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 -
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
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)

No family is perfect, and as a photographer, it's the perfectly imperfect moments that I love capturing most. The cheeky grins, giggles, twirls, jumps, stick finding, leaf throwing, rounds of peekaboo, and shrieks of laughter as your children run in the completely opposite direction to my camera are what makes a session special. I want you to remember it as a lovely few hours spent with the ones you love, rather than an experience to be endured!
This was my third time capturing the Farthing family, and I just wanted to show you a handful of their 'perfectly imperfect' moments
Family sessions are available all year round - if you'd like to book yours or gift a voucher, then you can contact me here
The NCT mini session photo fundraiser event is such good fun! I love meeting lots of lovely new families, and getting the opportunity to photograph some existing clients again, knowing that the images we create are often Christmas gifts. I took the mini sessions to my home town of Culter this year, and it served as the perfect backdrop for giggly smiles and mischief making. Thank you to all the families who take up these slots every year - they help raise vital funds for the Aberdeen branch, meaning they can do more awesome work supporting local parents.
Here's just a little glimpse of what we got up to!
You might remember the beautiful baby Rose as a teeny tiny newborn on the blog earlier this year. I had the pleasure of going back to visit the gorgeous Woodward family as they prepared for the very exciting occasion of Rose turning 1. We started at their home in Bridge of Don, before heading over to a chilly but beautiful Scotstown Moor for some outdoor shots, where Rose's grandparents (and their super cute dog) joined us! Here's just a few images from their session
I shoot outdoor sessions all year round - you don't need to wait for 'good' weather to get your family portraits taken! And if the weather is really against us, then an at home session, no matter how old your baby or child, can be the perfect solution. I'd love to chat - pop me a message!
Oh it's been quiet here, I am sorry! September/October was a super busy time, and I've neglected my poor old blog. .But, I'm looking forward to showing you lots of gorgeous images, starting with this beautiful threesome who came to see me as part of the NCT Aberdeen Photo Fundraiser event! Every year, local photographers help to raise money to help support local parents across the region, and it's always really popular, with slots selling out in less than 2 hours this year! Thank you to everyone who purchased a slot, which helped the branch raise hundreds for their support groups and services
Beautiful baby Emily and her handsome big brother Henry - these two will make your heart melt!
Amber and her gorgeous mama joined me for a mini session a few weeks ago, and I couldn't resist sharing just the teeniest of peeks with you!
Now is the perfect time to book your summer session - I have limited availability throughout July and August so pop me an email to secure your space!
Luke and his baby sister were meant to come and see me at the NCT Aberdeen photo fundraiser sessions, but unfortunately the weather got the better of us. Thankfully our second attempt along the railway line in Peterculter was far more successful, and I thought I'd share a wee snippet from their session with you all! (check who has gotten so big since I did her newborn session!)
We just about managed to avoid the rain for our NCT Aberdeen Photo Fundraiser Mini Session day at the end of February, but it did catch up with me in the end! But it was lovely to meet and photograph 11 amazing families, and Jack's mum has given me permission to share these images with you ahead of Mothers Day! Jack was just the absolute cutest - I mean look at that smile! How could you resist such a gorgeous face? No matter what the Aberdeen weather was up too, this little man had smiles aplenty.
I thought it quite fitting that I would blog beautiful baby Alexandra's session on International Women's Day. Her mum Ruth is one of my most intelligent, witty and funny friends, who is completely owning this being a mum of 3 malarkey!
Alexandra is super lucky to have two gorgeous big brothers and I can already tell she is going to have them working for her, ganging up against Mummy soon enough!
I was delighted to spend a quiet morning just us girls, photographing R+A as they enjoyed some cuddles and milk, more cuddles, a bit more milk, another cuddle or two, with a cup of tea thrown in as well. I always go at the babies pace, meaning both mum and baby stay as relaxed as possible - Alexandra gave us some amazing awake expressions but soon nodded off snuggled up close to her mum
Here's just a small selection of images from their session -
