makenzi & matt anniversary home session

"I would not wish any companion in the world but you." -Shakespeare

This shoot is a super fun example of how a session can evolve and tell a simple story. Starting in-home and cooking together, then going outside for a walk around the park. I love keeping things moving in this way. 

Matt & Makenzi have me take anniversary photos every year and I think it's the sweetest thing. I adore documenting their growth and their love. And I love the building relationship that it creates when I get to see them every year.  Return clients make this photographer's heart so so grateful. 

matt & makenzi anniversary session

I filmed Makenzi & Matt's wedding two years ago, and since that October, I have gotten to see them each October since. I think sessions with return clients are my favorite type of session ever because they just get more comfortable with me each time. Therefore, that much better at ignoring me and truly being themselves together. I love being ignored at a session. I love people falling into their own pattern and being truly into their people. This genuine connection makes me love my work (and my clients) more. And makes me prouder to send the session out because it's like "look how beautiful you are when you're aren't paying attention", "look how much you love each other!" Matt & Makenzi make my creativity soar and my heart happy each October I get to see them. Their peaceful joy is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

"How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking for anything, but to be okay." -Khalil Gibran
