School Photography Edinburgh and Linlithgow
With three little ones of my own, I know a thing or three about coordinating children in front of the camera. Some are camera-shy, some cannot wait to show off. I can get beautiful portraits of both!

I’ve created a school and nursery photography experience that is both distinctive and fun. I produce photos that show children at their very best, capturing their character without forced smiles. My school photography is the kind people want to proudly display on their walls, it’s a boutique photographic experience at a school photo price.

We were delighted with the school photos Rebecca did of our kids. She has such a natural way with the kids that easily brings out their personalities in the photos. I have never put a school photo on my wall yet – as the kids just didn’t look like themselves in them – but the ones Rebecca took will not need to stay in the drawer.

My children are 9, 7, 5 and 5 and all have additional needs. Getting photographs is never an easy task! 

The experience itself was perfect. Rebecca worked quickly and smoothly around the children’s anxieties and quirks, making them all feel at ease in a short space of time. 

Then came the proofs. I opened them and actually cried with joy. They were perfect. She’d captured each child beautifully, with their personality shining and it was obvious they were relaxed and feeling comfortable from the smiles at the camera.

 The pictures of all four together are perfect and I will come to Rebecca every year from now on. I am delighted.

My two daughters recently had a school photo shoot with Rebecca – the photos were just brilliant! So easy and natural, capturing both of them perfectly. Precious memories to cherish especially as this is our eldest daughter’s last year at primary school. I cannot recommend Rebecca enough.

HOW IT WORKS

If you choose to book, we'll guide you through the whole process to make it easy and stress-free.
Choose dates to suit your school. We can help estimate how long it will take based on your school roll. 
Optional siblings photographs can either be done within school time or out of hours if preferable. 
Class and staff photographs thrown in AND 8 hours of photography time included throughout the year - this can be used for school events such as sports days, school plays and more.
Parents and carers can register online for their children to be included. After the session, they are presented with an online gallery with which to view and purchase from - no more paper forms getting lost!
All parent/carer communications are pre-written, enabling office staff to quickly and easily diseminate information. 
Fully PVG checked helpers are provided if required, ensuring there's no impact on staff numbers.  
Focus is on children enoying the experience so we achieve natural, relaxed photographs. 
Rebecca ensured that my daughter was relaxed so she didn’t put on her “photo pose” but was her natural self. 
The results are the best school photos I have had in years. 
I’m happy to send copies to grandparents, aunts and uncles this year!

Rebecca's friendly and fun approach put both my daughters at ease straight away. She was professional and efficient, whilst taking the time to make sure details were just right. 

She created a lovely relaxed environment and captured beautiful natural and joyful moments between my daughters, with a good selection of different shots to choose from. 

The best school photos ever, I would highly recommend! 
Pamela Barnes
Rebecca is such a talented photographer. I the photos today and they are so special. My husband said he couldn't believe how she managed to capture their souls in a single photograph-praise indeed! 

Would highly recommend it, Rebecca was so great with my children and it was a relaxed fun session allowing my children to be themselves rather than being asked to pose awkwardly.

Frequently Asked Questions

School Photography Edinburgh and Linlithgow
School Photography Edinburgh by Rebecca Holmes
Not at all. I have a variety of backgrounds to choose from. They are, however, all neutral plain colour in order to ensure the focus is firmly on the children’s beautiful faces. No tropical island or outer space backdrops here I’m afraid…
Not a problem. These can be done on a separate day, or during the individual photos, whichever works best for your school.
Yes, absolutely. These can be done in formal rows or more relaxed in the playground. A digital copy is provided free to the school, and a printed copy is provided with all school photo orders.
About one minute per child, although each child varies. Some are happy to come and have their picture taken with me – they joke around and we get the perfect shot and that’s it. Others need a bit longer to feel comfortable.
I’ll do my best to encourage the children to straighten themselves up before their photos.
