A BARNSLEY photographer has scooped a highly coveted award from a top businesswoman.

Adele Haywood, owner of Blue Lights Photography, received the news that she had been named as one of Jacqueline Gold’s three #WOW Award winners.

Jacqueline, the CEO of Ann Summers and Knickerbox, is a passionate supporter of women in business and each Wednesday invites female business owners to tweet her using the #WOW hashtag along with a short overview of their business.

She then chooses her favourite three to become #WOW (Women on Wednesday) winners.

Adele did just that - tweeting about Blue Lights Photography and included a newborn baby picture.

Adele said: "I’m still in shock - this was the first time I had entered and I cannot believe that I am a #WOW business winner.

"This has given me ever more drive to continue the work and passion I have for Blue Lights Photography."
