Something I struggle with when photographing couples (or honestly anyone) is not letting gender norms rule the session. As a human being living in this heteronormative and homophobic society, I see a lot of photographs of straight or straight-appearing couples posed in ways that put each person into a box that honestly many people don’t fit into. I also take plenty of those photos. That’s why I love photographing Ben and I so much. It’s actually a wonderful lesson in posing. I pose Ben and I in ways that we naturally act together. The photos I take of us are my most accomplished couples photos because they are the most natural and realistic. I’m passionate about showing the real moments of relationships, and I’m excited to continue to grow as a photographer to be able to capture those moments for many couples, friends, and families. As a bisexual/queer woman, I’m so thankful to be in a relationship that defies gender norms in so many ways. I love this person and I respect the ways we care for each other. Want to book a session documenting your relationship? I’m so excited about partnership of all kinds! Contact me here to book or just to say hi. I love interacting with all of you!
