Stills with Mwende and Wambui

Urban Queens, Friendship Portraiture

A portrait of friendship

Both of these women are humans I dearly love. It recently happened to be Mwende's birthday, and because my economic situation isn't exactly what I'd call fluid at the moment, I reached out to her offering the one gift I can fully and confidently offer.

And so a date for a photo shoot was set. With just one request from her: "Can I invite Wambui? I really want to do a shoot with her before I leave." Deny you the chance to have an amazing time with your beloved, long-time friend? I would never!

There's a certain underrated beauty to genuine friendship that often goes unmentioned: The freedom to simply be yourself in each other's presence, and be absolutely comfortable with every aspect of yourselves. Just like what I'm about to show you.

Yes, the stories throughout this shoot were 🔥🔥🔥!

What's that? No! Never! I won't tell you what they were talking about here! Figure it out!

Look at them. Billboard ready.

Mwende & Wambui, thank you for allowing me into your space, and to capture some of the moments in your friendship. I loved every minute of it.
