Newborn Photography in Aberdeen - Baby George

And just like that, the summer holidays are over! I've had an epic summer of weddings, newborn sessions and lots of fun with my own two little ones. The return to school means a bit more time to catch up on blogging, and I'm starting with the oh so gorgeous George! I met his mum Faye for an at home maternity session, and we didn't have long to wait to meet baby G. Here's just a few images from his newborn session - isn't he delicious?

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER ABERDEEN - BABY O

It's always an honour to be allowed in to clients homes to photograph their beautiful new babies, and even more so when that tiny little human is the brand new daughter of your friend/kickass photographer Emma Lawson. I popped up one sunny afternoon to capture Baby Ottilie with her mum and dad - here's wee peek at their session! 

If you're due August to January, I'd love to discuss your bespoke, baby led session at home with you - you can pop me a message here or read a little more about my newborn sessions here

FAMILY SESSION ABERDEEN - FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER IN ABERDEEN

We had the perfect day for a lovely indoor/outdoor family session with the McCarry family - the sun was shining and little Iona was feeling happy to show me round her neighbourhood, with a little walk round Hazlehead before settling in for some more photos in the cutest spot just behind their house! Indoor/outdoor sessions are perfect if your baby isn't walking, or if you just prefer to stay a bit closer to home! Here's a wee peek at their gallery - 

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN ABERDEEN - BABY E

Aberdeen has been experiencing a baby boom these past few months, and I have had an amazing time meeting so many gorgeous new families and getting to spend some time photographing them in their homes! Theanna and David were referred to me by a mutual photographer friend for their newborn session, and I caught up with them a few weeks after baby Ellie made her early arrival in to the world. Both sets of grandparents had flown over the Atlantic to meet her, and it was extra special to be able to capture some moments with them as well. Here's just a little sneak peek from their gallery - 

This was pretty much Ellie's first thought of me - B O R I N G! 

If you are looking for a newborn photographer in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire, I'd love to hear from you. My sessions are relaxed, baby led and very natural - I capture you and your family, just as you are. Having worked with hundreds of families, your baby is in safe hands - find out more information here or email me here

ABERDEEN NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY - BABY OLIVIA

Back in April, I was delighted to catch up with Louise and her beautiful new baby daughter, Olivia. Louise and I actually went to school together, back when I lived up near Keith, so it was especially lovely to see her and her gorgeous new family. Baby Olivia was a complete star and snoozed for the duration - she obviously knew I wasn't worth opening my eyes for! Here's a few images from their session - 

SAMMY + NEALE - DURN HOUSE WEDDING, MORAYSHIRE

Back in March, I took Nicola on an adventure with me up to Portsoy for the wedding of Sammy and Neale at Durn House. After an interesting drive from Aberdeen through a blizzard or two, we were very happy to find that the winter sun was shining! The beautiful bride, Sammy, is the little sister of one of my closest friends, so I was super excited to be sharing their day with them. Joined by Nick from NL Visuals, we had a great time documenting Sammy and Neale's beautiful wedding. They were very brave and up for photos outside, despite the artic temperatures (even I had to resort to a coat!), but we soon returned to the cosy interior of Durn House to thaw and get ready for speeches and dancing. 

Here's just a small look at their day - Sammy really was the most stunning, glamorous bride! Neale scrubbed up not too bad either, with their gorgeous niece Chloe rocking a serious dose of cute too.

LUCIA - NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN ABERDEENSHIRE

After a gorgeous outdoor maternity session the week before Lucia made her appearance in the world, I couldn't wait to head out to her parent's Inverurie home to photograph them all settling in as a family. I adore newborn sessions - and the connection I quickly build with you means that I can tell your family story in heartfelt and beautiful way. Lucia's mum wanted to capture their breastfeeding relationship, and it was an honour to document it for them - you'll see a sneak peek of their full gallery below. 

