Mark, who owns the Emmott Arms, asked for a full range of images. This was to include food photography, and also interior and exterior images.

I was asked to visit a young lady by the name of Kathryn Whitehill, in Heswall, Wirral who needed some food photography.

A lovely lady, and her site is a good resource for home cooking recipes.
