Who we are

Hi, I’m Karolina – the one woman team behind Anilorak Photography. I work from my home studio in Bonnyrigg, near Edinburgh. Here I am with my most special ones – I’m excited to meet you and yours!

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

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 in April 2017. 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!

She 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!
