Tell us about how you lit and set up the image?

Would you like to mention any suppliers whose products or props are used in the image?
“The backdrop is from www.babyprops.co.uk and the romper was knitted by my mum.”
What does winning the showcase mean to you?
“It is really complimentary that my peers would select my image, it is quite affirming for me.”
What other elements of your BANPAS membership do you enjoy most?
“The monthly content. :-)”
How long have you been shooting professionally?
“Almost 5 years.”
Where do you work from?
Tell us about your goals for your business.
“To provide a great service for clients, but also support my family and achieve some balance.”
How do you push yourself, where do you draw your inspiration from?
