Derbyshire Portrait Session.
It doesn’t matter where in Derbyshire you go, the beauty of the countryside is completely encompassing. When asked to pick a favourite location, it is next to impossible, but I think we picked a pretty good spot to photograph the beautiful Kayleigh. Photographing this down to earth beautiful lady was an absolute blessing. She braced herself again the true Derbyshire elements and didn’t complain once when everyone else was wrapped up warm against the freezing cold. She just kept flashing her gorgeous smile.
When I first met Kayleigh, I had a strange sense of having seen her somewhere else before, which is quite possible as she works as model and has appeared on quite a lot of reality television shows. It wasn’t until much later that evening, when downloading her beautiful pictures, that it struck me. Growing up, my parents had a J.H. Lynch print on their wall of a mysterious beauty called “Tina”, also featured in his painting “the Nymph”. Whether it is her similar features or mysterious smile, looking at Kayleigh’s photographs transported me straight back to being a little girl and jumping on my parent’s bed!
For those of you not familiar with Lynch’s work, chances are you’ve seen them a hundred times. His paintings were mass reproduced as prints during the 70’s and 80’s and every middle class home featured one of his beautiful mysterious ladies. In fact a whole room in the movie “Clockwork Orange” is dedicated to this artist! Thank you Kayleigh for the beautiful pictures and the unexpected flashback of childhood memories!
