Family photography | family photo shoot Edinburgh

Lifestyle photography is very unique because it not only captures what you look like, but also who you are. During your family photo shoot I aim to create honest photos of your family and children. The goal isn’t to get a stiff  shot with everyone looking at the camera, but to capture the personality of your family. Using natural light I create images that will become works of art filled with wonderful energy that you can hang in your home. You can view the family portfolio HERE.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your session with me:


Together, we will decide on the best location for your photos. Maybe there is place that is special for your family, or maybe you would like to visit a new location.  We can photograph you in your home as long as there is enough natural light. Many families like staying at home because of the intimate and personal feel it provides. There are many wonderful locations that I love to shoot at, but I am always open to your ideas as well. You should choose a location that fits your family and age of your children. We are blessed with being close to the beach, lovely hills, forests and fields and I am happy to introduce you to my favourite places.

Best time:

If we are shooting in your home, I prefer late morning, because that is when the light is best. If we are shooting outdoors we will shoot either in the morning or in the evening. The light is typically too harsh mid day. If your children are up for it, shooting one to two hours before sunset provides gorgeous light and atmosphere. The images in my portfolio look the way they do largely because of my use of light and the time of day your session takes place has a huge impact. Many families tell me that they simply have the kids take a late nap or have some down time prior to their evening session. You can also bring pyjamas and change your children before heading back home.

I am available to book both on weekends and weekdays.


Your family portrait session will typically last around an hour-90 minutes.

how to prepare your children and more detailed info will be available to you once your session is booked.

After your session

Soon after your photo session you will receive a link to your online secure gallery (typically within 3 days, because I know how excited you are about them). You will be able to view your secure online gallery in the comfort of your home and share it with your family and friends.
