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 - and when to book ?

The best age ranges for baby shoots are:

  • Maternity –  30 + weeks – whenever bump is big 🙂
  • Newborn – First three weeks – Newborn portraits (gorgeous!)
  • Sitter-Uppers – Around 7-10 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 07930 166715

    But BOOK NOW ! It’s best not to wait until baby is here for newborns as we run one of the busiest (and best) baby studios in the country and we very often book out 3-6 weeks ahead and you might miss out.
    We will reschedule for free if baby is late or early.

You can fill in this form and we'll contact you by phone... or book direct with the diary at the bottom of this page...

    Packages ?
  • You won’t really know what you want until you see your beautiful photos at the big screen viewing.
  • We have a studio full of sample frames, print sizes, books, canvases, digitals, phone Apps, box sets…. with MANY combinations of them all.
  • You don’t come to a professional studio like GWS for a few photos on your phone – you can do that at home yourself…. but what we will create for you will be VERY special and you will LOVE the choices we show you.
  • We have beautifully finished frames from £299, packs of ten prints from £399 – and many, many more. You just won’t get the experiance, service or photographs like this anywhere else.
  • We all take and keep photos on our phones – it’s a way of life now – but when you come home from a stressful day at work – or the kids have had a bad day – when you walk into your home with a beautiful family photo on the wall you feel loved, wanted and that you matter in this world.

    This is why the team at GWS create all our clients beautiful memories that will be permanent reminders of how amazing your whole family is – it’s easy to forget in these stressful times but in printed photography you can look up from the TV or walk in the door worn out and tired and see that beautiful family you are a part of.

You can't put a price on amazing family photos...

Some samples of photo prices…

We do the full range of prints, books, frames & canvas, box sets and of course, digitals.

With large individual prints, and smaller ones in sets, and our very popular Collections – we have something for everyone. We put together tangible products with digital so you get the very best of everything.
Our average client spends £299 to £1499 and what they all have in common is they all LOVE what we have created for them. No-one ever leaves GWS feeling they have spent too much – although many do spend more than they initially planned – but they leave feeling they have made one of the best decisions ever.

We want you to go home knowing you have made the very best choice and have many years of happiness with what we have created together.

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. 

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

Call Ali on 07930 166715 and she will advise on the best plan to include family etc.
