Mummy and Me Photography in Edinburgh

You and your little one have shared a very special connection since before your baby was born and your journey together as mother and child will bring so many future moments of joy, tears, challenges and happiness. But right now, you’re still at the beginning of it all – your baby is small enough to curl up in your arms, to be cradled, nursed and cuddled.


My goal is to capture your beautiful bond and loving connection in the most natural way. Together we will create gorgeous, timeless portraits that will mean so much to both of you in years to come. 

Breastfeeding photography in edinburgh and midlothian

Breastfeeding can be a little or a big part of a mum and baby photography session. It’s beautiful and intimate and the comfort, food, protection and love that nursing mamas provide needs to be celebrated!



During the photoshoot I will gently direct you towards the most flattering light and do my best to make you feel comfortable and relaxed – you will soon forget that I’m even there and that’s when I will capture the most beautiful, natural portraits.

What clients say

​Karolina was very easy to work with. My baby and I enjoyed the experience and I was very happy with the results, getting a good range of lovely shots with some beautiful colour tones as well as black and white pictures. Overall I would recommend her services as a photographer.

Karolina created stunning images of me and my baby boy. They are beautiful and natural and all I had to do was be with my baby and she captured moments that I can treasure forever. She made me feel very relaxed and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Karolina!

Absolutely loved our photos from our Breastfeeding photography session- Karolina made us so relaxed and captured the special relationship I have with my daughter so well. I well up every time I look at the photos and I’m so glad I have such a beautiful memento
to keep forever.


Mummy and Me photography sessions take place outdoors during the warmer months of the year – we are blessed with such a variety of natural settings around Edinburgh and across the Lothians. 


The flower meadows, woodlands, rivers and beaches are perfect for that romantic fairy tale look. But there is also beauty in urban scenery, so if the city centre is where you feel at home – let’s photograph you there.

Three reasons why you should hire
a mum and baby/breastfeeding photographer…

One: Its a time like no other

There really is hardly anything more special than a bond that a mother shares with her child. The way you connect, the nurture, comfort and nourishment your body provides to them, the connection that no one else knows the depths of, which is why it deserves to be cherished, celebrated and preserved in beautiful photographs.

Two: Those memories will fade

Time goes by, life keeps going, children grow. The way you feel in the special moments of connection with your little one right now, the way they curl up to you and depend on you will soon change to ‘Stop embarrassing me mum!’ and ‘No, I don’t want cuddles!’. But I can help you remember and make time stand still right now, in beautiful, heartfelt portraits you will treasure for many years to come.

Three: 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 mummy and me/breastfeeding photography session, but I know of too many people who regret not organising it.
