I'm a Portrait Photographer who captures all chapters of motherhood. I translate every day moments into timeless images that document your unique family history, so that joys and wonders of childhood can be cherished for generations to come. 


Motherhood and Family Portrait Sessions are an opportunity to capture all family members sharing special moments. You probably have hundreds of photos of our children saved on our smart phones but they will miss having you in the photos when they get older. 


It is important that you feature in your family photo albums, so that your children can share stories and images with their children and grandchildren. 

My sessions take place on location and no two sessions are ever the same

But you do not need to have children to book family photo session with me..... couples, friends, cat, dog or horse parents are all welcome....

  • What can I expect from a brand photography session with Monagraphs?
    At Monagraphs, we specialise in creating timeless portraits of maternity and family moments, captured amidst the natural beauty of Edinburgh. Our brand photography sessions focus on capturing the essence of your brand in a style that's both beautiful and authentic. You can expect a comprehensive and personalised experience, beginning with a consultation to understand your vision and needs. We then select stunning outdoor locations that complement your brand's unique story. During the session, we ensure a comfortable and enjoyable environment, allowing for genuine interactions and expressions. The final result is a collection of high-quality, enduring images that beautifully represent your brand's journey.
  • What is the best colour to wear for maternity pictures?
    In my opinion, neutrals, whites, and pastels are the best choices for your maternity photos. These colours beautifully highlight your adorable baby bump, making it the star of the session.
  • When should you take maternity pictures?
    The best time to schedule your maternity photo session is typically in the third trimester, between 26 and 34 weeks, or around the 7th and 8th months of pregnancy. During this period, your belly will have a lovely, pronounced round shape that's perfect for photos. However, this timing can vary depending on your body and how you’re feeling.
  • What makeup do you wear to a maternity photo shoot?
    For a maternity photo shoot, it's best to go for a natural and fresh look with your makeup. Think of enhancing your features rather than masking them. A light foundation or BB cream, a bit of blush to add a healthy glow, and neutral eyeshadows work wonders. Don't forget a good mascara to make your eyes pop and a soft, natural lip colour. The goal is to look like the best version of yourself, so you feel confident and beautiful in front of the camera.
