aldi christmas advert girls

aldi-christmas

You know it is near Christmas when you start seeing festive adverts on the TV. Last week I had a great portrait photography photo shoot in the studio with three girls who are the stars of the new Aldi Christmas TV advert.

Seven-year-old Emma Kearney and Layla Hamilton and Hollie Lyons, both five, discuss their love of Aldi’s chocolate reindeer in the budget supermarket’s advert.The girls feature in a montage of clips showing ordinary folk enjoying the store’s food.

And while the big high street names have spent millions on their festive commercials, it’s the three little girls in tinsel halos and
cardboard wings who have charmed the nation.

Layla’s mum Debbie, 30, from Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow, joked: “She thinks she’s famous.

“She was waving at the binman the other day. She thought he must have seen her on the telly.

“And she’s telling everyone that she’s been on X Factor because the advert was shown during the commercial break.” First-time actress Hollie, from Larkhall, Lanarkshire, went along to the ad audition “just for fun” and was stunned to land the role.

Mum Leanne, 33, said: “She really enjoyed herself, though we didn’t see the ad until it appeared on the telly. Now we watch it over and over again.”

Emma, from Renfrew, bought herself an iPad with her fee from Aldi but she’s just as chuffed with the Young Achievers Award she received from Renfrewshire Council in recognition of her TV breakthrough.

Dad Stuart, 41, said: “The John Lewis ad cost millions and the M&S one was the same.

“But the Aldi ad probably reflects more of what real people think about Christmas.”

Emma isn’t quite sold on a screen career.

The One Direction fan said: “I want to be a vet – but I might be an actress on Saturdays.”

On the day of the shoot, the girls were brilliant. I started off by getting some posed shots in front of the camera. At this point the girls were being a little shy, so I decided to get them to run and jump about. This always works to get kids warmed up as they really just enjoying carrying on and It works great in the pictures as their smiles are totally natural. Once the girls were more relaxed, I then done some more posed portraits. They worked out better this time as the girls were a lot more confident and hopefully enjoying themselves.

In the end I was left with a great set of pictures and had lots of fun at the same time.
