Portrait Session | Eden Locke, Edinburgh | Caoilfhionn


It’s been a dream of mine for a while to photograph some portraits in the beautiful foyer of George Street’s Eden Locke, so when Caoilfhionn got in touch with me to shoot some portraits in a relaxed setting in town, I knew exactly the place.

Caoilfhionn and I had so much fun shooting in this gorgeous foyer! The leafy green plants and mint-washed walls made for a beautiful backdrop. The original Georgian windows meant natural daylight drowned the room, so we took full advantage.

Interested in a portrait session with me? I’d love to hear from you! Send me a message here to get things started.

Portrait Session | Portobello | Shawna ("Exploring Edinburgh")

I very recently had the privilege of meeting the wonderful Shawna of Exploring Edinburgh, a blogger and Instagrammer I’ve followed and admired for some time. Shawna’s photography style captures Edinburgh (and beyond) so elegantly, celebrating it’s rich culture and heritage, not to mention array of cafés, restaurants and bookshops around the city.

Shawna kindly agreed to let me photograph her around Edinburgh’s picturesque Portobello for the afternoon. I was so excited as this is one of my favourite places to shoot people! Portobello is blessed with just over 2 miles of sandy dunes, making the ideal coastal backdrop; everything you need for those soft, dreamy portraits!

After fuelling ourselves with baked goods from local bakery, Twelve Triangles, we made our way to the promenade to begin the shoot. Below you’ll find a selection of images from the day.
