Party Photo Shoots Leicestershire

One of my favourite studio sessions is my party photo shoot package which is just the best fun ever, and I’ve been doing quite a few of these shoots just recently.  What more could a photographer ask for when a group of young girls arrive, mega excited and  wanting to be photographed, with lots of ideas for poses too.  Total madness and laughter all the way through.  I love it!  For more information on my party photo shoot sessions please contact Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.  You can see more images from these shoots at www.portraitsbyartography.co.uk

Young Artists Open Exhibition – Atkins Building Hinckley

I attended the Young Artists Open Exhibition at the Atkins Building last night, to photograph the ‘Private View’ .  It really was a fantastic evening and the work on display in the gallery was outstanding.  There were cash prizes for the winner and runner up for both categories, 11-15  and 16-19 years.    I think the judges had a pretty tough job to choose the best pieces of work  because it was all so individual.   Live music was provided by  a young band called ‘Living Mystery’ with drinks and nibbles provide by Cafe Impressions in the Gallery.     The whole event was run by Creative Hinckley working alongside Lindsay Orton the Creative Communities and Tourism Officer at Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council.    If you are interested in becoming a member of Creative Hinckley just visit the website.  These are just  a few images from the evening below:-

No Day is So Bad It Cannot Be Fixed With a Nap…

This little cherub was photographed in the comfort of her own  home and I used natural light only for her photo shoot.   Studio lights can sometimes be a little harsh on newborn babies, but thankfully the home where this photo shoot took place had an amazing loft conversion with sky lights.  The light was beautiful and the bedding and decor of the room was mostly white .  Perfect!   A newborn photo shoot cannot be rushed, and I am happy to work around the needs of mum and baby.   This shoot lasted around 2 hours and with breaks for comforting cuddles, a little feed.   If you would like to have your newborn baby photographed in the comfort of your own home, please contact Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.  We can arrange a mutually convenient time to photograph your baby without upsetting your routine.  Please visit my website at www.portraitsbyartography.co.uk

Location Photography

We are having such amazing weather lately and it has been great to get outside and take some location portraits.   I especially enjoy photographing children outdoors or at home.  The studio can be a difficult and strange environment to photograph small children and of course because it is such a confined space, the best photographs are usually taken within the first 15 minutes.  Any time after this and children have usually lost interest and are feeling a little ‘penned in’.   It really is far more relaxed if children are in a familiar environment such as their garden or a favourite park and  if they are photographed from a distance with a zoom lens they often don’t realise they are being photographed.  I really do hope this good weather is here with us for a long time – fingers crossed!   Just a selection of some images taken recently, including one of my daughter and our Cockapoo dog Ollie (my favourite boy!).  Please call me 01455 233224 for details of location portrait shoot packages and further information.  I can come along to your home  or a chosen location and spend some time with you and your family and take some photographs that you will treasure forever.   You can also see more portrait work at www.portraitsbyartography.co.uk
