Family Portrait Photography in Hinckley, Leicestershire

Here at my lovely bright and airy portrait studios in the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire I offer relaxed and informal family portrait photography for families of all sizes. My studio is spacious enough to accommodate larger groups and is easily accessible. It’s located in the centre of Hinckley with parking just across the road and disabled access if needed.

Whether you are booking a portrait session for a couple, for the children or even for a large extended family group you can be guaranteed a warm welcome, a relaxed and fun session and a professional and friendly service at every stage of the process. I offer a personal service which starts with an initial consultation where we can discuss your expectations for the photoshoot, we can chat about any ideas or inspiration you might have for your family portrait session or you can leave that part in my capable hands if you prefer! I’m endlessly patient, especially with little ones, and your session won’t be over until I have captured a great selection of beautiful images.

Weekday family portrait sessions are available up to 7pm and the session fee is just £45. You can also book a weekend family photoshoot at a session fee of £60. All sessions include a complimentary 10×8” print.

Your session fee includes my time and talent on the day and in editing the best images afterwards. You will be invited back to the studio to view your images and choose your favourites, you will be able to view sample products and I will take time to help you choose the best way to display your images.

Family Photography

So what do you look for in family photography?  Are you worried that you your children may not settle in a studio environment for your family photography session?   Please don’t be concerned.  I’ve been photographing families for ten years now and it’s very rare we have to re-shoot a photography session.

My studio sessions take place in my super light, airy and comfortable studio at the Atkins Building in Hinckley, close to the town centre.  It’s important to me that families enjoy their family photography session and I understand that a photo shoot requires patience, bags of energy and a sense of humour, especially with young children.  Often I will know when the children have had enough and I usually get my best photographs of young children within the first 15 minutes.  After this point in time the wonder and excitement of what’s going on will definitely wear off.  However if your child doesn’t settle immediately I have great patience and understanding and of course a few tricks to get them interested, co-operative and engaged.

It’s important to photograph the whole family together during the family photography session.  It is also a great little start to the family photography session to photograph the children with their parents.  It helps the children to relax, feel comfortable and secure if we take photographs of the whole family together.  Once the children have settled and feel comfortable being photographed I will then ask parents to sit back and relax whilst I take portraits of the children.

If you are thinking about a family photography photo shoot, please call me on 01455 233224 and we can discuss further.

Client Testimonials

I am a firm believer in ‘word of mouth’ referrals and the majority of my enquiries and bookings come from client testimonials.  First and foremost I try my upmost to provide a photography experience that is relaxed and fun.   I understand that having professional photographs taken can be a little daunting and something that most people do not experience very often.  I have met adults who have never been photographed professionally since since their wedding day…  And often children are only photographed professionally for their yearly school photograph.

I offer a truly personal service every step of the way for all of my clients.  From your initial consultation, right through to handing over your photographs, you will only liaise with me, Lesley Bee.

These are reviews posted on my Lesley Bee Photography business page following photo shoots with clients.  You can view these actual reviews HERE

Family Photographer

How are you enjoying your Summer Holidays?  Are you relaxed and sun tanned following your recent holiday?  Or are you praying for the sunshine to come back – fingers and toes crossed, trying to keep the children occupied and busy?   I am a family photographer in Leicester, specialising in studio and location photography.  Why not book one of my very special photography offers either at Burbage Common or here at my studio in Hinckley.  My Summer mini sessions at Burbage Common are perfect for your energetic little ones.   They can have fun and burn off some energy, whilst I chase around after them capturing natural, fun and relaxed photographs that really show their personality.

You may prefer a studio photography session.  This photo shoot is perfect for older babies, couples and families.  My studio is located at the Atkins Building, in the heart of Hinckley town centre and again, my photography sessions are always relaxed and informal.  Both of theses sessions include the photography time (approx. 45 minutes) and the location session includes 2 digital files on disc.  The studio session includes 3 digital files on disc.  This comes with full usage rights for you to print your own photographs.


Please note:  Both offers are for mini sessions at the studio or at Burbage Common.  This offer excludes newborn photography sessions.  A maximum of 6 for the photo shoot.  Full session fee is required to secure your booking.

If you are looking for your family photographer – look no further.  Call me to discuss your photography requirements.  01455 233224.
