Our New Home

We are settling into our new home, a Photography Studio in Dunston, Chesterfield after closing down our operations in the Kiddicare Superstore in Peterborough.

On Tuesday our beautifully behaved models took on the task of a studio shoot at Chrysalis Towers each with 3 to 4 costume changes and nailed it, despite the soaring temperature in the studio. Their reward for doing such a beautiful job was an old fashioned Yorkshire fish & chip supper in our sunny Sheffield garden! What more do a group of 4 – 10 year olds need after a hard afternoons graft! Wednesday meant a trip to Rother Valley Country Park near Sheffield to complete the second part of our commercial shoot .. on location! Look out, look out there are RUKKA kids about. Again the kids were great and humored the diva photographer by […]
