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.
Gorgeous photos and sounds like just what you needed to spend the day with Jenny doing something you both enjoy and having a chat. I definitely need to meet up with some local bloggers now I’m back in the UK.
Aww thank you love, such a great way to spend a few hours
Oh babes just catching up on life and as I do work too and read this and you made me cry. Your words were so kind and so loving. I don’t think anyone gets what I do and my passions quite like you do my dear. I would do photoshoots with you endlessly if we lived closer and it’s worth the drive for sure. When baby boy gets older and I can venture further without needing to feed we can find a better routine again like we had. Loved this day and so many other days over the last four years with you!!!! xo
Aww Jenny you are so welcome, I’m so glad we have met and continued to be friends. And yes lets keep the momentum going, its lovely to just have a chat and of course take a photo or 150! x
Oh I so wished I lived near you two!!!! Love love love this post and adore how you use the backdrops xxx
Aww wouldn’t that be closer, although I think playdates in your cottage would be my preference x
That is such a lovely photo of the two of you! It sounds like you have so much fun together when you meet up. I’m so grateful to know both of you. Making friends is hard – my two best friends live in Southampton and London (each a three hour drive or train journey from me) so it can get pretty lonely sometimes. Thank you for taking me under your wing a little bit 🙂
Aww thank you Chloe, we definitely find time to giggle even if its at ourselves. And gosh feel free to let me know when you fancy a catch up x
I agree with Lucy!! I WISH I lived closer to you girls !! I loved meeting you in real life at Blogtacular last year; so nice to meet someone and realise that the connection you made online is just as strong, and true, in person xx
Aww wouldn’t that be lovely, next year we need to make more of an effort to see each other don’t we. And thank you for being so kind x
Oh I LOVE everything about this KA! You two ladies are stunning both inside and out – I’m so glad you found each other too 🙂 It’s a true gift. xx
Thank you lovely, every now and again you just need to step back and enjoy the little things x
