for years I have wanted to do a personal photography project – something completely unrelated to weddings and well…. personal. so several weeks ago while I was planning my trip to colorado I knew that I wanted to photograph 2 of my girlfriends specifically because I hadn’t in a long time. and then I thought of all of the other amazing women in my life and how cool it would be to photograph them as well. see when I was younger, I always thought I was a ‘guy’s girl’ and I was.. the majority of my close friends were and primarily have been men. but probably in the past 10 years I have come to realize the unconditional love and understanding that comes from close female friendships. caring for parents, juggling careers, day to day stresses and relationship dramas are things that we all ‘get’ about each other and bonds us together. so I started making a list and came up with 25 women who have enriched my life unmeasurably and who I want to capture forever. now my friends are many and varied.. some are t-shirt and jeans girls like me while others are pretty glam so I wanted there to be a common thread in all of the photos and the classic grey t-shirt seemed to fit what I was envisioning. so from now until december I am going to do my best to photograph everyone on the list… my girls are spread out all over the country so if they don’t come to me, I will go to them (good reason for some road trips!) and number one was completed a week ago! I am really excited about this because not only do I get to see all of them but also to photograph what makes them each so special and individually amazing….
