When Alicia won my Instagram giveaway this summer, I was so excited! One of the first things she told me was that she wanted to do a couple’s session with her boyfriend at their home. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but hadn’t yet found a couple to do it with.
I tell stories. The images I take tell the story of the people in them. So being able to go to the place where they spend most of their time together is the best way to tell their story. Everything about their home means something to them.
Alicia and Alex are both university students working their way through law school. They spend a lot of time at home studying, so it made so much sense to capture them doing that together. Years from now they will probably live in a new home and be working in jobs. They can look back at these photos to remember this time in their life.
No it’s not glamorous, but it’s their life. These images show their connection and their love.
No matter where I take a couple to photograph them, I am looking for their connection. I want to see them forget that I’m there and just focus on each other. When you strip away all the outside distractions, the fancy location, the weather, the people, the whole world, you can see two people and their love for each other.
Alicia said, “It was fun to get photos done in our home! We are at such a busy time in our lives, both being in law school and recently moving into our new home. We are both so happy to have some pictures of just everyday life that we can look back on of this time.”
