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.




This last week or so, I have barely picked up my camera.  The light has been poor, the weather wild and wintry. Added to that I have been back out to work visiting customers and organising bookings for the term ahead.

I took these images of Mary on the morning that her son was getting married….a kind of Mother of the Groom shoot.  I made a conscious decision at the end of last year not to undertake any more wedding commissions. If I’m being honest – I don’t enjoy taking wedding photos, plus I have a full time photography job through the week – I don’t want to spend my weekends stressing that I have all the correct shots for the bride and editing.  I want to spend them doing things I love (which very much includes photography!!!) but producing images I want to produce.

It’s not the first time I have photographed Mary and it’s certainly not the last, which I’m really pleased  about.  She has the most amazing smile, eyes and above all I love her infectious positive outlook.
