoy doing fun projects with me that gets all of our immaginations going. Alexis is 4 now and loves to dress up and role play so she asks to have photos taken regularly with her new costumes and accessories. 

I was excited when she got this Merida dress, mainly because she's my little ginger curly haired scottish merida so it was fitting for her. it's taken quite a while to put this all together as i had to get a bow that looked right to use and to source a horse of course. it all came together and here's the final result.

Huge thanks to Jacob the horse and of course his owners chrystal and skye for letting me photograph him for this. was worth all the hours to create. Alexis is keen to have this displayed in her bedroom.
