What we do

Whilst we offer a range of photography services, we specialise in newborn, baby and toddler photography here in Plymouth, Devon. As parents ourselves we understand how important it is to capture images of your baby at a time you can never get back. You can find below the type of photography we offer….

Newborns

Capturing the first few days of your newborn baby’s life is so special and precious. We photograph newborns up to 10 days old and we take bookings as soon as you know your due date. Due to the length of newborn sessions, we only photograph one newborn session a day, and therefore we recommend that you book well in advance (we take newborn bookings 5-6 months in advance; if you’re expecting in the next couple of months or sooner please feel free to get in touch. We also have a cancellation list for more immediate bookings). We turn away an average of 5 customers a week as they either contact us after the baby is here or too late into their pregnancy, so please get in touch asap! The majority of our clients come from Plymouth and the surrounding areas but we also have new mum’s and dad’s travelling from all over Devon and Cornwall. So please don’t miss out!!! For more information contact us at stephencharlesstudio@googlemail.com or call us at the studio on 01752 481184. You can also text “Newborn” to 0777 247 4971 and we’ll get back to you.

Most babies do not arrive on time hence the reason we only take on a limited number of sessions per week to allow us flexibility in providing all of our prebookings an appointment – so get in touch if you’re expecting and we’ll explain everything in more detail! Newborn photography is a specialist type of photography and whilst many mums think that newborns simply sleep throughout sessions this is (most of the time) not the case! Newborn sessions are very difficult and we’ve spent years working to create sessions that work and enable you as parents to leave with images you can cherish. If you’d like more information drop us a message! For more information contact us at stephencharlesstudio@googlemail.com or call us at the studio on 01752 481184. You can also text “Newborn” to 0777 247 4971 and we’ll get back to you.

Facebook Review (taken from our page):

A must for anyone with a newborn. Adam & Stephen made this one of our most favourite experiences so far in parenthood. They clearly know what they are doing when it comes to newborn photography so my tip would be to stand back, let them do what they do best and enjoy the experience. During the shoot Adam made us feel very comfortable, engaged and took his time. He created a great environment to get some great shots, which we have now seen and are overwhelmed with. A very big thank you to Adam, Stephen and the team. We will be back for the cherub shoot and in the meantime we have booked in several more shoots for family and friends as presents as they were that good! – Ryan May

Adam was amazing with Archie on our photo shoot. He figured out very quickly how to make him smile and took lots of amazing photos. We picked up the ones we ordered today and are over the moon with them. He really captured Archies personality. We can’t wait for our next shoot! – Jacqui Cotton
