Your children are growing so fast.  

First, they're wide-eyed and amazed by the twinkling lights. Next, they're trying to rearrange the Christmas tree decorations. Then, they're "just checking" the presents... And before you know it, they can put the star on the top all by themselves. 

Christmas is such a warm, cosy, magical time to come together as a family.

The world slows down as the days draw shorter. Movies, blankets, warm food, hot chocolates and lots of cuddles come naturally and easily. 

You want to look back on this time and remember how special it was.

You want an easy and fun way to mark each Christmas – a special keepsake, a reminder for each and every year.

But maybe you're worried your kids won't play ball?

I've been photographing children for over twenty years and can count on one hand the number of children who I haven't been able to get a nice, natural photograph of. I speak both 'threenager' and grumpy teen fluently!

Surely we only need photos of the kids... I don't need to be in them.

Yes. You do. Just as these memories are special to you. They'll also be hugely special to your children when they're older. Give your children the precious gift of memories.

Rebecca has photographed my boys many times and I've always loved the photos which hang on my wall at home. She is so great at making the kids feel relaxed and at ease and always gets such natural photographs... Rebecca is such a special talent.

This is the second time Rebecca has photographed our little family and the resultant photographs are just wonderful! She has given me stunning, natural images of my daughter, which perfectly capture her character. We can’t wait to return again!

Rebecca has a passion for this and a connection with people that allow her to capture the very best images. Love the photos she got of my wife and kids: perfect in every way.

    Who am I?

    I'm Rebecca Holmes and I run a thriving family and commercial photography business covering Edinburgh, the Lothians and beyond. I have been photographing children professionally for over two decades.  

    As a Mum of three, I know just how precious Christmas is, and how quickly each one passes as my children grow. 

    Knowing this, I wanted to start marking the occasion with a beautiful family portrait. Providing myself with memories I can cherish for many many years. I didn't want anything too cutesy or contrived, just my natural, relaxed, connected, warm style. 

    And so, the idea for Christmas mini sessions was born.... 


    A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to book your place.

    After your 20-minute studio photography session, you will immediately have a short viewing and ordering session. This usually takes approximately 10 minutes and is a good time to enjoy the complimentary hot chocolate and homemade Christmas cookies while the children open their gifts.

    You will view your images on a screen, and be asked to choose between one of the following three packages. Your deposit will be taken off the amounts shown and the balance of payment will be made by card, there and then.

    You will also be asked to choose which photo to use for the included Christmas Cards.
