July 12 News

 

Hello and welcome to my July ’12 news where we will hop back to see what was happening in January. In our house, Coronation Street is the one programme we both adore, so when Fabulous magazine commissioned me to photograph Jodie Pregner in the Rovers Return, I jumped at the chance.  Jodie starred in the ‘Street of Dreams’ musical, which seems to have hit rocky ground.  Such a shame as Jodie was so excited about it.

Onto a very inspiring lady now for Prima magazine – Shirley Ellis worked in her local library for 44 years and was awarded an MBE for her services.  When the council threatened closure she headed a campaign to save the library which is now staffed by volunteers.

A lovely shoot for Woman magazine about Sue who has had a face lift.  I’m not usually a fan of the face lift look, but I thought Sue looked fantastic and very natural.  I spent the next few days pulling up my forehead and ears and making faces in the mirror.

Another fab shoot for Woman with Claire, who has beaten depression.  She talked openly about the experience making her into a better person.

I love these ‘In the Closet’ shoots for S magazine.  This time we featured Chelsee Healey who was fresh out of Strictly Come Dancing.  Chelsee was a joy to photograph and had some wonderful outfits to choose from.
