Baby photography in Hampshire


It was a train journey down to Hampshire for today’s baby and family photo shoot, to the town of Havant on the south coast. I’ve visited Havant a few times before – once for a family photo shoot and twice when I ran the Portsmouth half marathon – so I was really pleased to be visiting again, it’s a lovely part of the world.

It was wonderful to meet Vicky, her husband Andrew and their beautiful daughter Lillie-Mae for their baby and family photo shoot. When I arrived at the house, slightly befuddled after a snooze on the train from London and looking forward to a cup of coffee, I was greeted by the most incredible smile from Lillie-Mae, a real show shopper of a grin that really lit up the room from her position sitting on the floor of her playroom. I knew immediately that I was in for a treat and I was not disappointed.

We had such a great time. Vicky and Andrew’s Hampshire home was absolutely stunning and the wonderful interior decoration made for such a great location for our photo shoot. We moved between rooms to keep things interesting for Lillie-Mae and also to utilise as many of the lovely interiors as possible, from the delicate wallpaper in the playroom to the wonderful chairs in the drawing room and the great light in the parents’ bedroom.

We had a wonderful morning together and I am absolutely thrilled with the images. Vicky had some beautiful outfits for Lillie-Mae and I’m sure she will enjoy playing in her tutu for a long time to come – it’s such a pretty skirt.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our baby and family photo shoot in Hampshire, I do hope you enjoy them.
