We had a very early start for our shoot at St Pancras, up and out of the house by 5.30am in the car driving to Harrow to pick up the early train to Euston. I must say every time I get on a train in London I’m quite glad we don’t have to do the ‘train run’ every day! We were pleased to be given a seat on the train as it was heaving and standing room only. Anyway as we stepped off the train it became apparent that I had to keep a very tight hold of Aisling as we were nearly caught up in the ‘zombie run’ I mean commuter traffic!!
Short walk down Euston Road and we arrive at the shoot. I was told to look for someone wearing bright orange jackets and low and behold at the bottom of the escalators was the 3D penguin promotion. The crew and photographer were very friendly and Aisling went quickly to start posing.
It was a busy area as commuters were passing but Aisling kept concentrating even though she was being asked to move off the 3D imagine whilst members of the public had their own photos taken.
The only downside was Aisling had to wear a hat but as it was freezing it was actually a blessing. Funnily though after two hours of photos we were finished and as we went into the toilets Aisling got her first glimpse of how she looked in her woolly hat…needless to say the hat was quickly removed with some mutterings of ‘I look a right geek’. !! Thank goodness we were finished!
Oh to be a model what lovely things she is asked to do! Above all we both really enjoyed it and a bonus Aisling got to go back to school that day (I leave it to your imagine the face I got when I told her she had to go in).
Thank you Bizzykidz and Dawnie of course.
