Photography Training

Portrait Mini Sessions for Kids


Holy Cross Church Hall, 36 Quality St, Davidson's Mains, Edinburgh EH4 5BS

Fancy some gorgeous, natural, fun portrait photos, all while helping Reindeer Playgroup?

Then book your children in for their portrait mini-session on Saturday, 6th May! 20% of all profits from this photography day will be donated to help Reindeer Playgroup continue to look after local preschoolers.

I've created a portrait 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 photography is the kind people want to display on their walls proudly; it's a boutique photographic experience at an affordable price.

"Adorable, beautiful and natural photos that actually look like your child but better – like when they are being unusually angelic, cute and charming"

Your kids are at different schools so you never manage to get a nice photo of them together. 

Have you got a preschooler, P4 and S1 all at different schools (or am I the only crazy one?)... These sessions have got you covered – we take both individual and sibling photographs. 

You want natural, real photos of your kids to remember each school year.

No more forced "cheese" smiles that make your little ones look a little weird, or selfie poses and pouts on your teens that are just a tad scary. These sessions are fun, relaxed and we work very VERY hard to make sure we capture your children as they *really* are. 

You don't have time for fuss or the brainpower for more 'things to do'.

I hear you! The last thing you need is another long and drawn out 'activity' to drag your kids to at the weekend. That's why we do everything we can to make these sessions quick and painless – five minutes, that's all we need. 

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!

Rebecca is such a talented photographer. I received 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.
Emma McGroarty
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 understands children and what makes a good photo. She has fun, puts everyone at ease and then gets amazing shots! We have had family, dance and school shoots and have been delighted with them all.

    Who am I?

    I'm Rebecca Holmes and I'm a photographer, photography trainer and business mentor. 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 was really keen to create a better regular portrait photography experience – one where my children looked like themselves, where they had fun, and where I looked forward to hanging the photos on the wall. 

    I look forward to meeting you and having a little laugh with your kids as we capture beautiful photographs of them.
