Mini Newborn Photoshoot in Edinburgh will allow you to still have some gorgeous portraits of your baby at their tiniest, without investing in a full newborn session.

 Suitable for babies up to 8/10 weeks old, mini newborn session:


  • Includes a phone consultation to plan your session
  • Takes only around 45min-1h
  • Can be for baby only or include your whole family
  • Zoom viewing to save you time
  • 5 digital images included
  • Options to add more digitals, prints or wall art

All of the above for just


“Karolina is amazing at what she does. We had such a lovely experience with our newborn photoshoot. Her images are fantastic quality and I will definitely be back for my little ones 1st birthday!”

Choose from baby only – wrapped in a prop, or family option which will feature a mix of images of parents and/or siblings with baby.


During the mini session we will follow your baby’s rhythm and photograph your baby awake or asleep as long as they are calm and settled. 

I will swaddle your baby beautifully or photograph them in a simple white onesie and we will focus on creating 5 beautiful portraits for you.


Simple white backdrop and natural posing means your images will forever remain classic and timeless. 


Mini newborn session is truly a wonderful way to capture a few key portraits of this exciting time in your life!

”We had a mini newborn session with our 9 week old baby. Karolina was friendly yet professional and instantly put us at ease. She handled our baby girl with incredible care and attended to her every need during the shoot. We adore the photos! Thank you so much!”

How is a Mini newborn photography session different from the
Full newborn photography session?

During the mini newborn session we work with your baby as they are – as long as they are calm, I will swaddle and photograph them. We don’t need to wait until they fall asleep! 


Taking only 45min-1h, a mini session allows you to have a few key portraits that we will specifically shoot for. 


Less variety of images to choose from than from the full newborn session.


No posing table images are included, choose a full newborn session if you love the look of them! These poses are only possible with a a baby who is deeply asleep, which requires more time.


Wrapped only images, no naked/semi naked poses. We can either bundle wrap your baby or leave hands/feet visible, depending on their flexibility and mood!


No intricate posing such as on the tummy as this requires a deeply asleep baby.


Zoom viewing instead of an in person viewing appointment, saving time for all of us.


Mini session is cheaper than a full newborn photoshoot due to the reasons stated above.
