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.

Newborn Baby Photography Chesterfield – Charlotte

Well it’s been another fantastic week at our Chesterfield studio. Yet again my promises of regular blog posts has given way to the shooting, editing and ordering side of the business. But I couldn’t resist putting a couple of images from a recent newborn baby photography shoot we did a couple of weeks ago. This is little baby Charlotte, and she was just under two weeks old. It’s rare we get the chance to capture images of babies this tiny, and it’s the ideal time to capture them, while they’re still very sleepy. Once babies reach 3 weeks and older it’s much harder to capture images like this. For more information about our newborn baby photography shoots, visit our baby photography page.

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!
