Local Liverpool author Sarah Haywood has recently had her first novel 'The Cactus' published to astounding reviews. It is listed in the Richard and Judy book club pick and short listed for the best first novel award. The novel is also translated in over 6 different languages. I had the pleasure of taking Sarah's portrait for her publicity and social media. The portraits were taken at her home with natural lighting and some fill in flash to light the shadows. The brief was to photograph Sarah in a relaxed, inviting and engaging style.
