We ❤ Charlotte

Charlotte photographed by Charlie Kaufman at the start of her journey as Miss England in 2012

 

Last Monday we had the honour of photographing Charlotte Holmes, Miss England 2012, at her last official shoot as title holder.

 

It has been an amazing year. Since winning the title last June, Charlotte went on to 8th place at Miss World(competing with 115 others), she featured at the Mauritius Carnival for Fiesta(Charlotte has Mauritian roots) and has raised a huge amount of money for charity.

 

Charlotte has achieved so much, but her journey to become Miss England really began back in 2009 when she visited Fresh Academy for Miss Fresh Photographic – our very own Miss England heat.

In 2009 she was crowned Miss Charity Queen, but missed out on the top spots to Rachel Christie and Kat Hodge. Undeterred, Charlotte went on to feature on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model 2010 and placed 4th in the competition. Needless to say she caught our attention – we simply love photographing models in the making! Having visited Fresh Academy for the fourth (or fifth?) time, Charlotte went on to claim the title of Miss Modelesque, and secured her place in the final of Miss England.

Third time lucky, Charlotte was crowned Miss England 2012! We love having Charlotte visit our studios, not only is she beautiful, she’s intelligent, gracious and has been a friend of Fresh for a long time… Who wouldn’t welcome her back?

 

One of her Fresh photoshoots as Miss England, photographed by Charlie Kaufman is currently featured on the cover of Professional Image Maker – a magazine for professional photographers, subscribed to by over 14,000 readers.

Congratulations on such a successful year Charlotte, we haven’t seen the last of you!
 
‘Be positive, smile, and never give up!’ 
Charlotte’s dream is to become a TV presenter – and by the looks of it, she certainly has a bright and Fresh future ahead of her!
