Maternity Photography


Pregnancy is a time of big changes and not only in your body! While it goes through a very demanding development process, there can be a lot of pressure on you emotionally. You may not feel too great, battling the sickness, swollen feet and insomnia. Glamour and photoshoots may be a last thing on your mind...


But... It is known, that make over and photoshoot experience can give a person a great boost in confidence. Being pregnant is also a very temporary state. Looking back 10 years on, you will want to have some professional images of you in this un-easy, but beautiful condition. And your child would be amazed to see them too!


At The Old Mill Studios you will look like a queen! Let us give you the feel of awesomeness and beauty!


Maternity photo session can be done in the studio or on location. Cornwall is knows for its amazing scenery, with magnificent sunsets and romantic beaches. However, if you prefer cosier indoors, it is not a problem.

On the date of the session (scheduled at your convenience), you will arrive to the studio (or on location). You are welcome to bring the outfits of your choice for the session. We also offer our beautiful designer gowns to our clients, should they like to have a bit more of make-over experience. Your partner and children are very welcome to join too!

We will take a good variety of images, with various backgrounds, in different settings etc. There is no need to worry, if you are not comfortable in front of the camera – Maryna will do her best to put you at ease. She will direct you how to pose.

After the session we schedule an in-person viewing session, which usually takes place about 1 week later. You will see your best edited images presented in the slide show and choose a photo package suitable for you. We also offer a variety of photo albums and amazing choice of wall art!

Maternity photography session is only £35 at the studio or on location within 7 miles of St Austell. The locations of 7+ miles are charged at £40 extra. You can choose to add this option, when checking out. There is no images included in the session fee.
