Location Family Portraits Leicestershire

I firmly believe that you can photograph outdoors any time of the year.  I also firmly believe that small children prefer to run around outside and not be restricted in a small, strange studio environment, with big lights and lots of distracting equipment.  Add to this, uptight parents who want their children to be on their best behaviour and sometimes it can be a recipe for disaster.  When I receive an email or telephone enquiries about family portraits, the first question I will ask mum is the age of her children.  If they are little (under 7 years old) I will do my best to encourage her to have a location portrait photography session.  It really is a ‘no brainer’.  Whatever time of year it’s the best fun.  In fact, I would positively encourage Autumn and Winter family photography sessions.  Fresh air, wrapped up in woolly scarves and wellington boots – perfect!   Colourful, fun and carefree.  We can meet at your favourite park or woods, or if you have a big garden (lucky you), I can come to your home.  You can get extended family involved in your photography session.  Invite grandparents and cousins and let me capture those photographs that you will truly treasure forever.  A home / location visit is £95 in Leicestershire and I will spend up to 2 hours with you and your family, photographing all of you and having fun.  The session includes a 10×8 complimentary print.  A viewing session will take place at my studio a couple of weeks later for you to select your favourite photographs from the shoot.

I often run mini sessions at Burbage Common whereby I will put aside a full day and offer photography sessions for around 45 minutes, but photograph a number of different families on the day.  These are very popular with local families here in Hinckley and surrounding areas,  and I know Burbage Common inside out as I regularly walk my dog at this beautiful little spot.  The mini sessions are £40  for families (maximum 6 at the session) and this is more than enough time to get some relaxed, fun, location photographs.

If you are interested in future dates for mini sessions at Burbage Common please call me, Lesley Bee on 01455 233224 or email info@lesleybee.co.uk.  Alternatively you can complete the ‘contact me’ form on this website.  If you are keen to book me for up to 2 hours at your home or chosen location, again, please feel free to call me to discuss your ideas and inspirations.  I can advise on clothing, locations and we can talk ideas and logistics.

Newborn Baby Photography Leicester

Are you looking for newborn baby photography in Leicester?    Have you been thinking about having your newborn photographed?  It is such a precious time for you and your new arrival.  It’s also the perfect time for their first professional photography session.  You will never get this time back again, I know…  I am now a mother of teenage girls and I just cannot remember them as tiny babies anymore.  Thankfully I photographed them A LOT… during those early days and I have albums to prove it.   Albums that my daughters often look at today.

The recommended age for a newborn session is under 2 weeks old.  Around 7 days is just perfect for capturing sleepy, contented and very cute baby images.  A newborn photography session cannot be rushed and often during this 2 hour session we have to stop for changing, feeding and cuddles.  But don’t worry… I am patient and never rush baby photography.  Parents can sit back and relax whilst I do my thing…

Would you prefer for me to visit you at your home and photograph your new arrival with minimal fuss and no change to your routine? Often new mummies would like to stay at home rather than the preparations involved for a studio visit.  The home visit fee is  £95  and includes a 10×8 complimentary print.  This fee is for home visits in Leicestershire.   I will spend around 2 hours at your home, photographing your new baby quietly and patiently and with minimal fuss.  I understand that I need to be patient and work around the necessity for feeding, cuddles, comforting and changing. Just a cuppa to keep me going, and you can leave me to it.  You will be invited to my studio a couple of weeks later to view your images and select your favourites to purchase.  I offer beautiful wall art, desk prints, albums and digital files and there are samples on display at my studio.

Alternatively you can bring your newborn baby to my studio here  at the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire.  This session fee is £60 for up to two hours of photography and this session also includes a complimentary 10×8 print.  Again, you will be invited back  to the studio a couple of weeks later to view your images and select your favourite images to purchase.

I also have beautiful hand made Gift Vouchers from £60,  so if you are planning a Baby Shower and want to purchase something really special from all of the family and friends for the ‘mummy to be’ please call me on 01455 233224. Or email info@lesleybee.co.uk for further information.  I am happy to post out Gift Vouchers for photography sessions free of charge.

This beautiful little baby boy was photographed at home and he was just perfect.  I also photographed his mummy and daddy having cuddle time with their new baby boy…  Perfect!  So…  if you are looking for newborn baby photography in Leicestershire, then look no further and give me a call today.  Don’t hesitate, you will never get those early days  back again with your newborn baby.
