As a family portrait photographer in Edinburgh, I see people have a wide range of questions before, during, and after working with me, so I've tried to answer some of them here. 

If you've still got questions, please get in touch and I'll get back to you right away!

Do you do indoors sessions?

Do you do newborn posing photography?

What time of day do you book your sessions for?

What's a session fee and what does it include?

What is a pre-session consultation?

Do you do weekends?

How do I talk my husband into this?

How do I prepare for our session and what should we wear?

Can we go further afield or do we have to stick to Edinburgh?

I don't live anywhere near you - will you come to us?

What if it rains?

What if the children misbehave and carry on?

I’m really not keen on being photographed. Can you just do the children?

Do we have to pose? I really don’t think I can do anything more than the teapot!

How long does it take?

What can I do myself to make sure everything goes smoothly?

After your session

Can you edit out a scrape on my toddler’s face?

When and how will I see my images?

Do you do colour or black and white?

Who has the rights to the images, and what do you do with them?

I take on a limited number of clients so I can give each of you the very best experience possible, so get in touch with me now so we can talk about how to create your daily reminders of how much love can be found in your family home and the beauty of your everyday life that too often gets forgotten about. 

Now is the time, not sometime, or another time.


I’ve just looked at them … I absolutely LOVE them, they’re my favourite photos that we have EVER had taken. I’ve loved some of the other shoots we’ve had done, but I really think these photos you did are our favourites.You have captured my children so perfectly, thank you so much!

There’s only one word – amazing!!Not only are Donna’s photos amazing, but also the photo shoots. Our kids had a great time, running, jumping, climbing – and Donna is happy to go with the flow and catch the kids’ own specific characters because of this! An absolutely great experience from start to finish – the girls enjoyed it and the pictures are just stunning! The photos really capture our girls’ personalities and I just love the natural surroundings.Donna was amazing working with the girls. They are quite lively, but she kept them entertained and engaged. The girls had so much fun! If you are looking for natural photos of your children, I couldn’t recommend Donna any more highly.
