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!)
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!
