I just wanted to shout out my utter excitement….
I’m off to Amsterdam today for my first photo shoot abroad…ever!! I know this doesn’t seem like much to most people, but this is something I have wanted to do in YEARS! But due to health issues, it has been something have been unable to achieve.
So today I will have finally succeeded in doing something I’ve desperately wanted to do in so long! Hopefully I can start to plan lots more 🙂
Oooh, and to top it all off – next week I will have been free from major seizures for 3 months!!
Crikey! I haven’t written on here for a little while (naughty!) But I do actually have an excuse this time!
Over the last few months I’ve had to cut right back on modelling due to ill health. It’s been so unbelievably frustrating! I guess I just haven’t had much to write home about for a while!!
I would like to thank everyone who showed their support for me throughout the last few months. The lovely messages and positive emails I had received in this time really touched me. I was was utterly overwhelmed. Without sounding too soppy, your kindness and support really helped me to get back on track. I am also very grateful for everyone’s ongoing support whilst I get going again with modelling.
But anyway… I’m better now and I’m back! Mwahahaha!
Throughout my time off, I have been involved in a very exciting project with photographer, Matt Thompson, that has now, after a period of 18 months, been completed – Hurrah! This project, called Helen’s Story, documents one year of my life & what it’s like to live with epilepsy. To tell the story, a series of photographic portraits by Matt are accompanied by extracts from my personal diary.
Now the images and writing for Helen’s Story is all completed, we’re going through the exciting process of getting coverage, funding, sorting exhibitions…etc.etc. The feedback we have received so far has been phenomenal. So lovely to hear, especially since this project required so much blood, sweat and tears to accomplish. I shall be divulging more into this on my blog very soon… so watch this space!
