When I first was contacted by Alyssa via email my first impression was that she was a gentle soul who really seemed to know what she wanted. Very polite. She was asking for a session that would land in the middle of my family time during Christmas. It would only be a quick session and I had now found myself really wanting to met this lovely gal.
Brad and Alyssa have been together for a long time (longer than most their age) and the two of them would be celebrating their 5th ‘Anniversary’ mid December. They were looking to commemorate the occasion with a photo session. What is truly remarkable is that the past two years they have been making the ‘long distance’ trek with Brad attending school more than two provinces away. I was more than happy to help them celebrate this particular anniversary with photos and to work within a tight time frame during the busiest time… Christmas time.
We both had hoped that the weather would work out in our favor considering it would be late December and a desire for an outdoor session. Mother Nature was kind, sunshine and reasonable temperatures truly a perfect day for exploring Fish Creek Park.
Both were such wonderful people, I did have a whole lot of fun and it was easy for them to immerse themselves into each other. Simply perfect!
Young love, their love… certainly a beautiful thing.
