PETER + ALEX
"You have to find that place that brings out the human in you. The soul in you. The love in you." -R.M. Drake
The day was bridges, buildings, blankets, and boys- and let me tell you, it was the BEST day.
Here's why: As an individual in a same sex relationship I know how daunting it is to get photos taken. You know in advance that you fit together differently, that your love isn’t the his and her poses you see on your feed and more than likely you’re not used to showing much PDA on the streets. When I met up with Peter + Alex they shared the same types of fears and thought maybe they would look awkward in front of a lens. My job is to create an atmosphere that assures you otherwise. The more we talked and walked the more their relationship started to shine and the less they noticed their nonverbal cues. They melted into one another like they usually do. Capturing them in their own little world opened my eyes to just how much we have to lean on our partner in a relationship that could be misunderstood. If you’re still here, what I’m trying to say is in this session we got there. We got to a place of beauty and authenticity and if you’re struggling to feel that- let me show you.
