International Recognition for Local Photographer
Local Photographer, Laura Spence has gained international recognition by winning a significant award with the Guild of (Professional) Photographers.
The Guild is the highly regarded national photographic body whose members are dedicated to enhancing their skills in the art, craft and profession of photography.
It runs an Image of the Month Competition, and received around 12,500 entries during 2017, from photographers in the Uk and overseas!
Each image is scored, and the scores from the year are then totalled to determine who wins one of the Guild's Top 10 Photographer awards / becomes the Guild's Photographer of the Year. This is clearly a very demanding year long process!
Laura was honoured to become a Top 10 Photographer of the Year in the Newborn and Baby genre - a remarkable achievement when one considers the number and standard of the entries.
Steve Thirsk (Director of the Guild) said –
He is “both proud and delighted that Laura has achieved this recognition after 12 months of
submitting the highest quality images."
The Guild has very demanding standards when judging photographic competitions. The judging is undertaken by a panel of internationally recognised experts from a variety of photographic backgrounds, so Laura quite rightly should be delighted with her extraordinary achievement’
Members of the Guild are committed to achieving the highest standards of professionalism and to a journey of continuing professional development.

Winter Wedding at Norton House Hotel

January 02, 2018  •  2 Comments

I had a fantastic time this week capturing the wedding day of Helen and Gavin. Helen had wished for snow for her big day and what do you know we got.....a snow day! It was truly magical with the snow falling all around, festive feelings and the happiness of everyone there, it all made for a really amazing day and I felt really lucky to be able to be a part of it all. 

Back in the studio soon for lots of new 2018 babies and I just can't wait. I don't think my job could get much better at this point!

Hoping that all my customers and followers had a great Christmas and New Year. I will look forward to seeing lots of you again in 2018.

Here's a little preview from Helen and Gav's big day to share with you all.

With thanks to Kirsty at Bella photography who was my assistant..snow buddies!

I was so lucky this week to attend a workshop with photographers all over the uk to work on some outdoor work with Lisa mccormick photography. I had such a great day and I have planned for some time to add outdoor sessions to my session lists. 

These shoots are amazing for children who love to get outdoors and play, we combine, colourful clothing in our styling and toys and props to co-ordinate. 

I will have a few of these outdoor days planned over the coming months for more info please contact 

Here's a little look at some of the photos from the workshop and after workshop with my own little model. 

It's also super busy at Laura Spence Photography with bookings for chirstmas sessions filling up very quickly now. it looks like it's going to be a busy end of the year for me, thank you all x

It was great for us to get out of the studio last weekend to take photos of Danielle and Lee's wedding day at Dean Park Hotel in Kirkcaldy. What a great day it was and it was great to be a part of it having taken a lot of family photos of them in the past and with their two gorgeous kids Remy and Rio. 

Here's just a few of the photos taken on the day as a little preview for you all. 

Thanks again for choosing me to capture your big day guys <3
