Anna Moffat Edinburgh Newborn Baby Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    I am an Edinburgh based photographer specialising in newborns, babies and children. I have always had an interest in photography but my passion really started growing after becoming a mother. I have two beautiful boys and there is nothing I love more than taking a photo which really captures their personalities. All parents are acutely aware of how quickly their wee ones change and I absolutely love taking photos for my clients which I hope will be looked back on for years to come.

    If you would like to have a chat about arranging a photo shoot either in my home studio or in your own home then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Edinburgh Baby Photography in your own Home

Edinburgh Baby Photography in your Home

I love travelling around Edinburgh to do baby photography sessions at home. It’s a completely different experience to going to a studio – there’s no rushing around, all of your own things are at hand and you and your family can totally relax. One of the nicest things about sessions with babies and wee ones at home is that I can capture some of the day to day normality – feeding, burping, playing, cuddles etc – there is so much beauty in the everyday but we are often just too busy getting on with it to have time to properly capture these precious little moments. I also bring my mobile ‘studio’ with a  variety of soft backdrops and blankets – nothing too ‘busy’ that may take away from the main focus of the pictures – your beautiful baby.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch on anna@annamoffat.com if you would like any more information about booking a baby photography session in your home. I work in and around Edinburgh.

The Archer Family

I have known this lovely family for a long time so this shoot was very special for me. Lynsey and Chris, it was great catching up and I hope you like this selection of photos from the session. Congratulations again on the newest addition to your beautiful family. Alfie is just perfect and he is so lucky to have wonderful Isla for a big sister.

Edinburgh Outdoor Family Photography

Edinburgh Outdoor Family Photography

I really love outdoor family photo shoots and there are so many great locations in and around Edinburgh which are ideal  – Arthur’s Seat, The Botanics and Portobello Beach are just a few. Taking photos of kids outdoors allows me to capture them at their best – running around, having fun, free.  There’s no ‘sit still’ or ‘say cheese’ and the resulting photos are un-staged and very natural. An outdoor shoot with me is a good excuse (as if you need one…) to spend quality time with your family, something which we can all find difficult to do as often as we’d like.

These photos are of my own family taken on a sledging trip to the Pentlands. There was a lot of nonsense and a lot of laughter, just as it should be.

Portobello Family Photographer – Murray Family.

This was a very special shoot for me because the first time I met this lovely family was for Annabel’s newborn shoot when she was just a few weeks old. We’ve done a number of shoots since then, become friends, and now Annabel is a big sister to amazing wee Rory who looks exactly like she did as a baby.

The shoot took place in Emma and Richard’s beautiful home in Joppa, Edinburgh. One of the biggest benefits of having a shoot at home is that you can totally relax in your own space and bigger brothers and sisters can play with their own toys. I also love getting a mix of studio style and candid shots.

Here are just a few of my favourite shots from the session.

I love this one of Annabel. She’s so full of fun, we had a great time playing and taking some natural shots while her wee brother had a break for a cuddle and a feed.portobello family photographyPlease don’t hesitate to get in touch on anna@annamoffat.com if you would like to discuss having a shoot in your own home.

Baby Photography at Home, Tranent: Riva’s Shoot

Riva’s Shoot

It was such a pleasure to meet beautiful Riva and her lovely family in their home in Tranent. Riva is a wee honey – she is so smiley and content and I couldn’t believe my luck when she took a wee nap too! I love getting a mix of wide awake and sleepy shots during a baby shoot.

Jilly and Drew, thanks so much for making me so welcome in your home. I loved meeting you, Riva and Sonny (couldn’t resist taking his photo too!) I hope you enjoyed your baby photography at home session as much as I did.

Baker Family

I loved meeting the wonderful Baker family in their home in Portobello, Edinburgh. We had loads of fun doing some studio shots, had a quick bounce on the bed and then headed to the beach for some natural outdoor shots. Here are just a few of my favourites.

Theo

I absolutely love visiting new parents in their homes to take beautiful pictures of their family.

There are so many benefits to having a shoot at home, here are just a few:

  1. You can totally relax in your own home, and if you are relaxed your baby will be too.
  2. That mad dash to get out of the house? Gone!
  3. I bring everything I need to create a mini studio, there’s nothing you need to worry about in advance.
  4. If you have good natural light that’s great but don’t worry if not, I have amazing lights so can work in any environment.
  5. You will get a great mix of shots – studio style and more natural candid shots

Here are just a couple of my favourite shots from baby Theo’s shoot which took place in his home in Portobello, Edinburgh. It was such a relaxed shoot – Theo was an absolute gem and I loved meeting Rosy the dog too! Thanks Gaby and Stuart for making me so welcome in your beautiful home, I’ll hopefully bump into you walking along Porty prom some time soon!

Ailidh – Baby Photography at Home (Edinburgh and Surrounding Areas)

Ailidh

Edinburgh and Surrounding Areas

Having a baby photography at home session is a great experience. I love packing up my mobile studio and taking it to client’s homes for their baby shoot. Babies, parents and siblings can relax and I can capture a mixture of studio and candid shots. As always I don’t use many props – soft backdrops are about as far as I go, keeping the photos beautifully simple and the focus on the baby. Of course I am happy to include anything special to you – a particular toy or blanket for example.

Here is my favourite photo from baby Ailidh’s shoot which took place in her home in Kirkcaldy.

Edinburgh Outdoor Family Photography – Botanics

Edinburgh Outdoor Family Photography – Botanics

Autumn is such a brilliant time of year for outdoor family photography in Edinburgh. The colours are stunning and make the perfect backdrop for natural photos of kids. One of my favourite locations for family shoots like this is The Royal Botanical Gardens – to have nature like that right in the city centre is just amazing.

This shoot with Frankie and her lovely mum and dad was such fun. Here are a few of my favourite photos from the session.
