Little Love Photography by Fiona Norman (LSWPP)
That's me above! I'm a photographer, mum of two highly energetic, sweet boys and married a lovely man I went to school with. I'm friendly, very adaptable when it comes to working with different personalities (especially children) and have learnt since become a mother not to sweat the small stuff! They are all fantastic, funny and sometimes challenging in their own way. Every child I photograph is different, they are motivated by different things (be it praise, jokes, chocolate or a gentle, approach quiet). I place this idea at the centre of all of my sessions and really let the child lead as much as possible.
