A portrait a week, every week, in 2013


—Hannah

To say I am thankful for this girl’s friendship is an understatement. Hannah and I met in junior infants, she had a little blond bob and I had curls that were so short they stuck to my little head. It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I first went to her house to play. We bonded over chocolate biscuit cake (her dad’s family recipe which I count myself lucky to now have) and polly pockets. I used to pull her hair into a high pony tail quoting ‘beauty is pain’ while she winced. She had a dolls house with an ironing board and a happy family.
We spent our teenage years chatting on the phone and hanging out by each others lockers in school. We have bitched about teachers, boyfriends and parents. And now we talk about life, marriage, travel, babies and the people we hope we will become. We spend time together in silence without it ever being awkward and are able to fight and make up like sisters. Thank you Hannah for being my best friend for almost 15 years. Let’s make sure we are still drinking champagne, watching watching trash TV and reading good books for the next 15 too. xo

  2. I dunno, there's something about your work. I scan the thumbnails for a few interesting images, each week yours always jumps out at me. I love the grain, the tender, natural expression. The light. Everything.

  3. I'm so happy I discovered your blog recently. I'm not quite sure how I stumbled across it, but I really, really enjoy browsing everything. As Erica said above, the texture and grain of the photos is wonderful. I actually just purchased my first toy/film camera, and films. I'm anxious and eager to begin, but I'm also nervous ... I'm putting high expectations on how that first roll will turn out. That said ... I enjoyed reading this. Old friends like that are fantastic, and they are not to be taken for granted. It's so wonderful to have someone who knows you in and out, who you've struggled and laughed with, loved and made memories with.
