hi, welcome to my website Susanna Stables Photography, i’m Susanna, i live in Cornwall & i specialise in Newborn baby photography, Pregnancy photography & Wedding photography.
i shot my first wedding in Cornwall in 2009 after being approached by the mother of the Bride, she’d seen some of my photography and knew her daughter would love my style & relaxed, informal approach. We met, i showed the Bride & Groom samples of my work, they said ‘yes!’ & i haven’t looked back! i have also photographed weddings in Devon, Bristol and later this year, Worcestershire.
i‘m a romantic & genuinely adore the unfolding love story of a couples wedding, capturing those images of a girl becoming a princess for the day, the look on the Grooms face when he turns to see his Bride walking towards him for the first time and charting that story with my photographs is utterly wonderful.
My style is un-obtrusive, relaxed, natural, creative & fitting in with your guests helps you all feel relaxed around me & that’s when i capture the un-posed, real-life moments of your day, the ones that you might not even see happening.
My great passion is photographing newborn babies.
i am an NNEB Nursery Nurse with over 30 years experience with newborn babies & toddlers and a mother of three, so your precious newborn couldn’t be in safer hands.
i can loose more hours chatting with a newborn baby than anyone i know!
Newborns only have that special 'tiny baby' look for a short number of weeks so ideally your newborn photography session needs to be done before baby is 2 weeks old (I have done successful shoots with babies up to 5 weeks) this is when they sleep deeply, even if you undress and move them into different poses. I use some props during the session but mainly my images are simple which makes them timeless. I have my studio at home here in Cornwall & my newborn baby shoots are relaxed, warm and baby led because babies can't be rushed , a session can take 2-5 hours, they need to be fed and given time to settle into that deep sleep needed to gently pose them.
Most mum’s book their newborn baby photography shoot just after their 20 week scan.
i also offer1yr birthday cake smashes, family portraits and a FREE pre-wedding shoot when you book one of my wedding packages.
