I'm a Dorota, Edinburgh based family & newborn photographer who LOVES to explore. My family and I love getting outside, going on trips and going camping. I'm not one for anything superposed so what you see is real raw moments. I like adventure and challenges.

I love road trips. You'll find everything in my car as we are always on the road, looking for new routes and new adventure.

Capturing Memories

I take photographs of real families, like yours.

So many people show up stressed out for a photoshoot. This is NOT what I want to happen. I do not want you to be nervous. It doesn't look good. The camera can see everything, every tense muscle. Instead, I want you to have a fun, wonderful experience to remember for your to come. I love the raw, the unplanned, and the unposed. Every story is personal and unique. I'll guide you gently along the way and we'll have a great time with pictures to prove it.

It is so vital that you choose the right photographer for your family. Where precisely the family begins. For me, it starts when you meet this unique person. The one you want to spend every day of your life with. It's the person who makes you smile, laugh, make you feel special. Who is proud to be with you, who wants to travel around the world with you or laze around. I am a lifestyle photographer. Images from our session will tell a story. A story about you and your fantastic family: I do not try to make you look perfect, stiff or unnatural. I will not ask your children to look at the camera and smile; I will make them smile.

You probably wonder why I want to make a short film for your family. Are beautiful photos no longer sufficient? Pictures are great memory, a moment in our life that can stop forever. Isn't that great, but what if I can give you something more? What if I can keep your memories in motion. I have developed my passion for photography with the birth of my children. I am one of those crazy mothers who photograph every possible moment in my children's lives, but I also recorded short films, a few minutes long ... first smile, first steps, first words. I uploaded them to the YouTube channel, and now we love watching them repeatedly. I want to give you a gift, memories that will last forever. I want to visit your family, spend part of the day with you, and record your everyday life, smiles, and cuddles. I want to show you how lucky you are to have each other.
