Baby Photography

Beautiful baby and newborn photography a short drive from Edinburgh

Create a Memory You'll Treasure

Babies grow up before we know it, and you only get one opportunity to capture those magical early moments.

Whether it’s beautiful, sleepy portraits during their first few weeks, starting to sit up and watch the world unfold around them, or a cake smash birthday celebration, let us bring out your baby’s emerging character, and create something truly special for you and your family.


What Age for your Baby Shoot?

The best age ranges for baby shoots are:

  • Maternity –  30 + weeks – whenever bump is big 🙂
  • Newborn – First four weeks – Newborn portraits (gorgeous!)
  • Sitter-Uppers – Around 6-10 months on (or when your child is self-supporting and sitting up)
  • 1 year old – Cake Smash or paint party !
  • If you are unsure call Allison on 0131 507 0737

Baby Gallery


A short drive from Edinburgh, our modern studio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your photoshoot

Meet our Baby Whisperers ...pixar versions 🙂

Baby, infant & maternity portraits are taken by Leanne and Devon, our very own dedicated baby photographers. Devon joined the team in August 2023 after running a small home studio previously.

And in May 2023 Leanne won “Most Promising Photographer of the Year” with the Scottish Master Photographers Association, and also received 11 Awards of Exellence.

Our studio sessions are VERY popular and book up 6-8 weeks in advance. Feel free to book as soon as you have a due date, and if baby comes later than expected we’ll move your shoot for free

Cake Smash!

Cake Smash sessions are one of the most fun portraits we do. We start off with some ‘normal’ family portraits, get plenty photos of the wee one on their own, then change outfits ready for some cake chaos! 

A full, fun, family shoot ending with the big first birthday celebrations, and we can supply the cake & balloons at no extra charge too!

Baby Portrait FAQ

* Can me and my partner be in a few photos ?
YES !  We always do mummy and daddy with baby at the end of the session.

* Can we include siblings ?
Yes – but be aware the newborn session part can take 90-120 minutes and older kids can get very bored until their pictures at the end. Call Ali on 07930 166715 for info on this.

* The dog and grandparents ?
GP’s yes… dogs at Cake Smash yes, but best not bring dog to baby shoot (newborn) 

Call Ali on 0131 507 0737 and she will advise on the best plan to include family etc.
