A day with Debbie

Debbie booked the studio for the day along with Paul to work his magic with makeup and photography. Because Debbie booked the whole day we were able to take her to Manchester’s Canal Street for lunch at Velvet which was a wonderful break in the day. Here are the results of Debbie’s shoot.
