Baby and Cake Smash 1

Your baby’s first year is full of baby milestones that you’ll want to reflect back on in years to come – from the tummy time stage through to sitting up, crawling and beginning to walk. There’s so much you’ll want to capture – don’t miss your chance!

I’ve been a baby photographer in Edinburgh since 2010 and have been privileged to meet so many beautiful babies during that time. Crawling around the floor making funny noises, making a fool of myself and having fun with your little one is what I enjoy most about my job as a baby photographer. I’m also relaxed, easy going, and incredibly patient – all essential skills to achieve awesome baby photography.

Father of three

As a dad of three myself, I also know what it’s like to be a parent. I know what it’s like to be exhausted, yet deliriously happy.

I know what it’s like to have my greatest accomplishments in this world throw their spaghetti across the kitchen, and still feel completely and truly blessed.

And I know how to work with children to get the very best possible photographs for you to enjoy and smile at for years to come.

What’s wonderful about children is that

No matter how little the hands, they are always big enough to hold onto your heart.

“A-Fotografy was recommended to us by a number of people in Edinburgh and we were not disappointed!! We wanted some pictures that captured our little boy who is now 9 months old, as he just seems to be growing up so quickly! Armands was really fantastic with my son! I have to admit I was a bit worried about how we would entertain him for an hour and a half in front of a camera, but Armands is brilliant with children! Armands just made him giggle the entire time which made for some great pics!"

Cake Smash Photography

Fact: Babies are happiest when they are covered in food!

Baby and Cake Smash 42

Babies just love to explore their world through touch and taste. Which is why cake smash photoshoots are really popular! Cake smash portraits are great fun and are a way of capturing cute baby photos.

Digging their little hands into their very own cake. Making as much of a mess as possible is the name of the game here! But, don’t worry, I do all the cleaning up afterwards.

Baby Photography Sessions: What to expect

-  Your photo session will last as long as we need to create beautiful artwork for you. Each baby is different and reacts in own way to strangers. It could be one hour, it could be several. -  Before I start taking photographs, we have some settling-in time so we can get to know each other better. My aim is for you to feel comfortable and relaxed. - Mummy and Daddy, please be ready to make lots of funny noises to get your rascal happy. Bring any favourite toys, blankets, snacks and dummies so that we have them to hand if needed. - Expect your session to be loaded with activity and energy. I aim to make the sessions lively and fun – a great experience for everyone. - Expect to get involved in the photos yourself – yes, really! If you aren’t comfortable in front of the camera, don’t worry. I can guide and advise you on how to stand, where to look and how to interact with your partner and baby. The aim is to create natural, loving portraits that capture you as a family unit. I’ll aim to take individual mum/dad shots with the baby, and I’ll involve your other children if you have them, and even pets too! -  The end goal of your photo shoot is for you to have a beautiful collection of photos to share with loved ones, liven up your living room or to make a beautiful heirloom album.P.S. I’d recommend you don’t make lots of plans for the day of your photoshoot. Yes, you’ll be pleasantly tired and your cheeks will hurt after all that smiling and make goofy noises!

“Armands is friendly, not pushy, genuine and very experienced. He will give you his opinion but equally let you decide for yourself and direct the shoot as you want.”
