Karen and Bretts Wedding


Karen and Brett got married on June 7th, just a few weeks back.

The ceremony and reception was held at Karen's parent's beautiful home in Pleasanton, CA.

The theme was vintage and Karen did an amazing job making all the fun details that make a wedding unique. I LOVE LOVE details :)

Karen was an stunning Bride and Brett a very handsome groom. With 5 amazing kids too, who were a lot of fun to hang out with.

It was an absolute pleasure being asked to photograph their Big Day, not only did I get to capture this amazing celebration, I gained new friends too.

Congratulations Guys....xo


















Absolutely loving this interesting set of lips that appeared on the negative!! Appropriate I thought, this was all captured in camera, no photoshopping was involved here! If anyone can explain?! :D

8mm Film

video

I was going through the archives today and came across some 8mm film, my husband and I took not that long ago on a trip to Miami.

It was so nice to rewatch, photographing weddings and witnessing families coming together, it reminded me of the importance of love, family & friends.

Our entire family is back in Scotland, we try to get home as much as possible and we miss them all dearly :(

Film is also a fun and creative way to document special occasions in your life. Our trip to Miami was a collaboration of taking a break and meeting my parents and their friends half way and enjoy each others company.

My parents have many an 8mm movie in the loft documenting the special moments in their life, their courtship, our births, first birthdays and parties. Which I got a hold of last year from my dad and put together on a DVD for their 40th Wedding Anniversary. It really is a great and unique way to document important days of your life or just for fun. It was an emotional moment watching the anniversary DVD and my parents were thrilled with their special gift after not seeing the footage for 20 odd years.

I'm still trying to find the files from their anniversary combination, its such a cool visit back in time. Ill post and share when I find them :D Scotland in the sixties and seventies, its pretty sweet footage. Watch this space :)

Baby Liam


I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Little Mister Liam last week.

Liam is 6 1/2 months old and a super chilled little guy.
We had lots of fun together and he didnt cry once!!!

Proud mommy Heather and I of course danced around like idiots to entertain him. Parent participation is mandatory lol.

If you were in the Golden Gate Park enjoying the weather last Thursday and witnessed two crazy gals doing the monkey dance that would be us :)

Here are some super cute shots of Mister Liam.
