A little rain wasn't going to deter the people of Disley! December 6th 2016 saw hundreds of people turn out for the Disley Tree Lighting on the Ram Green, outside the Rams Head Pub, Disley. Phil the Butcher kept us all fed, as did Lyme Perk and various other eateries. The many pubs were open and serving drinks to the masses. Santa showed up on his sleigh and lots of eager children got to discuss their wish lists with the main man himself! Dame Sarah Storey was our very Special Guest of Honour and it was lovely to meet her and her gorgeous daughter. Sarah is the most decorated paralympian in Great Britain's history and although I regularly see her cycling past my house, I thought it might be inappropriate to run out and shove a camera in her face which is why I left it til I was asked to take her photograph at this official event ;)!! (I'm sure Sarah is most appreciative of this fact - haha). The magnificent firework display was enjoyed by all especiallly whilst stood outside Frankies Wine Bar... which is where I ended my rather lengthy photographic journey of photos with Santa at the Disley School Fair followed by these documentary style images for Disley Parish Council and Disley Business Group.  My husband very kindly popped my camera equipment back home and I joined my friends for a much needed Vodka and Tonic, or two ;)

Disley is a great place to live and work and the community spirit always shines through when families and friends gather at events like these! Cheers!!

Cheshire Tour of Britain: Stage 3 Winner Ian Stannard cycles through Pott Shrigley Brickworks http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2016/9/cheshire-tour-of-britain-stage-3-winner-ian-stannard-cycles-through-pott-shrigley What a glorious day for the Cheshire Tour of Britain. Before winning Stage 3 after a breakaway ride, Ian Stannard and the other cyclists pelted through Cheshire - specifically right past me and my husband who had been eagerly awaiting their arrival along with a few other local spectators. Quite proud of myself for walking a mile or so to our vantage point after pulling a muscle at netball (yes, you read correctly) last Tuesday... how long do these things take to heal? If only I'd got chance to ask one of the cyclists (my fellow athletes).... you can stop laughing now.

Anyway, really pleased I got to capture some shots of these guys - they really are very fast!!  Hope you enjoy the images.

Camden Brawl London presents Move It Camden http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/4/camden-brawl-london-presents-move-it-camden Saturday 11th April 2015 saw me on the 6.31 train from Macclesfield to Euston - eek! It would be fair to say, I'm not a morning person! Barely slept the night before for fear of not waking up so powered myself on coffee and red bull (beautiful mixture NOT!) for the next 18 hours! ... Oh and just a sip or two of Prosecco at the after party! Slightly delirious by this point!!

The sun shone on Camden Market and the family fitness fanatics turned out in droves for this event! A huge success! Baby disco, cheerleading, hip hop dance, face painting, kids yoga, magician, Bollywood dancing, zumba kids class and much more! So why hire a photographer all the way from Manchester, you may ask? Because I'm the best of course!!!! Oh and I happen to have been bezzie buddies with the hostess Natasha, since we were about 4! Other than that, and the fact I wanted to help in any way I could, the selection was purely based on my superior photography skills, I am sure of it!! You can pay me when Camden Brawl goes global, guys! I may actually hold you to this! Haha!

I've known Natasha, as I've said, all my 'memorable' life and she always has and always will put her all into everything she does - this event was no exception. "I'm so proud of you Tasha - you deserve all the success in the World!"

Here's a little background into the event and Camden Brawl Clothing: Camden Brawl, which launched on 11th April at Camden Stables Market, is the UK’s first casual and sports wear label drawing inspiration from Camden’s rich history of the bare knuckle and gloved fighters who sustained the area in the 19th and 20th centuries. In this spirit, the company is committed to employing and training local disadvantaged youngsters at every level of its business. The launch took place in conjunction with Camden Stables Market’s free event on 11th April 2015 featuring #moveitcamden which aimed and succeeded in getting the local community active with a series of exercise classes for individuals and families at Camden Foundry including zumba, yoga, boxing, hip-hop and dance.

The Camden Brawl sport-hardy range bears vintage imagery of well-known, often obscure and long forgotten local journeymen as homage to the triumphs and tragedies of the colourful culture of the boxing ring.

The Camden boxers of old were often the poorest people in the community, fighting simply to put food on the table. Many young lads of 16-17 had lost their fathers during the Great War and were the family breadwinners. Labourers would earn £3 for 45 hours a week if they were lucky. No wonder the prospect of a fight for 30 shillings or £2 was an exciting prospect.

