Babies grow so incredibly quickly. It’s not long before those tiny new faces start to fill out and change, that lovely squishy newness starts to disappear as they put on weight and those tiny bodies start to grow. My newborn photo sessions are the perfect way to cherish that newness, to remember how incredibly tiny those toes were, how delicate those finger nails and how beautiful that sleepy brand new face looked.
My studio in The Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire is perfect for newborn baby photo sessions. It’s a beautiful airy space with plenty of room so parents can relax in comfort and enjoy watching their gorgeous new baby being photographed. A cappuccino also goes down well too… The sessions are relaxed and unhurried, they generally last around 2-3 hours so there is plenty time to break for feeds and cuddles. I’m incredibly patient so there’s no need to worry if your baby is a little restless. The comfort and safety of your little one is always the main priority so you will never feel rushed.
There’s a great selection of hats, wraps, blankets and props available in the studio and we will start the session with a chat about what you would like to use and what style of images you prefer. As you can see from the images we can keep everything very simple, we can use bowls and baskets and other props or we can aim for a combination of styles.
The perfect time for a newborn baby photoshoot is when they are between 5 and 14 days old, I encourage mums to reserve a date for the session later in their pregnancy to ensure that I have availability. Don’t panic if your baby has already arrived, just give me a call and I’ll do my best to fit you in.
The newborn session fee is £85 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 complimentary 10×8” desk print.
If you prefer I can also bring my portable studio set up to your home in the Leicestershire area. The session fee for a home newborn portrait photoshoot is £150 and also includes a viewing session and a complimentary 10×8 desk print.
If you would like to book your newborn session or request a copy of the brochure which is full of information regarding my newborn baby photo sessions, including what to expect, how to prepare and a full price list please give me a call on 01455 233224. 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.
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.
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.

Are you expecting a baby or have you just hatched? Would you like to capture these precious early days with a newborn baby photography session? These very early days go by so quickly, and it’s so important to capture your newborn baby in photographs, so that you can treasure these moments forever.
I offer newborn baby photography sessions in the studio or in the comfort of your own home. A studio photography session for your newborn is £60 and includes a complimentary 10×8 print. Or, if you prefer to stay at home and have me visit you there, you can book this option. A newborn baby photography session at your home is £95 in Leicestershire. Again, this session includes a 10×8 complimentary print.
The recommended age for your newborn photography session is under 14 days old. This is when your baby will be just perfect for those gorgeous sleep photographs and this ‘just fed’ milky smiles. However, the session takes up to 2 hours, sometimes longer, so that I can work around you and your baby. Often we have to stop for feeding, changing and cuddles.
If you are considering a newborn baby photography session, take a look at these ‘just hatched’ beautiful babies and call me today on 01455 233224.
These two just sparkled the whole way through their photo shoot. Toddler twins are often quite difficult to photograph as they are usually more interested in running around and going crazy for the whole time. However, this little pair were very well behaved, a complete joy and actually followed instructions too. Adorable…
I so love this shot… Still smiling whilst losing balance and tipping over during his studio photo shoot. If you would like a photography session of your baby, please call me, Lesley Bee on 01455 233224.
Photographing babies is great fun… But what is the perfect age you are probably asking? I would say definitely the newborn stage (under 2 weeks old) for those sleepy, early days. And definitely at home in their own environment. It is important to not disturb your newborn baby too much at such a precious time, and it’s really nice to work alongside mum and allow for feeding, cuddles and breaks (with a cuppa of course) – peaceful and quiet, with minimal fuss is so important. The next stage would definitely be to photograph your baby at around 6 months old… Sitting up, but not yet crawling is perfect. Your baby will be alert, interested, giggly and smiley and will stay in the same place but will enjoy interacting with parents and of course me!… Crawling babies will definitely want to explore and discover, and will find it upsetting being put back in the same place for the whole of their photo shoot.
If you would like to have your newborn baby photographed in the comfort of your own home this is charged at £80 for a photo shoot lasting up to 2 hours. A studio visit with your newborn baby is charged at £50. Again, please allow up to 2 hours for this photo shoot. The standard photo shoot of around 30-40 minutes in the studio is £35. This is perfect for older babies, toddlers, families, couples etc. Both photo shoots include a complimentary 10×8 print.
Family location portraits are great for small children. We can go to your favourite park and let the children run around and have fun. This photo shoot is also for up to 2 hours and is £80 including a complimentary 10×8 print.
Please call me, Lesley Bee to discuss your requirements. Telephone: 01455 233224
Would you like a newborn baby photography session in the comfort of your own home or at the studio? The absolute perfect age to photograph your new arrival is under 2 weeks old.
