Sam, Lauren and 1 year old Matilda come for a photo shoot

Gift voucher photo shoot

I had a call just before lockdown kicked in from a lovely lady looking to purchase a gift voucher for a location shoot for Sam, Lauren and Matilda.

This week we booked them in for a location shoot at our local beauty spot.

We met at the studio as always and then headed the 3 or 4 minutes to our very private nature reserve and went for our usual relaxed stroll through the woods, well as relaxed as it can be with a 1 year old ūüėā. ¬†We captured some amazing portraits both directed and natural and had the most amazing time ‚̧ԳŹ

We did a few shots of Mum with Matilda and Dad with Matilda and then Matilda on her own.

We do lots of shoots up at the nature reserve and very often we are the only people there so if you want a glorious shoot this summer or Autumn then please give me a call on 02380 767084

What we do here at our family portrait photo shoots

Our studio is a professional studio with air conditioning, private parking and changing and bathroom facilities.  Its not our home but we like to make it yours during your shoot. Free Wifi for our clients whilst you are here.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year. I am very proud to say we always get the results we want. We have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work. Often we sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with our toys. This make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos.

The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work ūüôā

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We still meet here at the studio even when we head off to our location shoots, this makes the shoot much easier because we are together from the start and its only 3 or 4 minutes away too. The location has free parking and facilities too.

What does it cost?

Our family portrait shoots in our studio or on location cost £200 and includes all of the photos that we take supplied electronically which allows you to download as often as you like to print and share. We do not hold back, if we take 100 photos then you get 100 photos all beautifully finished ready to print and share.

You can choose to have your photoshoot indoors in our modern studio or at our location here in Southampton. We can also quote to go to your favourite location if you prefer.
