I met Rachel at the NCT Aberdeen Bumper Bump Club a few months ago, so I was super excited to go and meet the new addition to the family, Beth. Along with four legged baby Jaffa, we had a lovely morning of snuggles and dog cuddles and here’s just a few images from their session
‘Don’t marry the first Scottish man you meet Jessie’, her family warned as she jetted from America to Scotland. She didn't marry the first, but she sure did the second, and what a wedding it was. On the hottest day of the year, with the gorgeous backdrop of Aswanley, Jessie and Cameron tied the knot in a wedding full of fun, food, dancing and running barefoot through a field or two! I feel so, so lucky to have been a part of it - thank you so much for having me!

Babies, babies, everywhere! Baby B treated me to lots of lovely cuddles and was as cute as a button for his newborn session last month - I couldn't stop swooning over his hair! Here's just a little look at his session -
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?
J+C got married at the beautiful Aswanley estate in Glass, near Huntly, back in May and it was glorious - the sun shone, the food by Val Morrison was AMAZING, and there was happy, smiley people all around. I love all the weddings I shoot, but we really did have the best time with these guys! Here's just a little look at some of the moments from their day

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!
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 -
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!

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 -
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.
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
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
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
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.
