Our love was born outside the walls,
in the wind, in the night, in the earth,
and that’s why the clay and the flower,
the mud and the roots know your name.
– Pablo Neruda
I met Jen online through a Facebook group, and when she found out that I was heading to the U.S – she nabbed me for a maternity/boudoir shoot on my way to Iowa. I’d never ventured into the midwest before, but it was love at first sight. Red leaves, dramatic skies, actual bare trees, long grass in Autumn (oops sorry, ‘Fall’) (either way – no brown snakes here!) – and Jen, braving the biting cold in a cute white dress (and rain boots!) in a forest was just…the picture of pure dedication.
Jen, it was so wonderful to meet you in person.
Thanks for the warm welcome and for being an total trooper. x
