During our lifetime we make a lot of friends, some stay a little while, others longer. But there is always one or two that are ‘forever friends’. Claire, the lovely lady in these images is one of my forever friends and it was a pleasure to photograph her this weekend. She has been working in Christchurch this last week and called in to see us on her way back to Hamilton. Amazingly she said she didn’t feel many of the shakes down there during her stay. I guess some people just aren’t tuned into to them.
Claire’s hair was in a style that she particularly wanted for this photoshoot. She has a ‘big’ birthday coming up soon and wanted a photo of how her hair might have looked if she was this age in the year she was born. She asked me late Saturday afternoon if I could find a hairdresser willing to work on Sunday morning – a long shot but she thought she would ask. As it happened she was extremely lucky and her hair was done by Fiona Knapman. Not only did Fiona say yes to our request but she was on our doorstep at 9am and this after being up all night with a sick child! Now thats service!
So the photos got taken and Claire has caught yet another plane home to Hamilton. We might not see each other for another six months or so but we remain (and always will do) forever friends.
