Photographer’s Circle: Friendship

Gigi's Joy Photography: Friendship 2These girls. Friends since the first day of Kindergarten – now starting third grade apart. When we moved several months ago, this friendship, and many others, were what made me saddest to leave. I’m so thankful for our friends who have made the long drive to see our new place, and allow moments like these to happen.

Our theme this month for my Photography Circle is Friendship, and September is the perfect time to celebrate it. My daughter learned how to make friendship bracelets this summer, thanks to my college-aged niece. I never learned anything beyond a braid, so she had the perfect, patient teacher.

This kind is her specialty, here’s a great tutorial: Lots of Knots Friendship Bracelet. When we finalized plans for a visit, she got right to work.

The girls had a glorious afternoon together after several months apart. Before they parted, the friendship bracelet was ceremoniously tied on.

The pictures are over a month old, so now the bracelets are worn, dirty, and faded. But this Friendship? It’s going to be going strong for quite some time.
