Emily + Aaron

I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon photographing my friend and fellow photographer Emily and her boyfriend, Aaron, in the lingering snow of Boston. The day smelled like spring and felt hopeful for warm days to come...I love the transitions between the seasons, those days that feel so unexpected, like they just arrived to make your day.

We played a little in the Back Bay area and then headed over to the Arboretum (my favorite place to be during lilac season- early May you can find me waiting out the rush hour traffic reading a book under a lilac tree). This was the first time Emily had ever had her picture taken with someone else- watching her and Aaron together it was amazing to see the many sides to their love...the intricacies of our relationships are so interesting...how we share our love without speaking.

I love hands, how they speak so clearly for us, no words needed...

Love this one...

And love that this is just 3 seconds later...

Mike came with me for this shoot just for fun and captured this beautiful shot (and the one of the hands above).

The sun suddenly peeked out from behind the clouds and bam- the whole landscape changed in an instant.

This one seems so Emily to me...makes me keep smiling.

Two of my very favorites...

This last one makes me think of a quote I just read by Minnie Aumonier, “There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.”
