Like many people, Kate hates being photographed. A fairly random natural light session was going to be best. We started by taking headshots in Kate's kitchen, wandered around Lymm, near Warrington where we both live and finished in the Coffee House, a fabulous café in the centre of the village. The natural light was [...]
