Welcome to Imagine Contemporary Portraits, the place to gather the family together for a photoshoot and get some great images of you all! We’re an independent photography studio on the borders of Wiltshire, West Berkshire and Hampshire, specialising in family portraiture and creating exceptional photography you’ll treasure forever.
We’ve been here since 2004 and strive to be the best studio in the area, so you can be sure when your family visits, you’ll be in safe hands. Our clients think so too, take a moment to look through our Google and Facebook reviews to see our recent client’s feedback. We’re really proud of our reputation as the best reviewed family portrait studio in the South West.
What makes our photoshoots special is our setting. Imagine occupies a converted brick barn on a working Wiltshire farm and is setup with a large indoor studio, featuring all the state-of-the art equipment. The studio has a real wow factor, allowing plenty of room for large groups, pets and also has disabled access.
We’ve plenty of space for outdoor portraits in our garden studio area. There’s seasonal flowers, straw bales, handmade benches and rustic barn walls covered in creeping ivy that help the Imagine garden bring natural textures and colours to the composition. Using natural daylight offers a different experience to your usual high street studio and every season brings something different to see on the farm, with special trips to the nearby Savernake Forest available in Spring for the carpet of bluebells and in Autumn for the palette of golden colours.
Here’s a word from our Head Photographer, Neil.
‘Imagine was established in 2004 and since then we’ve met so many wonderful characters along the way and we’re privileged to share their family stories through our art of photography. Creating portraits that take pride of place in people’s homes, and that will be treasured in the decades that follow, this is what really inspires our team.’
Our photography style is relaxed, natural and contemporary, with an emphasis on trying to capture genuine expressions. We believe expression makes a good image a great image and make our photoshoots a fun, creative experience. You’ll be encouraged to move around, interact and just be yourselves as your photographer captures those naturally beautiful moments of family interaction.
Once the photo session has been completed, our dedicated team will work on compiling and editing your images ready for a preview presentation. Usually around a week later, you’ll be invited to the private cinema viewing room to watch your very own family photo showreel. Then it’s your turn to get creative! Choose from our quality bespoke product range how to finish your portraits and design your home display.
We offer only the very best products for family pictures, with everything being put together by hand in the UK to the highest standards, by skilled craftsmen. There’s a variety of classic & contemporary framing options, floating photo blocs, mosaic compositions and high definition astral aluminium wall hangings, along with digital and print options. Each item has been carefully chosen for the range and is full of impact, so once they’re up on the walls, you’ll be really proud of the results.
If you’re looking for the best place in Wiltshire, West Berkshire or Hampshire to capture your clan on camera, make sure to come and meet our friendly team and get the full experience at Imagine, where we create contemporary portraits, for everyone.

«We had such a fun day with Mollie for the photoshoot, she is wonderful in her profession - especially with children! We fell in love with all of the photographs. The viewing felt very VIP, the lady who sat us through our viewing was extremely patient and helpful, and we didn't feel rushed at all! Would definitely use the service to mark our next family milestone.»
«We came with our week old baby who was very well behaved! The photographer was lovely and suggested great pictures. The pictures were amazing and made me cry! We’re so happy we have this early part of our son’s life in pictures and have ordered photos for the walls in our new house. Thank you imagine.»
«What a fantastic experience. Our amazing photographer Mollie made this the most relaxing, fun and enjoyable afternoon. The best family photo shoot we have had and highly recommend this company. The after sales was just as excellent nothing was forced and the advice given in making decisions was exceptional. So looking forward to collecting our photos.»
«Imagine portraits were friendly and approachable and Neil took the time to get the best photos of our family, including our hyperactive puppy and our autistic son who hates having his photo taken. The photos, shown to us by Claire, looked amazing and we cannot wait to share them with our friends and family!»
«I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Imagine Studio, where I had pet portraits taken of my cocker spaniel, Jack. Jack hardly ever sits still so I was somewhat apprehensive about the shoot, but Mollie was great with him. The result was a selection of really lovely pics. I am delighted and really looking forward to the arrival of my prints.»
