Friday afternoon I did this lovely session. I am doing a course to get certified in a certain style of photography. And  I needed a couple to complete the first course. The timing was a bit of a challenge, just after a children’s party. And outside it was minus 15 degrees or so. But D & D were troopers. We went upstairs to find a quiet place and another couple stayed downstairs to watch the children. And as soon as we started talking, we got in our own little world. And later we stepped outside for a moment.

I ask all kind of questions to get past the photography smile and aim to get authentic reactions. Besides nice images is also gives the couple something to talk about during and after the session. And usually a feeling of appreciation comes. You know why you appreciate each other (again). In the rush of daily life this can easily be forgotten.
