Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.
This past weekend I got to spend some time in a couple of of my favorite parts of L.A. with a friend. Venice Beach and Santa Monica give me a feeling of having hit the reset button every. single. time. There’s something so laid back and enjoyable about hitting the streets in these areas and exploring everything on foot. My friend Jessica was in town from Wisconsin and it was our first time to meet in person after a couple of years of virtual friendship (we “met” through her Etsy shop). She’s even more awesome than I thought she’d be and is so genuine. It was a fantastic day, just hanging out and exploring these beach towns while shopping, drinking fabulous coffee and talking about our businesses. I definitely felt like I’d hit the reset button by the time Monday rolled back around, which I’ve come to learn is so important.
Mary of Moe-Digger Photography and I became friends in college after we realized how much we had in common. We each grew up with three brothers, played sports and studied history, languages and cultures. I still remember our SLR cameras and our love for shooting with film. We have shared many wonderful experiences together over the years and have supported each other through some of the most significant moments in our adult lives. I am excited to take on this project with her. Check out Mary’s Perfect Timing photo for this week, too: Fresh Flowers.
