I was thrilled when this month's WI Life came through my letterbox last week to see my portrait of the fabulous Laura had made the cover - particularly as Tamara from earlier on this year had been knocked off the top spot by Gary Barlow!
It was a couple of months ago that I meet Laura and the rest of her WW2 re-enactors at Frogmill Paper Mill in Hemel Hempstead. It was a glorious day and their 1938 Dennis Ace Fire Engine, which they take to steam rallies and 1940's weekends, was positively beaming in the bright sun - as was Laura! A complete natural in front of the camera, we had such fun capturing a variety of different portraits across the different locations that the Mill had to offer.
And it's wonderful to see the pictures and the words come together in the final article. I always like to play the guessing game about which images are used and love the ones WI Life chose - though the ones against the green peeling paint wall are still a personal fav!
