Sainsburys Big Book of Summer-Jamie Hotchkiss

We arrived at the studios in London at 9am and were given a lovely breakfast. Jamie then got changed into his outfit for the day, met the other models and then went straight onto set. He was being filmed for a DVD of craft ideas for parents to make with their kids in the summer holidays plus he was having images shot for the accompanying book.
The crew on the set were lovely, and there were a few familiar faces from previous shoots. There were three separate shoots during the day all focussing on different craft ideas. Jamie had a great day and hit it off with the the crew, he had them laughing a lot!
It was a very long and tiring day but great fun. Thanks BK for the job, and thanks to Dawnie for answering my continuous stream of queries and questions!




Firstly, big thanks to Bizzykidz for this amazing opportunity. Janae had 2 days on set for Laura Ashley’s Autumn Winter 13 line and she thoroughly enjoyed it. On the first day she settled in with the other models quite quickly as they had a ‘girly slumber party’ set up. She said she enjoyed the second day even more, (despite the 2 hour drive to get there) as they shot outdoors in beautiful surroundings. The team were lovely, ensuring we were comfortable and kept the kids laughing. I’m so proud of her. We’re both looking forward to seeing the pictures online and for any other opportunities coming our way. Keep up the good work guys!




We have a very proud mummy today when she opened The Times newspaper and spotted her little Max on a TWO PAGE SPREAD with his Barclaycard shoot.

How lovely!



I would just like to thank Bizzykidz for my sons first photo shoot with a well know client, Dawn made the process so easy for myself and my son and the day was very organised and the client was so friendly and helpful my son felt very much at ease and was not made to do anything he did not want to do. I would definitly recommend Bizzykidz to all my friends and colleages, thanks once again Dawn x



I scooped Sydney out of bed at 7am, poor little thing didn’t know what was happening. I left early in case of traffic to get Sydney to her first shoot on time.  once we stopped for breakfast on the m25 services, she was more awake and really excited about having her picture taken, once I said she would probably be playing with toys she told me to hurry up and get back in the car!

When we arrived the clients and staff all made us feel really welcome. she loved being dressed and having her hair tidied! Sydney was a little overwhelmed when we went onto the set, but once she found out the photographer had worked with one direction she was more than happy to pose whilst playing with the toys, especially as they let mummy plug her phone into the speakers to play one directions songs over and over again…after about 30 minutes of shooting they had all they needed and we were free to go…Sydney wanted to stay and play with some of the other toys but I finally convinced her it was time to go with the promise of one direction stickers.  thank you BizzyKidz for getting Sydney her first shoot, it was a great day out and hopefully this is the first of many great days out for us.
