If You're a Bird, I'm a Bird.

My good friend, Jodie asked me to shoot photos of her and her beloved for their Christmas card this past December. Initially I hesitated mostly because I've never shot photographs of a couple before. Most of my work has been around runway shows and fashion related events where I am not responsible for directing the subjects in front of my camera but positioning my frame to capture what my heart saw. Because Jodie is a good friend I wanted to do this for her and after our session ended I was really glad I did. This photo shoot wasn't so different from shooting the runway shows that I love because I can easily see the love between Jodie and her beloved. Jodie and I have been good friends since high school therefore we've been through so much together. From the awkward teenage issues to the 'what should I do with my life' phase and then there's the heartbreaks and tears we've shared over the relationships that didn't work. When it comes to love, today we are both in a much better place and you can really just see the happiness in her face in these photographs. It wasn't difficult for me to capture the pure joy that was oozing out of my friend from being in love. Her beloved can make her laugh with just one silly stare and he can instantly comfort her with the simplest touch of his hand. For my friend, Jodie I hope that she will always be this happy and that love will always be by her side...
