There are many things that we can do without; sisterhood is not one of them. Women need each other to confide in, to provide strength and seek guidance. Any woman who has faced a difficult season of life knows how invaluable that bond is. But sisterhood serves a bigger purpose than emotional comfort; we celebrate one another and toast to our milestones.
Shannon Griffin from Mi Amore Foto, was visiting Savannah with her long-time friends, Ashton and Sara, to celebrate Sara’s birthday (Sara is the blonde pictured). "When we arrived to the home that we rented, we immediately knew we had to do a shoot. I pulled out my film and we got to shooting!” Savannah is home to some of the most beautiful architecture on the east coast. Needles to say, inspiration was not lacking in this home. “We fell in love with its old charm. There were 15 foot ceilings and huge old windows with the prettiest light streaming through. I'm lucky that my two gorgeous friends were so willing to model for me.”
Shannon’s most memorable moment from this shoot was making her two close friends feel as beautiful as they are. "To have both of them get into it and really enjoy themselves… that's what it's all about.” As an artist, Shannon has found her purpose in making women feel confident and empowered. Who better to share this with than her closest friends. "We have shared so many laughs, tears, hard times, good times and love. We have so much fun any time you get the three of us together. This trip was especially great because we were celebrating another year in Sara's life and we got to be in a house full of our closest friends."
Once the shoot was done, the celebrating continued. "We, of course, ate some amazing southern food and danced the night away downtown. We even did a scavenger hunt around town. I wish we could do this for every birthday!” The result, an amazing memory, beautiful photographs and a tighter bond. Yes, sisterhood can exist in boudoir photography. Boudoir is not just something women do for their significant others. As Shannon put it, "I find a lot of times that these sessions end up being more about the woman I'm photographing than it is who she is doing it for."
