"Photography can mean so many things and I love that about it. Every person I photograph can take what a session with me will be like in a different way. Will it be awkward? Will I turn into Americas Top Model? Will I work the camera? I think there is this big stigma around photography and how awkward it can be especially. I love photography because I get to show my clients a different side to photography. The side of it being able to connect you both back together in a way that people never would think it could. It is not just pictures; it's reconnecting with your person."
We strive for connection. The human body needs it. In the cold we desire to be held. When you love someone you desire their soft touches. In my sessions I want the the two of them to forget I am there. A big black box shaped object in their face brings nothing but stiffness. I love to re-direct their attention to one another. The connection they feel is what I want them to remember not the big black object in their face. When you leave a session you want to remember the smell, the weather, your surroundings, and how your partner felt. You want to remember their touch and how they felt. This session we had to wake up at five in the morning and bare with the thirty degree weather and I would do it all over again. I stived to bring out the love they had for eachother; the giddy, and I am so in love with you kinda love. You seek connection and that is all I want to find in any session with my couples. What made you fall in love with them? Their touch, their smile, the way they look at you; let’s bring it back to that. The connection matters most. And the connection is what I felt through them.
