It has taken me a few days to come down from the high of being with the girls at the Girly Show. It reminds me of how I felt as a child coming home from Summer camp when all I wanted to do was reminisce through all my pictures and pick up a pen and paper to write all of the new friends I had just made. Remember those days? Well, fast forward 15 years and I am still that giddy young girl.

Walking into the gallery, before the rush of people arrived, I felt this overwhelming sense of energy and good vibrations. The gallery itself was funky with its colors and architecture and then to see the gorgeous art hanging all around was almost too much lusciousness to handle!

We all agreed how amazing it was that their art together had a seamless flow about it. The palettes, the themes, the compositions, the emotions, all resonated with one another so it wasn't an awkward transition from one wall to the next. Being in the midst of so much talent left me breathless at times as I witnessed pieces of their souls painted on canvas.

I've corresponded with a few of these women for quite a while but this was my first time meeting them all as a whole. Each of them are fantastic, beautiful, unique, outrageously loving and kind. I just wanted to wrap them up and take them home with me! I was lucky enough to catch each of them before the rush, so that I could connect with them and their significant others on a deeper level.

It was a challenge at first to tear myself away from them and hide behind the lens to capture their evening but once the admiring crowds arrived, it was natural for me to retreat and observe. I was so grateful for this opportunity to work with them.

It's difficult to find the words to describe the next four hours of bliss. So, I will leave you with a link to my online album where you can capture the mood and feel as though you were there if you didn't get the chance to go.

What amazing pictures in such a challenging situation for photographs (lighting wise). Even though the lighting was focused on the art-leaving a lot of dark areas you managed to make it work beautifully.

Your talent is such a gift.

I am thrilled you got to experience that night and in turn let us experience it through your photos.

The work looks luscious.

Love you baby.
