Photographer Samantha Hemsley and her team are thrilled to say that all the photo shoots are now complete for the Celebration of Women 2012 Calendar and production will begin very soon. It has to be said the results are amazing and there is a huge buzz of excitement & anticipation to see the finished product!

The calendar is being produced to celebrate the lives of women aged 50 and over, to remember those we’ve lost through cancer, and through the sales of the calendar, raise money to help those currently suffering with the disease. It will be launched at a very special dinner on Saturday, November 12th which will raise additional funds & awareness for the cause.

The project is attracting a great deal of interest both here in Mallorca and in the UK,  and will feature in the special Gold 50th issue of acbMallorca due out in early September.

It is a great initiative for a great cause with some excellent sponsorship opportunities available for both the calendar and the launch event. For more details please email denise@espmedia.eu or call 626 079 080.

Diane Foden is the first of twelve models to be photographed by Samantha Hemsley Photography for  Celebration of Women 2012 Calendar in support of the fight against Cancer. Sam is creating the calendar to celebrate the lives of women aged 50 and over and to remember those we’ve lost. Her aim is to create a series of photographs that reflect the personalities of the models with a hint of fifties glamour. Think ‘Calendar Girls’ the film, with a twist.

The sales of the calendar will raise money to help those currently suffering with the disease and their families here in Mallorca. Charities who need support include Project Micky, Dime and AECC (Asociacion Española Contra El Cancer).

The calendar is due to be launched at a very special dinner in early November.

Diane has written a wonderful account of her day for her blog  two crumblies and a cat
