Atkinson, NE Lifestyle and Art Photographer: LOVE SHOOT {Tricia and Chad}

I think I am in LOVE, with LOVE shoots!

I really love photographing children and teens, in fact, there have been many times that I have entertained ONLY photographing children and teens.  I think this is largely attributed to the fact that I am around them so much of the time.  There is just something about them...perhaps it is because I have a hard time acknowledging that I am an adult!  LOL!

If you asked my parents, they would probably tell you that I have been working with children my whole life, and that when I told them I was going to be a teacher instead of an archaeologist, they were not really surprised.  LOL!

However, I think I have fallen in love with working with couples.  There is something so extremely rewarding and  beautiful about being able to connect with a couple in love.  Too many times, once we have children, we cast our relationship aside to take care of our children.  Of course, raising our children is one of the most important jobs in the world, but I also believe that fostering the relationship we have with our significant other is also SO important.  I am as guilty as the next person about forgetting this from time to time, allowing other things to take precedence over it.

This is exactly the reason that I offered these Love Shoots.  I wanted to provide an opportunity for a couple to come together and document their special relationship.  You don't have to be getting married to celebrate your relationship.  Love Shoots are a wonderful way to celebrate who you are as a couple, whether a new couple or an *experienced* couple.

Tricia and Chad have been married for almost 10 years, and I am so happy I was able to give them a special Love Shoot session.  Old Man Winter did his best to put a damper on the occasion, but they were good sports, and we rolled with it.  It turns out that a little snow provides a VERY romantic setting for a love shoot.  If you are cold, what better way to warm up than snuggling up next to the one you love, while some crazy lady encourages PDA?

Tricia and Chad, you were great sports, and I SO am pleased I got to do this for you both!  Enjoy your Sneak Peek, and I will be in touch!
