Abigail Webb, Tarporley photographer

A Tarporley woman ditched a dull council job to launch her dream photography business.

And Abigail Webb’s bold move is already paying off, after scooping a Bronze Bar in a national child portrait competition.

Abigail, 39, submitted her entry (pictured) into the Guild of Photographers National Competition.

She specialises in Children and Family Photography, with her shoots taking place in her Tarporley Studio or out on location such as nearby Delamere Forest.

The former Liverpool University student said: “I previously worked for the Local Authority but decided to take voluntary redundancy to turn what was a hobby into a career.

“I won a competition in 2010 which was a landscape photograph.

“Now I’ve received the news that I was award a Bronze Bar for a child portrait!”

The award has delighted Abi as she only started her company in October last year.

“I am passionate about capturing special moments with newborns and children.

“I have been interested in Photography for more than 10 years but only now that I have turned a passion of mine into a business.

“My dad is my inspiration for all things photography as he was a keen photographer himself when I was growing up.

“I always remember having a camera lens pointing in my face as a kid. Now it is the other way round and I am taking the photographs of him!”

Abigail’s business is already booming – and she hopes her national award will give her more exposure!

So now she is offering a free photoshoot to a local family, worth more than £100, in a Facebook competition.
