Once again this year we are running a very special Christmas portrait photography promotion in Southampton. But there are a few changes this year to help us work safely after the pandemic. Each session will be a half hour studio slot which will allow us time to then clean up before the next client. We have an extra supply of hats to allow us to keep clean and safe too. 

If you are looking for some lovely photos of you or your children or perhaps having your family or pets dressed up like Santa or in their favourite Christmas jumper, then take a look below.

Once again this year we have a very Christmassy theme and lots of props and Santa hats for the children to wear. Mummy and Daddy can of course join if for a few photos too.

Our offer is for one family (1 family is 2 adults and up to 3 siblings) so bring along your children and join them if you wish. If you would like your children photographed with extended or larger family like cousins please contact us for details and pricing.


Christmas shoot including digital photos £99

The Christmas shoot is per family so 2 parents and up-to 3 children. Any more children or grandparents than that then its an extended shoot which is £50 extra

This is a festive shoot on a festive backdrop only. this is not a change off backdrop type shoot. We do of course offer these but not for £99.

Each of our Christmas shoot comes with ALL THE  digital files ready for printing and sharing as gifts which is normally between 40 and 70 beautiful photos. Our Christmas shoots are a 30 minute session so sometimes you can change outfits too if just a jumper although not a full change because the shoot is so short. Although we offer a full editing service with our normal photo shoots, Our festive shoots are a little different. We still crop and sort the photos too but only minimal editing so please make sure you have the look you are after. We do of course sort things like baby dribbles etc.

SHOOT LIMITATIONS and DOGS : Almost anybody can join these shoots but babies that cannot sit unaided need to be in parents or siblings arms. But If you have a newborn baby we can do a Christmas photo setup along with your newborn shoot.  We can allows dogs to join us but you have to book an extended shoot £50 extra so that we give the dog or dogs time to settle and us time to change floor coverings etc. The extended shoot means we can do the children first on the children setup then change to the dog friendly setup and do both.

Equally the same if you think your child or children need longer to settle in just like we do with our usual portrait shoots then please let us know and we will book you an extended shoot which is £50 extra but importantly this will give us 20 minutes or so to play with your child or children to settle them in before shooting plus a longer shoot time.
