Enagagement photoshoot with Zoe Campbell

I'm warning you now, this isn't a majorly craft-filled post.  But I really wanted to share these here because, y'know, it's my blog and so what I says goes.  Haha!  There is a minor homemade element for the eagle-eyed among you, to be spotted in the photo below...

Andrew and I had an engagement photoshoot with the wonderful Zoe Campbell last week and honestly, I can't sing this dear lady's praises highly enough.  For two slightly awkward, hugely unphotogenic people, Zoe made the whole experience so relaxed and we're both so delighted with the results so far (we've only seen the sneak peeks!).  We took the dog to Longniddry Bents, one of our favourite places for dogwalking, thinking it would make a nice background for the photographs.  It was a cold, grey day but somehow Zoe managed to capture the beauty of the beach and landscape.  You can see all of the Edinburgh skyline from this side of the firth, as shown in one of my Instagram photos, it's one of my favourite views of Edinburgh.

Zoe was so relaxed about Badger, who was delighted for his first foray off-lead in 6 weeks since he had knee surgery and proceded to dick-punch everyone in sight.  He made it his life's mission to get his snout into Zoe's probably very expensive camera bag but she took it all in her stride.

Although I'm a lover of thrift and bargains, there are some things in life you just shouldn't scrimp on.  In the past this list for me has included sanitary products, mayonnaise and sewing thread but this list most def needs to include wedding photography.  We are going to look back on these photos for years to come, when we're old and saggy and the dog wears reading spectacles and reminisce over what beautiful people we were in our youf.  Because we are all beautiful people, despite our wrinkles and cellulite and dick-punching tendancies.  And clever people like Zoe know how to capture that on film for generations to come.  I honestly can't wait to see the wedding photos now.

P.S. The eagle eyed among you will have noticed the Transformer gloves (still in use after 3 years, though they needed some serious darning at the start of this winter season!).  The flowery top I was wearing will be the subject of a future post as I won it in a giveaway from the lovely Handmade Jane and it has spawned it's own knitwear giveaway, to be announced in the not-too-distant future.  Watch this space...
