Ayden at Bellahouston Park

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I met this girl. We’ve managed to get pretty close over that year, and I’d now consider Ayden a good friend. She knows my secrets. She also lets me turn a casual hot chocolate and stroll in the park into some kind of photoshoot, because, admittedly, it has been a while since I’ve really shot for myself. I want to get back into it, and this impromptu session reminded me just how much I love having my camera by my side.

 
 

Kelvingrove Cafe Cocktails

Joanna and I met for lunch and cocktails at Kelvingrove Cafe, a fairly new addition to Argyll Street. There seem to be many new places popping up along Argyll Street, which is good for me as I live so close and like to eat. Anyway, back to Joanna…

Jo set up Toad’s Caravan – a collaborative work space in Ruthven Lane – which is where I now work and how we met. She’s talented, ambitious and very hard working – my kind of woman! It was fun to chat over our cocktails, which were served alongside a plate of sliders. I had a mac and cheese slider, which was kind of weird, but definitely in a good way.

 
 

Ben Susskind

This is Ben. He sits near me in Toad’s Caravan. He looks like the werewolf on his t-shirt. My biggest fear as a child was werewolves and I’d often have nightmares about them, but Ben doesn’t scare me.

 
 

Tchai-Ovna

After attending Young Rewired State, I met Mark Young – part of the GatherContent team – who spoke about marketing within a start-up. This interested me hugely as I’ve just built my first app (and rolled out the beta to select individuals). I badgered him into meeting me for a tea to talk some more. This was my first Tchai-Ovna experience, although we gave the shishas a miss, and I have to admit it was… weird. Not bad weird. Just weird.

 
 

These Little Kings

My friends are insanely handsome and I love them. Thanks for being in my life, boys!

 
 

Scott

This is the guy who got me lifting weights. Over two years ago, when I first joined the gym, Scott gave me a gentle nudge towards the weights as I was solely doing cardio. Like most women, I was a bit apprehensive as I thought I would bulk up. Two years on I can squat while lifting Scott above my head, as well as bench press him.

Maybe that last sentence isn’t true.

 
 

Photo Blogs That Inspired Me To Get Into Photography

I decided to revisit some of the blogs that inspired me to get into photography. I had some Twitter followers ask if I’d share them, so what follows is a list of the photographers I frequented when I first starting shooting. Maybe they’ll inspire you, too?

Navis Photography: Tim nails both landscape and portrait photography. Tell me how you do it, Tim. How I Met Your Style: Incredible fashion blog. Justin and Mary: A husband and wife, wedding photography duo. Keaton Andrew: Music photographer. No longer updated, but still a healthy archive to browse. Vow To Remember: More wedding photography. Ben Haisch: Senior portraits and weddings. I love his stuff. Nick Onken: Fashion.…
 
 

Chicken Soup

A low-key evening, spent watching the tennis and a Korean horror movie at Ryan’s house in Govan. I decided to take it easy tonight as I’m shooting a wedding tomorrow, and fortunately the Korean horror movie wasn’t scary enough for me to lose any sleep over. Ryan’s face is scary, though.

 
 

Strachur

If you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you may remember Mags’ face. I stayed with Mags when I visited New York in September of last year. We grew up together, so when she touched down in Scotland for only a few days, I sped through to Strachur despite already having driven 440 miles and being sick of sitting behind the wheel. Even though my wheel is awesome.

Mags has invited me back to New York. I’m thinking of spending a few days there, then hopping over to San Francisco. OH MAN.

 
 

Leeds

Leeds is a city I knew nothing about. Needing to escape for a couple of days, my friend – Harry – spent 48 hours introducing me to its array of indie coffee shops, great restaurants, and getting me into beer (albeit fruity, cherry flavoured beer) and gin. Not a particularly healthy few days, which is why I spent some money I’d earned on a Jawbone Up (already hit my 10,000 steps by 10am today. YALDI).

My favourite spots in Leeds;
