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 specialist Newborn Photography 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 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 baby 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.

    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

      What to wear for your Photoshoot

      Studio Photoshoot – Clothing Ideas

      18th October 2017

      Many factors are important when creating the perfect photograph. Lighting, posing, facial expressions and clothing all play an important part. If one element is off balance the result can be that the final image doesn’t look right. Your photographer will work with you to ensure that most of these factors are set to create the perfect family portrait, however clothing is something you will need to consider in advance of your photoshoot. Whether it is a family portrait, photos of the children or a maternity photoshoot what you wear is an important factor, so below are some top tips from me to help you plan your outfits.

      1. Co-ordinate Outfits

      It is important to ensure that what each person participating in the photoshoot blends together well.  This doesn’t mean everyone should wear exactly the same colours and tones but it does mean that you should complement one another.

      1. Simplicity is best

      Photographers want to emphasis your faces and emotion and wearing plain clothing helps to avoid distractions within the photographs.Logo’s and patterns can draw attention away from you and your family.

      3. Be Timeless

      Try to avoid wearing clothing that represents the latest fashion. Timeless clothing such as jeans, or a classic style will still look good displayed in your home in years to come.

      4. Dress for the time of year

      This is particularly important if you have opted for an outdoor photoshoot. You want your images to make sense so consider where you are having your photos taken and dress appropriately for the location and time of year.

      5. Use accessories to show your personalities

      It is important that the portraits created show your personalities and style, so use simple accessories to do this without over powering the finished look. A pretty hair bow, soft scarf or funky shoes can all bring out your personality without distracting from the co-ordinated look.

      Wearing textures and layers can add depth and interest to a photograph whilst maintaining the co-ordinated colours. Linen, Lace, and cord can complement one another whilst helping to separate individuals.

      7. Shoes matter

      Don’t forget to think about your footwear. If you are in the studio it maybe that your photographer will ask you to go barefoot but for outdoor photoshoots your footwear can make or break an outfit.

      8. Be comfortable

      This is especially important for young children. You don’t want them in an outfit that they don’t like or find irritating. The likely outcome is they will be fidgety and tugging at their clothes during their photoshoot.

      9. Don’t forget hair and make-up

      Your make-up should be subtle and natural and compliment your chosen clothing. It is important that your hairstyle is representative of you, but it is also helpful to try and avoid your hair falling across your face to avoid distracting shadows and hair falling into the eyes.

      10. Consider your home decor

      This may sound like a strange thing to consider but you want your pictures to compliment your home, particularly if you are planning on displaying a wonderful piece of large wall art.

      I hope that you have found this helpful in planning the perfect outfit for your photoshoot. Your photographer will be the perfect person to chat to about styling ideas if you want further advice. At my photography studio near Spalding, Lincolnshire I have a range of outfits for many photo shoot styles so it is always worth asking as it maybe that outfits can be provided for all or some members of the family.

        How to celebrate your baby’s 1st Birthday!

        7th June 2017

         

        Ways to celebration your baby turning one

        Even though your baby won’t remember their 1st birthday celebrations, they still create wonderful memories for family, and hopefully some great photos you’ll treasure forever. It is all too easy to get yourself into a “Pinterest hole” trying to throw the most creative party ever, but here are some top tips on simple but fun ways to mark your little one turning one.

        1)  I’m sure you’ll want to throw a party.  Even though they won’t remember it, you and family will love watching them celebrate and have fun.  But keep it simple, a family BBQ or soft play fun with their friends.   You could include so quirky memories as part of your decorations.  A personalised homemade banner or a number one decorated with photos of baby.

        2) Take a photo of baby in a specific spot, one you can use each year.  Then take a picture in that spot each year so you can see them grow.  Against the front door would be a good place to show how much taller they are, or even next to their wall height chart if you have one.

        3) Make a time capsule. Include the headlines from the day’s newspaper, a recording of what is number one in the charts, a picture of the family and his little friends. Something special for them to open when they are grown up.

        4) Enjoy a nice family day out, a trip to the local petting zoo or somewhere similar.  Take lots of photos and enjoy making memories as a family.

        5)  This one’s my favourite.  Write your baby a letter.  This is something to do on each birthday and keep safe.  Then give them as a gift on their 18th Birthday.   The letters can be about anything you choose, how much you love them, the best and worst highlights of the year, maybe include a photograph too so they get a record of how they changed as they grew up.

        6) Book a family photoshoot. Record your baby as they grow with some professional family photos.  As my children have grown up they love to see pictures on the wall that include me too.

        7)  Book a cake smash photoshoot.  These are currently one of the most popular photography sessions I offer, they can be themed to represent baby’s emerging personality and create a wonderful record of baby’s special day. 

        8) Baby won’t need lots of toys and presents. Let’s be honest their toy box is over flowing already, but buy them something special they will be able to keep and treasure as they grow up.  Both my girls have a ‘treasured bear’ ornament that has the same name as them. 

        And finally don’t forget to celebrate your achievement too, you’ve survived the first year of parenthood, a year of nappies, sleepless nights, messy baby led weaning and teething. This needs to be recorded too, so once baby has worn themselves out playing with the cardboard boxes and balloons crack open the champagne and toast yourself to a job well done. 

         

        Do you have any suggestions to add?  What did you do to celebrate your baby turning one?  I’d love to hear in the comments below.

          Milestones Photography Package – Lincolnshire Photography Studio

          My milestones photography package captures the three stages of babies development in their first year. Recording these moments are a permanent reminder of the early days that are gone all too soon. Your baby will grow, change and develop so quickly in their first year and it is all too easy to forget how tiny and cute they once were. With a milestone photography package, you will be able to record your Baby’s first few days, capturing all their little features and their new-ness with my natural sleepy shots, you will also get to capture them as they start to sit up by themselves and their cute little personalities start to shine through and finish their first year with a first birthday cake smash photo shoot.

          A milestones photography package includes 3 photo shoots within my purpose-built photography studio near Spalding, Lincolnshire.

          Here’s what you get:

          Newborn Photography Session

          This session is led by baby’s needs and as a result, can last up to 3 hours, this allows lots of time for feeding, cuddles, and nappy changes as and when needed.  Every baby and family is unique and part of my job is to ensure that I work with you to create newborn photos that will be treasured by your family for years to come.  In order to capture the curled up sleepy poses that we all adore Newborn Photography sessions are best carried out in the first 2 weeks after your baby arrives.

          Sitter Photo shoot

          Between 6-9 months is a great time for your next session as baby will be able to sit unaided, will be smiling and developing their own little personality.  These sessions last about 45 minutes (babies tend to lose focus and concentration if we run for too long).

          First Birthday Cake Smash Photoshoot

          A cake Smash and Splash Birthday Photograph session includes 3 elements.  First a mini photoshoot to capture some formal photographs of your little one, a cake smash photoshoot, (Cake and Props are supplied as part of the package), and finally a little tub time in our wonderful child size roll top bath to allow your little one to clean up after the sticky cake fun. Each part is recorded in photographs, creating magical memories of your little one’s special day.   Our cakes are individually prepared by the lovely Hannah at Iced Rose, and tailored to your specific theme.
