Someone asked me what my favourite topic to photograph is. Was it family, couples, portrait, weddings, newborn, etc?
i love photographing happiness – in any form.
The tears of joy? Belly laughter? Ear-to-ear smiles? Those moments make me feel like it’s Christmas morning, and yes, I still get real pumped about December 25th. 🙂
I know life doesn’t always look like that. I know there are chapters that are filled with pain, sorrow and fear. I know we all have days when we don’t want to leave the house, or better yet, our bed.
That’s what makes the moments of pure joy that much better. Chances are those who are filled with unimaginable joy have it because at one point they got through times of unimaginable pain – and they overcame it until they built a life they loved. Until they found their people, their world and they woke each day ready to make it count.
Pure joy, laughter, adventures and happiness are the words I’d use to describe my session with Robbie, Desirae and Zola. This crew has love and happiness that can’t be made up. They are all the goals, guys.
I was running on 3 hours of sleep, and had been home from a camping/roadtrip for less than 24 hours – I was TIRED. Yet, five minutes into their session and I was filled with energy. Their joy is infectious, and I spent the entire time laughing, smiling and enjoying their barefoot beauty!
We met at a spot Desirae and Zola use to go for picnics almost every weekend. The sun was setting, the bugs were out and the cell service was zilch. Everything was perfect, except we coulda probably done with one or two less bugs 🙂
They climbed into valleys, jumped over rocks, danced on the smallest surface ever – AND they did it all WITHOUT shoes. I’m in love with them.
Okay, enough words.
enjoy their beautiful pictures – because seriously – these guys. <3
