I offer maternity sessions for Mums who would like to capture their bumps before baby arrives.  This is a very special time and a lovely keepsake from when you were pregnant.  The session lasts up to one hour in the studio, prior to your session we discuss the styling/clothing/hair/make-up etc.  The session can take place within the studio or can be an outdoor location if you wish.  Your maternity session can also be combined with a newborn session, please email me for further details. 


I can offer a full newborn photo session which lasts approximately 2-4 hours.  Once settled, baby is placed into various positions using my various props/clothing etc. (to your taste)  The way I work is more natural baby led, I don’t force baby into any unnatural positions and only move baby into positions he/she is comfortable with.  Parent/sibling images can be added at the start of the session if you wish.  The best time to photograph baby is when they are between 7-14 days new. 

I am a standard member with BANPAS which is the recognised association for newborn photographers within the UK.  Please read further on what being a member means CLICK HERE

Please note: The package is £60 for the session itself with a minimum product order of 10 high resolution digital files on USB

Cake Smash

I offer two types of cake smash packages.  The first is our Deluxe Cake Smash package where we devise a theme to go along with the smash, such as Thomas the tank, hungry caterpillar etc. or a simple colour co-ordinated design.  We begin with pre-smash photos capturing the little one in a nice outfit then move on to the very messy, very fun smash itself!  We finish up with a lovely bubble bath getting little one all clean again.  All your decorations and large cupcake cake are included within the session fee. 

The second package I offer is a mini cake smash where we solely concentrate on the cake smash itself.  The session lasts 30 minutes and your decoration and cake are included in the price.  You have a choice of colours to choose from which are red, blue, yellow, green or pink. 

Sitter sessions / Milestone sessions

Sitter sessions are designed to capture babies from around the age of six months (or can sit unaided) up to around 3 years old.   The session lasts approximately one hour and all props are provided.  You are encouraged to bring along two changes of clothing for the little one and we match the back drop to the clothing brought along. 

Milestone sessions are designed to capture your little one at the different milestone stages of their first year.  The sessions can take place at either 4 months, 8 months and 1 year or 8 months, 1 year and 16 months.  Each session lasts up to one hour in the studio and all props are provided.  From each session you shall receive a free 10x8' mounted print of your choice and 10% off any products purchased from each session.  

Family Sessions

Small family groups and sibling groups are welcomed into the studio for a session lasting up to one hour.   The studio has a choice of back drops to suit your clothing such as pale grey, cream and black for creating some lovely black and white photographs.  Families are encouraged to bring two changes of clothing if they wish and all props/stools are provided.  Please note the studio can only fit smaller families of 4/5 persons at this time.  

Outdoor Family Sessions

Sometimes a studio session isn't what you are looking for, getting outside is what is called for!  Outdoor family sessions are designed to be relaxed and a lot of fun.  Pick a location that is close to you as a family, somewhere you love to go with the kids or walk your family dog and let's take some photos.   Outdoor sessions are great for kids who get bored easily in the studio, getting them outside to explore and run around brings nothing but great photographs!  We agree to meet at a great location, your session will last 1-1.5 hrs.  Being based in Stonehaven we have a number of great locations to choose from and the outcome is always very special.  


I supply commercial photography for small businesses local to the area.   Services are based on an hourly rate of £50 which will include the session time, all post-production editing and immediate digital download from my website.    Past clients include Kip McGrath,  Aberdeen Hypnobirthing, The Nappy Laundry Company, Star Sparks, Anne McLean Massage therapist, Harmony Health and Beauty.

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers are available to purchase from the studio.  Each voucher can be tailored to a particular session type or for an agreed amount.  Please note there are terms and conditions when the vouchers are purchased, for full details please contact me.
