The Perfect Baby Shower Gift Idea for Southampton Expectant Mums

Has your friend, sister, daughter or co-worker just announced their pregnancy news? If so, you might have been tasked with arranging or attending a baby shower. On the day and night, no doubt there will be fun and frivolity, hugs, a few tears, and a big celebration of the good news.

But what about a gift idea?

As you will know, it’s traditional for friends and relations going to a baby shower to bring a gift for the expectant mother. Many of these gift ideas can be quite boring and practical and aren’t really going to provide a lifetime’s worth of memories to the mum.

This is where a photoshoot can differ.

Maternity and baby bump photoshoots

One of our more popular photoshoot ideas at the moment is a maternity one. The expectant mum will be pampered for the day at our Southampton studio, with the result being a set of stunning photos of her and her bump (see examples).

It’s so much better than the classic baby shower gift ideas such as baby toys, gadgets, and clothing which will soon be discarded and forgotten about in the future as the child grows older.

Instead, our maternity photoshoot will capture the mum in her full glory of pregnancy, offering a timeless collection of photographs that she can treasure for ever.

The photoshoot can occur at any point during pregnancy, but we do suggest doing so when the baby bump is showing as this will make the memories even more special.

A baby shower photoshoot gift can be purchased as voucher which the mum can redeem with us, or you could even book her in as a surprise on any chosen day.

Newborn baby photography

This is our most popular baby shower gift idea so how about gifting her a newborn baby photoshoot, these are ideal within the first couple of weeks of the baby’s birth. Or if she would prefer maybe a first birthday cake smash shoot and you can see some examples in our stunning portfolio.

But perhaps it’s not your friend’s first baby?

In situations like this we find that some mums love to wait until the new baby is born, and then have a photoshoot with all the kids and the new arrival. Or it could be that the older child comes to a photoshoot with us during pregnancy, touching the bump for another memorable and adorable moment we are very flexible withy ideas.

The choices and options are endless really.

It’s guaranteed to be one of the most special baby shower gifts you could buy, and with Julian Porter Photography you know that mum will be in safe hands with one of the south coast’s most well-regarded family photographers.

We find that many friends of the mum will chip in to the voucher cost, letting you all contribute to what promises to be a really unique and memorable baby shower gift idea.
