An Experienced and Leading Newborn Baby Photographer in Edinburgh. At Studio or Home Photography.
I’m a dad of three myself, and every time I photograph a newborn baby I’m transported back to those moments when I was holding my own little babies. Those crazy newborn days of sleepless nights and endless nappy changes – yep, I was there for it all, and know how you feel!
I’m so grateful to have portraits of my own children as newborns. I often find myself looking back at the photos, full of emotion and stunned at how fast they’ve grown.
The newborn stage flies by but, with newborn photographs, you can relive those early days forever. Without them, they are gone.
“Letting a complete stranger hold your child may be daunting but I can honestly say I’ve never felt so comfortable. Armands was so patient with my daughter. He sussed out her body language within a few minutes of holding her and walking about with her.”
Newborn Photo sessions
“ We had such a good experience with him the first time, that when we found out we were expecting our second baby we contacted him right away to get booked up! We have been delighted with the images from both photoshoots and given the different packages that he offers for purchasing photographs, albums, frames etc. it is easy to get something really special ”

When is the best time for newborn photography?
It is important to book your newborn photoshoot during your pregnancy (anytime after your 20-week scan is ideal) so that we can get the date secured in my diary.
Newborn photography needs to be done in the first few weeks after your baby’s birth, so please don’t leave it until the last minute to contact me – I am likely to not be able to fit you in at short notice.
If your baby arrives either earlier or later than expected, we can change the date if necessary. Ideally, your baby would be between 5-10 days old when they come in for the session.
If you’ve missed your chance to have photos taken in those important first three weeks, don’t worry! It’s possible to photograph babies aged up to six weeks old, and there are many possibilities for photographing babies older than this also.

“Armands’ instructions on how to prepare for the shoot was very helpful and you can clearly see from that moment that he know how to deal with tiny babies. This just leads to an even better experience of seeing him managing the baby during the shoot. As first-time parents, we could actually learn some of his methods to soother the baby.”
