We first had the idea to photograph England's Lionesses after seeing them on Wimbledon's Centre Court in 2015, when they returned from the World Cup. 

We finally got to photograph them last week at St George's Park, where they posed for us on the indoor pitch as they prepare for the Euros in Holland, where they open their campaign against Scotland on Wednesday. 

So it's taken hundreds of emails and two years to organise! They all enjoyed the chance to dress up and it was their idea to be photographed in the elegant black dresses.
