The shoes on the left were nice and clean and when I set off for Glasgow on Sunday morning.  Intriguing start to a story eh?  not really.

I was unprepared.  I knew we were going to Linn Park to do Laurie and David’s pre-wed shoot but did it occur to me that a park in Glasgow in winter might be muddy?  However I battled on through the mud and had a really enjoyable stroll, jump, wade, slip and slide with L&D and their Whippet pup Murry.

So, do you see the lengths I am prepared to go to to keep my clients happy.  Sometimes I surprise myself.

Oh, and the French title is in honour of Laurie who is from south west France and is in Scotland teaching French in high school.


But one pre wed shoot a day isn’t enough for me, oh no.  I rushed into town to meet Jennifer and Alan for their pre-wed shoot which started at Rottenrow Gardens.



The shoes on the right are the ones I bought as I had two meetings with potential new clients also booked for Saturday and there was no way I could turn up with those manky ones.   Struggled to get Cons in any any colour other than black, even looked at girls ones but they only went up to size seven and I’m a nine.  So got the rather spiffy pair of old school Pumas.


This weekend see the first  “planned ” wedding of the year.  It’s pretty much full steam ahead right through until September.  So, there will either be lots of nice pretty pictures on here or there will nothing posted until October cause I’m too busy.  Here’s hoping it’s the former.

Sunday was a busy day with a bridal meeting and a family lifestyle shoot all before lunchtime.  Happy to say both went well, Abeda, the lovely bride booked us for her wedding next year and I had a great time in the morning shooting the Baillies in the shadow of the Forth Bridge. 

Luke and little brother Sam proved to be excellent models, even if they were more interested in treasure hunting.  Sam took a wee tumble and ended up with a bit of a bump on the head but nothing that a cuddle from dad and a spot of photoshopping by me couldn’t sort out.




One of the best things about being a lifestyle photographer is that you are mostly with people who are having a good time. Whether it be a wedding,  birthday party, reunion or just a family portrait session, the folk involved are usually there because they want to be and are happy.

Today for example I covered a big family party in the evening with a very happy granny having all her kids and grand-kids around her. 

In the afternoon I had the pleasure of spending  a short while in the company of an adorable little lady and her parents for a quick kiddy shoot.  What made it even better was that I got to play on the jungle gym.  The little lady in question was Samara, and what an absolute cutie she is.






Just back from Leith where I was shooting aspiring young male model Joel Mcdiarmid. Good fun and the weather stayed ok. Backing up the images so hopefully we will have some nice stuff to upload soon.
