Friend Family Project

I’m Libby and I’m documenting groups of friends stemming from the DIY/underground scenes of the Midwest. Inspired by my own friendships that have lasted for years and years, I’d like to capture meaningful groups of friends as they exist.

Images will be in black and white but I may utilize color as well. I might eventually create a zine or book with the images, but they’re mostly just for enjoyment and posterity! Images are free for personal use and each session is complimentary.

I want people to come and laugh with their friends and be comfortable. Donations for gas are welcomed but not required. All spaces utilized for the photo shoots are safe, and any and all requests will be honored in terms of atmosphere of shoot or intentions for images. Reach out anytime: libby@orangeblossomkc.com.

**Although I’m utlizing stuff from my business Orange Blossom Photography for organization, I see this as a stand alone series project by me: Libby Zanders rocker/friend/documentarian based out of Kansas City, Kansas just across the state line <3 Photo by WRM
