Beautiful Photographic Art for Families Just Like You


I am Judy, a portrait photographer based in Aberdeen, Scotland.

I create beautiful photographic art for families just like you.

Whether your family is just beginning,  in the middle of the busy toddler years,  or you’re looking ahead to the days when your children are about to become independent young adults, I would love to create images that capture your family authentically and beautifully.

If you love the wild Aberdeenshire landscapes where your children can run, jump and play then I would love to join you on a family adventure.  Whatever your favourite location, I’ll be there to help you relax together and forget about the camera and create natural, relaxed and timeless images you will always cherish. If you are not sure where to go for your family portraits then I have some great ones that I love to use for every season of the year. 

If your family is just beginning I have a bespoke newborn studio set in the beautiful countryside just to the west of Aberdeen. The studio is perfect for maternity, newborn and baby session where my style is simple, pure and natural. A warm welcome awaits you along with fresh coffee while I work. 

I also run a one-day informal photography workshop for beginners who are interested in learning how to use their camera on manual mode.

Take a browse through my portfolios. I’d love to book you in for a session, or to welcome you for a coffee and chat to discuss how we can tell the story of your family.
