Anita had told me all about Rick at her boudoir photography session the previous year. She was so clearly in love, bubbly and excited and extra happy telling me about him. And so I got bubbly and excited myself when she reached out to tell me that Rick was going to be coming up from Florida to visit her and that the two of them wanted to do a couple's portrait photography session at our Maryland portrait photography studio, and that I was going to get to meet Rick!
Rick is a 20-year Navy veteran and had never been professionally photographed before, so this was a first for him. And when I met him, he was so very sweet and nice, and he and Anita just really... well... matched. After Anita received her first couple's portrait, she showed it to Rick, and reported back to tell me that he not only loved it, but said that it's the only (first) photograph he has of himself that he doesn't feel self-conscious about, and that it was all because of me, their professional photographer! Well that certainly made my day. It's such an incredible feeling to make people feel good... no GREAT! about themselves!
Anyway, here are some of my favorites from their sweet and bubbly couple's portrait photography session. Enjoy!
