I rarely photograph a lifestyle session for just a couple, but when I do it’s like taking a test and the professor handing everyone a study guid “cheat sheet” – Ace! Yup, Kabria & Michael’s session was fun, very flirty, and just like gooey sweetness wrapped up in bacon. And who doesn’t like bacon? After Kabria initially contacted me she had expressed that she had no real expectations except that she wanted to capture her and her boyfriend, Michael in front of the camera together. Sounds simple, right? Well not really for them. You see they have a sort of mini-long distance relationship. Kabria works at UCI (my alma mater …woo woo) in their student housing and Michael is a teacher in Corona. Kabria laughed as she joked about how they’ve gone from taking photos together on their phones to sending one another selfies of each other. As a photographer I almost about cried when I heard that and I wanted to make this the most beautiful and memorable session for them.
I thought the images turned out super pretty and well she emailed me right after telling me that they “absolutely loved them.” My heart went pitter patter for a second. Mission accomplished! Kabria and Michael I wish you guys even more of all the love and laughter, that you already share with one another, and a lot of happiness finding frames for these images .
