It’s been a few years since I last had professional photos taken for work. After meeting a very talented young photographer called Joanna at my friend Laura Hamilton’s charity baby shower, I was delighted to have the chance to work with her on a new shoot.

For the shoot we used Joanna’s home studio, then travelled to the Walled Garden in Midhurst and finally Petworth Park, which is absolutely stunning.

It was such a treat to have my hair and make-up done for the shoot!Joanna arranged for my hair to be blow-dried by Karen Williams from Mane Street in Midhurst and for my make-up to be done by Marcie Simmonds who also works at Mane Street.

Some of the items of clothing worn during my shoot whilst in The Walled Gardens and Petworth Park was been supplied by Stepping Out in Midhurst.

Below is a selection of some of the photographs taken by Joanna.

Please take a look at Joanna’s website to see more of her work, I highly recommend her services.
