Carolyn Baxter’s Dresses

First fashion shoot of the year. Whoo. Collaborated with my sister, Carolyn, to photograph her new line of dresses. You can check out Carolyn’s work here.

 
 

Carolyn Baxter Bridal at Carlowrie Castle

Words can’t describe how proud I am of my sister. Carolyn is a dress designer, recently moving into the bridal industry and designing a range of 5 wedding dresses… all while raising a baby. My sister handmade these dresses from her shop in Broughton Street, Edinburgh.

Shooting in Carlowrie Castle last week was the first chance I had to see the dresses. Now, I’m not the most feminine of women—give me a pair of Nike leggings any day, but even I wanted to play dress up. Carolyn has done a beautiful job.

I’m so proud of my sister and envious of her talent. You can see the all of the dresses on Carolyn’s website.

 
 

Carolyn, The Dress Designer

My sister stopped by my apartment today, in between dropping one of her dresses off at a shoot with Rebecca Fox, and a massage I booked for her 30th birthday. We went for ice cream. Well, Carolyn did. I had just ran 8K so was behaving myself… for about 5 minutes.

 
 

Carolyn Baxter Dresses

Following on from my last post, I have finally finished editing the photos from the shoot at No.12 Picardy Place. Danielle is flawless to photograph, but I think the entire team who contributed to this shoot is due credit (MAU = Suzanne Craig, hair = Christina Frampton, dress design = Carolyn Baxter).

With the new year approaching, I have been thinking a lot about photography and how I feel about it. Every year I am picking up my camera less. I’ve become quite lazy. Lazy with how often I shoot and lazy with how I shoot. This needs to change.

 
 

Carolyn Couture Dresses at The Barras

If only we had longer to shoot, as this brief wander around The Barras turned out to be highly inspiring. Maybe it was Carolyn’s beautiful new dresses, or the model, Leigh, who photographed so nicely. It was a refreshing transition from the weddings I have been doing recently.

The colours, texture, dirt, grime, cigarette butts and Weegie patter. It all made my camera happy.

 
 

Couture By Carolyn at Saint Judes

Yesterday I got to spend my afternoon in Saint Judes, a boutique hotel on Bath Street. I can’t share most of the photos from yesterday as they are for a client, but afterwards my sister and I brought in a model and dressed her up in Carolyn’s dresses.

 
 

Couture by Carolyn at 12 Picardy Place

My sister, a dress designer, and I collaborated once again this weekend, this time in Edinburgh with what turned out to be a very stressful and frenzied shoot. Our model never turned up, and with only 20 minutes to spare we managed to land another girl who lived just 5 minutes from our venue. We were a little apprehensive, though, as we had no idea what the model looked like. Imagine my delight when a natural redhead arrived! I’ve always wanted to photograph a redhead.

 
 

Couture By Carolyn

You may have noticed by now, but my sister makes dresses. She often turns up at my flat in Glasgow (she’s from Edinburgh) and says “Hey, I have a model coming around in an hour. You have to shoot her.” and before I know it my flat is invaded by attractive women modelling Carolyn’s clothes, making me feel fat and crossing my fingers all my gear is charged. The shot below was one of those days.

 
 

Carolyn Interviews Tallia Storm

Yesterday my sister and I did a bit of coverage at charity event, The Only Way Is Glasgow. While Carolyn was stopping fashionable folk to interview she spotted Tallia Storm. And how could you miss her? She had vinyl stuck to her head and was very sparkly. This girl owned the place. She is only 12 years old.

This shoot was important to me. Partly because it was for my sister’s new line of dresses, and I’ve seen how hard she’s worked on them so wanted to do her justice, and also because I’ve been feeling really lost with photography lately. I wanted to use this as a chance to push myself, to not rely on methods I’ve grown to feel extremely comfortable with. That meant breaking out the flash.

Okay, let’s back up a minute and talk about my sister; a YouTube fashion guru and dress designer. Carolyn has been slaving over these designs for a while, and they’ll be going live on her shop over the next few weeks (I think, don’t quote me). This was the first time I’ve seen them, and I felt really proud. I have a talented sister.

Anyway, for me this brought back a lot of the excitement I have towards photography that was, for whatever reason, buried away recently. Maybe it was the location, the models, or the fact I was shooting something that important. I don’t know, who cares, I had fun. I love my camera.
