Newborn Photography in Hampshire

Being parents ourselves we fully understand the importance of getting your baby’s first photographs just right. After all, you are never going to get this opportunity again!

We believe that when it comes to baby photography in Hampshire, or anywhere for that matter, it’s critical to use a professional photographer, in a relaxed and comfortable studio. And that’s exactly what you get at Julian Porter.

We offer professional baby photography for not just Hampshire newborn boys and girls, but also toddlers, twins, and older children should you wish. We will deliver a fun photoshoot using a wide range of props, wraps, clothing, and scenes.

The end result is a set of timeless and stunning baby photography that you can treasure for years to come.

Baby photography: Hampshire babies who recently visited

Here’s just a small selection of our most recent Hampshire baby photoshoots taken at our professional Southampton studio.

Where in Hampshire are we?

All of our newborn photography takes place in Southampton. Our studio is based in Basset, Southampton and is easily accessible from the motorway, and all major transport links.

When you arrive, you will be met by one of our husband and wife team, either Julian or Sue. We will immediately make you feel at home and at ease, but more importantly, will make your baby feel comfortable too due to our experience, set-up, and layout.

As parents ourselves, we pride ourselves on the connection that we make with your newborn baby. We like to say that “we don’t just click, we also connect” and that will come through in the photos that you get after your session with us.

What happens on the day?

Once we have welcomed you in, we can make you feel right at home with some refreshments as you take a look through our props and clothing, if you choose to opt for them. You don’t have to use our gear, it’s entirely up to you!

You and your baby can then get ready in our private changing room and wash area, before we then start taking a few candid shots of your baby.

This gets them used to us and will set the tone for the rest of the baby photoshoot. During this time, we get to know your newborn a little better, figuring out their character before we get into the full photoshoot.

We often involve siblings as we go along and then towards the end a few photos with siblings and parents too either standing or sitting to keep the new mummy comfortable but please remember this is a newborn photoshoot not a full family shoot.

How much does a baby photoshoot cost?

We are the most reasonably priced newborn photographer in Hampshire.

We are first and foremost family photographers. Everything we do involves people so our prices are sensible and very reasonable.

We ask that you pay a studio session fee up front as a deposit which is £50.00, which you will then have taken off your total order value.

And we’re currently offering a full disk of photos are only £275 with free gift.

The session fee includes our time photographing and editing the photographs. A personal viewing in our viewing room with refreshments at your convenience. Of course, a lot of our families choose the disk package to skip the viewing option.

After your session you can choose to buy from our range of beautiful framed or canvas photos starting at £200.00 which can include multiple photographs so can be incredible value.

You could also choose from one of our print only packages which start at £199.00 for 10 printed photographs (6 x 4) in a presentation box which is gift wrapped.

We have many other products available to view in our studio.
