I met Gloria through Garrett and Tanya. She’s been a friend of theirs for years and after crossing paths at various bbq’s over time, the polite conversation turned into something more. We started sharing about who we are, our hopes and dreams, about our creative sides and where we find our inspiration.
We don’t get together all that often but when we do I always leave feeling inspired and charged. Gloria is an interior designer which not only means that she has great taste but she has the best things. A huge ball that weighs a ton and just sits in a corner looking cool. A bowl full of old leather balls that are a faded red in color and fabulous, a collection of vintage bowling pins and an old beautiful wood carved door that is just perched against a wall in her living room to name a few.
Gloria recently found herself in need of some photographs, this time not of the interiors that she’s decorated but of herself. She’s in the process of revamping her website, her brand and herself and I was beyond flattered when she asked if I would be the one to take her photograph. I went to her home and after a little warm up session inside, we descended into her lovely garden. I absolutely love these photographs. I feel like her spirit just shines through.
Pure, lovely, beautiful.
