Trish is one of my favorite friends and is a true beauty inside and out.  She is incredibly talented and has a number of ideas brewing for 2011.  Considering those, we decided to venture to an artsy part of Charlotte this week, to chat about her opportunities/plans and to snap a few pictures.  With that said, it can feel pretty awkward to pose in front of a camera — particularly without the comfort of your family around you — and Trish rocked it.  I kept teasing her that by the end of the day she’d be tossing all her plans aside and transitioning to some sort of modeling gig.  Needless to say, we giggled a bunch.  I’ll share more details once Trish officially unveils her business; in the meantime, hope you enjoy a few of her photos.

Trish is a fan of America’s Next Top Model, so when she started to feel awkward, I asked her what Tyra would do.  Trish immediately transitioned into a “fierce” look and then burst out laughing.  I loved catching her laughter.  I can hear it through these pictures as I look back at them now.

I hear that Trya says its “all about the eyes.”  I agree that the eyes do tell such a story — but, still, these next few photos warm my heart.  They remind me of Trish in deep laughter over something silly someone said, while scanning a menu during a girls night out, while reading a fun magazine during a weekend getaway, or while chatting it up with one of our kids.  I feel like I see this perspective of her a lot.  And oh how I love it just as much as I love her eyes.

We loved all of the different textures and colors around us.  We could barely soak it all in.  Doesn’t Trish look radiant in every setting?

I love you, my friend.  And I am so excited to see you soar in 2011.

PS Thanks, Trish, for taking a few pictures of me!

{guessing i had just quickly reconfigured my camera here?  looking pretty silly here, if you ask me :)}

anne - Ok well WOW!! Didn’t know this was happening but yet could feel it coming on obviously (more on the docket to discuss tomorrow night!).

These are awesome. To know Trish is to love trish, and yall together are just too much. I really feel such a support system here.

So my fave fave is Trish in front of the purple wall (and really like the b&w before, it’s so trish to me). The last B&W is pretty darn stunning-great look-tyra would be proud!!! and love the overhead shot too.

Made my night. Love these. Ok to be continued…!!!January 19, 2011 – 8:31 pm
