Cake Smash Photography, First Birthday Photoshoots in Hinckley, Leicestershire

Did you know that I offer Cake Smash Photography here at the studio in Hinckley, Leicestershire?

A cake smash portrait session is a fun and unique photo shoot often booked for a baby’s first birthday as an alternative to a more traditional studio session.


What To Expect From A Cake Smash Photoshoot:
 

Lots of messy fun! Your baby will be encouraged to smash up the cake and have lots of fun playing with it. They will get messy but the clean up is part of the fun, do be prepared and bring some spare clothing.

Three mini photo shoots all rolled into one fun session. Before the cake comes out we will create some beautiful studio portraits of your baby. Then out comes the cake and it’s time to get messy and take some fun and quirky pictures. Finally it’s time for the clean up and out comes the bath tub, we’ll create some more cute images and get your baby all cleaned up at the same time.

A unique set of images to remember their birthday. Every baby responds differently to the cake smashing so no two sessions are ever the same. Some babies dive straight in and there’s cake everywhere in no time at all. Others are a little more hesitant and might need some gentle encouragement, and who can blame them when it might be their first time encountering cake! However your baby reacts you can expect to view a set of wonderfully unique and fun images afterwards.

Due to the risk of food allergies parents are required to provide their own cake, if you require guidance on what type of cake will be best for smashing please don’t hesitate to give me a call.

The cake shoot session fee is £65 which 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.

If you would like more information or would like to book your cake smash photo shoot please call Lesley on 01455 233224 or fill in the form on the Contact Page.

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.

Studio Portraits Leicestershire

I am a little behind with my blogging…  ‘must try harder Lesley Bee’.  But thought I would just upload some recent favourite images from some portrait shoots here at the studio.  I have photographed some dogs, babies, teenagers and families just recently.  And each and every one of the clients that have come through the doors have been a joy to work with.  If you would like a studio portrait shoot, please do get in touch with me – Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.  The standard studio shoot,  lasting for around 30-40 minutes is £35 and includes a 10×8 complimentary print.  This is for a maximum of 6 in your group.  For larger parties, please call for details of prices.  Take a look at the images below and feel free to call me if you wish to discuss your studio portrait requirements.  I am located at the Atkins Building in Hinckley.

I also offer locations portraits starting from £80.  This is for a 1-2 hour photo shoot at your home or chosen favourite place.  With Spring on the horizon (once we get rid of this dreadful snow) a location portrait shoot may be the perfect session for you.   It is absolutely ideal for small children who like to run around and have fun without the restrictions of a small studio space.

World Book Day

Do you have children and have you been involved in World Book Day?  Well I’ve sent off my 12 year old today, dressed as Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.   Easy – one checked blue school dress, a white pinafore, plaits and the obligatory bright red shoes (shoes painted with red gloss paint – the shoe dye didn’t work).  Oh … and not forgetting Toto – one stuffed cuddly toy dog.  It then reminded me of a location portrait shoot I did last Summer with this lovely little girl who loved her books.  In fact, she read with her grandparents, she read on her own and one of these photographs is her with her auntie.  Maisy Mouse was her book of choice.  This portrait shoot on location in Coventry was really fun.  We had a picnic, we ran around the garden and this little girl had so much fun.  Her mummy was delighted with the final set of images which really showed the family relationship in familiar surroundings.  If you would like a family portrait shoot in Leicestershire, Warwickshire or Northamptonshire, please contact me – Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.

Children are the most expensive form of entertainment…

This is Eliot.  He made me smile – a lot!  Eliot had more energy than me and his mum put together.  We started our photo shoot in my studio here at the Atkins Building in Hinckley.  After 30 minutes of running around asking me lots of questions and jumping up and down like he was on a pogo stick, I made a very sensible decision to take Eliot outside and put my 70-200mm zoom lens on my camera and let him go ‘bananas’.  And you know what?  It worked.  We got the best shots of Eliot just by letting him run wild and be himself.  And this is why I prefer location photography with little children.  They can be themselves, run around just like they are supposed to  and I can stand back from a distance and shoot!  But, location photography isn’t just for children, it’s also perfect if you would like to be photographed as a whole family, or perhaps with your friends, or your fiancé  / loved one?  We can go for a walk and capture some natural moments.  It’s great…   If you would like to see further images from photo shoots on location please click the ‘portfolio’ link at the top of this page.

Children’s Portraits on Location

Would you prefer a location photo shoot of your family or children, away from the informality and confined space of the studio?  Location photography is the perfect way to let your children run around and have fun, whilst they are being photographed.  All of the images are taken using my zoom lens so I could photograph them from a distance and they could carry on having fun.   And the results?  Relaxed, informal photography of two little brothers spending time together.  For further information on children’s portraits on location, please contact Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.  I am  happy to meet you at your home or a favourite location to photograph your children.