Camden Brawl is the brainchild of Camden natives Peter Crimmins and Natasha Nother. Says Nother; “The Camden Brawl project aims to create a range of robust and cool sportswear linking Camden to its noble boxing past as well as providing outreach activities to strengthen community ties for local youngsters to divert anti-social behaviour, promote interdependence, and challenge injustices of opportunity. To this end our range salutes Camden’s prize fighters of old, including Tom Sayers, George Odwell who won 159 fights of which 111 were KO’s, Gypsy Jonny Frankham, Tom “Paddington” Jones, and not for one moment forgetting the ladies; Elizabeth “Lady Bare Knuckles” Stokes and Bella of Blackfriars, the first female boxing promoter.”

Says Crimmins “ My background  is in pro-fighting, martial arts, and track athletics as well as many years becoming qualified in the “science” of Camden’s street life. I come from a long line of Camden boxers,  who, back in the day, would survive rounds and rounds of gruelling punishment, sometimes 90 plus”.

What Mums Really Want on Mother's Day http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/3/what-mums-really-want-on-mothers-day What does every mum really want on Mother's Day?  Flowers? Chocolates?  Why not give something less predictable this year? ....  Give her your time! Giving vouchers for a family shoot for your wife, mother or grandmother shows them how much they mean to you and that you understand just how much you mean to them.  Every mother wants 'time' - more time with their children and the ones they love.  Whether in the studio or outdoors, shoots are always fun and the resulting professionally edited images will give so much enjoyment for years to come.

Your Mum will want time to prepare and beautify herself and no doubt everyone else, so a Gift Voucher really is the perfect gift!

Mother's Day is on Sunday, 15th March 2015!  Give a gift with a difference this year!

Mothers Day Gift Discount at Pebble Blossom Interiors http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/3/mothers-day-gift-discount-at-pebble-blossom-interiors I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine - as two business women living and working in Disley we have regularly attended networking and women in business-type meetings together over the years and I had the pleasure of producing some commercial imagery for Sarah.  Sarah has made some fabulous roman blinds for my home - I will post those images another time but for now wanted to bring your attention to a fabulous workshop that Sarah is running very soon!  I wish Sarah the best of luck with both this workshop and her business in general - she is extremely hardworking and a very talented lady!  Please have a look at her website and support local businesses: www.pebbleblossom.co.uk

Sarah Sharp runs Pebble Blossom Interiors from the workshop at her home in Disley, Cheshire. In addition to providing a bespoke service to clients for soft furnishings, Sarah teaches others how to make their own. From Roman blinds to curtains and cushions, Sarah uses her teaching experience, gained as a Secondary School Teacher to convey her passion for interiors, fabrics and sewing. Sarah has had students from far and wide to learn to make home furnishings, with one student travelling from Canada to spend time in her workroom!

Roman Blind making is the most popular tuition day, with students being able to complete a blind in the day and take it home with them. They are a popular window treatment, with their clean lines and are perfect for places where space is at a premium. Creativity can help our feeling of well-being and making something yourself is a fantastic way to gain satisfaction and a real sense of achievement. Sarah likes students to have something they can go home with, and always ensures her workshops and tuition days allow students to leave not only with their new-found knowledge, but  with a finished item, which they often like to show off to family and friends.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Sarah is running a special Roman Blind workshop day on 28th March from 10am -1pm. Book by Mother’s Day to receive a £5 discount on the usual rate of £55.  All materials are provided for the day, as well as refreshments.  During the workshop, you will learn how to measure a window, calculate fabric, where to position folds and make up a small sample blind to takehome. Detailed notes will be provided and a workshop certificate will be awarded to acknowledge your success on the day.

Happy St David's Day Llywelyns and The Crafty Kitten http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/3/happy-st-davids-day-llywelyns-and-the-crafty-kitten As today is St David's Day it seems like the perfect time to share images of our family cafe bar in Wales.  My family have been buying and renovating property for about 20 years and became interested in the old Albion pub two years ago when the building had been for sale for a couple of years and was becoming dilapidated.  It is a grade 2 listed building right in the middle of town which is in Llanwrst's conservation area. As local residents they wanted to rescue it and renovate so that the building could become a viable and vibrant business once more.  They have installed sash windows, extended at the back, installed a state of the art kitchen and created a lovely contemporary Bar - Cafe - Bistro ambiance.

As well as good beer, wine and spirits, they are offering quality locally sourced, freshly cooked, traditional food at affordable prices in a friendly atmosphere.  Breakfast until dinner, eat in or take away.

If you are ever in the area, please pop in - it's well worth the visit - Llywelyns, Denbigh Street, Llanwrst.

Mother and Daughter Photo Shoot at Lyme Hall http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/2/mother-and-daughter-photo-shoot-at-lyme-hall With Mother's Day just round the corner, well 16 days to be precise, I decided to dig back into the archives of my images to 2011 to one of my favourite shoots.  Hilary, her gorgeous daughters and I took a stroll around the beautiful grounds of Lyme Hall set in the simply fantabulous Lyme Park, Disley.  It was a beautiful day, Hilary was totally open to my ideas about positioning and posing - we formally discussed this with the girls and..... well, that was never really going to happen, was it!! Haha!

