From the instant I said, “Hello” to Sarah and Steven I knew it was going to be a great evening in downtown Springfield. I had a smile on my face throughout their entire session, while I edited their images and even now as I’m typing their blog post. They are that charming! It was a beautiful fall evening. Sarah and Steven were so fun and easy going. I had the best time walking around downtown with them, chatting and getting to know them a little better. We stopped along the way at different alleyways or stairwells that caught our eye. It was such a relaxed and enjoyable session!
They were just a few weeks away from celebrating their three-year wedding anniversary. If I didn’t know any better, I would have guessed they had just been engaged! I loved the way they would look at each other and the way they interacted together. Sarah would look up and giggle at Steven and he would sneak in little kisses every so often. When you are around them you know that you are in the presence of true love. They truly are a beautiful couple inside and out!
As we were coming to the end of their session we started on the subject of our sweet fur babies we have at home. I was telling them about our handsome little French bulldog, Wally and they excitedly responded with “Oh my goodness! We have two Boston Terriers”. Immediately I stopped in my tracks. Nothing brings people together faster than the love of Boston Terriers (well … maybe not, but Boston lovers definitely stick together)! Ha! Anyone that knows me knows how much I loved my sweet Peanut! It’s been almost three months since we lost her and to hear that Sarah and Steven have two little BTs at home just made them that much more amazing! I began to tell them about Peanut and you could see the sympathy in their eyes. Animal lovers can definitely empathize with how hard it is to lose them. They are family and you love them so much. We continued to talk and laugh about our funny little fur babies. Our worlds would be boring without them, that is for sure. The next day I get a very kind, “Thank You” message from Sarah along with a picture of her precious Boston Terriers. I can’t tell you how happy this made me! I can never get enough of those little smashed faces! They melt my heart every time. I’m telling you … we dog lover’s stick together! Ha
Sarah and Steven it was truly an honor to photograph the two of you! I hope you had a wonderful anniversary! Here’s to many many (many) more anniversaries together!
Here are just a few of my favorite images from their fall photo session. Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
