Behind the scenes of a Blue Sky Photography fashion shoot


As you’ll guess, fashion shoots like this take coordination, planning and effort – but I totally believe that you get out what you put in. Take a look behind the scenes at our Restoration Yard fashion shoot.

Secret Proposal

Engagement Shoots

Photographing a proposal is always nerve-racking as you are completely focused on the moment. It’s a big deal, and trust me when I say I hold my breath too for that moment when the question lands and the dawn of realisation hits. It’s always so emotional and so unbelievably special.

Grief is Real


I used to think grief was simply to do with death. It’s not; it’s to do with loss. And loss is so often hard to articulate. Just now we’re all grieving, personally as well as collectively, for so much lost stuff.

Wilbur & Family


Meet Wilbur… and his family. If you’ve ever met a labradoodle puppy like Wilbur, the chances are you’ll have been more than a little smitten. I certainly was.

Sister Sister


We love it when our families tell us how easy they found their photoshoot. As it should be; whether you’re planning for a full family group, or simply some updated photographs of the kids, our aim is to make the experience relaxed and natural, while capturing some fab images.

Celebrating Easter with brilliant product photography


I know that we’ll soon be back shooting again in the studio; welcoming families, newborns and babies into our midst. I know that wedding celebrations will be that little bit more special. And I know that I’ll be shooting more products crated with passion, creativity and love from our tribe of business owners. I just don’t know when.

Master Photographers Association Scottish Commercial Photographer of the year 2020


This week I was delighted this week to learn that I’d been awarded the Master Photographers Association Scottish Region Commercial and Industrial Photographer for 2020 (an award that I’ve also won before in 2018, 2017 and 2016 so it makes it extra special)

The Perfect Day

You were not expecting such amazing sun (in March!). You were not planning an outdoor ceremony in the glorious playground. You were not planning an intimate dinner with your closest family and friends. And yet you had the most perfect celebration. We salute you and love both you and your wonderful attitudeIf the days leading up to you wedding were so fluid (for want of a better word!) and you’ve managed to navigate this so skilfully, we know that your marriage and all that lies ahead of you will be the perfect marriage.

Patience is Learnt


I’ve had to learn patience over the last few months in a whole new way. There’s been nothing else for it. And I’ve also had to learn that not all of the juggling was necessarily a good thing. I might have thought it was, and even slightly prided myself on it, but now looking back I’m not sure that pride was justified.

Why? Because juggling requires constant motion and it doesn’t build in enough time for rest or slowing down.
