Good morning everyone,

We figured that since Jack Frost is here to stay, we might as well join in the winter fun.

No two snowflakes are alike. I feel the same way about engagement sessions. Put these two ingredients together – snowflakes + an engagement session – and your photographs have the potential to be full of romance and wonder.

The analogy doesn’t end there though. Snowflakes are also quite delicate, their beautiful form can be caught on the tip of your tongue or in hand, but almost immediately they lose their crystalline form once captured.

I feel like catching a snowflake is great analogy for what we do: making photographs.

Once we’ve figured out where we want to shoot, taken the light into consideration, and found some loose posing that will most flatter our couple, it’s all about catching snowflakes.

And by snowflakes, of course I mean genuine expressions of love and connection between our couples.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not running around a field with my camera ablaze hoping and praying I’ll catch something beautiful. That would be the equivalent of sticking my tongue out and hoping to catch a snowflake. And I don’t care who you are, no one likes it when you stick your tongue out at them. Especially two people who are already feeling vulnerable enough – likely in front of the camera for the first time.

No, we know we are catching snowflakes – that is to say delicate moments, and expressions of love between two people – we are deliberate.  We make the appropriate choices to make our couples feel free to fall into our hands and share their connection to one another in front of us.

Congratulations Kristin and Steve, thank you for your trust and for braving the snow with us!

Bon Appétit,

The Violets
