newborn baby photoshoot scotland

Thank you for visiting our newborn photography page. It’s wonderful that you are interested to learn more about our baby photography services.

We’ve welcomed hundreds of newborn babies to our custom-designed photography studio here in Aberdeen and would be delighted to capture precious photos of your little one too!

Our newborn photography sessions book up about eight weeks in advance, so we recommend that you book early to ensure you secure a slot in the weeks after your baby’s birth. Ideally contact us after your twenty-week scan, when you’ve found out your due date. This will allow us to make sure we get you firmly in the diary.

Don’t worry! The provisional date that we choose for your baby’s newborn photo session can always be changed, depending on when they decide to make an appearance!

The ideal time to take your baby’s first portraits is between 5 and 14 days old. However, there’s no wrong time to take your baby’s photos, so please get in touch to check our availability even if your baby has passed the newborn stage.

When you come in for your newborn photoshoot, an appointment will be made for you to return to the studio approximately two weeks afterwards for a viewing session with either Susan or our Studio Manager, Carla.  At this appointment we will show you a slideshow of approximately 20 beautiful pictures of your baby. 

It’s worth having a think about where you would like to display your baby photos at home and to look at our photography packages and wall art prices (see below). Please do this before you come to the viewing appointment so that you have an idea of what you’d like to go home with.

Measure your walls at home so you know the spaces you plan to fill with your baby’s beautiful portraits. Do also come prepared to decide which baby photos you are going to buy. Choosing between them will be tough but we’re here to help, and guarantee that there will be no hard sell.

You are welcome to bring grandparents along to your viewing appointment or anyone else who you think may wish to see the images. Since we don’t offer online galleries, this is their chance to see the pictures.

A session deposit of £100 for your time at the studio is payable upon booking.  This will be deducted from your chosen package at the viewing stage.  Please note, we don’t offer individual prints or digital files, these can only be purchased as part of the packages noted below.

(All of your digital portraits include printing rights, allowing you to produce prints, enlargements and albums. It is our job to produce high quality beautiful images for you and we firmly believe that anything printed over 10 x 8” in size should be done professionally so that it is displayed at the quality it deserves in your home. If you are unhappy with the quality of your images printed elsewhere, we cannot be held responsible.)

Wall art Prices (size applies to outside edge and is in inches):

We specialise in creating beautiful pieces for your home to love and cherish for years to come. Have a look around the space you have and measure it out so that when we have your viewing session you have an idea of what you’re after!


What to bring:

Make sure to bring a change of clothing in case your baby makes a mess on you. It sometimes happens! It’s also best to bring plenty of extra nappies and wipes.

IF your baby has taken a bottle, we would recommend that you bring pumped milk or formula so we can bottle feed during the session. This allows the baby to eat faster (and more!) at one sitting so they will sleep more soundly, therefore allowing for more setups in the time we have together.  If you use a dummy with your baby, please bring along a couple of these too. 

Parent shots and the all-important sibling portraits are included in the session. We have a lovely selection of dresses for Mummy and would love to include this in the session. Please ask Carla or Susan for more information or have a read of our Newborn FAQ’s blog post for even more details. You can also have a read of what others think about our studio on our Testimonials page.
