Goodness, I haven’t posted here in a while!

It’s all change at DSP Towers… sadly Creftow, the home of my studio, will be closing in a couple of months, which leaves me without a shooting space.

However, for the time being at least, I won’t be looking for alternative premises as this development has led me to take a little hiatus from professional photography.

As you may or may not know, I also have a Cornwall and Devon wedding inspiration website and blog, (Pasties & Petticoats – Cornwall & Devon Wedding Blog). This has been growing at quite a rate as a source of inspiration and planning resource for couples getting married in Cornwall and Devon, so I’m taking some time to concentrate on this.

I will of course honour outstanding bookings.

Thank you SO much to all of my clients over the 6 years of Donna Sharpe Photography – I won’t be putting my camera down, my love for photography remains as strong as ever, and this is a break rather than an ending. To that end, my website and facebook pages will stay live, and I might even still post a little personal photography from time to time.

I can’t believe my last blog post was in January – sorry about me! As I mentioned back then, I left my ‘day job’ (in March) and am now photographing so much more, which I am just loving! I seem to be blessed with such lovely clients, shoots always feel like hanging out with friends rather than work, and many come back time after time, so I get to capture their families as they grow which is such a huge privilege.

The past few months have passed in the blink of an eye. I’ve opened the new studio in Helston, shot snuggly new babies, families on beaches, sunny weddings, cute dogs and cats, professional head shots and even had a work experience student for a week. This has meant I’ve abandoned my website a little, so once the summer holidays are over I will try to get better at posting here more regularly, and to update my portfolio galleries!

Exciting things seem to always be in the pipeline, and I hope to get some time for personal projects over the coming months. I also still continue to work on my other love – a Cornish wedding blog (Pasties and Petticoats if you’d like to take a look). I feel very lucky to be in the position I’m in – thank you to everyone who has helped me get to this point.

I hope you’re all having a lovely summer. And if you’re in need of a photographer, drop me a line!

Cor, what a busy year 2014 was. Aside from the usual weddings, on location family portrait sessions and business courses, I also introduced newborn photography to my studio offering.  I’ve had SO many gorgeous babies through the door and it’s been such an honour to capture those precious early days.

In 2015 I’ll be giving up my ‘day job’ and taking Donna Sharpe Photography full time, which I am so excited about. I’m busily working on a few things, and over the next few weeks will be looking for people to take part in portfolio shoots – if you’re interested, please pop over and like my facebook page to keep updated.

So, here’s to an exciting year. In the meantime, here’s a few of my favourites from the past twelve months…




If you’re expecting a new bundle of joy this year, if you’d love to capture some relaxed and natural family portraits, if you’re getting married or if you have a business and want to learn how to take better photos of your products – I can help!  Drop me a line.  And HAPPY NEW YEAR:)

WHEN //  Sunday 7th December
WHERE // At my studio in Helston (Courtyard studio, Creftow, 6 Church Street, Helston)
INCLUDES // Half an hour mini session, plus all digital images


Current availability:

10 – 10.30 // Booked

10.45 – 11.15 // Booked

11.30 – 12 // Booked

12.45 – 1.15  // Booked

1.30 – 2  // Booked

2.15 – 2.45  // Booked

3 – 3.30  // Booked


How do I book?
Bookings are made on a first come first served basis. To avoid confusion, bookings will ONLY be accepted by comment or PM on my Donna Sharpe Photography facebook business page.
Your booking is secured by making full payment before 5pm on 5th December.
If full payment has not been received by 5pm on 5th December your time slot will be released for re-booking.

What’s included?
A 30 minute photo shoot in my studio, plus your full selection of final edited images available digitally (either as an email with a link to download or for £5 a cd posted to you).

How many photos will I get?
I’ve run a number of mini sessions in the past and I say an average of 10 images. However, I make no guarantees as to the number of images that will be provided, as it very much depends on the ‘subjects’.  For example if you would like photos of your baby but they cry through the session it can be hard to achieve 10 images, however if you’re a family of four with children who love to be in front of the camera and we can achieve multiple combinations (children individually, children together, children with parents, parents alone etc) then there are often more than 10.

How and when will I receive the images?
Your photographs will be made available to you within a few days of the shoot.  They will be available digitally, in high resolution, for you to print and share as you please. You have the option of an email with a link to download the images, or for £5 I can post a CD to you.

How can I pay for my session?
Payment can be made online by bank transfer (details provided on booking)

Promotional use of images
By booking your session you agree to me using the images on my website, in promotional leaflets etc, or on social media, for the purposes of promoting my work as Donna Sharpe Photography.

I’ll need to be really strict in terms of timing on the day so please ensure that you arrive on time, late arrivals will lose that time for their session.


If you think of any more questions don’t hesitate to ask:)
