Information & Prices


Pregnancy is such a beautiful and exciting time for couples and what better way to remember this time than to capture beautiful images! Mums-to-be who choose to have a maternity photo shoot love to celebrate this magical time and the changes to their body.

When to book

It is advisable to book in for when you are between 32 and 36 weeks pregnant and most people secure their booking after their 20 week scan. Most people also book their newborn session at this time. If you are expecting twins or multiple we may schedule your session slightly earlier to ensure you feel comfortable throughout.

What to expect

Maternity photography sessions are welcoming and friendly, I aim to make mums and dads-to-be forget that they are in front of a camera and capture your joy at this special time in your life.

The Edinphotoshoot studio caters to your every need throughout the shoot from comfortable sofas to relax on while discussing your preferred type of maternity photography.

The maternity photography sessions last around one to two hours which allows plenty of time for you to relax in front of the camera and find poses you are comfortable with. The studio is located on Niddrie Mains Road, Edinburgh and has free parking.

What to wear

For location sessions bright colours and layers work especially well. For in studio a simple vest top and maternity jeans or maxi dress look beautiful along with anything that helps to accentuate your beautiful bump! I can also advise on semi nude, nude and implied nude maternity posing for a stunning fine art pregnancy portrait. I have a selection of maternity gowns and fabrics at the studio to make sure you look and feel as fabulous as possible!

If you have an older baby or child I can create a photo shoot to suit you, whether you prefer a studio experience or an outdoor session in a favourite location.

My baby’s 1st year package is ideal for those of you who missed out on the newborn stage or wish to add to it and document your new baby’s development. You can find out more by clicking on “My 1st Year” in the packages section above.

For babies who can sit there is no end to the possibilities! My studio has a wide range of props, hats, headbands, blankets and clothing to create a session as gorgeous as your child. Or we can head to the beach or botanics and get barefoot!

Older children can feel self conscious having their photo taken and often don’t enjoy having to sit for a school photo. With this in mind I will talk with your child, ask them questions about themselves and put them at ease before my camera is even switched on. If we are working on location I will choose a quiet area where we are not being observed so your child can relax and enjoy the session.

Many families prefer location sessions for a more relaxed, natural feel. This can include a picnic, trip to the beach, piggy back rides, pretty much anything that sums up you and your family and how you love to spend time together. I have worked with dozens of families in a huge range of locations around Edinburgh and the Lothians so please just ask if you would like any help in choosing what would work best for your family portrait.

Your cake smash session starts off with gorgeous photos of your baby in favourite outfits and treasured cuddly toy for lovely natural portraits. Then after changing in to one of the cake smash outfits i have at the studio or something you have bought especially for your child the real fun begins!

Icing, cake and a baby make for some truly brilliant expressions and lots of fun for parents and child alike! Once the cake has been “smashed” baby can be cleaned up and enjoy a (water free) bubble bath in my vintage enamel bath tub for some gorgeous squeaky clean portraits.

Your cake will be made to order by maria to suit the colours or theme we have planned for your smash session and taking into consideration any allergies or dietary requirements your child may have. Alicks specialises is baking beautiful cakes that everyone can enjoy and i have specifically chosen to work with him exclusively as he can produce cakes to suit all dietary needs.

To book please call me on 07596312130 or use the book a session form above for me to call you back.

How early can I book my baby’s portrait session?

As soon as you know you are pregnant if you like! Most women book in around the 20 week scan but if you are past that just be sure to book in about a month before your baby’s due date. I know you’ll be very excited about your new baby, and I get excited too, so I’d love to follow your progress throughout your pregnancy. My diary books up around 3-4 weeks in advance for weekdays and around 8 weeks for weekend slots. I pencil your due date into my diary then a session date is arranged once baby has arrived.

What is the best age for newborn photos?

I recommend that netween 5-10 days old is the very best time to capture your baby as a newborn. This is when they are at their tiniest and they quickly lose that brand new look! Newborn babies are able to be posed at this age as they are still used to be curled up in the womb but from around 3 weeks onwards this quickly begins to change. I will happily work with older babies however they may not be able to be posed in the same way.

How do I book?

Once you have decided that you would like to book me please call me on 07596312130 or 07938571633 and we can discuss your requirements and arrange your booking. Alternatively you can click “Book a session” and fill out your details and I will call you. A session fee of £50.
Your session will only be booked into my diary once the session fee has been paid.

How long does a session take?

I allow plenty of time before and after your session so you will never feel rushed. Newborn sessions typically last around three to four hours so it’s best to book off the whole day so you can relax and enjoy the experience and not worry about the time! I will book out the entire day for your session so you don’t need to worry if baby takes a little while to get settled.

What should I bring?

I have written a newborn session guide which will be emailed to you when you book. This covers everything from how to prepare for the session, what to bring with you and what to wear.

What happens after our session?

At the end of your session we will arrange a date for you to return to the studio to view your images and place your order. This is typically 1-2 weeks after your session date. All orders must be paid for at your viewing session and I accept all major credit and debit cards. I know that after your shoot you will be excited to see your images so where permissable I will post a sneak peek of one of your images on Facebook within 48 hours for you to share with friends and family.

What should I do if my child is ill?

If your child is ill please contact me as soon as possible to rearrange your session. Please also bear in mind that as I work with pregnant ladies and newborn babies I cannot accept anybody into the studio if they have suffered vomiting or diarrhea within 48 hours. Out of respect for your family I work to the same rule and will contact you to reschedule if I or anyone in my household fall ill.
