Family Photography

I’ve been photographing a lot of families at the studio just recently.  I have made the decision to take on less wedding photography jobs in 2014 and focus more on photographing in my studio and on location.  I really enjoy family photography sessions and have been working on a marketing plan to focus more on this area.  I am offering photography sessions either in my studio, or if you prefer, at your home or chosen location.  I really want to free up more weekends too.  So I am offering incentives for photography sessions in the week. The standard photography session price for a weekend shoot is £45 in the studio.  This fee includes a 10×8 print.  However if you can be flexible and can be photographed during the week, you will receive a £10 discount on this photography fee.  A week day studio photography session with your family, your dog, your friends etc is £35 and I can photograph you up to 7pm in the evenings.  You will also receive a 10% discount on your order at your ordering session.

If you are looking to have your family photography on location, either at your home or a favourite place such as the local park etc, a weekend session is £95 including a 10×8 print.  Again, if you can be photographed during the week, you will save money.   A week day photography session at your home or on location is £75 including a 10×8 print.  Again, you will receive a 10% discount at your ordering session.

So, if you have been thinking for a while about having your baby photographed, or you would like to get the family together for a fun, photography shoot please contact me on 01455 233224.  Or you can complete the contact form on this website.  If your dog is very much a part of your family, then bring your four legged friend along.  I absolutely adore dogs and have photographed many over the years.  If you are at home during the week and have a new baby or pre school children, you can also take advantage of the week day photography offer.

This portrait was taken of the beautiful Abbey during a photography session with her brother and sister.  We had some fun on the studio photography session.  And we also had a bit of time to capture a few timeless, classic portraits of the children.  Abbey is truly beautiful and was a pleasure to photograph.

Family Photography Leicestershire

It’s Spring!  Yes… I am now finally out of hibernation.  So I am very much looking forward to Summer and photographing families out on location, in the fresh air – fingers crossed for an amazing Summer this year.  Would you prefer to have your family photographed at your home or favourite place, rather than in a studio environment?  Location photography is great for more relaxed, story telling photographs and it’s especially  perfect for small children to be photographed at home or at their favourite park or play area.    Sometimes the restrictions of a studio space are not ideal for young children and they can become bored and restless quite quickly in the studio.  A location portrait shoot enables the children to run around outside, have fun with no restrictions, whilst I chase them around, photographing them doing fun their stuff and capturing their personalities.  Location portraits are much more relaxed and I find that I often capture the character of children when they are outside.  These are just  a few images of children photographed on location, and they are also photo sessions that I remember were lots of fun for the children and just as important,  stress free for mum and dad.

I have scheduled a location photography session day on Saturday 3rd May at Burbage Common, Hinckley and have just a couple of photography slots left.   This is a mini session which will last around 30 minutes, and the fee is £40 including a 10×8 mounted print.  If you would like to book a photo shoot for this day, please call me on 01455 233224.  If you prefer, you can book me to attend your family celebration or get together at your home to capture photographs of all of your extended family and friends.  You may be planning a garden party with your family and friends and wish to capture some lasting memories with your closest family and friends.  A visit at home is £95 and this is for around 90 minutes of photography, including a 10×8 print.   You are very welcome to call me to discuss this option and arrange for a photography shoot at your home… Simple, fun and hassle free…  What are you waiting for?  Contact me via this website or email me at info@lesleybee.co.uk.

Newborn Baby Photography – Leicestershire

Are you a ‘mum to be’?  Congratulations!  I am sure you are so very excited about the prospect of your new baby arriving.  It is such a precious time when you first come home with your newborn baby and it’s definitely the perfect time to think some photography of the new arrival.   The perfect age for photography of  newborns  is under 10 days old.  This is the age when they are most settled and easier to photograph.  Newborn baby photography cannot be rushed, and my photography session with your new baby can take up to 2 hours (sometimes longer).   The photography session will often need to stop for cuddles, feeding and changing.   To get those perfect sleepy poses and content expressions requires time and patience, but it’s absolutely worth it.  You will never get this time back with your precious newborn.   I offer two options for your newborn baby photography.  You can bring your baby to my studio in central Hinckley, or I can visit you at home.  The session fee for newborn baby photography at the studio is £60 and includes a 10×8 mounted image.  If you would prefer to have your baby photographed in the comfort of your own home I can visit you there.  This session at your home is £95.00.  Often newborn babies are more settled in their own environment, with familiar sounds and smells and it’s nice for new mums to be at home too.

I do have a selection of newborn baby props including baskets, accessories, blankets etc.  However it is also more personal to you and your newborn baby if we can use your own blankets, hats etc.

If you would like to discuss a newborn baby photography session, please call me on 01455 233224. Or you can email me at info@lesleybee.co.uk.  We can discuss your requirements and book in your photography session at a time / date to suit you.   This is just a selection of the beautiful babies I have had the pleasure of photographing recently.
