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.

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.

Are you looking for newborn baby photography in Leicester?    Have you been thinking about having your newborn photographed?  It is such a precious time for you and your new arrival.  It’s also the perfect time for their first professional photography session.  You will never get this time back again, I know…  I am now a mother of teenage girls and I just cannot remember them as tiny babies anymore.  Thankfully I photographed them A LOT… during those early days and I have albums to prove it.   Albums that my daughters often look at today.

The recommended age for a newborn session is under 2 weeks old.  Around 7 days is just perfect for capturing sleepy, contented and very cute baby images.  A newborn photography session cannot be rushed and often during this 2 hour session we have to stop for changing, feeding and cuddles.  But don’t worry… I am patient and never rush baby photography.  Parents can sit back and relax whilst I do my thing…

Would you prefer for me to visit you at your home and photograph your new arrival with minimal fuss and no change to your routine? Often new mummies would like to stay at home rather than the preparations involved for a studio visit.  The home visit fee is  £95  and includes a 10×8 complimentary print.  This fee is for home visits in Leicestershire.   I will spend around 2 hours at your home, photographing your new baby quietly and patiently and with minimal fuss.  I understand that I need to be patient and work around the necessity for feeding, cuddles, comforting and changing. Just a cuppa to keep me going, and you can leave me to it.  You will be invited to my studio a couple of weeks later to view your images and select your favourites to purchase.  I offer beautiful wall art, desk prints, albums and digital files and there are samples on display at my studio.

Alternatively you can bring your newborn baby to my studio here  at the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire.  This session fee is £60 for up to two hours of photography and this session also includes a complimentary 10×8 print.  Again, you will be invited back  to the studio a couple of weeks later to view your images and select your favourite images to purchase.

I also have beautiful hand made Gift Vouchers from £60,  so if you are planning a Baby Shower and want to purchase something really special from all of the family and friends for the ‘mummy to be’ please call me on 01455 233224. Or email info@lesleybee.co.uk for further information.  I am happy to post out Gift Vouchers for photography sessions free of charge.

This beautiful little baby boy was photographed at home and he was just perfect.  I also photographed his mummy and daddy having cuddle time with their new baby boy…  Perfect!  So…  if you are looking for newborn baby photography in Leicestershire, then look no further and give me a call today.  Don’t hesitate, you will never get those early days  back again with your newborn baby.

Are you a ‘mum to be’?  Congratulations!  I am sure you are so very excited about the prospect of your new baby arriving.  It is such a precious time when you first come home with your newborn baby and it’s definitely the perfect time to think some photography of the new arrival.   The perfect age for photography of  newborns  is under 10 days old.  This is the age when they are most settled and easier to photograph.  Newborn baby photography cannot be rushed, and my photography session with your new baby can take up to 2 hours (sometimes longer).   The photography session will often need to stop for cuddles, feeding and changing.   To get those perfect sleepy poses and content expressions requires time and patience, but it’s absolutely worth it.  You will never get this time back with your precious newborn.   I offer two options for your newborn baby photography.  You can bring your baby to my studio in central Hinckley, or I can visit you at home.  The session fee for newborn baby photography at the studio is £60 and includes a 10×8 mounted image.  If you would prefer to have your baby photographed in the comfort of your own home I can visit you there.  This session at your home is £95.00.  Often newborn babies are more settled in their own environment, with familiar sounds and smells and it’s nice for new mums to be at home too.

I do have a selection of newborn baby props including baskets, accessories, blankets etc.  However it is also more personal to you and your newborn baby if we can use your own blankets, hats etc.
