Valentine's Day: Wrapped Up In Purple Clover

WRAPPED UP IN PURPLE CLOVER

Their hearts were wrapped up in purple clover.

Two summers ago, when I photographed Justin and Jona, I knew that my first Valentine's Day blog post would feature them. After family portraits with their two kids and their parents, we snuck away for an intimate couples portrait session. And just like that, once they were alone, it seemed so easy for them to fall into each other and shed off the cares of the world.

They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.

Do you feel that? Love and passion are here in these photographs because Justin and Jona's vulnerability unlocked the door to my creativity (and my heart!). That is the key to portraits with feeling.

Wishing all of you a love filled Valentine's Day!
