Official Launch Party – What a ball!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I can not thank you all enough who made the official launch party on Wed 26th of April 2017 the success it was: we enjoyed bubbles, Café Ribizli's lush cupcakes and biscuits (gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian), Keri the Florist's beautiful flower arrangement, lovely & inspirational chats with everyone who attended, all (but me) entered into the prize draw and everyone got to take a goodie bags to take home – if you got one, how did you like it? Leave a comment to share what you liked the best.

A big thank you also to my team of professional hair & makeup artists! They made all guests feel welcome, just like they would typically when working with me on a portrait session (in random order): Alison Oswald, Katie Reay Scott, Nadia Lynn, Dani Hartnett & Rachel Mathias.

And last, but no means least, the evening event was expertly captured by Tara Taylor.

And the winners are....
