A quick off the cuff shoot with the beautiful Rachael, whilst we were checking out this part- restored church for a forthcoming event in Glasgow. I love the fact we hadn’t planned it, yet she looks so together – complete with matching lipstick and nails. The day was overcast but still the light fell magically.
The past few weeks have been silly busy with my full time photography job. I am literally in bed at nine thirty most evenings. No fun. Bags under eyes and as David keeps pointing out – I looked like a washed out rag. Selling it to you eh? Daily yoga has gone by the wayside and chocolate has come out in full force (four Easter eggs down – that didn’t belong to me).
I have quite a few shoots lined up for the Easter holidays and hope to be experimenting with a bit of analogue photography as well, with my (new to me) Olympus OM 1 – birthday present, Mothers Day and Valentines all rolled into one.
Whilst cataloguing some of my images – I took another look at profiles, reworked them a little in VSCO (also new to me).
All images taken on Olympus OMD EM1 with either a 25mm lens or 12-40mm lens.

A couple of my favourite images taken this past few days. Taken on Olympus OM-D EM1.
Tulips in my living room – finished but better than fresh. Decay always seems better with nature.
My new Mac lipstick. A little high maintenance for me. It means I actually have to check my appearance from time to time. Image taken in the loos of Flatplanet, Soho.
Nicholas Kirkwood shoes – not mine. Too big, too expensive for my budget. But lovely all the same.
Pinkston Watersports – Glasgow. Early one Sunday morning, out of focus but I prefer it.
I wanted to show you a few of my favourite images from this week’s shoot in Edinburgh. Aghogho and I work well together. We met about a year ago and quickly fell into a pattern. She rocks up with her suitcase overflowing with outfits, I choose the locations. She changes in toilets, changing rooms and sometimes alleyways. I grab tea and wait patiently. We try to avoid lingering in shops so not to make purchases. We make it up as we go along. Along the way we’ve become friends. Natural beauty and natural lights.

Looking back at some of my images, I see patterns. One of them is shooting incorporating reflections or mirrors. Why that is …….I have no idea. Some of the shots have been set up and some have just been observed. Does anyone else see patterns in their work?

Here in Scotland it is frosty with a capital F. Mia was keen to wear her new headgear, which I’ve aptly named “The Muffler” and was willing to have some shots taken. A win-win all round.
We are so fortunate to have this country park literally on our doorstep. It was quiet this morning – only the odd dog walker, so we almost had the place to ourselves. Cold set in quick, Mia’s nose was starting to go red (not being one for photoshop or a moaning teenager) – we headed home after 20 minutes or so.
