Back To School Minis 2021

Back To School Minis 2021

It’s August now and my Back To School Minis are live and ready for booking.  

 

Not only is this a fun activity to do during the holidays, these images create that snapshot of exactly how our child was when they started this new school year in September.

If you’re like me, I forget those small things about my kids.  I forget exactly how they are and what they liked.  And this, as a Mum, is what I love about this photography session.  This is why it’s one of my favourite mini sessions that I do.

As the chalkboards are digital, I can change them up and adapt them to suit the age of your child.  This makes them perfect for nursery starters, Reception starters, starting a new school, going into a new year group or even going to Secondary school.

The mini session lasts about 20 minutes.  You’ll need

full school uniform

school bag

teddy

favourite book

You can reserve your session by booking on the following link

https://nickibyrnephotography.bigcartel.com

Once you’ve purchased your session, I will contact you to arrange the date and time.

Simple!

 

You’ll get a gallery of 10 images to choose from.

The chalkboard image (both printed and digitally) is £45

5 digital images and matching mounted prints £99

10 digital images and matching mounted prints £125

 

All digitals are sent via a digital download link

Prints will be available to collect from the studio approximately 2 weeks after the order has been placed.

 

Spaces are LIMITED and only available until the first week of September.  Make sure you book today so you don’t miss out.

Christmas Family Photos With Santa

Christmas Family Photos With Santa

Christmas may look a little different to normal this year, but I can certainly tell you that Christmas is FAR from cancelled.

As many family photographers, my Christmas Mini Sessions sold out very quickly.  They do every year!  Add that to a November lockdown and families are now struggling to get those beautiful family photographs with Father Christmas that they so desire.

Well look no further … I have the answer and it couldn’t be any easier.

Introducing my Family Father Christmas Photographs.

I have a choice of 10 different Santa backgrounds which have been shot by one of the most recognized newborn photographers in the world, Ana Brandt in the USA.

 

These gorgeous images are put together by myself taking either a photograph you’ve had with me in my photography studio or the favourite image you have taken this year of your children/family.

Some of the Santa pictures are more suited to landscape pictures and some are more suited to portrait pictures.  But I can be here to help guide you to make the perfect match.

How to order.

It really couldn’t be simpler.  Send me a message on 07850087754 or an email hello@nickibyrnephotography.co.uk to register your interest for one of my Santa pictures.  Then choose the image you’d like to go in along with which of the Santa backgrounds you’d like best.  Then let me do all the hard work.  Your stunning picture will then be sent to you via a digital download link and the digital image is yours.  You can print it, make it in to cards, share it on social media or just have it as a lovely memory.  

Price

These Christmas digitals are only £10 for one, £18 for two or £24 for three different digitals.

I can’t believe how popular these digitals have become this year.  I guess it’s mostly because we know that a lot of our Santa experiences will be closed this year.  And with social distancing in place, visits to Santa won’t quite be the same.  I know that all the families that have bought these digitals so far from me this year have been so pleased.  Their children have been fascinated that Santa is holding a picture of them.  It’s definitely proving to our children that Santa knows they’re on the Nice List.

 

Autumn Family Mini Photoshoot

Autumn Family Mini Photoshoot

My Autumn Minis are the ultimate family photography session. I LOVE THEM! It’s the perfect time of year to get some incredible outdoor family photos. Imagine having sorted everyone’s Christmas presents by the end of October. These colours will look stunning in prints but even more so printed as beautiful wall art.

My Family Autumn minis will be held on Saturday 24th October 2020 in Sutton Park.

These mini sessions last 20 minutes so are perfect for families.

Due to covid restrictions, I can only take one household at a time.

You get to view your images on an online gallery and the price includes 3 digital images of your choice with the option to add additional prints, wall art or digitals.

In the lead up to the session, you will receive a preparation guide which will help with outfit choices. I also enjoy discussing any wardrobe choices with you before hand too!

Message me today https://www.nickibyrnephotography.co.uk/contactme to get your Autumn Mini session booked 🙂

Christmas Family Minis Photoshoot Time!

Christmas Family Minis Photoshoot Time!

Well the temperature has dropped and the heating is on (just me?!) so I guess it’s time to think about those Christmas Minis, right?!

This year has been a very strange one for families.  Many exciting things have been postponed or cancelled and our spring/summer was not quite as we had imagined.  It will be great to have something exciting to look forward to … so get your Christmas Mini session booked now!

