Penny's always been freelance. First as a photographer's assistant, learning the ropes, making connections - and then as a photographer herself.
We chat about when working for free has made a difference (and still can) and how being freelance has actually made being a mum easier (not sure it's ever easy!).
Despite a busy work-life schedule Penny seems really balanced. Maybe that's embracing work into your life. Or maybe instead of looking at work life balance on a daily or weekly basis, we should think are we balanced across the year?
