OMG it’s October already! Get your Christmas Shoot booked now!

Where on earth has the time gone?

I’ve been meaning to upload some of the shoots I’ve been doing lately but as usual I’ve fell way behind mainly due to the hecticness of trying to finish off my studio, which is well under way and looking good.  I’m super excited and can’t wait to share some pics with you.

If your like me and thinking about Christmas already and what to get the parents/Granny’s and Grandas for Christmas why not book a session with Amara Ritchie Photography and pop a lovely pic in as a Christmas gift!  Dates are filling up rather quickly so if your thinking about it – book now to be guaranteed Christmas delivery.

I’ve included a few shots of a gorgeous 8 month old baby girl called Lily who had the biggest eyes I have ever seen.


Oh to be 21 AGAIN!

I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful girl called Sarah today who was given a photoshoot as a gift for her 21st from her parents.  (Pretty cool parents if you ask me).  We decided on a nice hotel Meldrum House which is absolutely stunning.  I wanted to share a couple of images from todays shoot with you, I really didn’t have to edit much at all as Sarah has the most gorgeous skin and pretty face that I could have uploaded them straight from the camera.

Sarah has kindly let me share these images with you and if I looked as good as her I’d want them plastered all over the place lol!!

I have so many other shoots to share with you that I’ve done over the past few days and weeks that I hope to eventually get round to uploading and updating my site and blog.  For now though I’ve been concentrating on my studio (which is almost there) even though I haven’t done much work.  It’s all thanks to my gorgeous husband and his friends.  You see – men do come in useful sometimes 😉

So, have a great weekend everyone and if you fancy booking a boudoir shoot for yourself or guys if you want to book one for your pretty lady as a surprise, give me a shout for some more details.

New Props

If there is anything I love about photographing children it’s all the fun and funky props that I’m forever searching for.  However, I discovered I spent a small fortune buying props!!!!    I like to make sure that every session doesn’t look the same and that I can offer my clients something that nobody else has.  I know it’s not always possible but I DO try.  I’ve seen me drag my mum to car boot sales, hobbey craft shops and thrift shops lol in the search for that treasure prop.  I bought two knitting books the other day determined to knit these cute little pants.  After spending a whole day, knitting and unknitting and knitting and unknitting I gave up, popper the needles and wool in a bag along with the book and gave it to my Granny.  I’m determined to try it again but I so desperealtely want these little pants for my next baby session.

Anyway just wanted to share a few of my recent props with you all.

3 Weeks and counting ……….

Today I photographed my gorgeous friend Natalie who has only 3 weeks left till baby is due, yep that’s right 3 weeks left! She walked into my house today wearing a gorgeous “non maternity maxi dress” and cool denim jacket looking not pregnant!! I think I said something along the lines of “where’s the bump”? She is so tiny and as I remember back to when she was pregnant first time round with her son Mikey she was exactly the same then! Some people are so lucky. Not only is she pregnant and gorgeous, she’s one of the nicest people I have ever met and I love her loads, she’s my drinking buddy too ha ha! Anyway, I wanted to share a few of the shots from today. I will be uploading some more on my site very soon.

So for all you pregnant ladies out there, who want to remember how beautiful you look when your pregnant……… call me 😉

Aswanley Estate Wedding

On Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Katrina and Michael on the stunning grounds of Aswanley Estate

I would highly recommend this place to any couple who are looking to decorate things to their taste.  It has beautiful stables with a lake and lots of  old buildings round about it.

Little Katie looked gorgeous in her red dress and is so photogenic I could have kidnapped her


The happy couple

Summer Weddings

It’s been a good wee while since I updated the blog but I seem to have got myself in a wee tiz between weddings, portrait shoots, and buying clothes for our family holiday!  Now that the school holidays are just around the corner and I’m beginning to feel organised I want to share two of the weddings I shot this past couple of weekends.  Both brides were absolutely gorgeous as were the locations…… Pittodrie House Hotel where Alison and Kris got married.  Clair and Jim got married at Newhills Church, followed by some picture taking at Stoneywood House which is ABSOLUTELY stunning and then onto the Airport Thistle in Dyce. Both weddings were gorgeous days even though Karen (my assistant photographer) and I were attacked by mosquitos or beasties of some description at Pittodrie.  I woke up the next day covered in little bites euchhhh!

Anyway here are some of the images I shot:

These first batch are of Alison and Kris Pittman

Congratulations also to Clair and Jim Burbridge

Wedding Albums

Goodness it’s been a wee while since I did a blog post but I’ve been so busy with shoots and editing that I’ve not had time to upload anything.  I just wanted to tell you all about a new album I can offer.  It’s a gorgeous retro/vintage style that is so pretty that you wouldn’t want to ever hide it away.  It’s fully digital and they come in various different styles and sizes.  This one below is one of my personal favourites and I cant wait to getting round to designing one.

I’m still offering the gorgeous Queensberry Albums that are hand made in New Zealand but how could one not resist adding these to my album collection!!

I have loads of new pics to post when I get round to it and a wedding this Saturday so fingers crossed that it doesn’t rain.

New Photography Products & Templates

As much as I hate having a cold and lack of energy to do anything it’s been a blessing in disguise because, my lack of energy has meant that I have been glued to my computer and trying to come up with some new designs for Coffee Table Books and Wall Art.  For those of you who are expecting your first newborn and decorating a nursery but can’t quite decide what to put on the walls – look no further!!  Why not go for gorgeous pictures of your “lil” one with their initials.  Better still, tell me your nursery colour scheme and I will design it to suit at no extra charge rather than the templates already designed.  This way you can be guaranteed that no one else will have the same art on their walls.

These are not only available for newborns, – you may be re-decorating your little girl or boys bedroom and want some updated themed images with a new colour scheme.  The options are endless and I’m always happy to work with you to see what it is you want.

They are so adorable NOT to have 😉

I have more Coffee Table Templates coming soon but here is the newest design.

The choice is endless and that’s what I want to bring you – something a little different.
