Yearbook Club

The family photography membership

"I keep meaning to schedule family photos... Life is just so busy"

I get it, absolutely! Between work, and kids and life, everything is just SO busy. You want to prioritise things like yearly family photographs, but you get so caught up in the day-to-day that it often gets missed. You haven't planned it in time, haven't budgeted for it... So it goes missed for another precious year.

Equally, if you're anything like me, the thought of how quickly your children are growing fills you with dread. From one year to the next there's so much change in the way they look, their attitudes, what they're interested in... If only you could capture just a slice of that to remember it forever – a snapshot of what they were like. 

My solution?

Just like every other important life goal we budget for (holidays, retirement etc), why not put aside a bit per month to ensure you never miss capturing a year in your family's life? A 'set it and forget it' type thing, where we contact you and offer you the best dates to ensure you never miss a year. 

Enter... The Yearbook club.  

Your children are growing so fast.  

We all say it – the nights are long but the years are short. I can't believe my eldest is in high school already – how did that happen? It was only yesterday I nervously held her for the first time. Today she asked when she can learn to drive.

You want to prioritise important things like family photographs, but so often life gets in the way.

Managing 'all the things' life throws at us is hard going. You want photographs, you want to capture these precious memories, gathering a shelf of beautiful photo albums to pour over for years - but so often the organisation of it gets pushed to the bottom of the never-ending pile of 'important things to do if only I had the time'. 

You like the predictability of regular expenses.

Knowing that something important is budgeted for, taken care of, is hugely important to you. For you, it needs to be effortless, easy, without stress or worry.

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!
Gail Millar
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 professionally for over two decades.  

    As a Mum of three, I know just how precious these family years are, and how quickly each one passes as my children grow. 

    I also know how difficult it can be to keep on top of all the things that you need and want to do with your family. I get that the last thing you need is anything complicated or tricky. 

    I photograph so that I can etch memories and feelings into my brain. So that I can look back on them, and enjoy them, for years to come. 

    This is what I do for you too. 


    Things you need to know...

    I am limiting the number of YBC memberships, so that I can ensure a premium level of service.
    I'm keeping the enrolment period short as my diary is already filling, and I'd like to know how many YBC clients I already have before I open my diary to new clients. Enrolment closes 10/02/23.
    We will share my availability twice a year. Once in February and once in August.
    Sessions will be self-scheduled via online booking software. Those first to schedule will get the best choice of available times. 
    Rescheduling for bad weather, illness etc. will be handled in the same way as for all family sessions - we will choose an alternative time.
    In future years, members will be asked if they'd like to continue, ahead of the enrolment being opened to new members. There is no obligation to continue membership. 
    If you choose to renew, but would like to change your subscription up or down, you are welcome to, during the renewal period only. 
    Membership is dependant on you signing a contract to confirm you'll make the regular payments for at least a whole year. 
    There will be two opportunities to complete your yearly school photography sessions (if choosing the middle or top tier of membership). The school sessions are held in Edinburgh in May, or Linlithgow late August. 

    Full terms and conditions are available to view by clicking here. These will be personalised for you, before signing.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes. However, as part of membership, you will be asked to sign a contract where you agree to pay at least the full year's membership fees. 
    In theory, yes. However, membership spaces are limited, and by invitation only, so there is no guarantee there'd be a space for you to come back to in future years. 
    There are LOADS of times available so this is unlikely. However, in the event that it does happen, get in touch and we'll see what we can shift about.
    Mini sessions are small, top up photography sessions ONLY available to members. They are 30 minutes long, cost £250 and include 20 digital images. You could use one of these sessions for lots of things, for example - a maternity shoot, new puppy, special event, or for topping up your headshots. Mini sessions are ONLY available to members.
    Within 40 miles of Linlithgow is included. Travel further afield will incur an additional charge. 
    No, sorry. Memberships are only offered by invitation. 
    No, sorry. One membership for one family. You may, however, include extended family in some of your sessions if you wish. However, this will reduce the number of photographs you receive.
