Did you know that the majority of my clients are not local ladies? In fact, they travel some distance for their beauty or boudoir portrait session?
Yep! My all-female team here serve ladies from all over the south coast and beyond. So, if you’re thinking of booking with me but are not based in Hampshire, realise that you are not alone.
Many women travel to benefit from the Johanna Elizabeth experience, and tell us that it’s been well worth the journey!
The UK’s premier boudoir photographer
Travelling to my photography studio is a piece of cake! We’re in a convenient location, in Havant, Hampshire, with easy access to motorways and a five min walk from the train station!
Ladies, if you’re based in Bournemouth, Southampton or Winchester, or Basingstoke, Guildford or Worthing, you can be with us within approximately one hour by car.
My clients also regularly travel from Bristol, Brighton and London, as well as from the Midlands and further afield.
Your professional photoshoot: The perfect excuse for a mini-break in Hampshire!
Here’s an idea for you…
If you are going to be travelling to me, then why not also stay for a day or two?
You will need to visit us twice; for the portrait session itself and then again for your post-photoshoot ‘Reveal Session’ at a later date. So, you could choose either occasion for your mini-break or treat yourself to an extended stay on both visits!
(The reveal session can be anything from a week after your photoshoot day, it’s totally up to you.)
A mini-break in Hampshire could be just what the doctor ordered after these months of lockdown!

Explore Hampshire during your visit to us!
There are so many beautiful places to visit around here, and plenty to see and do.
Whether you know the area well, or have never been before, there are all sorts of things for you to enjoy in and around Havant, as well as neighbouring Southsea, Portsmouth and Chichester.
Making the journey to us, here in Hampshire, part of a staycation gives you the opportunity to savour your time here and have fun.

Places of interest near our photography studio in Havant
If you like this idea, then keep reading. Here are some of our favourite places, eateries and things to do in and around Havant to get your mini-break planning started!
Somewhere to eat and drink…
The Old House at Home pub on South Street in Havant, opposite the studio is well worth a stop for lunch or dinner.
In fact, many of our clients have a drink there before or after their photo shoot, whether it’s to settle their nerves in advance or celebrate themselves once it’s over!
Somewhere to visit…
Havant: The town of Havant is located in the southeast of Hampshire, between Portsmouth and Chichester. It’s a historic market town with beautiful walks and countryside nearby. Don’t miss Staunton Country Park or the three miles of beaches at nearby Hayling Island.
Chichester: Just a ten-minute car journey to the east is the city of Chichester, where you can enjoy many cultural sights such as the Cathedral and the Roman Palace in Fishbourne.
Somewhere to shop…
Portsmouth: If shopping is high on your priority list while you’re in Hampshire, then do stop at Portsmouth. You’ll be sure to find what you need at Gunwharf Quays and because it’s a designer shopping outlet, with more than 90 retailers, you can shop ‘til you drop and you might bag a bargain too!
The famous Spinnaker Tower is also a must-see. Located on the edge of the harbour, you can either enjoy it from the ground – there are various places you can eat and drink within close distance – or, you can go into the tower. If you aren’t afraid of heights, why not enjoy the views and have High Tea 105 metres above the ground?
Somewhere to stay…
Langstone Quays Hotel
If you’re planning to stay overnight in the area, we recommend Langstone Quays Hotel based in Hayling Island. This beautiful hotel has an enviable seaside location and is nestled in the harbour – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
