The Pramshed - Parents in Business

The Pramshed is a parenting, pregnancy, career, lifestyle and travel blog. I was thrilled to be invited to be featured in its popular ‘Parents in Business’ series.

In the article, I talk about how I first became interested in photography when my children were young, my motivations for setting up the business and how it has evolved over the years into the thriving maternity, newborn and family portrait studio that it is today.

I discuss how I manage the business around my, now teenage boys. Plus, I share my top tips for other parents who aspire to set up their own business.

Business for Mums is a blog which aims to inspire and support female entrepreneurs who are also parents. It was brilliant to have been interviewed for its ‘Mumpreneurs’ series.

During the interview, I talked about why I established Kingshill Studios, what inspired me to become a business owner and I revealed some of the challenges I’ve faced in business. I explain how I funded my business in the beginning, and what I believe to the best thing about being an entrepreneur.

The Press and Journal is a local newspaper who were interested to find out in how I became a photographer. A lot of people tell me I am very good with children, and there’s definitely reason behind it, I’m a mum of two and I also spent some years as Aberdeenshire Council’s youngest headteacher at 29 years old.

In the article I discuss how I made the transition from headteacher to photographer, and how I continue to do what I love most, working with people.
