13 Treasured Friendships | Raleigh Cary Portrait Photography

It all started with a request for a group portrait.  A portrait to celebrate thirteen beautiful friendships, and their upcoming life changes.

I casually suggested why not make it more of a celebration with mini-makeovers and magazine style portraits for everyone!

And that’s what we did.

Each brought something unique and beautiful to my lens (and a lot of laughter as well!)

Beauty everywhere!


Above are twelve gorgeous friends, and the thirteenth I spotlight as she was the guest of honor.  She is moving overseas for a year, and will be greatly missed!

Today is also her birthday – happy happy birthday Ellie!


I managed to stitch together a tulle skirt the day before the shoot, and we spent maybe five minutes photographing her in it.

This image is all you Ellie, & all of your brilliance that shines!


I consider myself very lucky to have witnessed the reality of thirteen women who love & support each other.

AND gather at least once per month!


And one last image to close out this post, with a quote I found online …

At the shrine of friendship never say die, let the wine of friendship never run dry. – Les Miserables, Drink With Me.

(For photogs and those interested .. on camera flash low power, ISO 3200 f/6.3  1/200th.  It was basically dark out!)


Thank you ALL for bringing your sparkle & shine to this day I will not forget!
