Capture your precious little bundle
Professional newborn and baby photography in Edinburgh and Midlothian

Natural newborn photography in Edinburgh

The littlest of feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts. When your precious baby is born, everything will change and time will start to fly. Soon she’ll be rolling over, sitting up and starting to crawl. Before you know it, you’ll be wondering how to celebrate his first birthday and which school to choose. But right now, your newborn has the tiniest hands, feet and toes, and perfect little dimples that appear when they smile. 

Allow me to capture this special, fleeting newborn stage by creating beautiful, timeless newborn portraits that you’ll treasure for years to come. As your baby grows, your photographs will be the only thing that will remain timeless. You’ll always be able to look back on those first few hazy days at the beginning of your journey as a parent… I promise they will make you smile!

Newborn photography session

During a newborn photography session, you’ll have the chance to take a moment to pause and soak up just how gorgeous and tiny your baby is. Watch me carefully look after and photograph your most precious bundle, notice their special features, take a step back and realise – you’ve created this little miracle.

As the months and years fly by and your little one grows, you will wonder how is it even possible that they could once fit into your hands so perfectly.  Your memories will fade, but your newborn photography album and the portraits on your walls will always allow you to go back to those first few days and weeks and remember the beginning of your journey as a parent, the beginning of life as you know it now.

Karolina done a newborn photo shoot for our 7 day old baby girl. Karolina is so personable and friendly and makes you feel at ease. Being nervous about posing my little one Karolina’s skill and nature made me so relaxed and I had such an amazing experience. The pictures were beautiful and will be a treasured memory for us as our little grows.

Love our newborn photos so much! The whole experience was great from start to finish. Karolina created a calm and welcoming atmosphere and was amazing with our daughter. The photos are simply beautiful, as are the handmade outfits Karolina made. Could not be happier. Highly recommended.

I was booked a maternity and newborn session with Karolina as a baby shower gift and I loved every minute with her! 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! Not only are you watching your adorable new born in some of his cutest moments but also your getting a wee sit down and a cuppa! I was very impressed with both sets of photos and have the whole lot of them framed on my living room wall! Would highly recommend to anybody looking for a professional, reasonably priced and talented photographer!​

We have used Karolina for newborn and sitting pictures of our little boy. She is so professional and captured his personality perfectly. She has also taken some wonderful pictures of us as a three. Cannot recommend her highly enough and looking forward to using her again in a few months time!

Simple, all-white newborn photography

I strive to capture the simplicity and natural beauty of your baby. Those unique expressions and oh-so-cute yawns, stretches, wrinkles and wriggles stand out beautifully against a white backdrop. I focus on creating beautiful, minimalistic portraits using simple organic colours and soft, natural fabrics.


There’s hardly anything more beautiful than witnessing the blossoming relationship between a parent and their newborn baby – capturing this intimate bond is something you will never regret. All you need to do is snuggle, kiss and cuddle your little one and I’ll take care of the rest.

A calm, relaxed experience

My goal is to create an enjoyable, stress-free experience for you. All newborn photography sessions take place in my fully equipped, warm and welcoming home studio near Edinburgh. It is the perfect home from home environment, where we can take all the time we need. 

Enjoy a cup of tea and rest assured that your baby will be well looked after and handled carefully and safely at all times as I regularly invest in training with the world’s leading newborn photographers and have extensively studied newborn physiology and behaviours. 

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 newborn photographer…

1) To help you remember

Soon your baby won’t fit in your hands as well as they did in those first few weeks. Soon their tiny little feet will grow and the way they curl up and snuggle will be replaced by rolling and sitting. Newborn portraits will capture all these details and help you remember the beginning of your journey together.

2) To help them remember

Give your children an opportunity to look back at their first few weeks and at the start of their life with you. Seeing their portraits around the house will help them grow more confident and develop their sense of belonging too.

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 newborn photography session, but I know of too many people who regret not organising it.

Hi Karolina, We got the disc and are delighted with the pictures – they really are wonderful! Thank you so much and also for such s quick turnaround. I shall definitely be recommending to friends and will no doubt be in touch in the future on further shoots we may like. Thanks again!

Abby Chatham

Hi Karolina, we just wanted to say how delighted we are with the photos. It made us quite emotional looking at them and they look even more amazing in the prints and on a large screen. Every photo just captures him beautifully. Once we have shown them to family we will be sure to put them on Facebook to show them off. Thanks so much again for helping us to capture such special memories.

Laura Scott

Karolina did our newborn photoshoot when our son was 7 days old. I can’t recommend her enough. From arriving at Karolina’s studio to receiving our photographs I was delighted with the whole experience. Karolina is so relaxed and friendly and was brilliant with our newborn son who, as a result of Karolina’s expertise, was so chilled out and slept throughout the shoot. The photographs we received are beautiful and now take pride if place throughout our home. 

Leanne and Bree Campbell

There is no other photographer we would choose other than Karolina!!
She’s captured all of our most special memories starting with our Engagement shoot, followed by Wedding, Maternity and then our little Lottie’s Newborn shoot when she was just over a week old.  Karolina is now 100% our go to photographer and we’ve already planned our next visit.
