2017 saw slice of life photography undertake 56 newborn photoshoots, 17 cake smash photography sessions, 12 family photoshoots, 11 location photoshoots in the spring bluebells, 6 maternity photoshoots and 21 fine art fairy and elf photoshoots. It really has been an amazing year, but now its time to take a look at 2018.I hope to make this year even better with more themed special photoshoots as well as building on what you love. Here's what's planned so far
Last year saw the introduction of a beginners workshop, teaching attendees the basic skills needed to take their DSLR camera of 'auto'. The response to the course was overwhelming and I must admit I enjoyed sharing my knowledge with everyone that attended. I have decided to bring the course back for 1 date only in 2018! So if you are interesting in learning the basics of exposure, lighting and composition in a fun and practical workshop then pencil 3rd March into your diary. More details can be found about the course via the Blog article here: beginners-phtography-training-day
2017 saw the introduction of Elves and Mummy Fairies to our popular Fine Art Fairy Photography. I absolute love creating these magical Fairy Portraits and gain delight from watching the little ones enjoy the magic. During 2018 I have scheduled 3 Dates for fairy Photoshoots. 18th February, 24th June and 29th September. Spaces for Fairy Photoshoots are selling fast and I expect will all dates will sell out.

For the last few years I have run Mini sessions in the wonderful Bluebell woodlands. I love capturing your little ones in the woodlands and hope to capture many more in 2018. I have decided not to run Mini sessions this year, instead I would encourage to book a regular location Photoshoot during the magical 2 weeks during which the Bluebells are in bloom. The decision to not run mini sessions is based about my desire to have more time with each family to ensure I can dedicate the time to create personalised family portraits that reflect individual personalities. The Bluebells are generally Bloom during the 2nd half of April so please book a location Family Photoshoot doing the last 2 weeks to capture your family in this beautiful setting.
Capturing our beautiful 4 legged friends is something that I would really love to do more of. Having recently lost one of my own beautiful Labradors it has reminded me of the importance of including our fur babies in family photos. With this in mind I plan to offer a dedicated studio day for Pets. This is scheduled for 17th March and more details will follow shortly.
During 2017 I have had the opportunity to create some wonderful outdoor family photography, making use of the wonderful summer and autumn seasons. This is something I would like to encourage more of during 2018 so if fun natural style photography is your preference then secure a fun outdoor photoshoot during 2018.
2017 was so busy for me I had limited time to work on personal projects. During 2018 I would really like to rectify this and as such I plan to work on some styled shoots developing my Fine Art style. I will be seeking some models for this project so if you are interested in putting your children forward for this please keep your eyes peeled on my Facebook page.
I look forward to welcoming lots of you through the doors of my Spalding based photography studio. I hope to see lots of regular clients and welcoming many new families though my doors.
