is like light coming in all directions toward you on the darkest day.
i use the term best friend lightly as i have been burned before. but today i am blessed to say that i have several. janie is one of them.
over the past several years i have photographed her, her kids, her husband: her family. my lens see what my heart sees: an artist, a mother, a lover of life and a person with the sweetest, most kind demeanor i have ever encountered. i am in the process of creating a “book of days” for her with images i’ve collected over the years that she has probably never seen. quite days, loud days, no makeup days, celebration days, family days, artistic days.
her smile has lifted me out of many troubled days. and her friendship has been a huge-huge blessing in my life.
here’s a sneak peak at some of these forgotten images for the book.
thanks for the treasured gift of your friendship over the years!
