Yesterday I shot my first beloved session with my friends, Katie & Brian. They will share their thoughts on the session later this week, but if you look at the images, you will see they had a really great time!! I came prepared with a list of activities and conversation starters. None of these shots were posed. I guided them as to where to sit and stand (for background purposes), but all emotions, expressions, and interactions were authentic. They were never told to smile. They were guided through experiences together focusing on the goodness in their relationship and taking time to enjoy each other. Beloved sessions intertwine fun moments with tender moments in a beautiful way. Please see my previous blog post if you want to know what beloved is.
Here’s a slideshow sneak peek from their session. I included about 40 pics so you can get a good feel of what beloved looks like!
