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 two to three weeks for perfect,  sleepy newborns, but can do up to 6/7 weeks, but most photos will be with parents holding… which is the most beautiful ones anyway ! 🙂
  • 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...

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.
