|I took this picture of this dried yellow rose today. This is one of a bouquet of roses that one of my daughters received for Valentine's day.|
As I type this post, I am listening to a live taping on Livestream by guy named Jesh de Rox. He is speaking about his passion regarding a new photography service that he has begun to offer to his clients. I found him through an e-mail invitation from Dane Sanders. Dane is a West Coast Wedding Photographer and author of Fast Track Photographer. So, right away I did a search of Jesh de Rox and listened to his 45 minute talk that he gave at the WPPI Conference. I love the way he puts his whole heart on the line while he offers his personal experiences in his photography career. When he began to incorporate Beloved Sessions into his business, he was able to touch so many couples lives. It gave him an opportunity to interact with clients. In most cases, those same clients have precious relationships but have gotten so involved in their day to day lives, they had forgotten about romance. During the Beloved Sessions, the couples are encouraged to remember how they felt when their romance was new. I absolutely love this concept. Because I so enjoy engagement sessions, I would also love to begin offering Beloved Sessions. Beloved Sessions look a lot like Engagement Sessions except that the couples are already married. It doesn't matter how long married ...six months, one year, two, ten...fifty years! How about that concept? I think it is stinkin' ah-mazing! Heck. I would love to have a Beloved Session with my sweet husband of almost 25 years! Oh my, how those years have rolled by! I only wish we were the same size we were 25 years ago. But, you know what? What is real, is real. And, I can tell you that I really do love my Beloved. And, I know that he loves me. A Beloved Session sounds like a sweet and wonderful way to rekindle the love and affection a couple has for each other. Priceless!
If I were photographing a Beloved Session, it would look a lot like my Engagement Sessions. During the Engagement Session, I prompt the couple with suggestions then I catch their interactions. I feel like the director of a Romance Movie. :) We all love those scenes where the man and woman flirt wiih each other with their eyes. We the audience, can't help but smile because Love is Lovely.
