Mini Newborn Photoshoot

Newborn Photography is one of the specialisms at Slice of Life Photography and I am delighted to introduce the new Mini Newborn Photoshoot Package.  A mini newborn photoshoot is perfect for busy families that don’t have the time to commit to a full length bespoke newborn photoshoot.  A Mini Newborn Photoshoot is streamlined and simple in design, allowing for me to offer 1 hours sessions in an all inclusive package.

What does a Mini Newborn Photoshoot include?

A Mini Newborn Photoshoot is a 1 hour session that includes 5 digital images sent to you via dropbox.  The shorter session is focused solely on the baby and will not include any family or sibling photos.  I will capture a series of images of baby wrapped and snug so if they aren’t sleepy we can still capture some beautiful images.  I will use the beanbag for the majority of images however if baby is settled and calm then 1 prop may be included.

A Newborn Mini Photoshoot offers simple styling and will consist of 1 colour palette (either brown or grey).  If you would prefer a more bespoke Newborn Photoshoot then please look at details of my standard Newborn Photography package.

This special Mini Newborn Photoshoot can be booked for the fantastic all inclusive price of just £149.  This cost covers the 1 hours studio time, a full professional editing service and 5 digital files chosen by the photographer.  An option to purchase the additional images is also available.

    Why book a Newborn Photoshoot

    24th January 2018

    Are your pregnant or have a new little addition to your family? Many congratulations on your little miracle. Newborns grow and change at an alarming rate and before you know it your beautiful baby has become a smelly, moody, teenager. My own little miracle celebrates her 10th Birthday next week and it’s hard to remember those tiny toes and fingers. I didn’t know about booking a specialist Newborn Photoshoot back then but I am so thankful for the wonderful baby photos I have of my tiny baby girl.

    Whist your newborn is still tiny you will be so wrapped up in the whirlwind of those early days, running on adrenaline, sleep deprived, with a constant stream of visitors. It is so easy for your little one to change and you not notice until it’s too late and your newborn has become more alert and that sleepy curled up baby has gone forever. If you make time for one thing I would strongly recommend looking at baby photographers in Lincolnshire and book a newborn photoshoot when you are around 20 weeks pregnant to ensure you secure a space.

    Look for baby photographers who are specially trained.

    Some of the poses you see in the beautiful images we all coo over requires specialist skills to ensure that your precious baby remains safe at all times, so please research your choices carefully. You might choose a mobile photographer so you can remain in the comfort of your home or prefer a photography studio where a range of props and backdrops are available for you to choose from. Maybe you want more lifestyle photography type images where baby is captured during natural interaction with you or you love the wonderful posed images that capture sleepy babies all curled up. Whatever your preference there is a newborn photographer nearby that will be perfect for you.

    My personal photography style has developed over the last few years and my newborn photoshoots include a range of natural and posed images capturing your newborn both awake and asleep, using a range of props and blankets to compliment your home. My service incorporates discussions with you to ensure that the images captured suit your family and personal style. My garden photography studio near Spalding is easily accessible from Peterborough, Boston and Kings Lynn and is ideal to allow you to relax and enjoy your newborn photography experience in comfort whilst I work my magic.

    I hope my post on baby photographers near Peterborough has been useful. If you have any questions or would love to chat about booking your baby session with me. Contact me today.

    I look forward to welcoming you soon.

      Coming soon for 2018 at Spalding Photography Studio

      10th January 2018
      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 it’s 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…

      Beginners Photography Training Day

      Last year saw the introduction of a beginner’s 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 interested 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-photography-training-day

      Fairy and Elf Photoshoot Days

      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 more information on Fairy Photography please hop over to the information page here.

      Bluebell Location Photography

      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.

      Pet Photography

      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.

      Outdoor Photography

      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.

      Fine Art Portraits

      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.

        Slice of Life Photography - Fine Art Photographer

        Photography Studio Lincolnshire

        2017 in review

        1st January 2018

        Well what an amazing year I have had at Slice of Life Photography. A record number of clients have stepped through the doors, I have relocated the studio close to Spalding in Lincolnshire and I continue to love every minute of what I do. Not every session has been easy, there have challenges along the way. Children who don’t want to co-operate, babies suffering colic or that don’t want to sleep, rain and freezing temperatures to battle on wedding days, but the end result has always been worth the persistence and determination. I absolutely love creating beautiful newborn photos for you to treasure, capturing you little ones birthday with a cake smash photoshoot and transforming your little ones into timeless fairies and elves. Here are the highlights from the most amazing year to date.

