I had the pleasure of shooting this session for a lovely young couple who had a lot to celebrate. They had just moved into a new house and marked their 5th wedding anniversary. I’ve had lots of camera-shy and camera-reluctant clients in the past, and most of them are of the “husband” species. Leif was one of these, but I so admire a man who can put aside his discomfort and/or boredom and patiently, kindly and lovingly indulge his wife to do something that is so important to her. The little secret most men don’t know is that one day, years down the road, they will be so glad they took the time to document this time in their lives. Especially when hairlines have receded or turned gray, bellies grown soft, and memories faded of what it felt like to be young and in love.
