"Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." - Mark Twain

If ole Mark is right (and I think he is), Cassy Berry is one of the truly great. She is both an incredible fine artist and a heart-swelling wedding photographer. Her work exists on a whole 'nother level, yet she has the ability to make me feel more capable and creative in everything we do together.

A few days before I came out East, we ventured around our little hometown of Eugene, Oregon.  When she sent these photos to me, I couldn't help but smile thinking back a few years to the first time Cassy and I had coffee.  I must have exclaimed "me too!!" a dozen times. And we've been half-explorer, half-homebody, sensitive soul sisters ever since. 

Moving has made friendship sometimes feel both complicated and elusive. These photos are a good reminder of just how instantaneous connection can be.

  4. Beautiful. The last one is my favorite. I think it is extra special to have a close friend take a photograph of you because when you look back at that photograph after months have passed you are reminded of that friendship.
