after love

“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person”.  Mignon McLaughlin

I get to be the person who captures new love.  You know the kind…pre-marriage, butterflies in stomach, anxious for the future.

But I also get to be the person who captures after love.  The post-marriage love that has seen kids, experiences, heartache, and happiness.  And it is beautiful.  I am so thrilled to have spent time with these two.  Just an evening of celebrating them…and their love.

This is yet another session that reminded me to stop and celebrate my own love.  You betcha that I have up and coming plans for a session of  just my hubby and I.  Can’t wait!
