"Outstanding" specialist newborn photographer in Monmouthshire - International Women's Day

Outstanding Monmouthshire baby photographer

Two years ago, I wanted to do something to mark International Women’s Day. As well as the inspirational women in my family, I’ve met a number of incredible women along the way as I’ve built my business, and I felt the need to create awareness of how strong and amazing these women were. I came up with the idea of featuring approximately five women on my blog, with a headshot taken by me and a short editorial on what drives them in their business.

So, with some trepidation, I approached my network. Perhaps two or three would respond, I thought. Perhaps nobody, as my finger nervously hovered over the “send” button. I clicked it, and went to make a cup of coffee.

By the time I came back, my inbox was almost overflowing with interested messages…I was shocked! I decided to reply to the first ten, and the beginnings of the project were in place. I travelled across South Wales, meeting these wonderful, inspiring women, hearing their stories and photographing them in different settings. The whole project grew…I was put in touch with a journalist from Wales Online and the Western Mail, and you can click here to see the finished article, and here for my blog post.

This year, it’s my turn! Along with three other businesswomen in the Monmouthshire area, I’m featured in the Chepstow and Monmouthshire Beacon newspapers, however rather than using a photograph of me I preferred to show off some of my work instead (although the top of the photograph has been chopped off, which is a bit annoying!). Here are some quick snaps of the article in full and my piece within it…
