Baby Photographer in Edinburgh

For babies age 3-12 months.
Studio located in central Edinburgh.

When searching for baby photography Edinburgh you will find a range of options so let me tell you a little about how I work so you can decide if I am the right fit!

An older baby photography session is ideal for babies who are over 3 months of age. At this age your baby has changed enormously from when they were born. Full of smiles, expressions and personality it is a great age to capture!

An older baby photoshoot is the perfect follow up to your newborn session. Or for those who missed the newborn photography stage now is the perfect time to start documenting your baby’s first year.


Your Baby Photography Experience

When baby is 3-4 months of age this will involve plenty of expressions! A mix of full body and close up portraits. And some tummy time too! Once baby can sit up unaided there are even more options! The studio has props and outifts to choose from. And of course you can bring your favorites from home too.

We book out a full hour session so you are never rushed. Usually 30 minutes is plenty of time to capture a gorgeous selection of photos of your baby. This leaves time for feeds, cuddles and nappy changes as required.

During your session

Baby is Boss in the Beautiful Bairns studio!
Baby photography sessions are entirely baby led with plenty of time for feeds, cuddles and clean ups.

We will chat over a cuppa and choose the perfect colour palette for your images so they look beautiful when on display in your home.

Then you can sit back, relax and watch as I tease out giggles and smiles from your little one!

After your session

We will schedule your viewing & ordering appointment to take place around a week after your baby photoshoot.

All of your images will be expertly retouched for viewing and displayed in a slideshow.

We will work together to create the perfect package to suit your home and budget.

Your digital images will be ready to take home on the day.

Printed products will be shipped directly to your home or if you prefer we can have them delivered to the studio for you to collect at your convenience.

What should baby wear

For your baby photography session you want your baby looking their best. But there is no need to go out and buy them a whole new wardrobe! At the studio I have a selection of beautiful outfits, hats, headbands, wraps and props.

You are welcome to make use of the studio wardrobe and bring along some favourite outfits from home.

I also recommend a freshly ironed long sleeve vest for some classic images that will never date.

What our customers say

Our photos are amazing! Rachael is so warm, welcoming and the photoshoot was so relaxed. She was very patient with our baby, even when he needed to be fed. We will be back to see Rachael again in the near future!

Lindsay Kinsman

We loved every second of our photo shoot with Rachael. She was very friendly and welcomed us in to her studio making sure we were comfortable throughout the time we were there.

Rachael handled our little boy (10 days old) gently and with a lot of care ensuring he was settled throughout the whole 3 hours we were there, his comfort was her priority and it put us at ease knowing he was in safe hands when being handled.

Thank you so much, we love every one of the photos! Would highly recommend to anyone
