Hello! My name is Julie Anne Davis, I was born here in my home city of Southampton, Hampshire, UK where I work from my studio. I am a 1970’s baby.I am happily married, I have one amazing teenage son and one very cute small breed Chihuahua! I have been Hampshire’s premier professional Newborn Baby Photographer for nearly ten years. You may have seen my photographic work on the walls the NHS hospital wards/NICU wards around the Hampshire and Dorset area. I have over 30 years of experience working closely with newborn babies. I just adore photographing twins, triplets and even quadruplets! Your precious babies are very safe in my hands.
A Specialist in Newborns First and Foremost
Mastering the art of Photography can take years but as any mother would know, learning to handle a newborn baby is something no one can teach you but a lot of experience can go a very long way. I am a fully trained newborn baby photographer. The safety and comfort of your baby is paramount in our sessions. My experience of working closely with babies and families has taken me all around the world. Working with some high profile parents too. So you can be assured of total discretion at all times if required.
I am very proud of my early career as a nursery nurse, maternity nurse and newborn feeding and sleeping consultant. I believe it has given me a unique grounding and allows me to offer a specialist newborn baby photography experience that is second to none. Clients return time and time again to capture their growing family.
My skills have taken me worldwide enabling me to work and live in London, Hong Kong, Beijing, Italy, Spain,France and all across the USA.
I’ve gained a great sense of perception regarding the needs of newborns, all of which plays a very important part in what I do today.
I hold a full Paediatric First Aid certificate, a fully enhanced DBS check and have full Liability Insurance.
I also volunteer for RMB Remember My Baby – Remembrance Photography for Hampshire. More information on this charity can be found here www.remembermybaby.org.uk
In my spare time I can be found escaping to the coast in my VWT5 camper van. I love to travel at any given opportunity. I often drive to France and Italy to explore. As I have lived in Italy in the past for several years I adore anything Italian especially the food, wine and language! I am very adventurous and I encourage my son to be too.I also adore horses and horse riding, swimming and generally keeping fit. I have run several races to help raise funds for PICU – Paediatric Intensive Care Unit Southampton in which my son spent some time recovering from open heart surgery some years ago. We will always be extremely grateful for their care and support during the toughest time in our lives. I feel honoured to be able to donate my Newborn Baby Photographic Artwork to several hospitals and birthing units throughout the South of England and London – as a thank you and to celebrate new life …
