    Hi Heather,
    I would love to have an opportunity to support your freelance journalism work with all things candles. Last year I took the huge step both professionally and for my family to create an online candle boutique- I am convinced I am not the only person who obsessively lights scented candles at every opportunity! Glimmer has received rave reviews from the first customers, creating awareness however is so difficult when you are competing against major high street retailers. What makes Glimmer different? A designated store for premium gift scented candles, created by passionate artisans creating a superior product. I have personally tested and handpicked candles from small manufacturers from the UK and around the world. I have some fabulous candles for Christmas 2016, and can proactively provide you with the perfect accent to compliment a set or article. Would you allow me to send you a press pack and product resume?

    Hello, my name is Emma Jones and I am a second year BA (Hons) Press and Editorial Photography student at Falmouth University. I am hoping to start a project entitled, ‘More Than One’, that focuses on the moment that parents to be found out they are expecting more than one child.

    I am reaching out to parents of twins, triplets or more and asking them to share their personal accounts of emotions they experienced when they first found out they were having more than one baby. I would like to share these accounts alongside an image of the baby scan you received when you found out it was more than one.

    I am hoping to post the photographs of the baby scan alongside the extended caption which will be your initial thoughts and instant reaction of both mother and father to be, whether these be negative or positive on an Instagram feed that I am creating under the hashtag #morethanone – Depending on how many people would like to be involved in the project, I may also make a small print publication to go alongside the Instagram feed.

    In your caption you can also include the names you choose for your babies which will be used as the individual title on your post. You are welcome to write as much or as little as you like.

    If you would like to be involved in my project, please email me a photograph of your baby scan alongside a word document containing your instant reaction to finding out you were expecting more than one baby and any more information you would like to include!
