Oh such a sad little blog – I should put a bird on it 🙂 No really I have been neglecting it – we will have a new one soon so my attentions have been elsewhere.  Recently my friend Jennifer Armstrong opened up her Island and home for a group of 9 women who all share photography as a life passion to gather together and just be. It was really a very wonderful weekend.  The sun shone and we were all inspired by what was around us and who we were with.  I find even when in beautiful surroundings I am always attracted to the beauty of the people who are present.  In the first of many posts on this weekend I am focusing on Jen’s sweet little darlin’ Tess and my new good friend Jesse who just seemes to be kindred spirits from their first meet.  So here is a little of Jess and Tess.

    oh, emmy. I’m just LOVING these. They are kindred spirits aren’t they, jesse & tess? That was so sweet to witness & so lovely to see reflected here. Thank you! LOVE the boot shots & your b&w series is divine.

    I think we should start calling them Jesse and Tesse. And Jen, you know a good babysitter when you see one! 😉
    These are lovely, Emmy!

    These are lovely pictures Emmy – I I wouldn’t have thought about pulling out a mini theme like that (Jesse & Tess). It’s a great idea and something I’m going to use when I’m putting together gift photo books or albums for my family after I visit them in the UK this summer….and of course I’ll be putting a bird on cover!!

    Can’t wait to see more!
