Another Photo Shoot in the Grounds of the Atkins Building

It’s so much more creative, walking around the Atkins Building taking photographs.  I get more inspired than in the confined space of my studio.  Although I photographed Victoria in the studio too, it was great to capture these images in the fresh air.  We had a relaxed, informal session, walking around the grounds of the Atkins Building, photographing Victoria using my 70-200mm zoom lens.  It’s much more informal when the lens is not too close to the subject…   If you would like to be photographed in natural light, using interesting features as backdrops for your photo shoot please call Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.  I can offer you a collection of images in both outside natural and studio light for your portfolio.    Please call or email for further information and prices.

A Beautiful Wedding at Hothorpe Hall, Theddingworth – Hayley & Jon

Hayley and Jon were married recently at the lovely, intimate venue Hothorpe Hall in Theddingworth, Leicestershire.  Hayley is quite quiet and shy but such an adorable bride to photograph.  Her bridesmaids were the complete opposite –  very outgoing and a bit mad, but a great support to Hayley on her wedding day.   The wedding ceremony was very emotional and it was interesting to hear from Hayley at their viewing recently, that she could hardly remember anything about the ceremony itself because she was so nervous and emotional.  Their ceremony was followed by a blessing in the chapel at Hothorpe Hall and then out into the beautiful gardens to take some more photographs.   If you would  like to enquire about wedding photography please call Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.

Make up by Mia. Flowers were by Jilly Flowers, Hinckley who will be exhibiting at the Sketchley Grange Wedding Fayre on Sunday 25th September.  We will also be exhibiting at the fair, so please come along and say hello.  .  .

Natural Light Photography in and Around the Atkins Building Hinckley

I love my studio space at the Atkins Building.  It’s light, airy and contemporary and always makes an impact when clients visit…  I am also so delighted that the Atkins Building itself is the perfect space to take photographs using natural light.  The newly built Hinckley College right next door, also offers some interesting backdrops for portrait photography.  Take a look at some of these shots taken using natural light and the space around me.  It was nice to walk around the building and outside space to create these shots of this lovely boy.  Great fun.

Hinckley Carnival Queen Competition 2011

I had a lovely evening recently, photographing the Black Tie Event at Hinckley Football Club to select this years Hinckley Carnival Queen.  This is the 4th year I have sponsored this event by providing the Carnival Queen, along with the Carnival Princess and Prince with a studio photo shoot as a prize.  I am proud to be a resident of Hinckley and love to get involved in the community and work with local businesses.

The girls who entered the competition were great fun, very professional and clearly they were all enjoying themselves.  The  stunning bridal gowns and cocktail dresses, along with the beautiful make-up were all provided by Liney’s Brides, Hinckley.  Entertainment for the evening was provided by the lovely Rebecca Howsin and Shelby Dance Academy.  And as in previous years Scott Bailey was on hand to compere the evening.   The whole event was organised by Kev  Whelan from Bar Vis’a’Vis and Paul Moss from the ‘Holiday Lounge’.  It was great to have local sponsors on board including Eden Beauty, Tulips Flowers, The Plough Inn and The Kase Hotel.  The overall winner was Victoria Evans who won a fabulous holiday donated by the Holiday Lounge and a photo shoot provided by me!  Just a few images below:-

A Bit of Everything…

I’m a bit snowed under at the moment and trying my best to juggle school holidays with my photography.  So this update is a bit of a mix of some of my favourite photographs taken just recently.  Some of the shoots I am still working on…

Below is a selection of images taken of  families photographed on location at Stapleford Park Hotel, Leicestershire, some outside shots here at the Atkins Building and at Coombe Abbey and a few taken in the studio.   If you would like further information on family photoshoots either on location or at the studio please call Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.  You can also view other work on my website.  This time of year is just ideal for lifestyle, location photo shoots for families. Let the children run wild and have fun whilst being photographed.  Much more relaxed portraits and fresh air too… Perfect!

In Between Weddings, Location and Studio Portraits… a Little Family Time

A trip out for the Bee family this weekend and some family photography purely for my own pleasure…  During our walk, I took lots of fun ‘Bee Family’ shots of my hubby and girls Maisie and Lydia, and our cockapoo Ollie.  We had a lovely walk at Hartshill Hayes, a picnic and of course, ice cream.. Lovely!  There are lots more but I only had time to quickly pull together this composite of my dear family being very silly…. I love it.  It’s great to capture relationships in a family during a portrait photoshoot alongside the family shots.  If you would like further information on portraits photoshoots on location in Leicestershire or the midlands, or family  photoshoots in my studio, please call Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.

Now I must get on with my real work…
