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.

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.

    Why have an Engagement Photo Shoot

    Why have an Engagement Photo Shoot

    Why Choose an Engagement Photoshoot?

    16th January 2018

    Slice of Life Photography - Pre-wedding photo in the Bluebell Woodlands

    Many Photographers, myself included, offer a pre-wedding photoshoot or engagement shoot as part of their wedding packages. During wedding consultation meetings couples often ask me why they need more photos as a couple when they will have loads taken on their wedding day. Hopefully by the end of this it will be clear that there are many benefits to opting for an engagement photoshoot.

    It is easy to overlook the ‘engaged’ time within your relationship. Once that ring is on your finger life revolves around planning the big day, an engagement shoot is a great way to mark this significant milestone within your relationship and record the start of the next chapter of your lives together.

    A pre-wedding Photoshoot is a great opportunity to practise for the big day. I’m sure that you haven’t had many opportunities to create fun, relaxed and romantic photos of you together as a couple. Having a pre-wedding engagement shoot is a fantastic chance to work with your wedding photographer and have some fun. Find out how they work while they learn about you as a couple. It is a chance to laugh and celebrate your love for one another in a romantic relaxed environment.

    For me as a photographer, it really does help with the preparation and planning for your big day. On your wedding day timings are tight and nerves are running high, having spent some time with you previously in front of the camera I have a better understanding of what will make you smile and what posing and styling works naturally for you as a couple.

    You will probably spend more time with your photographer than any other person on your wedding day, so having a pre-wedding shoot and spending time with them ahead of the big day helps to reduce tension and any embarrassment you may feel in front of the camera.

    More and more couples either have children from previous relationships or have started their families before getting married. It naturally follows that the children are a big part of the wedding proceedings. Including your children in your pre-wedding photoshoot is great fun and helps them to overcome the nerves they may have around strangers and prepare them for being in front of the camera on the big day.

    Your engagement photos are actually very useful. Many of my couples have included photos from their pre-wedding shoot within their wedding planning, on invitations, order of service or a signing board at the wedding.

    So please put some consideration into having a pre-wedding engagement or couples photoshoot with your wedding photographer and capture some extra special memories.

      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.

        Lincolnshire Photography Studio 2017 review

        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
