Fall in love.

Jennie & Jason have been together for over 2 years now, and I was finally able to catch them for a shoot in old towne Portsmouth. It was a bit cool outside, and happened to be the first (hopefully of many) of chilly outdoor shoots on the cobblestones. I enjoyed capturing the smiles they thought I didn't see, and the glances while I "adjusted settings" ... I love fall merely because the lighting just looks so incredibly perfect. Here's to many more.

which one's your favorite?

Her Moon, Her Man...

These are not new pictures, but I figured I'd start my first real post with something worthwhile. The following are of my dear roommate and her boyfriend. They've been together for many moons and I've had the great privilege of shooting their anniversary pictures each year. It was crazy looking back at the first shoot we did as I compiled the collection for this post. Here are some of my personal favorites.

Kelsey & Jared - Spring 2009:

One of my favorite parts about shooting this couple is the fact that I'm not there. I'm just another breeze blowing as they lean in to kiss each other. I'm just another bird chirping in a distant tree as he goes to grab her hand. I love the fluidity of the expressions. I love how easy it for them to show, without regard, without any inhibitions  -- the definition of love. And as simple as that may sound - they help me to capture it in its most genuine state. It's magical.

more to come. thanks for stopping by.

the photos are coming!!!!

i promise.
i have a gap of nothingness after the 3 mile run and before the alarm clock gets set for tuesday.
