Newborn Photography Edinburgh


Sessions take place in my natural light studio. Edinburgh weather and light can be ever-changing, I therefore add consistant light sources for days that are a bit dim. Sessions are booked Monday to Friday and I only take one session a day. Please book your session 2-3 months before your due date to ensure a guaranteed session with me. However, if you have not prebooked a spot, please contact me, I may have last minute openings to accommodate you.

Newborn sessions are best done 6 to 14 days after your baby is born. At this age they are still very sleepy and we can get those curled up poses.

After this age, they do not sleep as deeply and often don’t like to be moved around too much. They may even be quite colicky and have started with baby acne.

Older Newborn Babies are still more than welcome for a newborn shoot. I will capture your older newborn in beautiful, quality light and you will be so happy you booked this shoot. Your gallery will have a combination of awake and asleep images.

I always encourage sibling and family images. We are documenting your unique life.

I believe in classic, simple, organic and classic newborn images that you are going love always. A style of photography that focuses on your adorable baby. The focus is always on your baby and not getting lost between props and clutter. I do have simple props in the studio, hats, headbands, bowls and baskets and lots of texture that I like to use. Newborns are beautifully perfect just how they came into this world.

My baby is more than 2 weeks old. Is it too late for a newborn shoot?

The ideal time for newborn photographs is between 6 and 14 days of age. After 2 weeks, babies typically start to spend longer periods awake, uncurl, stretch out and grow larger.

However, it is possible to create beautiful photographs after 2 weeks of age. I photograph older babies up until 8 weeks of age.

If you have missed the 2 week window and would like to find out about your options, please get in touch.

You can send me a message at the end of this page or give me a call on 07909 876534.

What if my baby has spotty or flaky skin? Should we wait with the shoot?

It is very unusual for a newborn baby to not have spotty or flaky skin. This is very common. With your permission, I will fix this when I am retouching the photographs after your shoot.

What if my baby is born prematurely or has an extended stay in the hospital?

If you baby is premature or has an extended stay in the hospital, this can be such a stressful time with recovering from the birth and adjusting to your baby’s unexpected situation.

When you are ready to consider doing your newborn images, just let me know and we can discuss the specifics of your situation. Often with premature newborn babies, we are flexible with the “optimal window”.

We don’t want our baby shared online or on social media. Can you guarantee this?

I take your privacy very seriously and will only publish your images with your permission. If you give permission, your images will be shared anonymously (I will never share your or your baby’s names.)

Any images shared online will go hand in hand with a signed model release.
