Information you should know about baby photoshoots in our studio.
Meet your baby photographer. Armands runs Edinburgh based photo studio.
I’m a father. A husband and owner of busy photography studio and photographer for past 8 years. Privileged to meet many beautiful babies and have a fun time crawling, making funny noises while taking care of the baby photography you will smile at.
I know what it’s like to be a parent. I know what it’s like to be exhausted, yet deliriously happy. I know what it’s like to have my greatest accomplishments in this world throw their spaghetti across the kitchen, and still feel completely and truly blessed.
And sometimes, when there’s a skinned knee or a scary dream, and you are their only safe haven in an otherwise big scary world, I realise that…
I was a little hesitant as my son is a little nervous around new people but within a few minutes Armands had him giggling. He is a natural with children and we all felt at ease instantly. I chose Armands again as his quality of work is far better than anyone else i have seen. I knew i would not be disappointed with these photos. He is not afraid to get silly, on all fours messing around to get the perfect shot. Armands knows all the tricks in the book to get past any difficulties. I cant recommend him highly enough, i wouldn't use anyone else!

Baby Photoshoots Options. Baby photography at home or outdoors.
Baby photo sessions can take place in your home, where little one is surrounded by the things that make them happy and comfortable. Or, we could go to your family’s favourite park, the beach, or even the local petting zoo–any place in Edinburgh or nationwide that is special and comfortable to all of you and particularly for your baby and baby photoshoot!
Of course my baby photography studio is always available for shoots if you just can’t decide on another venue! Then, the fun begins, and I’m an old pro at getting my little ones to smile, and will put all my Dad expertise to work to get your little baby smiling!

Babies (4 month to 12 months)? When to do session.
If you have missed newborn stage photos, or simply contemplating when is the best time to photograph the next milestone, I would recommend to contact me and have a chat first. Every baby develops differently. I have photographed many ranges from 4 month and up. It all depends how baby is doing and what he can do at that particular stage.
It is easier to photograph when you baby is sitting up unattended. This is normally from around 6 months. But don't get hang up on this, just contact me and we can have a chat. If your baby is closer to around 9 month stage, maybe have a think about doing cake smash photography session instead. A lot more fun, read about photo sessions here.
FAQ about Baby Sessions.
Do You Have Props for Baby Photos.
We do have props here at the studio, but often parents like to bring some personal items and mementos to the shoot that hold some sentimental value. So if you have a little stuffed teddy from auntie, or a favourite blanket, please feel free to bring them along.
What If My Baby is Unwell.
If your little bairn falls sick, they are not going to want to be photographed, and no amount of cajoling will help. I completely understand! If I were under the weather, I would feel the exact same way. So, if your little one becomes unwell within a week of your photo shoot, just contact me and we will choose an alternate time when baby will be at their smiling and giggling best.
What To Wear
By now you’ll have an extensive wardrobe of baby clothes. Stick to plain and simple – not patterns. Bring hats and toys to accessorise. We also have outfits in the studio which you can borrow. You can have several changes, but remember babies soon get tired of being changed.
Let older siblings wear what they want – if that’s a ballerina tutu or superman outfit, then go for it! It’s about being natural and comfortable. We’re looking to capture their personality and the way they naturally interact with the newest member of the family.
For family photos, please see the family photography section.
We were recommended A-Fotografy by a number of people in Edinburgh and we were not disappointed!! We wanted some pictures that captured our little boys who is now 9 months as he just seems to be growing up so quickly! We wanted natural pictures with him just having fun and showing his personality. Armands was really fantastic with my son! I have to admit I was a bit worried about how we would entertain him for an hour and a half in front of a camera but Armands is brilliant with children! I was waiting for a bored baby meltdown but Armands just made him giggle the entire time which made for some great pics! Super easy to view and pic your products and real value for money! Armands is great at recommending and helping you choose your product. We went for a digital copies and we choose a frame with a number of pics to be printed as we knew we wouldn’t do anything with a USB!! At this stage he really exceeded my expectations – he is helping us ensure that the frame looks good on our wall and helping us to choose the right pictures to complement our house!!! So impressed! I really wish now I had asked him for a maternity picture!!! Brilliant, professional service!! Would highly recommend him to anyone. Will definitely be returning for the cake smash!!!

How Much It Costs
This probably is one of your big burning questions. I’m always honest and open about finance topic. There are no hidden surprise fees, in fact everything is made very simple and clear to understand. Every family has its own budget in mind, and I can talk you through all the details about prices and products once I have had a chance to meet you and hear about your vision for your event. Yes, I meet every family beforehand to explain everything and answer any questions. So the planning process can start and there won’t be any confusion down the line.

How it works.
You would have up to 30 minute session with me. Since session is shorter then my regular session, we have less control of what baby could do during this time. It is more ideal for confident babies who don’t need much settling in time. We straight away start and get photos done.
Straight after the session we would sit down and have a look at photos and choose our favourites. You would be presented with my mini sessions pricing. Packages start from £125. Each package has various amount of digital files. Please call studio on 07850209999 to discuss further.
