Spirit

By backbeat    
I've done a few shoots with Labonya now...she was badly burned as a child and suffered terribly with bullying at school. She always dreamed of doing modelling, and worked up courage to do a photoshoot about a year ago....since then she has done many, and her confidence has really returned, and now the newspapers and TV have picked up on her story

She was in the Daily Mirror last week (with a couple of my images in), and i had Yorkshire TV round at my studio to film me doing a shoot with her, followed by interviews etc...scary stuff..lol

Anyhow, it was very short notice, and i had nothing planned, so we just winged it really....i got a few that i was pleased with though, this being one of 'em..

thanks for looking

She's beautiful. The way you've captured her, she reminds me of an Indian Princess........Sandy

I have seen her before - you've done justice to a really strong, beautiful woman.
Is the Yorkshire TV item available online? It would be interesting to see.
