Why did you choose Photography for little people?
I started with Photography for little people (PLP) over four years ago, when I was a young mum. I was looking for more flexibility in my life as my son started school. I had always loved photography and was keen to run my own business, where I was the boss and could say ‘yes enjoy sports day’ or not feel guilty calling in when my children were sick.
What do you love about being a franchisee?
I love that you have your own business, but the support of others behind you who really ‘get it’. There is guidance and training from head office from day one as well as ongoing, and emotional support and ideas shared with other franchisees.
With two young children, I could design my business to fit around my family. It means I don’t have to sacrifice my career or my family – it offers a wonderful balance.
I feel very privileged that my work takes me to that magic moment when children enter the world, and are welcomed in to a new family with love and wonder. Being able to capture that is pure magic.
I really feel that franchises offer that perfect support to women, and men, who want to build a business around their family or other life commitments that they choose.
