Family Photography

Family portraits you'll treasure, in a peaceful studio just a short drive from Edinburgh

Make the most of the limited time we have together as families

It’s not every day you get professional family portraits taken. A family photoshoot is not only a wonderful experience, but a beautiful family portrait creates a memory that you’ll look back on ever more fondly as the years go by.

We adore when full families come in for portraits. We’re privileged to share these special moments with you, knowing the memories will last forever.

“We’ve been coming as a family to GWS since our daughter was born over 13 years ago. Grahame and Alison have always made us feel welcomed and at ease with the utmost professionalism. Our most recent photoshoot was our first time at the new studio and it is a beautiful building in a stunning setting.
We chose a package with a big frame – and it’s something we will never regret buying, seeing our family on the wall every day. It looks incredible.
We’ll be back again for sure.”

A Family Experience

As much fun as the finished product is the photoshoot itself. As we all get into a jolly mood for the fun photos and then pause to reflect for the more serious ones, you’ll find that time soon flies by as your family enjoy this special time together. 

Our spacious studio is set in beautiful rural surroundings and is all yours for the duration of the shoot. Arrive 15 minutes early so we can take the time to get you settled in and relaxed with a cup of tea or coffee before starting.

Booking Your Shoot

Our studio sessions are VERY popular. We are usually completely booked up 3-5 weeks in advance, so book as soon as you can.

You’ll want to bring a couple of changes of clothes and to try and ensure a similar colour palette between you all. We’ll send you information about all these practicalities before you come, to ensure you get the absolute most out of your day.

Situated a short drive from Edinburgh, we’re the perfect choice for families who want to get away from the noise of the city for a relaxed and fun photoshoot. Our rural studio has free and easy parking and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, ensuring you’re in just the right mood for your shoot. You’ll see the difference in your photos!
