Blake The Toddler

I can’t believe how big my nephew is getting! He’s definitely not a baby anymore. We’ve have such a good bond. My sister says he never stops saying my name, “Auntie Ashley”. That’s because I’m a fun Auntie.

We visited my Gran as it was her 85th birthday but she was unwell. It’s really sad to see her health deteriorating, but Blake put a smile on her face.

I asked Blake what book he was reading. He has odd taste for a toddler…

 
 

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 Birthday Party

It was Blake’s birthday last month. I can’t believe my nephew is 2 years old. He’s turned into a little chatterbox and I adore having him in my life, reading him books and being silly with him.

His 2nd birthday was the perfect excuse to go to soft play. As a 30 year old woman, I couldn’t resist taking off my shoes and diving about the ball pit with a bunch of toddlers.

 
 

Cheeky Face

It’s been a while since I’ve shared Blake’s cheeky face. He’s growing up fast and my sister is doing a wonderful job of being a mother. He’s definitely hitting the terrible twos!

 
 

Easter Egg Hunt

Having a nephew is fun. I planned an Easter Egg hunt for Blake at my Gran’s house.

Even though the kid can’t yet talk, he understood the premise perfectly. The face smeared with chocolate is evidence he enjoyed it.

 
 

Merry Christmas

This Christmas was exciting. My nephew is old enough to now interact with his presents. He loved unwrapping and exploring them. He was especially enamoured with his Thomas the Tank Engine bubble machine. LOOK AT THAT FACE.

 
 

Holiday Snaps From Berlin

Visited Berlin to speak at Hybrid Conf. Took my sister. Amazing city. One of my favourites, I think. Would love to go back. Bye.

 
 

Happy Birthday, Blake

I can’t believe it’s been a year since Blake, my nephew, was born. For his 1st birthday we took him to Edinburgh Zoo. He looked inquisitively at the animals, crying when they’d get too close. I love this little boy so much. 11 days until we go to Florida on a family holiday…

 
 

Special People

On Thursday I bought a lens. The first lens I’ve bought in 4 years! I now own Canon’s L series 24mm ƒ1.4. I don’t normally like wide lenses, but I find ’em handy for weddings and I’m way too comfortable with the 50mm.

I took a couple of test shots at my gran’s house, which turned out to be quite special as I caught her happily interacting with my nephew, Blake, after being upset about her ill health. I love my family.
