bright eyes











I took these images in Perth of my (almost) sister Ashlin and her best friend Ella. I first saw Ella 3 years ago while picking Ashlin up from school. I asked Ashlin if she could become her friend so I could photograph her and Ashlin said “maybe…” in that shy way she does. I remember she was holding my hand and we were so proud to have each other.

The second time I saw Ella was when I went to watch Ashlin in her ballet recital. Ella was like a star exploding in the dark theatre.

The next day we were eating ice cream together at the beach, running in shallow water and taking pictures.

    p.s. a few nights ago, with a fragile heart, I wrote down some of my deepest and darkest emotions. inspired by your last blog post, I felt the courage to share it on my blog. although it may not seem like a big deal, sharing parts of my life – the ugly and sad bits – has made me feel more at peace with it. so I thank you. x
