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

Maternity Portrait Session with Gail – Maternity and Newborn Photography – Photography in Dundee & Angus, Scotland

Maternity Portraits – Bump and Baby Photographs by Newborns by Nicola – Pregnancy Photos in Dundee & Angus.

Recently this beautiful lady, Gail came in for her maternity portrait session. Gail came for her maternity session a tad earlier than most because this teeny lady makes rather huge bumps! She is a wee petite lady who from the back you would never know she was expecting, it is just all pure bump!

Maternity portraits are a type of session that I only really do every few months as normally it is mainly just newborns I photograph but I really do enjoy bump shoots as it gives me a chance to be a bit creative without relying on a teeny baby cooperating, I can be a wee bit bossy and get some really lovely images:)

Pregnancy sessions also mean that I get to meet and know the parents before the baby comes along which is really lovely!

Here are my favourite images from the session, I think Gail looks just amazing! I can’t wait to meet little one!


Beautiful Newborn Baby Girl Libby – Newborn Photography – Baby Photographs in Dundee & Angus

Meet gorgeous little tot, Libby! Libby came to visit me recently all the way from Banchory in Aberdeenshire for her very first photo shoot. In fact she liked her newborn portrait session so much that she had two goes!! Haha! On her first try for sleepy newborn photographs unfortunately she was a little unsettled with her tummy and sometimes you just have to leave it and try another day so a few days later Libby came back feeling a lot better and within the space of just an hour we managed to get lots of stunning photographs of her. And huge big thanks to her and her parents for bringing me a lovely gift of chocolates which I of course scoffed while processing her photos:)

This is probably a great post to mention that in the situation that your newborn is unsettled we will always try again another day, they are so little and tire easily so we do not want to push too much, if its not going to happen that day it just won’t happen, the babies are the bosses! So please if you are thinking of a session and worrying that baby won’t play ball then please don’t worry:)

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