This is Marion Botella, a brilliant Newcastle-based product photographer and I’ve had the pleasure of being her coach this year to assist in building her business confidence.

Marion specialises in bespoke creative and original visuals for businesses and offers product photography, food photography, branding sessions and styling services to help businesses to stand out through expert set designs, new ideas, and creative perspective.

Coaching has helped Marion increase her self-confidence as a business owner, especially after coming back from maternity leave .

She said: “Sam helped me stay focused and hold myself accountable when I wasn’t managing to get to the bottom of my very long to-do list. She also helped me refocus on my self-worth and value, both as a person and a business as covid plus coming back from maternity leave had left quite an impact on me”.
