Newborn baby girl Rhea – Newborn Photography in Dundee & Angus

Newborn Photography – Newborns by Nicola | Scotland’s Specialist Newborn Photographer – Baby Photographer to Broughty Ferry, Dundee, Angus, Tayside, Perth & Aberdeen

This gorgeous girl is called Rhea! I love her name, it is very beautiful and means flowing (I hope Ive got that right!). Rheas mummy is very interested in egyptology which is how she heard of the name Rhea and chose it many years ago to be the name of her daughter! I love hearing little stories about how names were chosen!

Rhea was such a good little girl for her newborn photographs and we got lots of gorgeous images!

Normally it is just a few I post on here but I love so many so it is quite a large blog post compared to normal!

Here are some of my favourite from Rhea’s baby portrait session.

Newborn Baby Boy Zac and Handsome Big Brother Reese – Newborn Photography by Nicola Denny in Aberdeen.

A few years ago I had the pleasure of photographing little Reese as a newborn, and now it was brand new little brother Zac’s turn! One of my favourite things as a newborn photographer is watching ‘my’ families grow, gaining new little people and watching the little people grow into slightly bigger little people. This year I have seen so many photographs of some of my very first babies going into primary one!! I wonder how it’s going to feel when I see my babies off to high school or when they bring their own babies for their baby photographs?! Gosh that’s scary, but inevitable so will look forward to it!

Anyway back to the blog in hand, aren’t Reese and Zac just the cutest?? I loved photographing them!

Here are some of my favourite images from the newborn photography session.


Beautiful 7 week old Sophie – Newborn Photography – Beautiful Baby Photographs.

This beautiful little cherub is Sophie. Sophie was a tad older than our regular newborn sessions so her mummy was a wee bit worried that should wouldn’t get the sleepy images she hoped for, but she needn’t have worried as Sophie was a superstar! She did so well! It all goes to show it does depend on the baby as I have seen babies at just a week old staying awake for hours but the a 7 week old snoozed the whole time!

Sophie was also the first baby I started using just natural light as my main light source (yes my blog is totally not up to date and doesn’t go in order haha!).
I loved photographing this wee munchkin, here are a few of my favourites from the session:)

Double Trouble! – Twins Zander & Madison – Newborn Twin Photographs in Dundee & Angus.

Meet Zander and Madison! Aren’t they just the cutest?!

I have a wee soft spot for this family, their big brother Leo was among my first little newborns (he just started school eek!!) and then along came gorgeous Lexi and now double the trouble with gorgeous twins Zander & Madison. Most people would completely freak out going from 2 to 4 children in one swoop but Lynsey & Graeme are two of the most laid back people I have ever met and just take it in their stride.

Such a lovely family and I loved photographing the newest little munchkins!

Here are a few of my favourite images from the newborn portrait session.

Beautiful Ellie – Newborn Photography – Beautiful Newborn Portraits in Dundee and Angus.

This cute little sweetheart is Ellie! Ellie was amazing, when she first arrived she was really awake and her expressions and little smiles were just adorable! You can totally tell already she is going to be a wee ball of cheek but looks like butter wouldn’t melt. After a wee (well quite a long while actually haha) we got her all sleepy and ready for the lovely curly newborn poses. She was fantastic and we got lots of gorgeous images.

Most of my lovely babies travel less than 100 miles to get to us but this little mite travelled all the way from Liverpool for her session! I have also photographed 2 of her cousins as newborns travelling that huge distance too. I personally think they are a bit mad coming all that distance but they are such a lovely family and they make some cute babies who I just adore photographing!

Here is a selection of images from Ellies newborn portrait session
