Once upon a time...

"Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering. " - The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss.

These two love birds' expressions in this photo reminds me of this quote.

Carmen & Lisa: photo jam session

A few Sundays ago, I spent a couple of hours with fellow photographers Lisa at Lavish & Light Photography and Carmen Ferrell, hanging out and taking some photos.  

I met both ladies at our Tara Mcmullen Wedding & Event workshop in April. We decided to get together in the summer, when the days are longer and the light is better, and take some photos for one another. 

It was great fun to hang out and take photos with fellow photographers, I think we all learned something from being in front of the camera for once :) 

Thanks ladies! 

Here are some of my favourite photos. Enjoy! xo

Travelogue: Edinburgh

When I traveled to Scotland in May with M, I had an inkling that I would fall in love with the Scottish Highlands. After all, I've seen so many wonderful photos. But I had no idea that I would like Edinburgh so much. Emerging from the Waverley train station, we were immediately greeted by views of the Royal Mile. I thought, wow we are walking straight into history. The entire city seems to have been built with the exact same kind of stone, the kind that yellows a bit with age. There's something about old cities that I just love, I like knowing that the city did not tear something down just because it was over 50 years old.

Edinburgh felt like a city that aged well, and proudly! There was not a single sky scraper in sight. Throughout the few days we were there, it drizzled and sprinkled the kind of rain that Scotland seems to specialize in when it isn't pouring :) The sun made rare appearances. Because of that, afternoon cream tea stops felt especially lovely. 

Below is one of my favourite photos from the city, a look down a typical "close" off of the Royal Mile, which is a narrow alley. 
If you haven't been, plan a visit now. Please?
