Autumn at last and we can all snuggle back into cosy woollies and boots.  I love this time of year and shooting outside with the strong Autumn colours is a joy – that is when I’m not having to pretend it’s Spring already!  We shall be enjoying our last caravanning trip of the year this weekend to Robin Hoods Bay – some say it may snow.  More worrying is the need to keep a very active three year old entertained in a confined space.  I’ve already compiled a detailed three page list of ‘things to do if it rains (snows -eek) ‘ so fingers crossed….

Jumping back to April now, where we start with a shoot for Grazia about ‘Anxiety in Modern Life’.  Ashley told me how losing her high powered job in finance management, triggered crippling anxiety that left her barely able to function.  She managed to turn her life around after using the Linden method and is now very much back in control.

A lovely shoot for Prima magazine, featuring Marie, who used social media to turn her life around.  Marie is a working, single mum who wanted to get out more and meet new friends so joined City Socialising’.  As you can see – it seems to have worked!

I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle and her daughter Hannah, for a feature on autism for Femail.  Michelle has a lovely family and doesn’t want autism to define her daughter.  Autism is traditionally seen as a condition that affects boys, but new findings suggest that girls go undiagnosed because they find it easier to learn social skills that hide the signs of autism.  This can mean undiagnosed girls growing up and having nothing to explain why they feel different.

Lastly, I enjoyed a very interesting day photographing three debates for Candis magazine.  One of which was ‘What does it mean to be British today’?.  The positive suggestions included: our charitableness, ethnic diversity, civil rights, the architecture, the Royal Family, our variety of food, accents and landscapes, popular culture and our sporting success.  We hear a lot about how Britain is going downhill, but here at least are 10 reasons to be proud.

Enjoy your Halloween.
