Julie moves through the world with such grace. I have to admit she’s my girl crush, and that her blog is hands down my favorite to read, of all time. We’re book buddies–A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and East of Eden are our two favorites. I have this feeling she gets me, even if our friendship grew mostly out reading the words each other put out on the world wide web.
She’s graduating from BYU this summer, and I just needed to capture her, as she is–doing the things she does, reading the books she loves, being in the places she’s always been.
Even though I love telling couples’ love stories, I’m just as adamant about documenting love for your own life, for your own self, independent of other people. Your life matters regardless of who you’re connected to or what’s on your ring fingers.
Right here on this blog, today, we’re celebrating that.
Your story deserves to be told.
She reads on the roof. Now, now, you can’t all girl crush at once…
This skirt is my dream come true. Ahhhhhhhh.
“I believe in going with the flow. I don’t believe in fighting against the flow. You ride on your river and you go with the tides and the flow. But it has to be your river, not someone else’s. Everyone has their own river, and you don’t need to swim, float, sail on theirs, but you need to be in your own river and you need to go with it. And I don’t believe in fighting the wind. You go and you fly with your wind. Let everyone else catch their own gusts of wind and let them fly with their own gusts of wind, and you go and you fly with yours.”-C. Joybell C.
The shot on the right is one of my favorite frames of all time. Ilovelightleaks.This shot on the right? Another all-time fave.
P.S. Can you tell which frames are film, and which are digital edited with VSCO film?
Film frames: Canonet QL 17, Portra 400.
Julie, you amaze me.
