“I really wanted to do something special for our 5 year wedding anniversary! I get so excited when I’ve had couples ask to do this session with me so I decided I really wanted this for me as well- however busy schedule, being over weight and thinking i wasn’t in the “shape” i wanted to be in for this session is what put me off on doing it when I should have (doesn’t everyone think that though) – (ps i’m ok with you sharing that info) It was this year that I was thinking I need to do this- shame on me for NOT making memories of us and celebrating who we are today- even if it’s not the physical shape I want to be in – it’s still me and would I want to look back 10, 20, 30 years from now and not remember these moments and feeling happy- so i decided to let feelings of not “looking good enough” go and just do it!
Before I felt a little hesitant like was all this effort crazy and worth it, during it felt a little weird to take time out for us, but then realized during session how nice it was to reflect on us- the letter we wrote to each other to remind each other how much we love each other was that moment that kicked in that told me it was needed for us- it’s rare we take out the time to actually say something from the heart and express it. Yes we write cards for anniversaries but really it was nice taking a little more time for this. After the session, I felt great that we had some dedicated time to each other, seeing the beautiful memories captured by you are so awesome and feel so special to us! Ben is talking of getting a canvas blown up and putting it in his man cave (what!? COMPLIMENT!) and I absolutely want a custom album created to reflect back often on these gorgeous photos!
Seeing them makes me realize even more what we have- an awesome love for each other and seeing it reflected in images is timeless and precious I will forever cherish them! I’m soooooo happy of what you captured! In life there’s no guarantees- if something happened to one of us in the future, I have amazing memories to fall back on!”
