Last week I met with beautiful Alexa and her lovely parents in the Botanics in Edinburgh for a family shoot, booked to celebrate Alexa’s 3rd birthday. Alexa really loves drawing and reading so we spent a few minutes indoors and then had a lovely wander around outdoors. The shoot was just lovely and I had loads…

Eight day old baby Alfie’s newborn photography shoot took place in his home in Musselburgh, just outside of Edinburgh, and it was an absolute delight. Bob and Donna are such relaxed parents and it’s obviously rubbing off on the wee fellow – he was so content and alert for the first part of the shoot and then dozed off…

Little Archie was nothing less than an absolute star during his ‘At Home’ newborn photography session yesterday. I arrived at his lovely home in central Edinburgh and set up my wee studio in the living room while he had a little feed. He was then super relaxed and alert for the majority of the shoot, before uncomplainingly drifting…

It was great to meet this lovely family for their ‘At Home’ session in their home in Edinburgh. Mia is the loveliest big sister to her new brother Harry – what a couple of cuties. I set up my kicking lights and my wee ‘studio’ in the living room and captured the loving candid moments too…

It was such a pleasure to visit this lovely family in their home in Bonnyrigg for their ‘At Home’ newborn/family photography session.  Dawn and Michael are such loving and relaxed parents and Abigail is such a gentle and caring big sister to little Kirsten – it was really special watching them together. Here are just a…

I absolutely loved working with the lovely and talented Catherine who runs Sing and Sign classes for babies in Edinburgh.  Sing and Sign classes teach parents how to sign with their babies and encourage amazing early communication. The class was just LOVELY. It was wonderful being able to capture all of the fun – the…

It was such a pleasure to meet baby Joshua and his lovely parents Stephen and Keren in their home in Edinburgh. I set up in the living room and we got some lovely photos of Joshua in the ‘studio’, plus some lifestyle photos around the house. I love the one of Joshua smiling at his…

I was first introduced to CosyPull because my nephew wore his snood every day last winter and I was so impressed I bought one for each of my children. They are just brilliant – handmade in Scotland, practical, cosy and well designed. As you can imagine I was delighted when Christina arranged a shoot for…

I first met this lovely family a couple of years ago when Màiri was just a couple of  weeks old. She is now a loving big sister to amazing wee Angus. We didn’t have the entire family there on the day (that’s being saved for an outdoor shoot when Angus is toddling) but Gemma was free and…

Edinburgh Kids Class Photographer I absolutely loved taking these photographs for Step It Up Dance, a brilliant dance company for kids. This session took place in the awesome Calton Centre in Edinburgh. There were two sessions – Family Hip Hop (where the parents got their groove on too) and Hip Hop Juniors, for children happy to dance…

I absolutely loved this shoot for Ceilidh Kids, a wonderful Edinburgh kids’ class run by the lovely Caroline Brockbank. The kids were amazing, they had such fun and were busting some serious ceilidh moves. There was a lovely mix of dancing and games and loads of parental involvement, allowing me to get a nice mix…

This mini product shoot for Robertson and Rhodes was such fun! Robertson and Rhodes made luxury handmade knitwear for babies and kids and were looking for lifestyle images of some of their hats in use, mainly for use on social media and their etsy page.  I love being able to provide my clients with a…

I love outdoor family photography and we are so lucky in Edinburgh to have so many beautiful places to walk and explore. The Botanic Gardens are stunning and a perfect choice of location to have family photos taken. I really enjoyed spending time with Naomi and her lovely parents on her 1st birthday shoot. It was…

I absolutely loved meeting beautiful Isla and her lovely parents Ruth and Frankie in their home in Edinburgh last week. Ruth had responded to an offer I was running on the facebook group Edinburgh Gossip Girls (the offer has now expired but keep an eye on my own facebook page for future similar deals). I…

Meeting tiny Tristan and his loving family in their home in Bathgate was an absolute pleasure. Tristan was four weeks early so while these photographs were taken when he was two weeks old, Lisa would still have been 38 weeks pregnant if he’s stayed put a little longer. Tristan’s brother Arthur was on top form…

I loved visiting newborn baby Rebecca and her lovely parents Alison and Keith in their home in Ratho, near Edinburgh. Alison was super organised and had booked the session while she was still pregnant and beautiful Rebecca was two weeks old at the time of the shoot. She is such a content little baby and we got…

OK, so I will admit bias, I do live in Portobello… but really, it’s such a great place for outdoor family photography in Edinburgh. Whether we are collecting shells, throwing stones into the water, building sandcastles or playing tig, the kids will be having fun and I get to capture it all. Here are a…

I’ve been meaning to visit Craigmillar Castle in Edinburgh for a while now and eventually got around to paying a visit there with friends. What a place! The kids absolutely loved exploring all of the nooks and crannies. There are so many staircases and rooms to look in and their imaginations were sent into dragon hunting…

Edinburgh Photographer – Moo Music Launch Event I loved going along to the Moo Music Edinburgh East Launch event and taking some candid shots of the kids having a blast. Business owners Becky and Carmen are such lovely ladies and they did a brilliant job of keeping these little ones entertained and happy. As always…

I absolutely loved taking photos of stylish and ethical kids’ clothing company Bon Tot‘s new Spring/Summer collection for an article soon to be featured on Edinburgh with Kids. The shoot was very relaxed and so much fun. It took place in the Bon Tot shop on St Stephen Street in Stockbridge, Edinburgh and our little models …

Edinburgh Newborn Photography at Home There are many benefits to having your newborn baby photographed in your own home.  Getting out of the house in the early days can be a major challenge – just as you think you are ready to go your wee one may decide they are ready for another feed, change…

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…
