It’s funny how life throws little graces at you here and there. I had intended on something different entirely for this cold December day, but what I was left with was something moving and real. Having never met Mike before, I was introduced to him through a mutual friend. We exchanged messages and ideas back and forth over the course of a couple days and he showed up at my house to test light and create some interested portraits. It was then that I found out his boyfriend dropped him off and was hoping to get a quick shot of them together. That changed the focus of my shooting to be about their connection.
You don’t have to be married or engaged to have your love documented and it doesn’t discriminate against age, gender or race. This is an intimate same-sex portrait session and it’s beautiful.
