Relaxed lifestyle portrait shoots that capture a beautiful photo story


Lifestyle portrait shoots are all about capturing a moment in your life with a beautiful photo story. In other words, relaxed reportage style portraits that catch you at your most natural and when you’re not really thinking about the camera.

Oooh aye, I’ll set some gorgeous shots up of you too. But for the most part, a lifestyle portrait shoot is candid and fun to give you images full of real moments and reactions. 

Images that will capture some of the normal things you do into lovely memories. Perhaps you have a favourite cafe you go to every Sunday. Or, maybe you and your friends climb a hill every now and then. Or, maybe you enjoy wind surfing. Ok, I’ll photograph that from the shore but you get the picture.

A lifestyle portrait shoot is about celebrating your everyday and giving you beautiful memories of a time in your life.

Images you will love for years to come

You know the portraits you love. They are the ones that capture genuine expressions. The ones that bring moments back to life and give you all those warm and lovely fuzzy feelings.

Your hair may be all over the place and your shoelaces undone, but you're embraced in a moment and that's what makes the image special. What makes you love it.

That is lifestyle portrait photography. It’s about capturing genuine images of you doing something you love in a beautiful reportage style, giving you images you will love for years to come.

Who is it for

A lifestyle photo session is for anyone, anywhere at anytime. It can be, but doesn't have to be for a special occasion. A lifestyle photo shoot is about celebrating the everyday and documenting a moment in your life with a beautiful photo story.

It's for couples, individuals and friends of all ages. It's for the moments and people in your life that make it special.

Whether you want to toast marshmallows over a bon fire with your besties, take a wander around beautiful Edinburgh or enjoy an ice-cream on the seaside, my camera and I will come with you!

The How It Works!

How to book a lifestyle shoot

To book a relaxed lifestyle shoot with me, simply drop me an email and we'll find you a date!

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 photography shoot.

Where we shoot

Your lifestyle photo session can take place anywhere that is special to you. In your home, on the beach, in the city's hustle and bustle or anywhere else where you enjoy spending time alone, with your partner or with your friends.

If you're visiting Edinburgh and would like a photo story of your visit to our beautiful city, get in touch and I'll be glad to recommend some great photography spots for your visit.

What to wear

When it comes to clothing my recommendation is always to wear something comfortable. Being comfortable is key to feeling relaxed, enjoying your shoot and allowing those natural shots to happen.

Don't worry though, I understand that you also want to look your best. So I will send you my recommended "do's and don'ts" prior to your shoot to help you choose an outfit that will make you both look and feel great.

What to bring

Depending on where we go and what we do for your shoot, you might want to bring a few props along. This is entirely optional, but props can be really great.

For example, if we're out and about, why not bring a blanket and a hot flask of coffee. Or, if it's a windy day and we're on the beach, bring a kite, or your wetsuits! Anything goes and I promise you it will make for a fun photo session.

Your Photo Shoot

On the day of your photo shoot, I will work with a friendly and informal approach to capture you at your most relaxed. I will of course help you with a wee bit of posing here and there, but my aim is always to capture your natural expressions and interactions. Not the poses!

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 images

Your images will be ready to view ca 2-3 weeks after your photo session, so keep your eyes on your inbox for an email with a link to your online gallery!

From here you'll be able to view, download and share your images with your family and friends. Soon after, you will also receive your Photo USB with your images in both high-resolution and web-size, fully edited and ready to print and share to your hearts content!
