Booking Now OPEN

 

As I’m sure your all aware by now I love Christmas.  I love the magic, the sparkle, the quality time with my family and watching my little ones faces light up with wonder.  It truly is a precious time.  Every year I embark on a Christmas Photoshoot with my own children which is turned into Christmas cards for family members, and every year those family members comment on how nice it is to receive such a personalised card.

 

Award winning Christmas Photoshoot

 

This year I am offering something slightly different in the studio.   This year’s Christmas Photoshoot includes 2 extra special images.   The first of which is my award winning magic book images.  Created with a simple setup in the studio and extra sparkle added during the editing process this lovely images captures your children enjoying the delights of a Christmas story against the backdrop of christmas lights.

 

The second images included within this years Christmas photoshoot is this wonderful magic window scene.  This image is a composite and your children will be photographed against a plain background.   The magic window scene with your children looking up as Santa fly’s past is one of my favourites and looks amazing as a Christmas card for family or even as December if you you create calendars for grandparents each year.

2 Package option

 

When booking for this year you will be given the option to add an additional 2 images to your shoot.  These to additional images include the window scene but looking out at a cheeky snowman and secondly the wonder of the snow globe.  Every child loves snow globes and their expressions as they marvel in the delight of the falling snow makes for great photos to celebrate the Christmas season.

Wedding Photography – Marriot Hotel, Peterborough

 

Jake and Beki’s wedding photography had been booked in my diary over 2 years in advance so it was wonderful when their wedding day finally arrived.  They chose The Marriot Hotel in Peterborough as the location for their day, with it’s beautiful gardens this hotel makes a lovely setting for a wedding.

Whilst Beki and her bridesmaids prepared for the day, emotions were a little crazy with bets on who would cry first, I think Beki was the winner.  Emotions continued to run high throughout the day with tears from the father or the bride, the groom and Maid of Honour all being noted and captured on camera as part of the couples wedding photography collection.   I think the speeches finished everyone off (including me) with noticeable some of the best I’ve heard (and I’ve sat through a lot of wedding speeches).

The wonderful summer we have been experiencing this year did not disappoint and the sun shone bright throughout the day meaning the lovely gardens were taken full advantage of for some fun garden games during the reception.  The wonderful weather also allowed us to capture some wonderful wedding photography in the gardens,  a combination of candid and posed photos were captured throughout the day.

I would especially like to thank Mr and Mrs Mckenzie for trusting me when I suggested that they should request that guests took no photos when they left the ceremony or during the first dance.   The professional Wedding Photography is noticeable improved by the absence of phones and cameras, instead these are replaced with smiling emotional guests watching the happy couple.    Beki and Jake, thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer, here is your wedding day story.

Learning is never ending

1st June 2018

I have often shared posts on Facebook with you all about training I have undergone as part of my photography journey. I am a firm believer that you never stop learning and that to be the best newborn and children’s photographer I can be that I need to develop and improve my skills regularly.

Last year I invited the wonderful Claire Elliott from Forever Memories Photography to my studio for a 1:1 training day to work on my Newborn posing skills. I was so inspired by her teaching and everything that I learnt that I was quick to enrol for her 1 week residential training retreat in May of this year.

This course took place near Ashbourne in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, in a beautiful converted Barn. Myself and fourteen other likeminded photographers spent five wonderful days immersed in all things photography.

We studied from dawn to dusk (and that is no over-exaggeration), covering everything from photographing newborns, posing and styling for little sitters, toddlers and older children, lighting techniques, photographing outdoors, editing techniques, business management and for me the most important one, a session surrounding being a responsible photographer and baby / child first aid.

The week was very intense with lots of learning and hands on practise with some wonderful children and models, we even spent time practising on one another to capture some up to date head shots. It truly was an amazing week with a wealth of knowledge learnt and some amazing friends made.

I look forward to putting into practise what I have learnt with you all soon.

      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.