        Newborn Photography

        I have had the pleasure of recording the arrival of 54 newborn babies this year. Capturing their early days with timeless beautiful baby photos in my Lincolnshire Photography studio. Some babies have slept through their newborn photoshoot and others have watched me intently and been far too interested in what I’ve been doing to close their eyes, but each and every one has been a wonderful precious gift and a delight to photograph.

        Little Sitters

        A few of my newborns have returned for the little sitter part of their Milestones Photography package and other Little sitters have visited for the first time. I love to capture sitting babies as it is a great opportunity to capture their emerging personalities as they start to see the world for a different vantage point.

        Cake Smash Photoshoots

        Cake smash photoshoots are a great way to record your baby turning one. As well as 16 1st birthdays this year, I have also captured my first 2nd birthday and mustn’t forget capturing my own cheeky 11 year old as well. A fun photoshoot for any age.

        Bluebell Mini Photoshoots

        The Spring time is one of my favourite times of year to get outside and create some wonderful family memories during location photoshoots. This year 11 families joined me for sessions in the wonderful Bluebell wonderlands. The beautiful purple flowers making a wonderful setting for outdoor photography sessions and mark the start of spring for me.

        Family Photoshoots

        I have seen a rise in families visiting this year with 12 families joining me either in the studio or on location for an outdoor family photoshoot. It is lovely to be able to capture the whole family together; it’s so important to have pictures with Mummy and Daddy in too.

        Maternity Photography

        Bump Photoshoots are so precious. An opportunity to document your pregnancy and the life growing inside of you. 6 Mummyies have stepped into the studio to document their amazing bodies this year, all glowing in the beauty of pregnancy.

        Fairy Photography

        This year has seen my Fairy Photography grow massively, with the introduction of Elves and Fairy outfits for Mummies.   Fairy Photoshoots are held on limited dates throughout the year and every date sold out during 2017!  2018 fairy dates are already booking up and I cannot wait to create more magical Fine Art Fairy Portraits for you all.

        Pet Photography

        Pet Photography is an area I hope to expand during 2018.  Capturing our 4 legged family members is so important.  As I write this I am preparing to let my own fur baby go to sleep forever and it breaks my heart that she will no longer be here to greet you all, but I take comfort in the many amazing portraits I have of her.  Riley is the 1 fur baby that visited in 2017 and he was a dream to photograph.  Watch this space for details of Pet Portrait Days coming in 2018.

        Christmas Photoshoots

        Christmas is such a fun magical time and it is lovely to document the magic through photography. Many clients chose to document their little ones every Christmas as it is a great gift to share with family and document how they have grown each year.

        Engagement and Wedding Photography

        My 2017 journey in wedding photography will follow in a separate article, after I have completed the final 2017 wedding collection.  Just one couple chose to include a pre-wedding engagement shoot in their wedding package this year and together we chose to take advantage of the beautiful Bluebells to document this.  I hope that more couples will add an engagement photoshoot to their wedding packages during the 2018 and 2019 wedding seasons.  It is so wonderful to capture couples so much in love and allows us to work together ahead of the pressures of a busy wedding day.

        Finally I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy new year and  to thank each and everyone of  you for the 134 sessions, 5 weddings, 1 prom and one Charity Ball that I have had the privilege of documenting throughout 2017.  Here is to an amazing 2018 x

          5th November 2017

          What am I paying for?

          I just wanted to write a quick post about what goes into a photoshoot in my Spalding Photography Studio. Just like within any industry there are many price brackets for the same product, and photography is no different, however it is not uncommon for me to hear the words, ‘you’re too expensive’, and this is absolutely fine as I don’t expect every enquiry to turn into a booking, but I want clients and potential clients to understand what is involved within a Newborn photography session, what happens behind the scenes before I press the shutter for your cake smash photoshoot and to understand the time and skill that goes into editing your Fairy Photos. I pride myself in offering a unique and personal service to all my clients and hope that it is this that sets me apart from my competitors and is the reason that my clients choose me. Whilst this blog article isn’t about justifying what I charge I hope it helps you to understand that the unique images created during your baby photoshoot or cake smash session at my Spalding Photography studio or even as part of your wedding photography package are not a simple ‘click of the button’,

          So let me outline some of the essential elements to running my Spalding photography studio.

          My purpose-built garden Spalding photography studio offers a home from home experience and I hope ensures a relaxing and enjoyable environment for your photography session. Whilst I like to try and maintain business hours to ensure a work life balance, working from home does mean that I can offer a little more flexibility to my clients. I appreciate that many of you work 9 – 5 and so it is not uncommon for me to make myself available for clients to collect orders out of hours on the way home from work or at weekends.

