Welcome to Polly Harris Photography. Natural Light, Family and Children photographer based in Kirkintilloch, near Glasgow. 

Thank you for visiting. I’m a natural light photographer based in Kirkintilloch near Glasgow. I specialise in Family & Children, Nursery and Contemporary School Photography. I am known for photographing outdoors using natural light and the colours of nature that surround us. My photo shoots are relaxed, individual and all about having fun allowing me to capture your children being children and your family being yourselves.

Smiles are great, but not essential.  When we have fun and forget about the camera the most natural images happen. My aim is to create for you vibrant and beautiful photography of your children and family, for your home that you will love, for generations to come.  I photograph families on location at a favourite park or place you enjoy, using our vibrant Scottish nature as our studio. Nursery and school outdoor photography are location specific.

If you are interested in the style of my work and would like me to capture some memories of your children and family, I would love to hear from you. You can find out a little bit more about me here.

Family & Children

Family & children sessions are informal, fun and personalised. They are about capturing your family just being you. We can play games, children can dress up or bring toys and we explore outdoors. Sessions last around 2.5 hrs and take place in a favourite family location. I photograph at locations within 30 minutes drive of Kirkintilloch. 

Session Fees start at £99.

Back To School

I offer fun and contemporary Back To School Mini Sessions at the start of each school year.  These are perfect for children starting school or returning for a new year. 

Sessions take place in an outdoor setting. 

Back to School Mini Sessions cost £50


I visit a limited number of nurseries throughout the year offering photography services.  My aim is to offer parents some natural outdoor images of children in their nursery environment.

My style of photography is based on using natural light.  There is no need to dress your child differently, it’s about photographing the children as they have fun.  It’s a perfect opportunity to capture some moments of the children at play outdoors.







“We loved the photos of Zoe! Thank you so much. You really captured her, and she obviously forgot the camera was there because she looks so relaxed. It is lovely to have professional shots which are so natural and capture her sense of fun. They’ve brought a great deal of pleasure which we’ve been able to share with family.”

Fiona and Kevin

“The kids had a really good day, Polly made it fun, relaxed and exciting. The photos were lovely and done to a very high standard. Family and friends comment on how lovely the photos are hanging on the wall.”

Jan and Kevin 

“Having my children’s photographs taken by Polly was fantastic. She was funny, engaging, kind and imaginative, and as a result, captured them at their most natural. She was dedicated to get the best shots she could, but kept the vibe playful and lighthearted (even when the kids were not being the easiest). We were thrilled with the shots and cannot wait until we can get her back again.”

Ainsley and Ian 

“We had a great day with Polly who was fantastic from start to finish. She was great with the kids, helping them relax and settle into it and being very patient with them throughout. Polly was highly professional, guiding us through what to do and used a range of different backdrops to get the best photos. Thanks again Pauline, the final photos were brilliant.“

Susan and Michael 

“Memorable photoshoot: really enjoyed the quality time we spent as a family while having our photos done. Our children enjoyed meeting Polly before the photoshoot and were very comfortable being photographed by her. Polly was amazing at interacting with the children and making the photo shoot fun and relaxed. Really happy with our photos! thanks Polly for the capturing beautiful moments.”

Linda and Ian

“Thank you so much Polly for taking our gorgeous photographs and making our mini session such an easy, relaxed experience . We had such a laugh. You have a really lovely calm and chilled way about you yet so professional which so helped put us at ease.”

Alistair and Nicola

“Polly’s super friendly yet professional style won my husband, myself and our mischievous boys over. The initial meeting and subsequent photo shoot were so relaxed that the whole process was more fun than we’d expected. 
Our final photos were outstanding and because we struggled to choose favourites we ended up having Polly professionally frame and mount 4 pictures and plan to frame some more ourselves. We’re delighted we found Polly and would highly recommend.”
