Precious times – Baby Photography

So many precious times that should be captured in beautiful photographs that you will treasure forever – baby photography being the perfect example.  It’s so easy to let the birth of your baby  pass by – and it will, absolutely in the blink of an eye.  But if you have booked a baby photography photo shoot you will have your beautiful, professional photographs to treasure these memories for many years to come.  big sister and baby

This sweet little pair came to the studio for a baby photography session and of course we had to capture some photographs of big sister having some cuddles with her new baby sister.  Mummy was so delighted that we managed to capture these beautiful photographs, alongside photographs of her new baby and we were super lucky that she was so settled that we managed to get some family and parent photographs too.  This session took around 2-3 hours and was peaceful and relaxed.

Time will go so quickly and your new baby will grow and change daily.  So don’t miss out on this chance for professional photography.  You can book your newborn photo shoot as early as scan stage or you can book towards the later stages of your pregnancy.  We will discuss a mutually convenient day and time for you and your family and when your new baby arrives we will confirm your appointment for your photo shoot.

The newborn photography photo shoots are very much baby led and I will work around feeding, cuddles and changing.  It’s a very relaxed studio photo shoot with lots of breaks and parents often comment on how it was nice to get out of the house for a few hours and to relax and switch off for a short time.

The newborn photography session information is available HERE including details of pricing details.  You may prefer to call and chat more about this lovely session so please feel free to call 01455 233224 if this is your preferred option.

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.

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.
