These little miracles are anticipated, wished for, and loved unconditionally even before we know their names. The arrival of a newborn is a special time, a journey unlike any other. And in the blink of an eye, they’ll be planning their own adventures.

At A-Fotografy, we capture this fleeting newborn stage with a focus on bond and family love. Our comfortable photography studio in Edinburgh is designed with babies in mind.

Time flies during those first weeks, capture it before it slips away.

Parent Resources for newborn photography

Include your family and even furbabies

If you have such a possibility, please do consider it. I know it might be extra planning and organising everything, but treat this as an opportunity to have more beautiful portraits for your children to have. At the end of the day, these types of portraits will be the most important down the line. Over the past years, I had so many families thanking me for encouraging bringing grandparents in. We also have disabled access if needed.

I have made a blog post specifically talking about newborn family photos here.  Would you like some gorgeous sibling and newborn photos? Check out possibilities with newborn and siblings here. 

Things to consider if planning to bring your furbaby too.

Very often dogs or cats are the very first babies we are looking after and caring for. They have a very special place in our hearts and we definitely take them as part of our families.

I love seeing furbabies in my studio and creating special portraits with newborns and dogs. Have even made a whole blog post about what to consider and how it works. Check it out here bringing your pet to the studio. 

In a nutshell, we need to think about how your furbaby might feel around new baby, how could they do at the studio and what this would mean for you to have these special portraits.

Jumpy and excited dogs are not an issue as 99% of times these portraits are composites and I would never put your baby at risk if I feel your dog could accidentally bump the prop with the baby in it or jump etc. Everything is done in the very same manner.

Consider Newborn Photography at Home?

Would you like more candid and not so posed newborn photos? A home session would be the perfect way to record these memories.

You have a choice of coming to my spacious Edinburgh studio for a styled newborn photo session or I can come to your house for a more natural candid newborn session. I have made an educational piece for parents comparing two types of newborn sessions here. Also, check out real home photo session galleries here.
