A Decade of Love - Ten Year Anniversary Self Portraits.

"here is the deepest secret nobody knows
 (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud 
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
 higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) 
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
 i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)..." E. E. Cummings

Ten years ago I made the best decision of my life, I vowed to commit myself,  mind, body and soul to  the most wonderful man God could have ever created for me. I married my best friend. My partner in every sense of the word. The love of my life... My husband. My heart: Kevin.

We love each other unconditionally, passionately - truly and deeply. A decade by his side has made me happier than I could have ever envisioned. He is the man who makes my dreams come true every day...

And so we thought it most appropriate to commemorate this most significant of anniversaries, with a photo shoot in what happens to now be one of our favorite places on earth - Sardinia, Italy. 

This photo session would prove to be unique and require quite a bit of ingenuity for various reasons. One being that it was my first self-portrait session. As a photographer I am always behind the lens, this time I was to be in front and simultaneously play the role of photographer and subject. With the aid of our trusty tripod - much pre-planning, some comical creativity and this uniquely gorgeous rustic background - we set out to capture the story of our love and dedication to each other.

Please enjoy some of our favorite captures from this memorable shoot...

This gorgeous landscape print of Nebida, Sardinia, is now available for purchase in my art shop.

With bated breath I await for what the next decade has in store for us. As long as we are hand in hand and guided by our God and that triple fold cord and I carry his heart in my heart - there is nothing we cannot face. Nothing we cannot endure. 

A woman in love,