Anyone who has been on a shoot with me will know I am not one to force people to pose (especially children).  Let's just say, I 'cajole' them into being where I want them and then with some gentle persuasion by a parent (usually in the form of joking around or tickling or bribery....whatever works!), I capture the truly natural expressions and interactions between children and their parents.  No-one wants a bossy, shouty, moody photographer and I certainly don't feel that would relax or get the best out of anyone.  That said, I would avoid booking me for an early morning shoot - just saying! ;)

I constantly photograph my children (shocking, I know!) - sometimes simply on my iPhone- everyday stuff, not much good for print but great to look back on, until I loose my phone...again.  I urge anyone who hasn't recently, take the time to book a professional shoot and allow me to capture the here and now - I promise it will be worth your time and investment!  Please contact me now for my latest price list and to check availability.

Gift Vouchers available from just £20 - make Mother's Day one to remember this year!

Heavy Snow Fall Brings Disley to a Stand Still http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/2/heavy-snow-fall-brings-disley-to-a-stand-still It's not often you can sledge into Disley Village Centre but Thursday 29th January 2015 was one of those days! I think most of the villagers were taken by surprise at the sheer volume of snow that fell on our little village and we were surprised to learn that there was hardly any in Marple and Stockport. Roads and pavements merged into one and fortunately most people - well most of our friends were able to work from home - well, at least for the morning! Let's just say, with the buses being cancelled to High Schools and many of the local schools closed, by lunch time the Rams Head pub was packed! All the children had a blast having snowball fights out the back, whilst the adults took advantage of the forced holiday inside the warm and cosy pub!

George Clarke's Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year 2014 Finalist http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/1/george-clarkes-amazing-spaces-shed-of-the-year-2014-finalist Loved being involved with this! George Clarke's Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year 2014.  This aired on 31st July 2014 on Channel 4 and I got to spend an evening taking pictures of Max McMurdo (a very nice guy!) with Michael Durcan (equally very nice) and behinds the scenes stylee shots for PR purposes (as quietly I could) whilst the TV crew filmed this. If you heard any clicking noises it's me!  I had a friendly raised eyebrow from the sound engineer at one point and then I remembered I have a 'silent shoot' mode on my 5D MkIII! Oops!!!

Mike of Birdhouse Follies is simply amazing - the attention to detail and the amount of effort he puts into each creation really has to be seen to be believed. Apparently uncomfortable in front of the camera - he came across really well and his wife kept us fuelled with tea and cakes (very nice cakes!!!). Even though Mike didn't win in his category, I think he is going to be inundated with orders. Although having met Mike, I'm still not sure he'll part with any! Well done Mike!!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/1/walking-in-a-winter-wonderland When I woke up about a week ago and realised everywhere was covered in snow, I grabbed my camera equipment and started screaming at the kids to get ready!  Finally, I thought - I can get the images for a large multi frame I have been meaning to fill for.... well, to be honest, over a year!  I love shooting on a bright snowy day - it's beautiful!!! It's like having one huge reflector bouncing the light all over - which makes for fabulous images!

We had to be fast - the daylight was literally fabulous for the morning and shortly after lunch it was very dull. I love seeing the kids all snuggly in their winter coats and hats and I am a big fan of wellies and boots - there's just something fun about these style of images and these are the types of images I love adorning my walls at home.  This is something to consider when you are choosing which season to have your outdoor shoot!

This was obviously a personal project but I work in a similar way with clients (apart from the screaming part - honest!!) - when they are after a snow shoot, I am very flexible and naturally they need to be too! It is usually the case, that when the perfect day presents itself and hopefully I am not already booked in the studio, we have a few phone calls back and forth and all being well - make a dash for Lyme Park or somewhere spacious where we can chase the light. As lovely as these images look, it is actually technically quite difficult shooting in such bright light but it's worth it in the end.  I can't wait to get these printed so I can enjoy them all year round!

Autumn Smiles in Lyme Park http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/1/autumn-smiles-lyme-park Lyme Park in the Autumn is gorgeous. The gentle light and scenery is absolutely stunning.  Little Caoimhe was a delight to photograph - smiling and giggling pretty much throughout the entire session. Mum and Dad kept her entertained with skipping, leaf throwing and generally getting more muddy as the session went on - but lets face it, mud can be good fun! 

Thank you to Martin and Eileen for this lovely testimonial:

"We are absolutely delighted with the pictures from our photoshoot. We chose Lyme Park as our location and explained to Stephanie the type of pictures we were looking for. Stephanie was brilliant from start to finish. She captured lots of amazing pictures and we found it difficult to choose which ones we wanted! A truly talented photographer to whom we are grateful for capturing such wonderful memories".

