Our friend Douglas Thomson is a Landrover fan through and through. He had this idea about 5 years ago, to build a Landrover Defender from scratch. He has been collecting parts ever since, and started building his “baby” about a year ago.

He took Pegasus to his maiden voyage today in the fields where the Scottish Landrover Owners Club met for a day of muddy fun. What a GORGEOUS V8! You should hear the sound of it!!!

Jacky and Steven are getting married soon at Harburn House, West Calder. I have known Jacky for a while, through previous web design work, and now she was looking for a photographer for her wedding. Jacky and Steven have opted for a CD only wedding photography package, as they are emigrating soon and don’t want to carry a heavy wedding album abroad.

We met Jacky and Steven at Almondell Country Park, near Broxburn to get to know Steven too, and to take some lovely photographs of the two, before their wedding later in April.

Even though it was a grey and cold day, we met this lovely family in a nearby park and took some amazing photographs of the family. All sorts of different group photographs were requested for the grand parents, for the individual families. I always try to remember the names of everyone in the photograph, and if I don’t write them down immediately, my brain doesn’t keep them…

Little Lewis was the one with short straw! He had to be in almost ALL the photographs and was very tired at the end of it! But some gorgeous portraits of him on his own lifted his spirits again.

I am always asked what clothes to wear for a family portrait. The worst thing you can do is to “encourage” your teenage children or even younger kids to wear something “smart”, such as a shirt, or a proper jacket. They will feel awkward and not happy with their appearance. I always recommend that the kids select their own clothes, to show their character and the stage of the live they are at. They will feel “cool” and happy which then results in amazing, natural photographs. Don’t dress up, or down for photographs, just wear what you like best – this is important for any age:-)

After both Claudia and Marika stopped their walk in Burgos, I was left on my own to find my way to Santiago last Summer:-)Pretty quickly I made new friends with a group of Germans, and particularly Lotta and I spent a lot of time together. It was Lotta, Jochen and I who walked into Santiago together on the 11 September 2011. I meant to visit Lotta in Bremen, Germany, and we were just settling into a lovely girly chat in a cafe when someone held his hands over my eyes… Lotta secretly invited Jochen to join us! Jochen had driven some 5 hours from Bavaria to come and see us in Bremen! What an amazing surprise! We had a great evening together, I introduced Lotta to my favourite food: THAI. She had never had this before and loved it instantly.

Of course I had to seize the opportunity to take some photos of Lotta and Jochen in Bremen:-)

In February, I visited a few friends I made on the Camino, in Spain, last year. Marika and I spent the first 2 weeks together, walking through the Spanish countryside. Marika started one day after me in St Jean Pied de Port, France, and walked for 2 weeks to Burgos in Spain. It was nice to see Marika after such a long time, and Claudia too (!!), even though it was strange to see each other in “normal” clothes for the first time. I had the chance to take some photos of Marika and her son Niklas.

I cannot wait for Marika to come here and see me in Scotland:-)

Since October 2010, we have had a new addition to our family: little kitten Tia! We got Tia from the Cat Rescue West Lothian. She is a gorgeous little kitten and looks very much like our big boy, Miezer.

It only took the 2 cats 24 hours to bond, they are now bestest pals (most of the time, anyway!). Tia is very vocal and purrs a lot, wheras Miezer is very quiet and only purrs when sitting on his comfy blanket!

I have been dreading this moment – letting Tia go outside… She was spayed last week and didn’t talk to me for best part of 5 days! But now she is back to her old self and cannot wait to discover the big wide, erm, back garden!

Here are a few pictures from the last few months from our two moggies:-)

In February, I met Christopher and Danielle at the Vu where their wedding will be held in May this year. It was a very foggy day which resulted in some mystic photographs. They are a lovely couple and I cannot wait for their wedding!!
