Our new Sheffield Photography Studio

So finally we have finished the move to our fabulous new photography studio, in the grand surroundings of the Stable Block at Renishaw Hall, near Sheffield. It’s been a hard slog.  We’ve moved all the equipment ourselves in stages and fully painted and repaired both old and new studios ourselves, all to minimise disruption to our customers.  We must thank our parents for all the help with the painting, floor-laying and making of teas and coffees to enable us to open so quickly and efficiently.     There are a few little bits to finish and a fresh new set of wall art to invest in, but we’re ready and eager to receive customers old and new. So do pop in and see us soon (the coffee pot is always on) or call us on our new number 0114 4040898 to book in your photo session.  Make a day of it – Renishaw Hall & Gardens are beautiful and well worth a visit whilst you are here.  We look forward to seeing you.

Remember summer? A family portrait photography, Chesterfield

It’s raining in Derbyshire, raining cats and dogs and we want to remember what the sun looks like and how it felt to be warm.  So an account of a fabulous summer family portrait photography session should do the trick. On one of those rare sunny days during our summer (if you can call it that) we had the pleasure of welcoming one of our oldest customers to our Chesterfield Photography Studio.  Having previously been members of our Caterpillar Club – a baby photo club that we had been running at another studio in Peterborough – they still chose us as their preferred photographer and travel up to Derbyshire from Northampton, with their little ones for their regular photo sessions.  Having photographed Lauren from when she was newborn, it is so lovely to follow her progress and that of her baby brother’s.  We hope that one day she will be a one of our Chrysalis Photography Brides and we can recount her life in images almost from the day she was born.   We love to welcome old customers through the door of Chrysalis Studios in Dunston, Chesterfield and of course welcome those who have not visited us before.

The Chrysalis Photography Van

We’ve recently invested in a fantastic new company van. We’ve gone for a black colour choice to give us a great backdrop for some of our black and white images to be printed against. It also allows us to stand out a little more than your average ‘white van man’. We would like to send special thanks to NorthStar Signs for doing a fantastic job on the wrapping. It really does look great! [imagebrowser id=1]   Our van is a great addition for our clients too. First it gives us the ability to bring our portable studio to the place of your choice if you want your photographs taking in a certain location. Also, for our commercial clients it means we can collect and return any products you would like us to shoot in our studio.   We hope you like our choice of images. Perhaps you know somebody who would like a set of High Dynamic Range (HDR) images creating of their vehicle? Be sure to wave if you see us tootling down the street – You won’t miss us!

Grandparents Wanted….

The search is on for grandparents and their grandchildren to feature in a forthcoming book of classic black and white photographs.  Prompted by the questions of Chris’ own children Max & Ruby whilst looking back at old family photographs, Sheffield based Chrysalis Photography are urgently looking for fabulous grandparents to photograph with their grandchildren. While looking through old photograph albums one Sunday afternoon with the family, Max, aged 7, asked why there were no photos of Chris with his Grandad . Even though Chris had often spoken fondly about times spent with him, it had never occurred to the family to have proper photographs taken to look back on in later years.   The children then went on a hunt for photographs of both mummy & daddy with their grandparents, but images were few and far between.  In fact just one of Chris with his paternal grandfather and none of Allie with any of her grandparents. Chris has now made it his mission to create a book of black and white photographs of children with their grandparents, to include images of his own children, so that for some families (including his own) their will always be beautiful photography of grandparents […]