          It is important to me that my props are updated and replaced regularly to ensure that the images that I create for my clients are personal and unique to them. My wonderful Spalding photography studio has been kitted out with a range of props and outfits, some of them unique and handmade by me. I pride myself in offering variety and choice to my clients and I want them to walk away with memories and images that are special to them and not just the same as the next persons.

          Cake smash photoshoots are styled to individual clients’ preferences. If I client requests a set up I haven’t created before then a new outfit is purchased and items linked to the theme are brought, this may include bunting or more specific items (like carrots for a recent Peter rabbit themed session or a Unicorn headband). In addition to these one of expenses every cake smash photoshoot includes the cost of the cake which is made by a professional baker, styled to your chosen theme. In order to ensure I maintain a high standard of hygiene all cake smash sessions are photographed on a paper back drop which is thrown away after the session. Outfits and towels etc. are also washed and the studio cleaned after every session to maintain the high hygiene levels important when working with young children.

          Slice of Life Photography - vintage pink themed cake smash photography by Slice of Life Photography, Spalding studio

          During a newborn photography session many wraps and blankets are used, some get pooped on, some peed on but regardless each and every blanket and outfit that is used during a newborn photoshoot is washed and dried prior to being used with another baby. If my clients have a specific colour or image in mind for their session I go out of my way to source the necessary items to create the image. I am currently designing a prop for an upcoming newborn session as a surprise for my client. The time and love that I have put into creating this unique item is because I love what I do and I want my clients to have the perfect images for them. I’m sure there will be a blog post to follow on this after the big reveal.

          Insurance provides cover and peace of mind to both myself and my clients that should the worst happen, everyone concerned is fully protected. This is particularly important within my work as a wedding photographer or a newborn photographer where should a memory card become corrupt and the files lost a simple reshoot isn’t an option. It ensures that should my equipment become damaged I will able to get the items repaired or replaced without delay. My insurance has proved invaluable already. When my camera was dropped during a wedding in November 2015, it was repaired and back to me within 10 working days, In time for the next wedding I had booked.

          Camera’s, Lens, Lighting, and Computers are some of the many pieces of equipment essential to my job. Aside from the initial outlay for these, they don’t last forever and need to be replaced frequently. It is also paramount to me that I have back up equipment available should a failure happen during a photo shoot. I would much rather grab my spare camera than stop the session.

          I want to be able to provide the best service possible to my clients, this means regular training to develop my photography and business skills. Previously I have undertaken Newborn Photography training with some of the world’s leading photographers, I have undertaken training in Newborn Safety, and specialist training to allow me to create stunning fine art Fairy Portraits and in 2018 I will be completing further training including baby first aid. I hope that this ongoing training provides my clients with the peace of mind that they and their children are in safe hands and that the images I create for them are of the highest possible standard. I am also a member of The Guild of Photographers and BANPAS, these professional bodies support me to continue to provide a high standard of professional service.

          The process of editing is time consuming and this is factored into the overall cost of your photography session. All images are retouched to a high standard, removing blemishes and correcting skin tones etc. takes time and patience. It is important to me that your images are finished to a high standard and so a lot of care and attention goes into each individual image. All images within the final gallery are fully retouched prior to your personal viewing and ordering appointment. Whilst this means that there is a two week wait for your viewing appointment, it also means that you can see exactly what the final image looks like rather than trust that my editing will match what you visualise.

          Recently a few clients have asked why I stopped on-line galleries for viewing and ordering. There are two main reasons behind this. Firstly, I want you to see the images exactly as they will appear in print. Every screen, TV or monitor has a different colour tone and this means that what you view on your computer at home may not be what appears in print. The screen that images are viewed on in the studio matches the colour tones of the professional printing lab that supplies your final prints, so by viewing your gallery within the Spalding photography studio you can see exactly how they will appear in print. It is also important to me that I am able to offer you support and guidance in making your final order selections. I do not run your ordering appointment with a ‘pushy sales pitch’, I simply provide input on what would work well in terms of crop, size etc. based the images you have selected and our discussions surrounding your personal home decor and style.

          Your prints and products are sourced from high quality professional printing labs. Yes, you can get items printed on the high street for a lower cost, but my products are designed to be displayed for many years and survive the test of time and so the quality and standard of production reflects this. Digital images are a purchase option for those clients that which to source their own products.

          I hope that this article goes some way to demonstrating the care, love and attention that I put into providing the best possible service to my clients. I want each and every one of you to choose me for my unique personal style and to love every image that I create for you. Photography and creating timeless memories are my passion and I want this to shine through in the service that I offer to you all.

          I look forward to welcoming you to the Spalding photography studio soon.
