Newborn Baby Photography in Hinckley, Leicestershire

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.

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.

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 newborn baby photography session takes around 2 hours, sometimes up to 3 hours, depending on how your baby settles into the photo shoot. However, I will ensure that the photo shoot is not rushed and is calm and relaxed for your baby and of course, for parents too. A cappuccino and comfortable sofa awaits you!

Newborn Photography Leicester

Are you expecting a baby and have you thought about having your new arrival photographed?  It is such a precious time when your newborn baby is born and it’s absolutely the most perfect time to have your baby photographed.  I can photograph your newborn baby in the comfort of your own home so that you can relax, drink tea and be in the comfort of your own surrounds,  and let me capture some precious photographs of your baby.  Alternatively, if you prefer, you can bring your newborn baby to my studio in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

The most perfect time to photograph your newborn baby is under 2 weeks old.  This is when they are at their most sleepy.  But I understand that sometimes newborn babies can be unsettled and require breast feeding, cuddles and changing.  This is why a newborn baby photography session can take around 2 hours (sometimes longer).  Patience, understanding and a sense of humour are very important when photographing newborns…

If you wish to book a newborn photography session please call me and we can discuss the options available to you.  Newborn sessions are usually booked in as soon as your new baby arrives.


Baby Photography Leicester

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 to be photographed with your family?  Or do you want studio photography of your children?  Perhaps you would like to have your newborn baby photographed in a studio environment or is your four legged friend so special that you would like to bring your dog into the studio for a photo shoo?  I offer a very relaxed,  fun portrait photography experience and will ensure you enjoy your time in front of the camera.  The studio portrait photography is £35 for a session and this fee includes a complimentary 10×8 print.   At your viewing (around 1 week after your photo shoot) you can select from prints, digital files or Wall Art for your home.  If you would like to book with me – Lesley Bee, please call 01455 233224 to discuss your requirements, your ideas and inspirations.  If you can book in your session during the week (sessions available day time or early evening) you will receive 10% off your order at your viewing.
