I am super excited to share this very exciting news! John Lewis is launching a new event for expectant parents in their Edinburgh store. A relaxed, informal event taking place in the nursery department. It is your opportunity to come along, browse and “ask the experts”, myself included! I am over the moon to be their “newborn photography expert” what an honour!

John Lewis is renowned for their expertise and this is a huge focus for me. Here’s a thought for you. There is no “qualification” in newborn photography. Anyone can buy a “good camera” and call themselves a photographer. And scarily they can set up a business with zero training at all.

But like John Lewis, that’s not how I work. I have invested heavily in training every year I have been in business. I have trained in safe baby posing. I know how to handle your baby safely. I know how to position them so circulation is not compromised. I know what poses can only be achieved with support or digital trickery. As I am always looking to improve this year I am completing paediatric first aid training.

The first event is next Sunday the 9th of September and starts at 10.30am. Refreshments will be provided, perfect for the hungry mums to be!

So if you are pregnant please come along! It is the perfect opportunity to find out about all aspects of preparing for a new baby. I will be there to chat about safety in newborn photography and a Q&A session. So if you have any questions about what to expect or how to plan this is your chance!

Spaces are limited so to book yours please email kirsty.knust@johnlewis.co.uk for your ticket.

There will be a special offer for all parents to be who attend the event so do come over to say hi!
