November 12 News

 

Hello and welcome to my November 12 news. I’m so relieved that all my shoots have been indoors this November, no cold toes, no dripping nose and no frozen fingers (as yet anyway – you’re probably all waiting for December – eek!).  November has been a busy month for me photographing stolen husbands, a gastric band family, Hollyoaks actresses and babies who can read, but last May (on a lovely warm Spring day), I met Kate Lambert and her daughter Lille for an S Magazine shoot.  Lille was diagnosed with epilepsy two years ago and Kate went on to write a book aimed at children ‘Can I tell you about Epilepsy?’

The title of this next shoot for Grazia is quite shocking – ‘I’ve made £20,000 from rinsing men’!.  Holly Henderson, who featured in channel 4’s ‘The Rise of the Rinsers’, uses social media to strike up friendships with men who then shower her with gifts!  Holly was quite jittery as she had been receiving death threats since the programme aired, however she really switched it on for the camera and was a pleasure to work with.

November 12 news - magazine shoot

I really enjoyed meeting Caroline and her husband Tony for an S Magazine shoot.  Caroline has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s’s since 2009.  To be honest, I was expecting a difficult shoot but I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Caroline entertained me with stories from her high flying career and her current activities with a local choir and rambling group.  Tony is a lovely patient and caring man and they clearly enjoy their lives together (plus there were chocolate biscuits on offer!)

That’s all for now, enjoy your weekend.  Claire xx
