How I work

My newborn and baby photography sessions are all about capturing those precious moments of your little one’s journey and telling the story of your family. From newborns to their first birthday, I’ll focus on all those tiny details that make your little one unique. What sets me apart? I use your home as the backdrop, creating a comfortable and familiar setting for your family. Whether at home in Edinburgh or you have a favourite location in mind, I’m up for capturing those candid family moments in a place that’s special to you. Let’s create some memories together!





on location in or around Edinburgh



We had a wonderful experience with Julie from first enquiring, to receiving our photos.

Julie made us feel at total ease, despite being a bit nervous behind the camera! She knew the perfect location and exactly how to make our photos look as natural as family photos could be.

We are so happy with the final gallery. The hardest part of the whole experience has been choosing which photos we want to print! Highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a family photo shoot.





Relaxed baby led sessions in your own home or an Edinburgh location of your choice.  All sessions include 40+ digital images, all edited with my signature edit and presented in a private password protected gallery. Your images will be ready to download within 14 days to your computer, phone or tablet and ready to share.

I also offer a bespoke framing and printing service.


Get in touch via my contact form or drop me an email to check my availability.


Do get in touch if you have any questions

how many images will we receive?

Sessions usually last between 1- 2 hours depending on the age of your little one or any siblings. I aim to deliver 40+ images.  All edited in my signature style and ready to print. Your full gallery will be ready within 14 days and I’ll send you a little ‘sneak peek’ within 48 hours to keep you going!


For warmer months I recommend soft and natural colours, denim and floaty dresses work well too. I’d suggest avoiding black and bright primary colours, bold patterns, stripes, etc as they tend to distract the eye from the subjects. Layers and gentle prints for children are perfect.  For Autumn, chunky knits and layers with colours that complement the rest of the family.

What happens if my child is ill?

Not a problem at all, it happens, I totally understand.  Just let me know and we’ll reschedule.

What happens if it's raining?

Ah Scottish weather! If rain is forecast at the time of our photoshoot I am more than happy to re-schedule! I will be keeping a close eye on the weather forecast in advance of your photo session and if I think we may need to postpone we can schedule in another date.

I'm not that comfortable in front of the camera

I have lots of tricks to put you at ease, you’ll forget I’m holding a camera.  Interacting with your little ones and having fun is what it’s all about.

Can we include Grandparents?

Of course!
