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)
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.
It’s taken me a couple of years to get my head around rebranding from ‘Artography’ to my new business name Lesley Bee Photography. Artography always felt a bit too ‘corporate and impersonal’ and I pride myself in offering the absolute opposite… a very personal service to all of my clients. Photographing weddings and portraits and working hard to ensure that each and every person I work with feels relaxed, and has fun in front of my camera is my ultimate goal.
Juggling my photography, my children, and dog walking… not forgetting my role as a wife (yes… Mr Bee comes at the bottom of the list but he knows that) – I haven’t had time to think straight some days, but now I have got my act together and decided to focus on a new direction for the Lesley Bee brand, including this new website, new logo etc . It was the obvious next move once I moved into my new studio over a year ago at the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire. So, here it is… my new website. It’s still in its early stages but getting there. Please take a look around, browse my portfolio and if you are looking for a wedding or portrait photographer with an informal, fun approach, please call me on 01455 233224, or you can complete the ‘contact’ form on this website and I will get back to you with any information you require.
