GOL shoot 1 - Doug and Julia

Last week I hopped on the train to Letchworth in Hertfordshire where I was met by Doug and Julia - my first couple for the Gifts of Life project. Doug gave Julia a kidney a few years ago, after she suffered from polycystic kidney disease. She is now is feeling a whole lot better due to Doug's generous gift.

The sun was shining, there was Banoffee cheesecake and a cute little tortious called Arnie... A lovely shoot with fab people.

Here are a couple of shots (unedited as always) from the day. I won't be posting up the ones I am planning to use in the exhibition or the book...you'll have to wait for those!

You can view these photos on here and here on my Flickr page where the colours look slightly better.


  1. You said Julie gave Doug a kidney, but then say she had a disease & is feeling better from his donation.

    ...I'm confused.

  2. Hi Janet

    Thanks for spotting the mistake! Glad someone is on the ball ;)
    The post has now been changed.

    Thanks again :)