My newborn sessions are bespoke, and completely tailored to the needs of your family - they are relaxed, natural and totally baby led. With lots of time for cuddles, feeds and a cup of tea, it will feel more like a morning spent cuddling your baby than a photo shoot. You can find out more information about my newborn sessions here

PENELOPE - NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN ABERDEEN

I met Emma and her gorgeous family for a maternity session a few weeks ago, and we didn't have to wait long for bump to become baby, as baby Penelope made her appearance a few days later. We had such a lovely morning, with lots of cuddles for baby Penelope and the best big sister Abi keeping an eye on proceedings! Here's just a small selection from their newborn gallery! 

My spaces for summer are nearly full, so I'd love to hear from you soon to talk about your newborn session at home to avoid disappointment. You can pop me an email here.

I am currently booking right through to October, so it's never too early to get in touch! You can read more about my newborn sessions in this blog post

 

MONTE - FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY IN ABERDEEN

Photographing toddlers is lots of fun, and Monte was no exception. I joined Monte and his parents at their beautiful Aberdeen home, and got we got right down to playing, watering plants and having a giggle. After a little while, we headed across to Old Aberdeen for a little wander and the opportunity to get some outdoor images. Indoor/outdoor sessions are great for older babies and young children, as it gives them plenty of time to relax and forget the camera is even there. You can view more of my family portfolio here, and if you would like candid and relaxed images of your family, I'd love to hear from you 

Aberdeen Newborn Photographer - Baby Aidan

Baby Aidan kept his mum and dad waiting for his arrival, but I didn't have to wait too long to meet him and photograph this gorgeous family at home. Aidan kept us on our toes, and you can tell from these images that there is more than a hint of mischief in this little squish. Here's just a few images from their gallery - my summer availability is very limited due to booked in newborns and weddings, so if you're looking for relaxed and natural newborn photography at home, I'd love to hear from you. You can find more information about my sessions + packages here

Baby Josephine - Aberdeen Newborn Photography

BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL AND RELAXED - NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN ABERDEEN

 

Beautiful baby Josephine and her gorgeous mama Morag responded to model call on Facebook last month, and their session was just perfection. 

"Vivienne came to our home to shoot a newborn session after I'd volunteered for a model call. I'd never met Vivienne but from the minute she came into our home it felt like having an old friend come to visit. She made it a relaxed and fun experience for all of us, even my huffy 2 year old! She caught some wonderful natural moments and was happy to wait when my daughter needed fed or changed. The photos are absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't be happier with them! I couldn't recommend Vivienne highly enough. My only regret is not having booked a session for my first born! Thank you!"

Capturing those special little details was a big part of this session - I adore Josephine's tiny hand resting on her mama's chest. And those lips - what a pout! I really wanted to celebrate just how amazing women's bodies are with this session, and Morag bravely bared her belly, less than two weeks after welcoming baby Josephine in to the world. 

In my sessions, I always aim to capture images that make your heart swell when you see them, the sort of images that I would have loved to have when my two were newborns. Sometimes the first few weeks are such a whirlwind, that you forget to just sit, and soak in that gorgeous newborn smell. Morag was more than happy to relax and breathe in her baby while I captured them together.

Josephine is lucky to have a very handsome and doting older brother, and watching the hearts of siblings grow right in front of your eyes is just amazing.

And there's always time for some cuddles with Daddy - I might have even more of an obsession with baby hands than I do with baby feet! 

My at home sessions are available in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, and I'm now booking right through to September. Summer availability is limited and booking up fast - if you'd like to secure your newborn session with me, I'd love for you to get in touch!  You can find more information about newborn sessions here.

Baby G - Family and Newborn Photography, Aberdeen

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY AT HOME, ABERDEEN

One of the best parts about an at home newborn session is easily being able to incorporate the whole family in to the shoot, without any stress or pressure, especially on the younger members of the clan! I had a lovely morning spent with the Fotheringhams in the west end of Aberdeen, celebrating the arrival of their beautiful new daughter, who was being doted on by her big proud sister. Here's just a few images from their session (may take a moment to load - give it a second if they don't appear immediately)
