MATERNITY, NEWBORN & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY IN AND AROUND EDINBURGH
Am I the right photographer for you?
Parenthood. It's a roller coaster ride. It's easy to get wrapped up in the every day chaos of family life, wading through piles of laundry and organising packed lunches. (two things I detest) We judge ourselves constantly and cringe at the thought of a trip to Asda as the last time you were out the house as a family.
It's very difficult to find time to just stop and re-charge.
Being outdoors can help us do that, even if it's just a simple sausage sizzle in the woods. If things don't go to plan, it's not the end of the world and quite often it's those unplanned days which turn out to be the best.
If you're not looking for the perfectly posed formal family portrait but instead are happy to let things roll in an unexpected sort of fashion then I am the photographer for you. I want to capture you and your family just as you come. Tears. Tantrums. Laughter. The Lot. Let your kids be the kids they are, no need for stiff shirts or smart boots. Don't fear the mud, embrace it! I want you to feel relaxed and worry free. If you don't feel like this, I haven't done my job properly.
If you're new to parenthood then congratulations. Welcome to chaos ;-) Those early days with a new baby are fleeting with good moments and the not so good ones. If you want a stress free and easy going session, I capture you and your baby in the place where your family story begins. Home. Candid and naturally lit images sensitively conveying the moments you can very quickly forget. No bright studio lights, no pressure to look perfect and no need to travel! Think of it as some quality bonding time with your baby.
The same can be said if you are looking for maternity photos. I can do these at home or at an outdoor location of choice.
As first time parents we couldn’t have been more at ease with the whole process. The fact that Kirsty comes to your house meant myself and my partner were so much more relaxed and the photos are amazing!

THE LADY BEHIND THE LENS
NICE TO MEET YOU!
In a nutshell I'm an upcycling, tea drinking mummy to two small people (Actually not so small any more. Sniff.) Honestly, where do the years go??!
Looking back to when I was a child in the 70's and 80's my dad would take his photographs with an Olympus film camera on our holidays which he would develop as slides. We were treated to the odd slideshow on a Saturday night of a particular holiday, but we never really saw half the images he took (still haven't) and more to the point, other than a grin full of braces from a School photograph, these images were seldomly framed and displayed.
It couldn't be easier nowadays to take a photo. But STILL, despite this, it's a rare thing if we actually have the time to print and display them in our homes. More often than not they get put onto a USB stick before getting shoved into a man drawer to be forgotton about (and let's face it, once that happens they will never be turned into prints.)
Let's change this!
How much time do you spend on Pinterest drooling over perfect wall galleries in perfect homes, thinking that one day you'll manage to do something about it before the kids hit their 18th birthday. You cherish spending what little time you have with family (goodness they are growing up before your eyes) and take a pride in your home. How much would you like to have beautiful, custom artwork of your children and loved ones, on your walls for you to look at and ADORE every. single. day?
Kirsty was absolutely brilliant. We got some great shots of us all, including the kids. Very natural but perfect for the wall. Just what we wanted!

Most people who only buy digitals, never end up framing any of the images. It doesn't need to be like this.
