Portrait & Family Photography 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 our comfortable professional studio or at a location of your choice.

Both Sue and I are keen walkers and love the outdoors, so we also 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 and toys 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!

How much does Family Photography in Southampton and Hampshire cost?

We are the most reasonably priced portrait 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 all of the photos for only £200 for a studio or for a Chilworth location shoot or £250 for both and this is for a maximum of 6 people (or people and dogs) although we can photograph more but please see prices below.

You can also bring your family dog or dogs along. Well behaved doggies are very welcome in the studio but please remember they count towards the total number so an family of 4 plus 2 doggies is a family of 6.

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 clients choose this 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 £150.00 which can include multiple photographs so can be incredible value.
