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

    Award Winning Wedding and Newborn Photographer

    2nd November 2016

    Since starting my photography business just over 3 years ago I have become more and more determined to better myself and develop my skills. Not only do I have a thirst for learning but it is important to me that your wedding photos and baby pictures are of the highest possible standard. Working from my purpose-built garden Studio in Market Deeping, just outside Peterborough has allowed me to offer Newborn, Children and Family Photography in a relaxed and homely environment which in turn leads to more natural, relaxed photographs.

    I attend regular training to learn new areas or build on the skills I already have and continually read and research new things. 2016 has seen me train with some of the world’s top photographers. In April, I spent 2 intense days with Kelly from Little Pieces Photography by Kelly Brown who has won photographer of the year many times in Australia. This training really helped me home in my posing and styling for Newborn Photography. In May, I spent a fantastic day finally learning an area of photography that I had longed to develop. Fran from Fran Stephenson Photography showed me the skills needed to create stunning Fairy Photos and last Sujata from But Natural Photography share her secrets for amazing outdoor portraits, something that I can apply to my wedding photography as well as outdoor family photography. In 2017 I am spending a whole week in Lake district learning lots more techniques and I cannot wait to get stuck in.

    Along with this training I am a member of 2 professional bodies. The Guild of Photographers and BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photography Association). Being a part of these allows me to tap into many learning resources and liaise with like-minded people which again helps me grow. Part of the resources within BANPAS are tutorials and learning material to ensure the safe posing and care of Newborns during their baby photoshoot.

    The Guild of Photographers run a monthly Image of the Month Award programme. Each month members enter images of their choice and these are judged against competition criteria. We are then able to seek feedback and advice on our images after awards have been released. This feedback is extremely valuable as it allows us to evaluate our work and gain advise on how we can improve and develop. Since joining the Guild I have entered several images and have been delighted to have received 9 Bronze Awards. Bronze Awards are only awarded to images of a strong standard in this national competion (something to be proud of). My target for 2017 is to grow further and work on receiving some Silver Awards.

    Thank you for stopping by and reading my ramblings. Here are my 9 award winning Images.
