Why We All Need More Couples Photos

I've been married to my wife now for 12 years. I take photos of her a lot.  I don't take photos of us that much though.    

I created this photo book for her as a gift to celebrate our anniversary. 

As I was creating it I realized just how few photos that we actually had together.

I wasn't ok with this.  I thought to myself "this is the most important person in the world to me and I don't have more photos of us.  what's the deal?"

I realized that  1) I'm always holding the camera.  2) I usually just take photos of Kathryn and not us.

I also noticed how I felt creating this book for her.  I felt joy, connection, intimacy...lots of dopamine being released. 

I asked myself "why am I not taking more photos of couples so they can feel this too?"

One of the goals that I have for the new year is to make more portraits "couples".  I'm going to be working hard to step outside of my normal "portrait" and to focus more on couples portraits. 

What does that mean for you?  

If you have a partner then we should connect!

If you know someone who has a partner then share this with them!

Take advantage of the "Couples Portrait Session" special that I've got going on this month:

In honor of celebrating 12 years with the love of my life, I've decided to give you the opportunity to invest in a couple's session with the love of YOUR life. I am offering 1/2 off my normal session fee.

Happy Holidays,

Mark
