Photo Lady Friends

I have been debating if I want to share these images and thoughts here. These photos and this weekend of photography was specifically for me. There was no client involved, wasn’t hired to be there. I could pick up my camera or not. I could use my iPhone or my polaroid camera, or not. I could just sit and soak up the conversations happening around me and listen to the wind (which, by the way, holds secrets if you listen closely enough). I could speak and have space held for my words and reminded that I am okay and worthy. PhotoLadyFriends_FIP (1 of 38)

The point of the trip was to refuel, to reconnect and to re-imagine all that I am and all that I can be (as an artist, as a mother, as a wife, as a friend).  Part of me wants to hold these moments and images close and not share. Because so much of what was shared is hard to explain, but then again maybe my photos can do the talking for me like they do so many other times. These women have traveled an amazing journey with me for several years via the magic of the internet. And now they are powerful forces in my world. I am honored to call them friends.

Find your tribe. Love them hard.- Danielle LaPorte

    I love how you see things. I also love how I have photos of these very same things, but from a different perspective; I have one of you taking that photo with the other three ladies on the couch. Wonderful photos and your words ring so true with me. I just want to hold you all inside right now. xooxo