Izzy and Nics Stockport Town Hall and Deanwater Wedding http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/1/izzy-and-nics-stockport-town-hall-and-deanwater-wedding When it comes to photographing for friends, I think the pressure is on even more than normal! Never more so, when the brief is just that... 'brief'! Other than making sure I got some decent pics of their girls, they both expressed a strong wish not to be posed or messed about with - fine by me!! When Nic came to speak to me about their Wedding - the conversation mainly consisted of us reminiscing about being in our teens/twenties, politics (this was admittedly quite brief due to my ignorance!) and work - Oooh then there was the final two minutes of Nic saying something along the lines of "Just do what you do, Steph - that'll be fine!"

I met them both at Stockport Town Hall - the rain poured down but nothing could dampen their spirits - they were so relaxed about the whole thing.. well, they seemed to be.  Izzy looked stunning in a beautiful lace dress - Nic scrubbed up well too (sorry Nic - couldn't resist)! Their two beautiful little bridesmaid daughters walked down the aisle as Nic did his best to hide the tears in his eyes (we saw them Nic!), Izzy was led down the aisle by her father towards a very proud looking husband-to-be.  Once the formalities were over - there was a quick dash to the cars.

Still raining when we reached The Deanwater Hotel, Wilmslow but shortly after our arrival the sun broke through the clouds and once the speeches and Wedding Breakfast were finished everyone flooded out onto the terrace. Their choice of song for the first dance sparked smiles all round and as they jived around to Pharrell Williams' Happy - everyone joined in and the dancing continued into the evening.

The most important thing to them really was for everyone to have a great party and that we did! Yes, me included - back to a friends hotel room for a quick freshen up, flat shoes off and party heels on and I was back! Where's the bar?!!!!

So lovely to be asked to do this and great to see so many familiar faces - thanks Nic and Izzy!  They recently left message this in my guestbook - Cheers!

"I'd seen some of Stephanie's photos prior to our wedding and never gave it a second thought, she was the one for our special day. I especially liked her style of capturing the moment without false staging.  We've enjoyed viewing the slide show she prepared many times since our wedding last May.
Thanks again Steph xxx"

Alex and James Manchester Town Hall Wedding http://www.stephanierobinson.co.uk/blog/2015/1/alex-and-james-manchester-town-hall-wedding As the Wedding enquiries are coming in right now - I thought it only appropriate to share some images with you. As this is my second ever blog post I have decided to go all the way back to 2013 to one of my first Weddings! Alex and James approached me after a portrait shoot with Alex, her sister and their mother in Lyme Park. I was quite open with them about the fact that I was relatively new to the Wedding game in terms of 'photography' (that's a story for another time) so I was chuffed to bits when they put their trust in me!

What a day! I had fallen up stairs (who falls 'up' stairs?) a week before and ended up having the front of my head stitched, well glued. By the day of the Wedding, lets just say the glue was looking less than appealing half stuck in my hair so I decided the best thing would be to stick a plaster on it - attractive! When I turned up at the Hilton, Manchester, Alex's face was a picture. "Oh no, my photographer has a head injury". I assured her that I still had partial vision and would be fine - my little joke!

Having missed the fire alarm and near evacuation of the Hilton, I arrived to a slightly tense atmosphere which I tried my best to calm, without stressing anyone out any further. As the ladies were beautified and I was handed a glass of fizz (just the one - for medicinal purposes, you understand), I set about photographing all the details and interactions - I ended up helping with suspenders and stockings at one point. Bet you're glad you hadn't hired a male photographer at that point, hey Alex? haha.

Alex and her bridesmaids looked stunning as they left the Hilton. A short journey to Manchester Town Hall, a quick skip past Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Chris Hoy and lots of official looking men in suits with earpieces and we're ready! James looked so proud of Alex as she walked down the aisle - captured in many of the photos. Both seemed to instantly relax once they set eyes on each other and I don't think the giggling stopped from that point onwards!

This couple were so much fun and we got lots of great shots running through the great hallways of Manchester Town Hall - we even decided to take a little trip through the streets of Manchester, which caused a few raised eyebrows! Into the Great Hall for the Wedding Breakfast, where the traditional embarrassment of the Bride and Groom is mandatory! Into the early evening as more guests arrive and the dancing begins! Now having a headache beyond belief and the realisation my head has started to bleed - I made a private emergency call to my husband to 'get here by any means possible'.  I finished off the shoot without concerning the Bride and Groom about my imminent collapse - as I said my goodbyes people shook my hand and remarked on how well I had blended in and the manner in which I conducted myself, which was very flattering.  I was driven home to pain killers and bed whilst the party carried on into the night!

It was lovely to speak with Alex and James again after their Wedding and obviously to share their images with them. I hope to see you both again one day but for now hope you had a fabulous first year of marriage and that everyone had a great Christmas!
