And the winners are………

    As members of a National Professional Photographers Group, run by Internationally renowned & respected Photographer Mark Cleghorn,  we had the opportunity to submit a couple of our images for their annual awards.  This year the categories were: Family Pets Teens Under 5’s Open   I am chuffed to pieces to announce that, as well as being as finalist in two other categories, Chris has been awarded 2015 under 5’s Portrait Photographer, AND 2015 Teen Portrait Photographer!!! We are thrilled to say the least. As if that wasn’t amazing enough we have also been handed one of only 2 awards in the country for achieving a 5 Star Studio status. After 8 years of incredible hard work and sacrifice this award is particularly special to us, as it recognises the highest quality of photography experience we aim to provide to every one of our clients.           The winning images are shown below. The clients of both winning images receive a fantastic photography prize worth up to £500.

The wedding of Pete and Sophie – Bedfordshire

It’s particularly lovely for me to capture the wedding day of a couple that I have already had chance to get to know. The recent wedding of Pete and Sophie was a perfect example of this. They were first introduce to me through their close friends, Neil and Jess, after they had been to us a number of for family portraits with their little boy. This was back in the day when we had a strong studio presence in Peterborough, so a short trip from Bedfordshire was easy. However, when Pete and Soph announced their engagement it was not long before they dragged them two hours up to our Chesterfield studio, where they combined an up-to-date family shoot, a wedding consultation and a weekend away. Pete and Sophie are a wonderful couple and so I was thrilled when they chose me as their wedding photographer. They even came up a second time, with Neil and Jess, and we spent a lovely couple of hours at Padley Gorge, for an engagement shoot. So once you’ve spent that much time together they stop being clients and feel much more like friends, making their wedding day even more special for me. They’re on […]

Baby Esmae – perfect+

  This is gorgeous little Esmae who lit up our studio recently.  She was a delight to photograph and I was able to capture some really cute smiles. Esmae is also that little bit extra special in that she was born with an extra-little finger on her right hand, a perfectly formed little extra toe on her right foot, and a weeny little extra toe on her left foot. Esmae’s mum was keen for me to capture images of her hands and feet to remember them so tiny, and to be able to show Esmae when she’s older. On the advice of surgeons they may decide to have her little pinky removed at a later date if it is the best thing for Esmae. But for now it was simply wonderful to see this extra special child, and to be able to capture these wonderful images for them. Thanks very much to Esmae’s mum for letting us show the results.          

Monochrome fashion photo shoot

Following on from our previous post of Hollywood Glamour images, here’s a couple of images from the second part of the shoot. In these images we were aiming for a ’60s monochrome look. It was great to see the rapid transformation in the girls, after the first part of the shoot, and was a credit to Amy McCullach for the hair styling, and Amanda Humphreys for the makeup. Our models, Niamh and Jess, did a great job as well. Why not give us a call about our full fashion makeover shoots, either for yourself, your business, or perhaps a gift for someone.
