Christmas Mini Sessions 2015 | Cornwall and Devon

Friday, 13 November 2015
This year's Christmas Minis are being held only on November weekends due to a very tight schedule. I'd recommend booking your spot as soon as possible. You can do it by filling in the booking form on my website:

"Why are digital files so expensive?" - you think | The truth about their value.

Friday, 6 November 2015
Nowadays, with the advanced technology, cameras built in our phones and tablets are of such quality, many people no longer feel the need to own a compact digital camera. We can store our photos in albums on our devices as well as back them up into a cloud. No wonder why my most requested products are in fact digital files. Before booking, most of my clients are making sure I do provide those. Many don't even question the price as they are aware of the value of a digital file. It can be added to your albums, cloud and of course printed as many times as you want in any formats as the resolution is around 5000x3000 pixels.
The other reason why digital images are priced so high is the time, dedication and skills of the photographer during post production. Time includes downloading, sorting, cropping, editing the files and then uploading them to the gallery. It can take anything between a few hours to even a few days to complete a gallery depending an the nature of the photo session/assignment.
It's not that one press of the shutter what makes the images look the way they do when you see them, it takes time and certain skill to bring them from the raw digital negative to that high quality, enhanced image which reflects photographer's style.
If, when booking your session, you choose the option including digital files uploaded to a fancy USB or a printed CD in a pretty cover, you'd realize it is significantly more expensive then the other options offered. You can be sure it is not the fancy USB or CD you're paying for (those are thrown in free of charge), it's the time, effort and skills of the photographer and the ability to print them as many times as you wish to the rest of your life.
Having said that, no matter what kind of shoot you're booking with me, you don't have to go for the digital option. You can pay just the session fee and order prints, frames and many other products from your gallery afterwards.
Also, in case you do want to purchase the whole digital option, but can't afford to pay at once, there can be a payment plan set up for you.

Cute little baby boy | Baby Photography Cornwall, Devon

Everyone, meet Jacob. He was 1 month old when he came to my studio. Babies at this age are usually too old for newborn session as they don't sleep as much and as well as a 10 day old does and they don't curl up naturally any more. Still, we managed to get him to sleep and got some stunning images. Such a charming little man :)

Christmas Baby / Children Photography Cornwall, Devon | UK Christmas props

Monday, 21 September 2015
Is it this time of the year again? I know we barely started school, but it is time to start thinking about Christmas mini sessions. Last year they became so popular, I was booked up within the first few days after announcing them. This year I am going to start the whole process much earlier to give more people a chance to book their spot.
This year I have got new exciting props your kids will love!
Get ready and keep an eye out for the session add on my Facebook page and here on my blog to make sure you don't miss it this time :)
There's nothing better to send to your family and friends on Christmas than personalized cards with your cute child on it. It is not only a lovely gift, but also a great memory. Why not getting it printed and display on your wall every year as a part of your Christmas decor?
It's just something to think about ;)

I have to admit, there is nothing better than being a part in creation of a family legacy. The fact that my images will be hang on walls and will survive generations gives me goose bumps. This is one of the parts of my job I enjoy the most. Seeing the connection between family members is the most wonderful thing about photography.

Cute Baby Boy Photo | Award Winning Baby Photographer Cornwall and Devon

Recently I had a pleasure to photograph this charming little guy. Isn't he adorable? Don't you just love his pouty lips and cute rolls on his back? It is amazing how fast these little cuties grow. They change with every blink, so don't hesitate any longer and bring them to my studio within the first 2 weeks after birth and I will capture these precious details and create lifetime memories.

Birthday Cake Smash Session | Photographer Cornwall | Photographer Plymouth

So many birthday sessions and enquiries lately! Mostly for one-year-olds, but if your child is older, do not worry, it is still fun! ;)
Let me introduce you little Adam, who turns two. He was a bit shy at the beginning, but he couldn't help his curiosity when he spotted his football cake.

