Mini Newborn Photoshoot

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.

      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.

        Lincolnshire Photography Studio 2017 review

        Lincolnshire Photography Studio 2017 review

        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

          Top tips for your Newborn Photoshoot

          Top tips for your Newborn Photoshoot

          Top tips for your Newborn Photoshoot

          18th October 2017

          Slice of Life Photography - baby on bum up pose on curved stool by Slice of Life Photography, specialist newborn photographer Holbeach

          Congratulations on booking your newborn photoshoot with Slice of Life Photography. I am very much looking forward to meeting you and capturing some precious timeless baby photos for you and your family to treasure. In order to ensure your newborn photography session runs as smoothly as possible here are some top tips to help you prepare for your baby’s photoshoot.

          Keep me informed

          Please let me know as soon as possible after baby has arrived so that we can confirm a date for your newborn photoshoot. Baby Photography Sessions are best carried out within the first 14 days.  After 2 weeks they start to stretch out and stay awake for longer periods so it is more difficult to encourage the deep sleep required to capture the curled up poses you will have seen on my website.

          A well-fed baby is a happy baby.  With this in mind, I ask that you come prepared to feed baby on arrival and top up on demand throughout the newborn photoshoot.  Having a full belly will help your baby fall into a nice deep sleep, you will hear me refer to this as being milk drunk, and a nice deep sleep means the session will progress quicker and more calmly for baby.


          Although it is possible to create some beautiful images while your baby is awake and alert, the styled curled up posed images displayed throughout my website require baby to be sound asleep.   In order to facilitate this, I ask that where possible please try to keep your baby awake in the couple of hours leading up to the session.

          Babies are unable to regulate their own body temperature and they will be naked or lightly clothed for the majority of their baby photoshoot so the studio will be very warm during the session.   If you’re not sweating it probably isn’t warm enough for baby, so come prepared with layered clothing so you can remove layers and cool off.  It is also sensible to bring a change of clothing as we all know accidents happen and I’d hate for you to have to travel home in yellow poop stained clothing.


          Plain, neutral clothing works well for family photos so please consider this when choosing your outfit. You may find my blog post on What to wear for your photoshoot a useful point of reference.  Please bring baby in loose fitting, easy to remove clothing, this will achieve two things.  Firstly, it will reduce the chances of seam, elastic marks on babies skin and secondly if baby arrives at the studio fast asleep the session will be able to get underway without waking baby.  If baby arrives in clothes that are fiddly to remove the chance of waking them whilst undressing them are much higher.

          Newborn photoshoots last on average of 3 hours but be prepared to be here up to 4 hours.  With this in mind I try to schedule sessions to start at around 10am.  Be sure to have a filling breakfast and bring snacks with you.  Bottled water will be available at the photography studio.

          What about big brother or sister?

          Newborn photography sessions can include family photos if desired, however as already mention the studio gets very warm and sessions are long. With this in mind I don’t recommend that siblings remain for the whole session. We will discuss if family photos are completed at the beginning or the end of the session and siblings can join us for the first or last hour to allow them to be included.

          Bring a Dummy!

          I understand that many Mums try to avoid using a dummy, especially if you are trying to establish a positive breastfeeding routine.  However, please consider bringing a dummy to the session, even if it is the only time it is used.  Having a dummy to hand can help to settle baby into poses quicker and more calmly, making the newborn photoshoot a more relaxed enjoyable session for everyone.


          When you arrive at my Spalding Photography studio I will chat with you about your baby, your delivery experience and what you would like from your newborn photoshoot.  It is helpful to think about this ahead of time. Do you have any colours or props in mind?  Feel free to browse the images on my website and make a note of any images that you particularly like.  Sessions are very much led by how baby responds to posing and although not every baby will be happy to be posed in certain ways I will always try to accommodate any special requests.

          During your newborn photography session I will take the lead and provide baby with much of the required care. This helps to keep baby calm and reduces the risk of baby becoming distracted by the smell of Mum’s milk. There will be times throughout the session I will call on Mum or Dad to assist as a spotter to help ensure baby is safe at all times, however the rest of the time you will be able to sit back, enjoy a little down time and relax.

          If you have any questions ahead of your newborn photography session, please don’t hesitate to drop me a message or give me a call and I’ll be happy to help. I look forward to welcoming you and your new baby soon.
