Baby Maja is ONE | 1st birthday photoshoot | Edinburgh Baby Photographer
June 12, 2021
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.
So many people show up stressed out for a photoshoot. This is NOT what I want to happen. It doesn't look good. The camera can see everything, every tense muscle. Instead, it should be time to have fun. I loves 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.WHO I AM?
“Dorota was our photographer for my newborn family shoot at home. She was amazing from beginning to end. She was so happy to take the time to get the right pictures and was so patient and positive, even with my 1 year old toddler running riot. I wish I had her for my first babies photos. We are so happy with all our pictures. Highly recommend.”
“I absolutely loved working with Dorota. The photos are amazing. She was very responsible as our photos happened during the pandemic. She wore gloves, mask, sanitised and made us feel really safe. As for the actual photos she was brilliant, she made us feel at ease with our newborn and verbally directed us into poses that we wanted! We were sent a link with such a good variety of beautiful photos after. And on top of that she was so friendly and kind! Definitely recommend!”
“I cannot recommend Dorota highly enough. The pictures she took are absolutely perfect, we are so grateful to have captured my son’s first weeks at home. Dorota is such a calm presence - I had been worried about my older children and whether they’d behave but Dorota quickly put my mind at rest, was able to develop a great rapport with my kids and was really good at keeping things moving when they got distracted. Excellent service and communication from start to finish, highly recommend.”
“I can’t recommend Dorota enough. My husband and I live in England but traveled to Scotland for our last trip before our first baby arrives. When searching for photographers in the area I stumbled across Dorota’s page and I’m so thankful I did. From the beginning she was amazing. Open communication and always kept in touch up until our shoot and after. When we received our gallery we were blown away. My husband hates photographs and these are some of the best photos I’ve ever seen of him. More than 5 starts”
“Dorota's photographs of our family were absolutely gorgeous, they made us cry they were so perfect. She put them together for us, and selected the best ones for a wee slideshow, which was just ideal and a lovely way to share them with our families. During the shoot she made us feel relaxed and on top of the world, and definitely got the best out of all of us - even our tiny baby. We'd recommend her to anyone.”
“Dorota is great photographer who made our dreams come true. She adjusted her schedule to ours. She met with us before sessions to get us know and meet our first daughter so she could get comfortable around her as my daughter is very shy.
Dorota is very talented. She made many great pictures, so we can choose the ones we love the best.
I recommend Dorota for 1000000%.”
“My session with Dorota was splendid! It was my first time in Edinburgh and didn’t know which places to choose but Dorota was superb suggesting great places! Our photo session was super awesome as she takes us to great photo spots and she was very nice to make us feel comfortable throughout the shoots which made all the photos look great! Such a lovely time :)”
“What a great photoshoot 🙏😊
Couldn’t ask for more... couldn’t expect that much 🥰
Dorota you made feel like a princess with my huge belly bump 🙈 and even my partner took part of the shoot. Nowadays everybody is able to take photos... everybody is actually taking photos and being “photographers” but if you want something that goes far from a simple click ... if you want to keep precious moments you need a special eye behind the camera ... and I found it witch Dorota”
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.
I take photographs of real families, like yours.
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.
