Lily and Her I-Pad

Written by Jonathan Coleman on . Posted in Blog, Family Photographer Chester

We shot this some time ago but I wanted to share it with you and it’s back story.

Throughout her shoot Lily (3) kept on picking up her mum’s I-pad. Caroline explained that Lily loved the  machine and that she had her own folders and apps, which she constantly used.

Clearly, this was such a part of Lily’s life that we wanted to involve in her shoot BUT could not use the studio lights – they are so bright that the I-pad would have appeared to be switched off.

So we turned off all lights and, in darkness  asked Lily to stay really, really, still so that we could take an exposure long enough to illuminate her face with the light from the I-pad.

And, Bless Her, she did it!!!

…it went live today!!!

Have a good browse around and let us know what you think.

All just in time for The Cheshire Show on Tuesday. Come an say Hi if you are coming (in the Shoppers Mews marquee). We will be doing a really Special Offer on our new Photo Noir portraits with a massive discount on the sitting and complimentary art-mounted print.

Really different and quite classical. If you are looking for something different, and like Black & White, this might be it!

Hannah & Rankin

I cannot let today pass without saying how proud we are of Hannah Jones who came with her mum, dad and sister Molly for a family portrait several years ago.

This amazing lady, now in her early 20’s, has been challenged with brain tumours since her early teens and, since then, has raised loads-a-money for brain tumour research. 12 months ago she was an Olympic Torch bearer and had a front seat outside Buck House for the Jubilee Concert and, rightly, has won many awards and been featured on TV for both her courage and her tireless fundraising. Recently, however, she allowed herself to be ‘shot’ by another photographer!!!! I will let her off, though, it was Rankin, who is just about the biggest name in the business!!

Rankin has an exhibition running in Liverpool from August to September and she is featured in it.

It looks amazing – we will definately be going to that!!!

That’s it for now – have a great evening.
