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!
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.

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
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.

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.
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)

Oh Archie. My first baby of 2018 was a deliciously squishy gorgeous baby boy called Archie, who is very lucky to have two wonderful big sisters to take care of him. His lovely mama is a little bit of a superwoman - she was even out volunteering for the Aberdeen branch of NCT when Archie was just over a week old! Here's just a sneak peek of their at home newborn session, and some lovely words from Emma
"What a lovely, relaxed time we had during our little boys newborn photo shoot. Vivienne captured real life moments with our wee boy and his big sisters. I am so pleased with the finished photos and these will be a great reminder of the early days of Archie’s life. Precious memories."
Expecting a 2018 baby? I'd love to hear from you - get in touch here
2017 was an absolute blast for me! Weddings, babies, and families galore - I have enjoyed photographing each and every one, and feel really honoured that you all trusted me with your most special moments. Looking back over my images from last year has been a total rollercoaster of emotions - laughter, tears and ALL.THE.FEELS. If you aren't pregnant and are in any way broody, you maybe shouldn't watch this video - there is an abundance of squishy goodness within.
I'm taking bookings for relaxed baby led newborn sessions at home in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire from now right through to July due dates. If you'd like to find out a little bit more, you can pop me an email and we can chat about your session!
Not only did this beautiful new squish have their newborn session at home, but she arrived in to the world at home too - isn't that amazing? She was so lucky to have not only her mum and dad doting on her, but her gorgeous big sister and grandmother too. I had a lovely morning with them all (there was cake and if there's one way to make me happy, then cake is it) and absolutely adore their images. There were so many beautiful moments while they just enjoyed normal family life.
My newborn sessions aren't about props, or posing, or fancy backdrops, because your family is unique and special, just the way you are.
I am booking right through to spring 2018 at the moment, so if you're Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire based and expecting a baby, I would love to talk to you.
Ok, enough waffling from me, here's a small selection of images from their newborn session!
Oh me, oh my, little Jack was just the cutest. I had photographed big brother Callum last year and it was lovely to see the family again, especially because not only was there a beautiful new baby to photograph, but lots of upcoming wedding chat to be had as well!
My newborn photography style is really relaxed and natural, and sessions should feel like a morning spent cuddling your baby, rather than a photo shoot. I just document you and your family as you get to know your brand new squish - those little moments that are so special, but pass in the blink of an eye. If you're expecting, I'd love to chat and hear more about your impending arrival - you can email me here
Here's just a little peek at their newborn at home session last month
Beautiful baby Emily and her handsome big brother Henry - these two will make your heart melt!
This little love was a star for her session, and snuggled in close to her Mum, Dad and big brother for lots of lovely cuddles while I photographed their family moments. Lifestyle newborn photography sessions, in the comfort of your own home, where you can just relax with your baby, are one of my most favourite things to shoot. I am incredibly lucky to have such wonderful clients who allow me to come and capture them, at this most special and life changing time!

I had the pleasure of photographing Nathaniel's mum Penelope in the very last few weeks of her pregnancy, so I was especially excited to go back and meet him - especially after his super speedy arrival in to the world at home! He was a super chilled little man, and I had a great time with him and his gorgeous big brother too. Here's just a few images from his session -
