Besties, BFF’s, whatever you like to call them, I’m pretty sure we all have someone in this world who ‘gets’ us, who we can be ourselves around, goof off with and it can feel like they have known us forever!
I’m pretty lucky, my husband Chris is my bestie, but I also have a girl friend that lives at the other end of the county who is also my bestie! We have known each other since we were eleven and although we don’t see each other very often we seem to just pick up where we left off… good friends are like that.
In our line of work we photograph a lot of people for many various reasons – but some of my favourite shoots are of people (and groups of people) who really know each other, who are comfortable in each other’s presence and want to capture that. Sometimes these people are related, sometimes they are BFF’s, sometimes they are married (or are in the process of getting married!) and are head over heals in love with each other…
With the current technologies in our smart phones the selfie has evolved… we take selfies of ourselves and selfies with our besties (‘blue steel’, ‘duck lips’… arghh lets not go there!). Now more than ever we are photographing ourselves. But selfies are never going to be a classic – they’re a snap shot!
