Welcome to A-Fotografy!

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. I also offer wedding service too.

In my spacious city-centre-based photography studio, or out-and-about at your favourite location – whichever you prefer – I capture life’s precious moments.

Your portraits will highlight the beauty of importance of life events and capture personality and emotional connection.

“Armands has a young family of his own so he was like a hands-on dad as well as a very professional photographer whose attention to detail was admirable.”

My greatest goal is for you to fall madly in love with the portraits I take for you, and I believe you will!

About Armands

I was born in Latvia but now consider Edinburgh as my home. I studied for my BA in Professional Photography here and knew when I setup my photography studio in 2012 that this was the place I wanted to be. I love the laid-back pace of Edinburgh and the fact that you can leave town and get to the hills or the countryside within a few minutes, don’t you?

I’ve always loved fishing and nature. I grew up in a farming family and am so grateful for that now. You see, fishing made me a very patient person, and now this skill is very handy for my newborn photo sessions. I also love hiking. My other loves are my wife and my children and tea and cake!

Am I the right photographer for you?

I’m an experienced family-focussed photographer, committed to creating beautiful, timeless and artistic photographs of the most important people in your world.

You’ll find me to be easy-going, relaxed and great with kids – as I should be, I have three of my own. I know that life with young children can be chaotic and I love that! Moments spent with my family are truly priceless, and I know you feel the same.

My laid-back, relaxed approach is key to capturing the very best possible pictures of you and your family. Working with me, you’ll feel informed and relaxed throughout the entire process; there are no hidden costs or nasty surprises. Just fun times and fabulous photos!

Hire me and you’ll want to display your portraits in your homes for years to come. In fact, the images will become a legacy to pass down for generations – an investment well worth making and which will bring many years of enjoyment.

“What an awesome day! We used A-Fotografy for our wedding photographer 4 years ago and we were blown away by the amazing images Armands captured, so naturally when our first child arrived we knew who we wanted take our baby shoot. Although we were slightly later than most people as our shoot was not in the first 5-10 days after birth Armands managed to capture some incredible images to help us remember our son at such a young age! The session was relaxed and informal and met all of our expectations. Communication prior to the shoot was prompt and instructions on what to bring and where to go we clear and informative.”
