Every now and then a tremendous person walks in your life and you wonder why it took them so long to get there. I've never found the answer to that question other than God's timing...but I'm always glad it finally happened. This family is one of "those". Instantly I felt like I had known them for years. Turns out, we are connected by a couple of different circles of people. So cool when that "small world" thing happens, isn't it?
Driving to their house, they have a LOOOOOOOONG driveway that happens to be one lane. When I say long driveway, I mean, I've never visited a home (ever) with a driveway this long. So secluded and perfect.
Here's what we did in the land of the lost.....the grand baby and the sweet engaged couple. Looking forward to the next encounter in neverland. :)
I love photographing young couples in love. The engagement period is a bliss filled time where couples are just...well...all over each other. ha! Mushy, smushy lovin'. It's fun to watch and makes for amazing images.
My hope is simply this...after they are married for 4 years, 8 years, 10 years......and life becomes normal and mundane....when they look back on this session, I hope it will cause them to remember why they fell in love with one another in the beginning.
That's a nice thought to close with for now.
The goat kind of kid, that is!
I just have to say, if you love your farm animals and would like to have them photographed....as long as you promise to not let them eat me, I would LOVE to come photograph them for you! Just bringing a little bit of the outdoors into your interior designing efforts. I wish I could show you the wall collection we designed from this shoot. I can't wait to see them all in print!
I forget how precious people in love are...as in...new love....fresh and unscathed. The engagement period. Brand new "giddy" love is refreshing and inspiring to be around. It always helps me remember where my relationship with my husband started and brings back memories of how exciting that period of time was. It's a can't-miss when the couple is as sweet and lovely as these two are.
My circles are those that have been married for several years. They've found love, roughed it up, smacked it around, and now tow a delicate line of shaping, molding and refining what walking that out looks like after years and years of realizing it's worth hanging on to. It's precious in a very "different" way.
We wish many years of enjoyment in figuring it all out to Amy and Ben!
