If you are looking to book a photography session for you and your family, and you would prefer an outdoor photo shoot so that your children can run about and have fun, I could just be the lady for you! I love photographing families on location and I understand that a studio photography shoot can be a bit daunting, especially if you have young children. A formal studio with lighting can be a bit scary for small children, and even if they are not troubled being in unfamiliar surroundings, chances are they will become distracted and their attention span will be very limited. However, a photography session at their favourite park, your garden or a special and familiar place is guaranteed to be more fun, definitely more relaxed and ultimately just a little bit different.
If you wish to book a location photography family photo shoot, please call to discuss or book. A location shoot is £95 (within a 20 mile radius of Hinckley, Leicestershire) and this fee includes a complimentary 10×8 print. You will return for a viewing of your final images from the photo shoot around 1-2 weeks after the session, where you can select your favourite photographs from the day. I offer various collections including prints, wall art and digital files.
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.
Location portraits are becoming more and more popular when it comes to children and family photography. I firmly believe that children need space to run around and should be captured having fun and being children. The studio environment is perfect for working with controlled lighting, but not so good for controlling children. I would prefer to let the little ones have fun and capture their true personality. Location portraits start at £75.00 and this fee is inclusive of a 10×8 complimentary print. Around 1-2 weeks after your photo shoot I will present your images to you and you can select your favourites for prints, wall art or digital files. Please contact me, Lesley Bee on 01455 23324 to discuss your ideas and inspirations and I can visit you at home or at a favourite place to photograph you and your family. The images below were all taken either in the home, at the woods, park etc. And I love every one of them…
