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.

 
 

My Nephew, Blake

Words can’t express my love for this little boy.

 
 

Gran’s 83rd Birthday

My Gran had a bad fall. We were all set to head to Mar Hall for afternoon tea (my favourite place for cake, coffee and sandwiches!), but at 83 the fall badly impacted her back. As a result, we celebrated my Gran’s 83rd birthday from her house.

There was still cake. Chocolate. And I got to see my nephew, Blake. Any day that involves chocolate cake and my nephew is a good day. Happy birthday, Gran.

 
 

Baby Blake

Once a week I will drive through to Edinburgh to spend the day with my nephew, Blake. Yesterday we visited Craigmillar Castle, Blake’s first history trip! Doesn’t he look happy?

 
 

Family

Yesterday, I visited the seaside town of South Queensferry for the first time. It’s a quaint village on the outskirts of Edinburgh, populated with ice cream parlours and colourful houses.

My family met for lunch to celebrate my Dad’s 10 year anniversary. Maybe ‘celebrate’ is the wrong word, but I think we’re all glad it was a decade ago and the feelings of grief have left us, and so many positive changes have happened since then.

I feel GOOD, guys.

 
 

Family Trip To Paris

I finally made it to Paris, taking my mother and sister along with me. The crepes were tasty. The Eiffel Tower was impactful. The men are handsome, but they smoke. We walked 8-10 miles every day. I got to use Uber for the first time. People taking selfies at the Eiffel Tower made me laugh. I saw the hotel my dad took my mum to when she was 21. Jack Russells are popular in Paris. I’d like to go back.

 
 

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.

 
 

My Sister’s Engaged

My sister’s fiancé, who is a footballer, was meeting with a Glasgow agent about football ‘hings, so it was the perfect opportunity for my sister to stop by the studio and chat about wedding ‘hings. I attend weddings all the time as a photographer, but I can’t wait to be a part of my sister’s wedding. To celebrate their relationship. To dance. To relax. It isn’t for a while yet, but my photographer perspective has already rubbed off on my sister, who has been sending me potential venues based on natural light (yes!).

 
 

Merry Christmas

I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas from Inverkip, Scotland. I’m spending Christmas with my family at my Mum’s house. I popped online to share this photo and updated some WordPress plugins while I was at it, consequently breaking my whole site. Bear with my while I attempt to fumble around with PHP. But, yeah, have a great Christmas!
