“Home is where our love resides; Four walls, two hearts.”
I want to tell you a story; your story, my story, that of a stranger or two. That’s why I became a photographer. With my camera in hand, I can show you what living looks like. I can show you emotion and detail and life. I have found my best storytelling happens when I’m swept in emotion, even if that emotion isn’t my own.
This shoot was an emotional experience for me though. I was hesitant to share the story I wanted to tell because I knew that meant I’d have to open myself up. This styled shoot is inspired by my own experience melded with some amazingly creative vendors whom I adore.
This started as just a vision in my head, as I imagine most do. It is special to me though because my inspiration comes from my own relationship. As a military family, our roots were wherever we planted our feet. That changes often in that situation. Home became wherever we ended up, so long as we were together. It’s that romantic notion that kept me grounded and is the same one that inspired this shoot. Sometimes, all you really do need is love (and four walls) to truly be ‘home’.
To the team of AMAZING people who helped make this shoot a reality, THANK YOU! You are all so incredibly talented! This shoot far exceeded my own expectations. I got to tell a story filled with emotion, detail, and love. I am so happy with all of it and I am incredibly excited to be able to share it with the world!
