This photoshoot at Linthwaite Hotel Windermere Cumbria was a commercial project for the Hotel to advertise their new Hot Tub bedroom. I have only included one of those images as the Linthwaite Hotel will be using some on their own website and brochures. Whilst we were there though we took the opportunity to produce some images for Louise, our model, for use in her own portfolio. This was the first time she has taken part in a professional photoshoot and she was a star!
The Linthwaite Hotel is a beautiful venue and I can do no better than quote their own description ‘Our luxury country house hotel was awarded “Most Excellent Country House Hotel” by Conde Nast Johansens. Linthwaite has 4 AA red stars, (Inspector’s Choice), and 3 AA Rosettes for food, putting it in the top 150 restaurants in the UK. It offers luxury short breaks in the Lake District. Our beautiful lake views of Windermere and 14 acres of private gardens mean we have one of the best locations for luxury hotel breaks in the Lake District.” So if you are looking for a break in The Lake District give them a call and try out that Hot Tub!

This is just a small selection from the family portrait photoshoot we did with the Stevenson family a little while ago. They did not want anything too formal, just a record of enjoying themselves whilst they were all together in one place. I don’t know whether it is me but it seems that families are forgetting to get these moments recorded as they all grow up, and that is a real shame. When a family has a pictorial record of all of their members growing up through each stage of their life it is priceless. None of us can go back in time can we! The days of all sitting or standing in a row and saying ‘cheese’ have gone. We have the ability today to capture moments. So this shoot was done for the Mum of the three sisters and they presented her with a lovely Photobook at the end of it. We all live in a world surrounded by technology but I think it is a good thing occasionally to remember that the ‘older’ things, like family albums, can bring hours of fun and satisfaction.