 

Christmas Mini family sessions are on Saturday 7th November or Sunday 8th November.

Christmas minis sutton coldfield

Our family Christmas Minis this year include our bed set up.  There will only be one set up this year as the sessions will be taking place in my home studio in Sutton Coldfield (not the studio in Tamworth) and so I am limited with space.

All Christmas minis are up to 20 minutes and are for immediate family only (due to covid restrictions).  Siblings and parents can come and sit on my ‘bed’ for portraits, read a story together, enjoy a milk (choice of milk, chocolate milk, banana milk or strawberry milk) and cookies, pose with stockings ready to be hung up for Father Christmas and maybe end with a pillow fight!  If you have something you’d like to include in the family photoshoot (for example teddy bears, a story, a present etc), you are more than welcome to bring them along.  Please make sure you arrive in your pyjamas or Christmas jumpers (if that is what you’re choosing to wear).

 

There are two different packages available:

£55 will include the session fee and 3 mounted 8×10″ prints of your choice

£70 will include the session fee and 3 digital images of your choice sent via digital download

 

As always, you are welcome to purchase any additional images, prints or wall art should you wish.

Special Christmas products are available including these cute tree decorations or the snowglobe.  All come with your choice of image from the session.

These images will make the perfect family Christmas cards or presents for Grandparents.

Sessions are already selling quickly so message me to get yours booked in today!

Due to my covid safe policy, there are a very limited number of 20 minute Christmas minis slots this year.

There will be an hour between each session to allow for a thorough clean.

A £35 non-refundable booking fee secures your Christmas minis session – your session is not confirmed without the deposit payment.  The remaining balance is due on the day of your family session.

 

Should I have to postpone the sessions due to covid (either myself needing to self isolate or local lockdown restrictions), the sessions will be rearranged at a date and time conveinent for both you and me.

Back To School Mini Sessions

Back To School Minis

 

After the year we had at school last year, going back to school in September really is something to celebrate for teachers, children and parents alike.

 

As a teacher, I used to love seeing my class on the first day of September.  All their uniform pristine, hair all in place and huge smiles on their faces.  They were always full of funny stories of things they had done and seen over the summer holidays.

 

This year will definitely be even more special.  Weird, but special.  Which is why I have decided to launch these Back To School mini sessions.

Whether your child is going to a new year group, new school or starting school for the very first time I have a chalkboard to suit you.

There are 4 different chalkboards to choose from: First Day in Nursery, First Day in Reception, Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) or Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6).  I can make a Secondary School one if you like too!

Our children grow and change all the time.  We don’t even realise how quickly too.  That’s why something like this is so lovely – a great way of recording how your child is right now.  Their likes, their friendships and what they want to be.  They will LOVE looking back at these when they’re older – I know I would have.

With covid related guidance changing regularly, many parents have discussed their worries that there may not be school photos taken this year which is why they were so excited to book this session with me.

My Back To School Mini sessions are available until the 6th September.

Sessions last up to 20 minutes per child.

For only £45, you get the session, a digital file of your choice with print release and a matching mounted 8″ x 12″ print

 

There is a discount for sibling bookings.

 

I only have a limited number of sessions available now so get in touch with me to book yours before I am fully booked!

Award Winning Newborn Photographer

Award Winning Newborn Photographer

I wrote a blog before about the benefits about being involved with The Guild of Photographers.  One of those benefits is being able to enter into the Image of the Month competition. 

 

Every month, all members have the option to enter their images into a variety of categories.  There are set criteria that must be fulfilled in order to enter.  Images are then judged by a panel of 3 of their master craftsment (absolute top of the game photographers) and given a score.  That score could be converted into a Bronze, Silver or Gold award depending on how high the image scored.

 

I’ve not had the guts to enter before.  Having only started my newborn photography journey 2 years ago (Thank you Facebook for reminding me of that last week!), I am still at the beginning of my journey.

 

Maybe it was the effect of lockdown that pushed me over the edge – haha! – but this month I entered a few images into the image of the month competition.  

 

21st of every month is results day and they’re usually posted at 12pm.  I kept refreshing from about 11;45 just incase.  I don’t think I was this nervous about getting my a-level results!  But at 1pm I refreshed again and 

 

I GOT A BRONZE AWARD!!!!!!!!!

 

My other images were classified which is still really good and I am absolutely super proud of myself and how far I have come in my journey so far.

 

So I am now an award winning newborn photographer.
