Several years, this amazing soul - Marcy Browe of Marcy Browe Photography and I were connected through a facebook group called Tuesday's Together. I wanted to do a trade with another photographer for portraits, as did she, we connected and immediately started making magic.
Back in 2017, it was the first time I had really had a photo shoot of myself. She, made it feel so effortless, the results - exactly what I wanted. Every year since then, we do this very thing. She documents me, I document her. Every year, the photo shoots become that much more special as they're more intentional, more empowering, more joyful, more of us really bringing out the best in one another. You see, we've become friends, really beautiful friends.
What is so special about this friendship is our shared passion. Although to some, this could be seen as a threat, to us, oh to us - it's so empowering, nourishing, inspiring. For each of us to share and expand our craft with one another, it just fuels our souls. We left this last photo shoot, the one you see here, with adrenaline running through our body and the biggest smiles on our faces. We genuinely played and genuinely had the greatest time!
After sending her gallery, she sent me a message, "Holy crap, you're my hero. I LOVE every photo you sent. How did you o that seemingly so effortlessly? I'm in awe. I appreciate you so much!! You brought my vision to life and made it look EASY. You're talent and a badass friend. Thank you!!!"
Marcy, thank you! Thank you for sharing your talent, your love, your journey and your inspiration. I am honored to document it each and every year! And friend, as you dive into these portraits, you can witness the variety of styled we did all in three hours. The more preparation and intention into your session, the greater the results!
