She said: “I was extremely proud to receive these awards. I work very hard trying to improve my photographic skills, and by entering awards you are stretching yourself and learning new techniques while keeping abreast of new styles emerging in the industry.

“I can then therefore pass on my skills not only to my customers but other photographers, as I am now a MPA mentor. This means I am now training other photographers and helping them gain qualifications which are so important in my industry.  I am also in training to be a judge for the Master Photographs Association and the Society of Wedding and Portrait photographers. To be asked to do this is a great honour and privilege.”
