Carolyn Visits

Carolyn, my sister, is letting her flat out during the Fringe festival, so she’s house hopping for the next month and will be through in Glasgow for a chunk of it. Everybody knows I like my own space (I’ve lived on my own for 7 years), so I find it really difficult having people in my home for lengthy periods of time. Further to that, we both work from home so have been in one another’s company allll day. Agh! Anyway, the nice thing about having my sister here is we can go for lunch and talk about business and I can take photos of her pretty face. So it ain’t all bad.

 
 

It’s Your Third Birthday!

My nephew, Blake, turned 3 on the 28th of May. I got up at 5AM to get a flight home from Amsterdam to surprise him for his birthday. In the run up to his birthday, he kept FaceTiming me and asking if I was coming to his party. The guilt was too much so I happily changed my flight to an earlier one.

Blake had a party at his house with all of his friends. There was a bouncy castle that I perhaps spent too much time on (wow, what a workout). The sun came out for his birthday and I think it was a success. Well done to my sister, Carolyn, for planning it all.

Here’s the first picture

 
 

Bread Street Brasserie

Carolyn and I love food. We also love a good deal. Luckily 5pm had our back with their festival dining deal during the Edinburgh Fringe. We had a 3-course meal at Bread Street Brasserie with a glass of bubbly on arrival, 2 glasses of wine and coffee for £40.

5pm is running a lot of deals during the Edinburgh Fringe, so be sure to check them out. We left very happy and very full!

 
 

My Talented Sister

I won’t say much. I’ll let the photos do the talking. Suffice to say I’m proud of my sister, Carolyn Baxter, and the work that’s went into creating this line of bridesmaid dresses. Having such a talented sister inspires me.

It’s great when we get to collaborate on projects. My sister designing and making the dresses, and myself photographing them. I can’t wait to see what else she creates.

 
 

Blake’s First Christmas

It’s exciting having a baby in the family at this time of the year. It’s my nephew’s first Christmas, and it just so happens I’m hosting the celebrations at my house this year.

We’re waving good bye to our tradition of spending Christmas at my mother’s house in Inverkip. It works better for everyone being at mine in Glasgow. My Gran is ill and can no longer get up and down stairs (my building has an elevator) and Carolyn is splitting time between her fiance’s family in Edinburgh and our family in Glasgow.

At first I was feeling daunted, but now I’m looking forward to welcoming everyone with a mulled wine.

 
 

Casa Morada

“Casa Morada is the culmination of a personal and professional dream of Eva Serrano, a Spanish Interior Designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland…” Eva gave us free roam of her beautiful interiors shop last month, the perfect location to photograph my sister’s dresses. I am noticing many more flaws with my photos these days, which is a good thing, although I wish I could catch these flaws before it comes to looking at my photos on a big screen. This is all part of learning process, I guess. Regardless, beautiful models, stunning location and glamorous dresses.

Danielle at No.12 Picardy Place

Last weekend, I ventured through to Edinburgh’s boutique hotel, No.12 Picardy Place, to shoot a few dresses from my sister’s new line. My sister works harder than anyone I know, I don’t know where she finds the time to design and launch new dresses. As always, I’m very proud of her and the work she does.

More photos to follow, but I’m super busy with my big girl’s job.

 
 

Danielle In The Junkyard

My sister, Carolyn, has been telling me for some time about a junkyard on the outskirts of Edinburgh. When Suzanne and Christina contacted me to do a shoot for their portfolio – Suzanne being a make-up artist and Christina specialising in vintage hair – the junkyard gave us the go-ahead to shoot there. Cue lots of strange looks from people scavenging for a bargain.

With us being in a junkyard, I was able to utilise my (very random) surroundings to enhance the photos. For example, I held a weed up to the camera to produce the yellow blur on a couple of the shots, and found a grungy window to shoot through, which gives a nice, softened effect. And then I washed my hands.

And of course, with my sister being a dress designer, we had Danielle wear Carolyn’s evening gowns… and swimming costume. All of which are in stock in my sister’s shop.

A fun shoot with a great team. Hopefully we get to collaborate again soon.

 
 

RailsBridge

This weekend was fun. I headed to Edinburgh for RailsBridge, an organisation working to increase diversity in tech. There was a turnout of about 20-30 female programmers in TechCube, and – for me personally – it was great to work on an app and have an experienced programmer (teacher) I could ask questions to as I progressed.

I spent the weekend at my sister’s shop, which is next door to Casa Angelina – a vintage tearoom. It’s fairly new yet seems to have gained popularity with its afternoon tea. We didn’t quite stretch to afternoon tea, but the soup and cake I did have was very tasty.

 
 

Dain Scottish ‘Hings

My friends I stayed with in Brooklyn, New York are in Scotland for a few days, so we visited Edinburgh to do a fraction of sightseeing. The tables have turned as I was a tourist in New York when visiting Dustin and Margaret, and now Dustin is a tourist in Scotland (Mags grew up here. We went to primary school together).

Although spending most of the day in Edinburgh, we really didn’t accomplish much other than a pub meal at the Grassmarket, a visit to my sister’s boutique, and coffee at Fredericks. Still, it was nice to see them before they fly across the Atlantic. We’ve talked about spending a bit of summer in Minnesota, where Dustin is from. I hope that happens.
