I‘m going to stop promising I will be a better blogger, and instead, just state the facts: blogging is going to be inconsistent for a while here. The third trimester of this pregnancy is kicking my butt, and when I get home from my day job, all I want to do is melt on the couch and not open a laptop. Plus I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’ve been mostly, wholly consumed by the news lately of these poor immigrant families being ripped apart, detained, and treated like animals. Every time I see that viral image of the toddler girl, crying watching her mom be detained, I pretty much lose it. So yeah, that isn’t helping things either and I know you don’t come here for politics, but if you have ANY room in your wallet, some of these organizations could use your help, to help these families.
Or, if donating isn’t your thing, and you don’t live in Washington, DC, PLEASE call your reps and tell them how you feel about this.
And with that, let’s change gears and let some love into our day/life. We need love more now, than ever. So here’s a gorgeous modern architecture-inspired engagement shoot with two beautiful people, with gorgeous smiles, and lots of love. Happy Monday Romancers.
Inspiration for the shoot:
Being based in such a beautiful city, we get a ton of client requests for photos with DC architecture. This typically consists of the gorgeous DC classics, such as the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, etc. With this shoot, we wanted to show the lesser visited places in DC, where the architecture is just as stunning! We went for an elegant, classy feel with wardrobe and the beautiful engagement details, striving to show couples that their engagement session can include a ton of personalized details, too!
