Babies are so small only once, but you will keep memories forever.

Your newborn baby is going to change dramatically in the next few month. Let’s celebrate it with a professional newborn photoshoot.
Newborn photography will take you back to these very moments and remind you how small your baby was, about the love that was oozing from you back then, and how your journey together began.

Those newborn days of long nights and endless nappy changes – yep, I was there!

“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.”

“ 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 ”

    Newborn Photoshoot: What to expect

    Probably one of the most asked questions is how to prepare for the newborn session and what, when to do. I have created very comprehensive how to prepare for the session guide for parents.

    Check out this blog post I made about the best time to take newborn photos.

    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 5-14 days old when they come in for the session, but this greatly varies with each individual baby.

    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.

    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. 

    The studio is fully equipped and specifically designed for newborn photo sessions.

    The safety of your baby is my first priority. While you’re in my studio, I am committed to caring for your baby as though they were my own.

    I have been fully trained in newborn safety. I appreciate how delicate they are and how important it is to support their tiny bodies and to keep them warm and comfortable.

    I also work with an assistant who helps me during all my newborn photoshoots. Between us, we are able to ensure that your baby is always being held or supported and is completely safe during your photoshoot

    Absolutely. I would even encourage you to do it as these would be amazing first portraits with not only parents but grandparents too. I have made a blog post specifically talking about newborn family photos here. 

    Would like some gorgeous sibling and newborn photos? Check out possibilities with newborn and siblings here. 

    It has become increasingly popular to include pets into newborn photos. I absolutely love doing this. As a result, I made a blog post which talks about things you should consider before bringing your pet to the studio. 

    During my over 10 years of experience with newborn babies, I have learned loads of tricks and ways to settle and photograph awake newborns as well. Parents always are a bit worried about how the session will go. I have made a little guide to show possibilities with awake newborn babies. Don’t worry, there is still plenty we can do here.

    “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.”

    I offer two different types of newborn session. Whichever you choose, you’ll receive an amazing and unique set of photos.
