Relaxed family photography that captures real moments

You know the family photographs you love. They’re the ones that catch a feeling. Images that capture you and your family all embraced in a moment. Your hair might be all over the place. You might have mud on your boots and your kids chocolate all over their faces, but you’re happy. Perfect. That there, to me, describes the perfect family photograph.

Family photography is about freezing moments in time. It’s about capturing all of you exactly as you are on an ordinary day. 

You will have hundreds, if not thousands of family images on your phone. But, with one of you always behind the lens, photographs of all you together may be far between. This is where I come in.

TESTIMONIAL

We had such a fun day on our family shoot with Malin, and it really shows in the images she captured of us all. There was no posing, and no worrying about getting the children to behave a certain way, which was a big relief! Malin’s style is so easy and unintrusive that it didn’t feel like a photo shoot at all. She captured us just as we were, enjoying a walk in the hills, relaxed and happy. These are some of our favourite images of our family which we will treasure forever.

Family photography full of life

This is family photography that is all about genuine moments. It's about real laughter and expressions. Family cuddles, playing together and the best part, not having to sit still or smile on cue!

Oooh aye, I will set some shots up of you all together too. But for the most part, I will encourage running about and having a great time together.

The best family photographs are always those that are full of life. That has a sparkle. How do we get them? We have fun!

How it works

How to book a family shoot

To book a fun and relaxed family shoot with me, simply fill in my contact form and get in touch!

We'll have a chat about what you're looking for and put a date in our diaries.

A £75 booking fee is payable upon booking, along with signing my booking form to secure your session on your chosen date. The remaining balance is due 1 week prior to your family shoot.

The location for your shoot

Your family session can take place anywhere you like and where you enjoy spending time as a family.

This can be at your home or at an outdoor location, such as a favourite park or the beach.

If you're not sure where you would like your photos taken, I will happily send some suggestions. Edinburgh and its surrounding areas are full of lovely photo locations.

What to wear

The best clothes you can wear for you family shoot are without a doubt comfortable ones. Particularly for your kids. Itchy jumpers or stiff clothing no matter how great they look, will hold you back from feeling relaxed, enjoying your shoot and getting the best from your photographs. Which, is what it's all about!

Don't worry though. I will send you all my top tips for picking your family's outfits that make you all both look and feel good.

What to bring

It's always a good idea to bring snacks, water bottles, changes of clothes and anything else you need to keep everyone happy!

Why not also bring a blanket, some bubbles or other props for your shoot. Well behaved four legged friends are also more than welcome (if our location allow pets).

Your family shoot

On the day of your shoot, I will work with a very informal and relaxed approach to help you all feel at ease in front of the camera. It'll be a fun experience and you'll get some lovely new photos of your family!

What if it rains I hear you ask? Don't worry, if the weather isn't on our side, we can switch to a home session, find an alternative date or layer up and brave the elements!

Your family photographs will be ready ca. 2 weeks after your shoot, so look out for an email with a link to your gallery!
