An in-home family photoshoot in Edinburgh - Relaxing In The Leafy Suburbs Of Edinburgh

In-home newborn photoshoots will always have a special place in my heart. Despite doing most of my baby sessions in my little Scandi-inspired studio, I absolutely love when families get in touch for an in-home session.

This is how I started my photography career and I still adore shooting in family’s own surroundings.

I was so honoured to be invited to capture this gorgeous little one year old and his lovely parents during the summer for a natural and relaxed family photoshoot in Edinburgh to celebrate his first birthday.

Having been a lockdown baby, little F took a wee bit of time checking me out, having not been too used to seeing many people.

A little cuddle with mummy and a strum on the guitar with daddy helped him to relax and feel settled with me being there…

Over the few hours I was there, we spent time doing many of his favourite activities, playing in the kitchen baskets, riding his trike in the garden, playing in the mud kitchen and stories with daddy.

Documenting Playtime, Cuddles & Stories With Daddy…

As he got tired, I said to mum to take some quiet time and see if he falls asleep, luckily he did fairly easily and we finished this gorgeous session capturing mum and little F having beautiful cuddles in their rocking chair.

What a beautiful everyday moment, so natural and intimate.

As mothers, these are the seemingly small everyday moments that we just wish would last forever or press the pause button on. Our little ones seem to grow before our eyes and every cuddle means so much.

These are the kind of photos I dearly wished I had of me with my own children who are both in school now. I’m not quite sure how we got to this point!

When you’re in the thick of it, the baby years feel like they’ll last an eternity but in truth they pass in the blink of an eye…

‘The Days Are Long But The Years Are Short’

I left this beautiful Georgian Edinburgh home with a very full heart and excited to edit this session for the family to view, knowing that this final image here will be cherished for many years to come…

If you have a little one and looking for an Edinburgh newborn baby photographer to document this time in your lives, I’d love to hear from you!

My in-home photoshoots are perfect for little ones who are on the move and most comfortable playing and cuddling in their own space!

If you are expecting or just had a baby, I also offer in-home newborn photoshoots or natural studio sessions.

I book up a few months ahead so it’s best to get in touch in plenty of time.
