I always say if working one-on-one with a woman and seeing her literally transform before my very eyes wasn't basically the most fulfilling thing in the world, that I'd consider specializing in couples exclusively.
I. LOVE. COUPLE. SESSIONS.
From a photographer's standpoint, I love them because I get to capture real-time intimacy, and that just makes my heart flutter 🥰 there's also a ton of other reasons, but here's 5 Reasons Why YOU need to jump into the studio for a COUPLE SESSION....
REASON #1: It's Getting Hot In Here - AKA HOTTEST DATE EVER
I don't know about you, but getting to prance around the studio in lingerie, getting kissed up and down and having your partner's hands all up on you for basically 90 min straight (WITHOUT doing the real deal wham bam thank you ma'am) sounds like one HOTTTT AF date (not to mention, total tease 😅) Personally, I absolutely recommend making your couple session Part 1 of an epic date DAY. Literally a WHOLE ASS DAY. Why? Well first off, you're gonna get all dolled up and who doesn't love to maximize a good hair/face day? But also, you're going to start the day off with such an amazing connection with your partner, you're not going to want that to end with the usual day-to-day disruptions that don't allow couples to maintain that level of connection all the time. My dream for you is you'll leave the studio feeling so unexpectedly connected (or reconnected) with your partner and choose to spend the rest of the day completely wrapped up in each other, distraction-free. The studio is located in the Chelsea District of Downtown Norfolk, and very close to some amazing places to eat, walk around, and enjoy each other's company. If you seriously cannot handle one more moment without ripping each other's clothes off, there's even some amazing hotels nearby 😉 (Hubby and I's favorite for staycations is The Main by Hilton!)
And guess what, after your session, you'll have the opportunity for ANOTHER date night when we get back together for your Image Premiere when you see all of your images for the first time and design your Product Collection. My favorite for couples is Luxury Albums or the Locket Box.
REASON #2: YOU want some sexy pics of THEM, too, right!?
Typically when people think of boudoir, they consider it a gift a woman gives to her partner. Well, with a couple session, both you AND your partner are able to walk away from the experience with amazing photos together and of EACH OTHER. I always set aside some time to work one-on-one with the partner that less frequently gets in front of the camera (typically the dude 🤣). These solo shots from the day are my favorite for nightstand prints so each of you have a special image of your partner just for you, while you have that super amazing one of the two of you together over your bed (just giving you some ideas 😉).
REASON #3: See YOURSELF the way they see you
I LOVE when I'm shooting a couple and I hear something like "Oh, I love the way her nose scrunches when she laughs". Not only is that adorable (obvi) but also, a little glimpse into the way your partner sees you. That little love statement just told me I need to be sure to capture that nose scrunch for them, but ALSO so YOU get a chance to love yourself the way they love you. Same goes for the dudes! I hear things like "I LOVE his chest hair" and that's yet another detail to capture that will begin telling the story of your intimacy.
