Tribe (a group of individuals who are connected together like family), this friend photoshoot represented just that. I was so excited to run into Kelsey Spradlin at Homegoods on a rainy afternoon. We chatted about a longtime vision she had of doing a photoshoot with seven of her very best girlfriends, I immediately agreed and hoped they would get back to me. I wanted to capture their story and most of all their friendship. How have they have maintained their friendship despite life hurdles, babies, marriage, and let’s be honest, it is hard to be friends with other women sometimes in a world of competitiveness and jealousy.
These ladies however are an example of how you can have a several best girlfriends & the importance of having a tribe to support you always. How many women can say they have eight best friends? I found it so admirable. I enjoyed spending time with these ladies, one thing I noticed during our photoshoot is how quick they all were to encourage each other and have fun together. The true recipe to an everlasting friendship! A special thank you girls for allowing me to tell your story, I will end this post with some amazing advice from Kelsey regarding their everlasting friendship…Enjoy some highlights below!
“We really do love each other and we all know that it is rare in today’s culture. We have had our share of drama throughout the years (we died laughing over some of it at lunch) but we are all committed to always talk it out, no matter how uncomfortable”- Kelsey
