Our new studio is currently undergoing renovations. It is located in a magnificent 19th century Mill in St Austell town centre, Cornwall. There will be two studio rooms, and a spacious reception, featuring epic wall-art. All the rooms have beautiful feature windows, rustic walls and lots of character, to give the most of the variety to your photos.


While the refurbishment is taking its place (and time), we are happy to greet out clients at the temporary photo studio only a few doors down the street.


You can also arrange photo sessions on location in St Austell and surrounding areas.

Please choose the genre of the session you are after to find out more...


Portrait Photography

The Old Mill Studios is situated in St Austell, Cornwall. It specialises in the following genres of portrait photography:

  • Newborn Photography
  • Baby and Child Photography
  • Family Photography
  • Cake Smash and Baby’s 1st Birthdays
  • Themed, Fairytale and Fine Art photography

How does it work?

Upon initial enquiry, we answer all the questions you may have about the photo session experience with us. Then we schedule the date and time for your session at your convenience.

On the day you are welcome to bring up to 3 outfits of your choice for yourself and children. We always recommend to go for the neutral colours without distracting patterns and logos, for the whole family. Neutral colours are the best for portrait photography.

You can use some of the children outfits from our closet too. Our dressing up wardrobe also includes some stunning maternity dresses which will give extra twist to your photo shoot, resulting in amazing images. If you’d like to go a step further and have a professional make up and hair done, our qualified maker up artist/hair stylist will be more than happy to help.

There is an option to add this service to your booking, when checking out.

During the portrait photography session, we take and a variety of photos. Usually a session lasts about an hour or so. However the average time for a newborn session is 3 hours. Sessions on location can take longer too, because there is usually a bit of walking involved.

After the session we schedule the in-person viewing, which usually takes place 1 week later. You see your best edited images presented in the slide show and choose a photo package suitable for you. We also offer a great range of amazing wall-art, to suit any type of home.

Our photo packages come as high resolution digital files on the USB, some with complimentary 5×7″ prints.

Wall Art and Photo Products

We are not “shoot and burn” type of studio where you can only have your images on USB. We believe that wall art truly makes photo memories special. You have a wide selection of professional products available for your choice, which you can view here.

"Amazing photographer who photographed our family for many years, producing stunning pictures, would definitely recommend!"
