Making friends through blogging.
What a special thing. Especially when it involves a friend who shares your passion for photo styling, taking photos of all the little things that make you smile and let’s not forget family.
Who knew that when I started this little online world of mine over four years ago that I would find myself with a friend as lovely and supportive as Jenny. There’s a group of you actually – men and women that I talk to on a daily and weekly basis. Whether its on Instagram through the square windows, in a WhatsApp group, Facebook or in the comments on my blog. You all inspire me to be a better version of me, offer advice, laugh and cry with me, support and encourage me to be more creative. You are the best.
You are friends that I never thought I would find. In an online world that can sometimes be a little poisonous, thankfully I have carved out friendships over the last few years that will hopefully stand the test of time. Jenny being one of those.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood. Finding Jenny and becoming closer over the years has been a true pleasure. On days where I’m losing my creative flare I can turn to her for advice on a image. When I’m struggling with an angle for a shot she just knows, and when quite frankly I need a little moan because something hasn’t quite worked she’s such a good friend. She’s a good listener.
We both share a love for photo styling and fashion photography so we’ve got ourselves into a bit of a routine. Every few months we clear the diary and spend a few hours together and snap away. Create content for Instagram, our Blogs, for each other, to make us smile and of course for you. Sometimes you just need to get into the car, drive 60 miles and make your thoughts come to life. A little me time amidst busy schedules.
Somedays you just need to take pictures of coffee cups, macaroons, flowers, pinks coats and so much more. To mess around with Lucy’s backdrops and generally do the things you love. Because somedays being an adult is tough and whilst I can’t always escape and wouldn’t want to, somedays it’s nice to let the creative side of me shine.
