Self portraits. Ah, first of all they're so fun to edit. I get more expressive with them, and it taps into my creativity bank. Secondly, when you're behind the lens 95% of the time it's not a bad idea to document yourself so that your loved ones knew you existed when you're long gone. Kind of kidding but it's also kind of true. I'm saying going beyond pictures of yourself candidly blowing out birthday candles, or in a snap chat selfie... document who you are. Who you were. There are pictures of my grandmother & my mother, my aunts and so many other women close to me that I look upon and admire. I look back and swoon over their youth and beauty. It's special. So, I create that. Both for me and for my children. You should too. <3
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of traveling to Boston for a special & beautiful engagement session. These two got engaged right under the arches in the North End. It was fitting that we went right back to the very spot she said "yes" for some photography bliss <3
Here are some of my favorite images from this gorgeous session. Wishing you both all the best in your future together!
