Hi! My name is Kate Curry and I am a Glasgow-based photographer who also works in Edinburgh. I am a mobile photographer - so I come to you to take the photos and I work with a very relaxed style.
I specialize in family, maternity and baby photography. In addition I also take photographs of performers.
Photos are valuable and help us remember happy times, important people and our achievements. Photos can be cross-generational and can be passed down the family in order to remember family members. This is why I believe that printing photos is important and I would urge my clients to do so. Wouldn't it be wonderful if in generations to come they can look at the photos you had taken to ask 'what did Great Grandma look like?' Also remember that we will never reach a point in our lives where we stop looking at photos and saying 'didn't we look young?' This is part of the joy that they bring. Capturing precious moments.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Family Photography (maternity, baby, families etc.)
Turn brief moments of time into lasting keepsakes for years to come.
Where do you take photos?
I work in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. I come to you to take the photos - either to your own home or we can meet at a location of your choice (permits allowing).
I would like to request that you come to take photos in our home, but I am unsure as to the suitability of our house.
Most houses are suitable. I prefer to work with natural light and so finding a well lit room, during daylight hours is best. However if lighting is bad, or the time of day isn't suitable I can bring lighting with me to use. It is best to find a clutter-free corner if possible, but I can also provide a backdrop where required.
What other types of venue suit a photography shoot?
If you have a garden and there is good weather this can work well. Other outdoor alternatives include any local parks, beaches or areas of greenery. More unusual indoor areas I have used in the past include places of work, local village halls and a shopping centre!
What is involved in a baby photography session?
I bring a collection of blankets and throws to pose and wrap baby in. I also like to incorporate any props or items you also have. I usually use a bed or sofa to do this on, but baby chairs and carry cots can work nicely too. My posing style generally is very natural. A warm room is best and will hopefully help with keeping baby nice and relaxed during the session. It is best to pick a time of day when baby is naturally sleeping - as sleeping babies offer a greater flexibility for posing. Giving baby a bath beforehand can also help promote sleep. During a baby photography session I also like to take family photos, including parent(s) and siblings. Parents who are uncomfortable being in photos, can still take part using shots including hands/ over the shoulder etc.
How long do family photography sessions last?
Sessions generally last between one and two hours - but that depends upon the number of subjects and the environment etc. If children aren't feeling up to it sessions can be shorter or longer as required.
What experience do you have working with children?
I am a proud godparent and auntie. I have helped with babysitting, feeding and changing nappies. My career prior to family photography included working as an Education Officer at Edinburgh Zoo with children of all ages. I also used to lead a children's wildlife group at a local stately home.
How and when do I receive the photos?
Once I have worked on the images, which can take up to two weeks for me to finish editing your photos, I put together a private online gallery of all of your images and I send an email to you with a link to online access. From here you can look at the images and make an order. For an additional £15 (plus postage) all purchased images can be provided instead on a customised memory stick. In addition to this please allow up to a fortnight after ordering to receive any ordered items such as prints.
How many photos can I expect?
I aim to produce 20+ photos that are available from each session.
