February 24, 2011 Just Because

Last week on Valentine’s I blogged about “Where are all the Pictures?” I talked about how Mark and I have had professional family photos done – but none of the two of us. We’ve been married for 14 years and don’t have any professional photos??

People responded that they too were in the same boat. Either they haven’t been photographed together since their wedding, or they’re still dating but would love couple photos or…. there were a lot of reasons but the fact was people seem to be lacking in the photo department of themselves as a couple.

When I have photographed couples “just because” – I hear the comment “this is good for our marriage!” Or “can we do this more often?” I don’t know about you – but it is rare that we take time out as a couple. As a mom, a friend, a volunteer, a career person.. but it’s easy to forget to take time for the one closest to me. When I think about life with Mark now compared to when I was 20 years old and walking down the aisle, we have grown and changed. We have faced heartbreak and joy. We have become completely different people than who we were all those years ago. And it’s this stage I want to document.

So… all this to say… I’m going to offer two days of “just because” shoots for couples. Normally a session might take an hour and half or two hours… these will be limited to 45minutes and all will be shot at my home property. This will be for couples only – hire a babysitter, come spend some time together – and why not make a day of it. Get your hair and makeup done. Go for lunch. I can recommend great little spots in my neck of the woods to visit and explore. Spend a day with the person you’ve committed to spend your life with.

Each day is limited to 8 couples only – so book early! Drop me a line at info@edisonphotography.com with the subject line “just because”.
