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.

Studio Portrait Photography in Hinckley, Leicestershire

I often feel very fortunate that I’m able to welcome anyone who books a portrait photography session with me to a studio that’s in a location as beautiful as the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire. The Atkins Building is a former hosiery factory that has been converted to a wonderful space that is now home to lots of creative businesses and even has a coffee shop.

My own space in the building is a lovely bright and airy photography studio. It’s very spacious so I’m able to offer studio portrait sessions right from babies through to larger groups such as extended families, corporate teams and groups of friends.

As you can see from this gorgeous group of cousins, the space is perfect for larger groups.

My studio portraits are very relaxed and informal and I’m endlessly patient. Which comes in handy, especially when photographing small children and pets!

Are you thinking about booking a portrait photographer?  Do want natural, very relaxed, fun photographs of you and your family?  If this is the case, I could be the lady for you?  I very much love to photograph families on location.  I find that children have far more fun being photographed outdoors where they can run free.  Studio photography is sometimes a little restrictive, especially if your children are a little lively.    Often parents can become a little tense if their children are not playing ball during a studio session.  However, allowing your children the space and freedom to run around whilst I photograph them, will inevitably lead to photographs similar to these examples shown here.  And just as important – you will enjoy the photo shoot and not get stressed or unhappy if your children don’t play by the rules in a studio environment.

I often run 45 minute ‘mini’ sessions at Burbage Common in Leicestershire.  However if you would like to book a ‘one off’ photography session, I can meet you at your favourite park, woods, or even come and photograph you in your garden at home.

Please call me on 01455 233224 to discuss a photography session and I will chat to you about locations, what to wear etc.

Photography should not be tense and unexciting, it should be fun, relaxed and a pleasant experience for everyone.  Call me – Lesley Bee today on 01455 233224.

Would you prefer a photo shoot in the comfort of your own home?  I have visited many families at home for a photography session and sometimes this is more suitable for little children who perhaps would not be comfortable in a studio environment.  This is a few images of a recent photo shoot with two beautiful little girls.  Natural window light is perfect for portraits at home.   A home visit is £80 and includes a complimentary 10×8 print from your photo shoot.

Believe me, portrait shoots don’t always go to plan.  In this game you definitely need the following skills:-

– people management

– empathy

– understanding

– a sense of humour

– patience

I will absolutely guarantee that your photo shoot will be stress free and as relaxed as possible.  This little one just wanted to be with mummy.  He arrived for his session with the biggest smile on his face, but when we began to take some photographs and mummy put him down, things went just a little downhill.  This is where my empathy, patience and understanding comes into play.  How do we work around this?    Simple!  Photograph him with his mummy.  Have lots of understanding.  Work around his needs.  Ensure mummy doesn’t get stressed – very important.

We always get there in the end…
