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.

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.
