DIY Newborn Photo Course

I created this DIY Newborn Photo Course at the peak of lockdown as I had so many parents desperate for photos but, of course, unable to leave the house. The feedback was incredible (I even made it into the local Edinburgh newspapers) and the results of the DIY Photos were amazing to see. Even though I am now able to work at my Edinburgh studio again, I have decided to leave the info here. Hope you find it useful!
