Meet Your photographer

About Me 1

Hello, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Armands, and I’m really thrilled that you’ve discovered my photography!

I create and capture artistic portraits of expectant mothers, newborn babies, children, and families.

In my spacious city-centre-based photography studio or out-and-about at your favourite location – we celebrate life’s precious moments.

I am a parent too…

I realise that baby and family photography is much more than just taking photos. I know what it means to deal with kids and sometimes stressed parents. I have three full of beans kids, and life can get pretty hectic around here too.

I am just like you in this way. We juggle our lives with countless taxi rides to activities, endless negotiations and doing our best meanwhile to enjoy our family lives. We still would never have this any other way; we love our kids.

And while I understand that you are looking for beautiful portraits, I also know that you are looking for so much more from your photography experience.

About Me 2

A-Fotografy difference

I understand that there are many family photographers you could choose from. I believe that you need a photographer who not just takes photographs, you need a family photographer who understands you and your kids.

You need someone who can photograph not only how everyone looks, but also capture the essence of what makes your family unique and who you are with all your quirky personalities.

The entire focus is not only on creating portraits but also on providing you with an amazing, personalised customer experience for all of you.

I would like to enable you to see how special your family is, that each of you has your own unique personality and how much happiness you bring to each other. How then you all can relive these moments every day by enjoying your beautiful legacy artwork.

About Armands

I was born in Latvia but now consider Edinburgh as my home. You can get to know even more about me here.

I graduated with a BA in Professional Photography and set up my photography studio in 2010. We mainly focus on newborn and family photography. In 2022 I became one of the first in Scotland to teach Newborn Photography and Safety Qualification. I love putting my knowledge to use and teaching others.

When I am not photographing, I spend my time playing monster games with the kids. Chasing them and rolling around. If I am allowed and have time, I love fishing, hillwalking, and a good piece of cake (I grew up in a bakery ha-ha).
