Hello and welcome

So lovely to see you here! I’m Karolina, the one woman team that runs Anilorak Photography. I take gorgeous newborn and family photos here in Edinburgh.

My specialty is maternity, family and newborn photography and I mainly work from my home photography studio in Bonnyrigg, Midlothian. 

If you love white, simple, timeless portraits that focus on people and emotions rather than the props, you will love working with me!


Here I am with my most special ones – I’m excited to meet you and yours!

Why choose anilorak Photography?

Timeless photography you will love

Simple white backgrounds and the focus on your family relationships and connections is what I strive to capture in your portraits. Your little ones will grow, change and eventually move out, but your newborn and family portraits will remain timeless and will forever remind you of how little and precious they once were.

Experienced photographer you trust

With over 10 years experience, I have photographed hundreds of newborns and families just like yours. You can rest assured that your little one is always in the safe hands, because I regularly invest in most up to date training. I am also a mum to two beautiful boys, so I understand the worries, anxiety and excitement you are feeling.

Highly recommended by other parents

Feel nervous about your newborn photoshoot? Trusted by many parents just like you, I truly care about you, your baby and your special memories. Professional and personal, caring and respectful, warm and supportive - these are just some of the words my lovely clients use to describe their experience with me as their photographer.

What clients say

From arriving at Karolina’s studio to receiving our photographs I was delighted with the experience. Karolina was brilliant with our newborn. The photographs we received are beautiful and now take pride of place
throughout our home.

Karolina is a baby whisperer who managed to get fantastic newborn photos of my 5 week old girl when many others would have given up past the 2-3 week mark. She is lovely to work with and clearly passionate about
what she does.

Highly recommend Karolina for a newborn photo shoot. The session was extremely professional yet incredibly relaxed. The pictures are beautifully natural and tastefully done. Couldn’t be happier and offers real
value for money.

What clients say

brother with newborn baby in the basket posing ideas newborn photography edinburgh
After much research I decided to choose Karolina to take my newborn pictures and I am so glad I did. A very relaxed atmosphere in her home studio and some great shots captured. Not only that, Karolina took the time to find out the interests of my 2 year old son and printed him pictures to colour when we were there. This meant for a wonderful experience all round. Thank you
! Can’t wait for
our next session

Gorgeous pictures, outstanding service. We booked for a newborn/ family session. Karolina provided a very warm and welcoming environment. She was very accommodating for our 3yo too. We ended up getting a number of good pictures which was quite surprising given the chaos that our toddler created on the session and the natural difficulties presented by a newborn.
Would recommend her
every time!

Karolina is a highly talented and professional photographer as well as a genuinely lovely lady! She made me feel very comfortable and her studio is cosy and relaxed. I took my son for his photoshoot at 3 weeks old and I was amazed at how brilliant she was with him! I was expecting to have to change his positions and handle him myself however from the second she began shooting she took over and I was told to sit back and enjoy my coffee – bliss!