Encouraged by his big brother began the demolition :)

Cornwall Beach Photography | Photographer Cornwall | Photographer Plymouth

Monday, 16 March 2015
One of the things I love most in my husband, is his spontaneity. We used to be really good together, very unpredictable. But now, when we have children, it doesn't happen that often any more... Last weekend was nothing special, it was cold and not very pleasant outside, but on Saturday after lunch, he just got up from the table and said "now everyone puts some warm clothes one, and lets go out". The kids got so excited as they had no idea where we were going, neither did I. After a little drive, we arrive at our favorite Fistral Beach in Newquay :) I totally love that spot. There are so many memories in there. This is our getaway. We get out from the car and just keep walking towards the waves, feeling the cool and fresh, salty breeze on our faces and in our hair. Looking at the horizon, and the huge ocean, I realize how little my everyday problems are. Suddenly they don't matter any more. I feel free and happy and I see my kids feeling exactly the same.
I only wish I was living closer, so we could go there more often, but maybe this way it seams more special...
Everyone should have their getaway spot, one that makes you realize or reminds you how much you love your life, no matter how hard could your life be at the particular moment.

Spring is just around the corner!

Wednesday, 11 March 2015
I haven't done a fairy one in a long time! Here it is with a little spring touch :) Not long till spring now. Yay!

What do you think about this handsome man? Would you believe he is 21 months old? He was so good, and slept throughout the session like a bear :)
I have no problems with posing older babies, so if you missed the window between 6-14 days after birth of your child, there is still a chance we can get them to sleep and take timeless images of their natural beauty, cute baby curves, squishy chicks and the little details like toes and tiny fingers. They are still babies after all.

The Magic of Early Motherhood | Baby Photographer Cornwall

Sunday, 22 February 2015
Becoming a parent is a beginning of the whole new chapter in your life. You probably don't realize yet how much your lifestyle will change during the next few years. Soon you'll ask yourself "how could I live without him/her before" and your world will be turning pretty much around your new growing baby, and for him/her you'll be the most important person in the whole world. If you are lucky to be a full time mommy, you will be the one who gets to see their "firsts" :) It is so exciting when your baby smiles for the first time, or starts sitting unattended, or when he/she gives the first step and I'm sure you will want to capture that moment to show to the rest of your family and to keep for yourself and come back to it anytime you want. It is worth making the effort to capture that and create memories that will last for generations. Why not book a professional photographer to do that for you? You can get very good deals when booking a set of sessions at once. It's best to think about it when still pregnant. You could have a pregnancy session, followed by a newborn shoot, then 6 month shoot and you baby's first birthday session, and put all those beautiful images in a beautiful photobook :) Your baby's story from the very beginning. Which mum wouldn't want to have it all in one book? You could see how she/he changed over those first months of their life.
Do not hesitate and make the decision today! If your are looking for the best bump and baby photographer in Cornwall, you are in the right place. Book today:

Capturing your pregnancy glow.

As a mother of four, I know how heavy and uncomfortable being pregnant feels. The last thing I had in mind was to be on any photos. I didn't want to remember how big, and swollen I was or how tired I looked. But now, after all these years, I wish I could show to my daughter how we looked together when I was carrying her under my heart. This is why I can't stress enough how important it is to capture this moment. Even though it feels like it lasts forever and at the end we only wish it was over soon. We can't wait to start loosing those extra pounds and to be able to pull on that skinny jeans again. It soon becomes a memory and we soon forget how we looked and how we felt. Why not capture that important stage when we give life to a next generation? Why not capture the moment when our life is about to change and when we are about to become parents. This nine months is just a blink of an eye comparing to the whole lifetime. Let me capture this for you and make it a lifetime memory to keep and leave for generations to come :)

My Mini Sessions and THE BEST Newborn Photography Props of all :)

Friday, 23 January 2015
I've been very busy lately with many family sessions. Apart from the classic high key ones I also do lifestyle shoots. I have to admit, these are my favorites, as you never get the same image twice, every family is different and lifestyle shots express the true nature and personality of each member of your family.
My second most popular type are mini sessions. I own a huge collections of all sorts of photography props. They are all from  or I am sure you've seen my latest post with Tiny Dreams Props' Original Easter Egg
