I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling really inspired lately. Maybe it was the beautiful autumnal light and colours we had here in Sweden, or maybe it was because I got to photograph exactly what I wanted and the way I wanted to photograph it.
A while back someone said that I should start a personal photography project. At the time, I already had what I thought (still think, actually) was a great idea. That idea, however, would involve me moving back to Ireland for a couple of months at least. For now, that’s not really possible, so I thought I should create my own projects here in Sweden. And whaddya know, I started three projects last month! Look, I’m an all-or-nothing kind of gal :). There’s no half measures here!
So, here it is: my second personal portrait project: You’ve Got a Friend
This project has been inspired by my two daughters and our family dog, an extremely (I think you’ll agree) photogenic two year old Tibetan Terrier. The girls absolutely adore him. It got me thinking about how, when you have a pet, you always have a friend. Someone who’ll be there for you through the good times and the bad, who will give you a happy greeting as soon as you get home, no matter how hangry you might be, and who will warm your feet when your husband isn’t there to do it.
I hope to be posting more from this series in the coming months, so please stay tuned.
