Anilorak Photography

with an at home or outdoor family photography session

Create and capture timeless memories with your family
in Edinburgh and Midlothian

Natural, relaxed, timeless portraits

Do you feel intimidated by studio lighting and being told what to do in front of a camera but still want to capture special memories in beautiful portraits? Then a lifestyle family portrait photography session is perfect for you! It’s a wonderful way to enjoy time with your loved ones, watch your children play and get some beautiful photographs in return. Together we will create a variety of heartfelt, timeless portraits that you can proudly display in your home and cherish for generations.

This will be a fun session where I will guide you towards the most beautiful light and flattering angles. I’ll make suggestions, tell silly jokes and generally help you laugh and relax.

Outdoor Family Photography

With an outdoor family photography session my aim is to capture connections, the natural smiles and create emotionally rich portraits. We are blessed with an abundance of stunning locations around Edinburgh and the Lothians including beautiful beaches, woodland parks and open fields – there’s a setting to suit everyone. You can choose a favourite outdoor location that is special to your family, or I can recommend some beautiful spots. 

This type of session is perfect if you’d also like to include pets or extended family. It’s an opportunity to capture a variety of individual and group portraits – of cousins, parents, grandparents and of course that important heirloom family portrait of everyone together.

Different seasons means different overall look of your portraits:

Spring will result in light, airy portraits with beautiful blossoms and blue skies. 

Summer sessions take place in the evening to capture that beautiful golden hour. 

Autumn photography sessions will result in richer, darker tones and the vibrant colours of the season.

Winter portraits will be more neutral in colour and give a cosy feel as you will be wrapped up warm.

Let’s talk about your favourite time of year and your favourite locations and create beautiful portraits that will perfectly complement your home.

At Home Lifestyle Family Photography

If your home is where you feel the most comfortable and relaxed, then choose an at home lifestyle family photography session in Edinburgh and the Lothians. I will come to you and we will create cosy, natural, heart warming and storytelling portraits for you to cherish forever. I will direct you towards the most beautiful available light and all you’ll have to do is snuggle up and share the love! 

Choosing your portraits

After your session, I will select and retouch your portraits and invite you back to the studio to view them. I will guide you through selecting your favourite moments and together  we will design the perfect products for you – choose from beautiful keepsake albums and custom wall art that compliments the interior of your home.

Three reasons why

you should hire a family photographer….

1) To bring your family closer together

A family photoshoot is a wonderful way to get together, slow down and reconnect while I create gorgeous timeless portraits for you. Life is busy. Take a chance to go on a very special family adventure and receive wonderful heirloom portraits that will tell your family’s story in return.

2) To show your children that they matter

Children who grow up surrounded by their family portraits develop a rich understanding of where they come from and grow up with greater confidence and sense of belonging than those that don’t. By displaying photographs of your children at different stages of their lives, you are making a very public statement that you are proud of them.

3) You will regret it if you don't

This one is as simple as that. I don’t know anyone who regrets having a professional family  photoshoot, but I know of too many people who regret not organising it.
