Brenda

May 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

One Saturday several weeks ago I spent some time photographing three lovely, unique young women.  Their styles, tastes, and personalities are all radically, beautifully different…which is part of what I loved most about photographing each of them.  They're all friends, though very different, and it was fun to see them celebrate and appreciate each other's differences.  In friendship, we often look for those who are like us, and that's natural and good, but when we can enjoy the ways that others are quite different from us, we begin to scratch the surface of true friendship.

We spent the afternoon drinking iced coffee and doing what girls do best…chattering and bonding and connecting, while the ridiculously talented Janelle styled their hair and highlighted their natural beauty with her makeup skills.  

I'll introduce the others in a few days; today you get to meet Brenda.

Brenda is just 100% Brenda.  She's so comfortable in her own skin, and it radiates in the way she carries herself with a sort of restful and laid back  quiet confidence.  Few things are more inviting than someone who has embraced the shape of their own soul and simply occupies who they're created to be.  Brenda does that without even realizing it.  She simply is who she is.  Being around her gives you the intangible gift of exhaling and being YOUR self, even if it's entirely different from her.

Fun fact about Brenda:  She adores Paris.  She traveled to the city of love a couple of years ago, and when I asked her about it, her eyes promptly lit up, and she proceeded to whisk the entire room away on a magic carpet with tales of the romance of the city.  I'm now dying to go and experience it for myself. ;)

Brenda, who you are is such a gift to those around you.  Thanks for the privilege of allowing me to take your photograph.  You are simply lovely.

Thanks to Blythe Amber Photography for joining the fun and assisting for the day!
