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 email@example.com. 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.
