Voucher shoot and family fun

Back in 2013 we met Dan and his partner Rick for a location shoot down at Ocean Village and since then we have worked for Dan a couple of times, or rather worked with Dan’s friends after he gifted them vouchers.

This week we met Victoria and her lovely family for a fun shoot. The brief was mainly to get photos of her gorgeous little boy but also a few of the family too.

We had a lovely hour and lots of different photo combination too which made for a great shoot and I am sure both Victoria and her family will be super chuffed with. I know Dan will be happy too 🙂

We offer all sorts of voucher packages so please contact me for details or see the link below.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grandchildren and family and look back through the years.  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.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play in 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 it’s proved to work 🙂

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

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if you’re looking for photos of yourself or you’re  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

8 day old Eleanor comes to baby jp

Earlier this week we had a lovely return visit from Helen and Mark who we met about 11 months ago when we photographed the adorable Jack.  I loved Jack’s shoot and still remember it well.  Last week Jack had a new little sister Eleanor so it was her turn for the spotlight and for a babyjp newborn photography shoot.

We started our shoot with Eleanor and a few props to match Jack’s and then brought Jack into the photos as well as bigger brother William again. We had so much fun it was awesome.

I managed to grab some time playing with Jack and really enjoyed it, such an amazing little boy, in fact, an all around amazing family and it was fab to see them all again.

We have been photographing newborns for years, but babyjp newborn photography by Julian Porter has been running for about 4 years and in that time we have photographed some amazing babies and one of the greatest parts is seeing them come back as toddlers 🙂

Our newborn prices are still on offer at £275 and that includes a full disk of photos so contact us now to pre-book your shoot.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful Newborn-shoot I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments,

Mark and Bryannie get married :-)

On Saturday we joined Mark and Bryannie for their wedding in Ringwood and who would have thought the day would turn out as it did after the past couple of weeks of our summer heatwave. We woke Friday to miserable rain and again Saturday but with 40-50mph winds thrown into the mix. Ouch, this was going to be tough but thankfully I knew even before I left home that Mark and Bryannie would be smiling no matter what.

Well sure enough we arrived in the morning to meet Bry after the hairdressers for some lovely preparation shots and were greeted with the most amazing smile,  We knew Bryannie because we photographed her lovely sister Erica’s wedding 3 years ago 🙂 after an hour or so preps we headed off to the Ringwood Parish church to meet with Mark and although it was incredibly windy, I am pleased to say the rain had gone 🙂 We spent the next half an hour or so shooting the boys and arriving guests.

I know I occasionally have a rant about vicars and quite deservedly so, But today we were greeted by the vicar who was without a doubt a Christian and if I were to ever recommend a church and vicar it would be this one. Genuinely lovely fella and his only interest was Mark and Bryannie and what was best for them. Awesome the church needs more people like this and I told him so. The ceremony was enjoyable for those that are church goers and those that choose not to. Everyone was welcome in this man’s church.

Bryannie arrived in an absolutely gorgeous Jag which was kindly supplied and driven by a family friend, and hurriedly walked into church alongside an equally excited Dad,  The room was genuinely silenced by just how beautiful she looked as was Mark. The following 45 minutes were absolutely a joy to witness  and the photos are amazing. I love it when we are not only allowed to do our job but actively encouraged too.  Outside to a make shift receiving line, well departure line really and then a confetti line up before we headed to our venue for the day Gaddens in Ringwood.  We stopped as planned on the way for some shots of Mark and Bryannie and then afterwards made our way to the venue to meet the guests. We always do a run through with our couples and often choose places to stop should time allow.

Once at Gaddens, we did a few family groups and then some relaxed photos and lots of fun with “Blue Lightning and the Boys” before everyone was called into dinner. After the mains, we had 2 speeches and then a break for desert, after which we had another awesome speech from Josh the BM and then coffee and afterwards we set up our Funtime foto booth for an hour which as always was a massive hit and a whole lot of fun.

The venue was decorated beautifully. This was a family wedding with lots of very special details, Dad made the table centres, Mom sorted the flowers, the candles were in little glass desert jars, Brianne ate all the deserts 🙂 all in all it made for a beautiful wedding.

We then had yet another speech from our groom Mark which made everyone cry 🙂 and then cake cutting with a lovely sword and into first dance. The dance was great, a few moments later everyone else was invited up and I have honestly never seen so many people dance so quickly. Great day, great people 🙂 A long but very rewarding day and I am pleased to say the weather was super kind to us too. Not only did we avoid the rain that most of Hampshire got, we also were very sheltered from the wind so a very positive win-win today.

Rob and Lizzie 10 years on….

Another of our wonderful couples celebrated their 10 year anniversary this year and chose to do so with a photoshoot with us which is just fantastic 🙂

Rob and Lizzie got married back in 2006 and you can see the blog post here

Our location portrait shoot was at Old Sarum Castle at North Salisbury right by the lovely airfield so lots of light aircraft buzzing by and the space is just amazing. The views over Salisbury and the cathedral were sadly lost due to the misty day but no complaints because it was absolutely gorgeous.

We had so much fun on this shoot and the photos are gorgeous and a perfect celebration of all the wonderful things Rob and Lizzie have achieved.

We are offering some amazing packages for both location and studio portraits so please get in touch.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grand children and family and look back through the years.  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.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often 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 it’s proved to work 🙂

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

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you
