Frolic

Some artists possess a talent to remind you that life is not four walls or a grey cube, that it is a vast delicious landscape waiting to be discovered, calling to you in the deepest corners of your dreams at night.

Jasmine Fitzwilliam is one of those. From the moment I met her, that fire was clear. And contagious. (She also has the best hair ever. If I had curls like hers, I’d play with them all day.)

There is a reverence and awe in her photographs. And a sense of whimsy and fun and danger.

It’s easy to find yourself slipping into the scenes she’s captured, whether it’s a long weekend in Palm Springs with friends or a trek into the desert to let the stillness overtake you or a walk in the woods as the afternoon sun is sliding down.

Even in the moments of real life, there is beauty, and I so admire those who can capture it in images like Jasmine can. She tells stories. And the world desperately needs more storytellers like her.

Do you tell your stories with pictures or word? Or maybe a combination of both?

  1. Oh, Brandi. I am so overwhelmed by this. You are so utterly sweet to feature me, but your words truly make my heart aflutter. I’ve never been the greatest at accepting compliments, but you have a way of sweeping self-doubt out the door. Thank you for seeing my work as you do and understanding in depth the things that matter to me—all the in-between moments and magic hidden in overlooked places… they matter. There is even magic concealed within heavily-seen places. These are stories that I can’t help but believe must be told. The fact that you value these things, too, is truly a joy to me. Thank you oh-so much.

    As always, your celebration of storytelling is forever an inspiration. Let’s frolic together, hmmm?
