Kirsten & Doug's Engagement Session: Sugar Sheds, Greenock

It's been a while since I did a shoot down at the Sugar Sheds, but my oh my, what a building. So many gorgeous colours and textures to shoot against, love it love it love it! And believe it or not, the weather was absolutely horrendous with heavy rain and wild winds sweeping through. Kirsten and Doug were freezing but braved the elements regardless.

See a full slideshow from their engagement session below including lots more images.

Lorna & Richard, Tontine Hotel, Greenock

I'm kicking off my 'wedding sneak peek' series today where I'll post up some preview images from my latest weddings right here on the blog for you to enjoy. Of course, if you follow me over on Facebook and Instagram, you'll also see the sneak peek images there. Enjoy!

So today I'm starting with Lorna and Richard who were married at St John's Church in Gourock. We then went to the Mariner's Home for some pictures and on to the Tontine Hotel in Greenock for their reception.

Lifestyle Family Shoot: Harvey & Family, Greenock, Scotland

Having one grandchild in any family is a very special time as was the case with Harvey. Everybody dotes on him, lots of fun is always had with him and all involved are left wondering what on earth did they do before he came along.

I loved my time with Harvey and co and simply watched them all play together. So many smiles and a great opportunity to bring family members together. Harvey was the centre of attention as I’m sure he always is. It was great to float about capturing them playing and laughing. We spent some time indoors and then ventured out into the garden.

Here is a selection of what I captured that day, enjoy!

Gayle & Rob's Engagement Shoot at The Sugar Sheds

This shoot seems so long ago now given that Gayle and Rob are now married! But what a perfect place for it given that Rob works just across from the Sugar Sheds in Greenock. I love this place so much as having grown up in Liverpool, it's a building not too dissimilar from those in my  home town and with a similar history too. Its rustic brick walls reveal lovely colours and the huge cast iron doors make a fantastic backdrop.

I had so much fun with Gayle, Rob and their son Robbie. How glad was I that Robbie came along as he showed his mum and dad how to pose and was constantly telling them what to do! His cheeky smile filled my camera with some fab images and just made me realise how much I love what I do.

Here's some of those images for you to enjoy. Watch this space for their wedding which will be featured here very soon.

Afternoon Tea at Three Sisters Bake

A bit of a blast from the past in that I did an afternoon tea shoot at Three Sisters Bake last year, but worthy of resurrecting it especially for the blog and therefore your enjoyment. But it does come with a warning, you may have the sudden urge to lick your screen and/or you may find yourself drooling uncontrollably for which I take no responsibility!

I was so pleased when the sisters asked me along to photograph their afternoon tea offering. Having worked with them a few times prior, I knew this would be a difficult undertaking. Seriously, you try spending lots of time pointing a camera really close up to mouth-watering delights and resisting the urge to eat it all! But hey, I thoroughly enjoyed it and loved their offering for kids, can't recommend it enough that you pop along to one of their cafes which you can find in Quarriers Village or Killearn. Enjoy!
