What we do

Whilst we offer a range of photography services, we specialise in newborn, baby and toddler photography. 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….


Capturing the first few days of your newborn baby’s life is so special and precious. We only 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 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! Most babies do not arrive on time but we always work around this, so get in touch if you’re expecting and we’ll explain everything in more detail! You can also text “NEWBORN” to 07772474971 and we’ll get back to you. All of our latest newborn work can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/AdamHironsTheStephenCharlesStudio/

Cherubs Club/Baby Photography

As Newborn/Baby specialists we understand the importance of capturing your brand new bundle of joy! You may want to bring your baby in for a one-off session whilst many of our customers opt for our “Cherubs Club” which is a perfect way to capture your baby’s first year.

Cherubs is the UK’s longest running baby photography promotion – established by the Master Photographers Association in 1993. Your baby is photographed on 3 separate occasions during his/her first 12 months . After the final photo session you will receive a beautiful leather triple folio containing three images capturing the development of your child. A wonderful keepsake- all for £19! The Stephen Charles Studio is the official Cherubs photographer for Plymouth and the surrounding area. Get in touch for more information or text “CHERUBS” to 0777 247 4971 and we’ll call you right back.

Bump to Baby

Our “Bump to Baby” package is the perfect way to capture the excitement of pregnancy along with the arrival of your brand new bundle of joy. This package is just £39.00 and includes a maternity shoot and then a newborn shoot (up to 10 days) along with a triple frame that you’ll receive at the end with an image from each session plus the baby’s name and date of birth (in the middle of the frame).


At The Stephen Charles Studio we specialise in fun and contemporary portraiture that reflects your personality. Our studio can cater for all types of portraiture including couple portraits, family portraits, model portfolios, pet portraits, babies, boudoir style, maternity shoots – the list goes on…….!. Alternatively if you’d rather have a portrait session on location – then just let us know!


We can provide instant passport/ visa photographs for all ages (including babies/children) while you wait. We can also provide photographs for bus passes, driving licences and work permits.


We run regular one-to-one photography training workshops for anyone wanting to develop their interest in photography. These are aimed at all levels so whether you are just starting out and want to get the camera out of “automatic” mode and into “manual” mode or a budding amateur wanting to learn some new lighting techniques – get in contact and we can help you out!
