Studio Portrait Photography in Hinckley, Leicestershire

I often feel very fortunate that I’m able to welcome anyone who books a portrait photography session with me to a studio that’s in a location as beautiful as the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire. The Atkins Building is a former hosiery factory that has been converted to a wonderful space that is now home to lots of creative businesses and even has a coffee shop.

My own space in the building is a lovely bright and airy photography studio. It’s very spacious so I’m able to offer studio portrait sessions right from babies through to larger groups such as extended families, corporate teams and groups of friends.

As you can see from this gorgeous group of cousins, the space is perfect for larger groups.

My studio portraits are very relaxed and informal and I’m endlessly patient. Which comes in handy, especially when photographing small children and pets!

I offer a friendly and personal service, starting with an initial consultation where we can chat about your portrait session, I can offer advice on clothing etc. and help with any other concerns you might have. I totally understand that booking a photography session might sometimes seem a little daunting.

Saturday studio portrait photography sessions cost just £60 and midweek sessions are £45. Your session fee includes my time and talent on the day, my skills in editing the best images and a viewing session where you will return to the studio and I will help you choose your favourite images. You will also receive a complementary 10×8” gift print.

I offer a range of beautiful products to display your favourite images including canvases, bespoke framed images, print collections, albums and digital collections. I’ll show you samples and take time to help with your choice at the viewing session.

Studio portrait photography sessions are available for all of the following:

Babies and toddlers
Teenagers (including groups of friends for birthdays etc)
Extended families
Corporate headshots (individuals and groups)

I hope you enjoy this small selection of just a few of my favourite images from recent portrait sessions in the studio.






If you would like to have a chat about your own studio portrait session or wish to request a full price list please call Lesley on 01455 233224 or fill in the form on the Contact Page.

Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions Available

Baby photography in Hinckley and LeicesterRecently I was asked why I offer home visits across Leicestershire for newborn photography sessions when I have my beautiful studio in Hinckley.

Many new mums are happy to escape the house for a couple of hours and relax in my studio whilst I photograph their new baby, but for others the thought of having to pack up everything needed to leave the house with a new baby as well as making themselves presentable can be overwhelming.

If you are a new mum and don’t feel ready to go out for a few hours I really don’t want you to miss the opportunity to have some beautiful images of your precious new baby whilst they are still tiny so I’ll happily pack up my equipment and come to you.

If you happen to be having one of those days where you just don’t seem to be able to get anything done there’s really no need to worry. I’ll get on with doing my thing and you can sit and relax, have a cup of tea and watch me work. You can even stay in your pyjamas if you like, I’ve had two babies myself and remember those days well so I won’t be the slightest bit surprised!

The ideal time to photograph your gorgeous newborn baby is when they are between 5 and 14 days old. The sessions can be booked whilst you are pregnant but don’t worry if your baby is already here, give me a call on 01455 233224 and I’ll do my best to fit your session into my diary.

There’s a lovely brochure available full of information regarding my newborn baby photo sessions, including what to expect, how to prepare and a full price list. If you would like a copy please give me a call on the number above. If you prefer you can head over to the Contact Page and fill out the form or send an email and I’ll get right back to you.
