For D’s 17th birthday, I gave her a best friend photoshoot! We knew that she was moving away for her senior year and since I had moved prior to my junior year, we were already living 2 hours away. I thought that pictures to frame of us together would be so meaningful. Although it was for her 17th birthday (which is in April), we didn’t end up taking the pictures until early summer. We spent the whole night before laughing and crying and talking about the year to come. We also planned and coordinated our outfits until 2 o’clock in the morning. Although she’s in Hawaii and I’m across the globe in North Carolina, we now have these pictures to remind us of how much fun we have when we are together. It also gives us something to look forward to when graduation will be our first reunion in a year apart.
If you’re trying to come up with a perfect gift for your best friend and you’re looking for something unique, this is truly so much fun! You can set up a photoshoot with a local photographer or simply have your mom or a friend take them. Here are some of my favorites that we took that day!
