Getting the hang of this photography malarky

I've been super busy recently and a little bit ill so not had much time to model, instead I've been spending time with my camera before my bookings get hectic over the next six weeks or so.

I was babysitting my two week old nephew Lewis yesterday and managed to get this shot while he was sleeping. I've not shown his mum yet as I'm making an album in secret for her with memories of her little boy so when he gets bigger she has these to look at. He's such a content little man just now, quite happy to lie and sleep - I wonder how long this will last?

I'm modeling quite a bit over the next six weeks, trying to fit in as much as possible before my wedding in June. After that I'll be taking a little time off to enjoy being a newlywed and will return to shooting late July. I will however still be taking bookings throughout June/July and still be active on forums etc so don't hesitate to get in touch.
Lots of love,

Recently I shot with Gazhilla as a swap for a camera of his, a lovely Canon EOS 30D. I love it, it's my little baby...all be it a heavy baby at that! I've wanted to pick up a "real" camera for years and finally got my chance.

I've had a few technical gliches with it but mostly I've managed pretty well. I'm out at least three times a week with it at the moment, just shooting everything I can get my hands on until I'm comfortable with it and can get some yummy images! I've been using Cody my big border collie as a model..he loves camera's and regularly appears at my shoots expecting his photo to be taken. I remember one time he sat in front of a photographer and smiled, not moving until he got his photo taken...he's so like me! ha ha.

Anyway, here's a couple of shots I got of Cody the other weekend. I'm just practicing remember, and all very new to this, but I like them. My little man looks so handsome!

That's all for now guys, I'll upload some more of my images as I shoot them, as well as images from my modeling. Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine, Scotland is awesome at the moment.

Much love,
