Autumn Family Photo shoots in Southampton & Hampshire

Unlike most other portrait and family photographers our prices are very much upfront and honest. We don’t promise you a “free photo” and then pressure you into spending thousands nor do we charge silly money. But what we are is one of the best Portrait Studios in the south of England with clients that come back again and again.

During the photoshoot we will capture you and your family’s unique personalities in the beautiful autumnal sunshine at a location of your choice or at our local beauty spot.

Both Sue and I are keen walkers and love the outdoors, so we offer location portraits around the Hampshire area. We have several secret and stunning locations that help us to create beautiful family photography each and every time. If your family prefer to climb trees and love the outdoors we can take you to our favourite spots or yours.

Being parents ourselves we also fully understand both the importance of family photographs and also how daunting it might be for some children. For this reason our service is guaranteed to be a fun, relaxed and unhurried one. Sue will happily keep the kids occupied with games until they are ready to go, making the photoshoot a fun experience for all.

And why not bring the family dog along too? They can be included in a few photos should you wish!

After your Autumn photoshoot in our studio or on location, we will work very quickly to review all the photos from the session. During this process we will delete and remove any photos where you might have been turning away from the camera or blinking.

We also include an online gallery and slideshow if required.

Can we have a studio and an autumn location shoot together?

Yes you can. We are based at a comfortable professional studio in the Bassett area of Southampton in Hampshire. It’s a safe and secure environment, with everything needed to produce stunning results.

You will feel right at home, as will your family, we will put you at ease due to our experience, the set-up, and our professionalism.

We are parents too, so completely understand how important it is to connect with the children during the photoshoot. That ethos is explained by our saying “we don’t just click, but we also connect.”

After our studio shoot we will head to our location less than a mile away, This makes for an amazing set of photographs and the best of both worlds.
