I was browsing in a cute Hampstead store the other day when I noticed a young woman with the most incredible hair and a winning smile. I watched her for a while and decided that I would love to photograph her. We chatted and I told her I was a photographer and she told me she was a singer and voila, we had arranged a shoot! We took the photos on the beautiful Hampstead Heath and Linah was absolutely brilliant to work with – so effervescent and energetic, with a 100 watt smile. Linah was thrilled with the pictures and so was I. I love the colours and intensity of her gaze in this picture.
