Liz & Caroline

JUNE – 2020

There is a beauty in being confident.  Meet Liz & Caroline –  young love.  I photographed both of them for their 2020 Senior Session (Caroline in the fall and Liz in the Spring).  I found out they were a couple and a photo shoot during PRIDE Month was in order. These girls could not be more confident, kind, loving, aware, insightful, bright and joyful.  It brings me great hope and joy when I think about their generation moving ahead.  No words can express how lovely both of these ladies are – but Liz’s words on Instagram said it best…

I’m the happiest in your arms ❤️ Happy pride month everyone 🏳️‍🌈
Big thank you to @jennywattsphoto for taking these you’re a legend and I’m forever grateful ✨
And @russbrouse for the hair and makeup you’re the best 😘
I can’t post something on social media without talking about what is happening in the world today. Caroline and I never would have been able to take these pictures, or walk down the street holding hands, or probably even date if it weren’t for the beautiful activists who came before us. We wouldn’t be able to fully be our selves without the Stonewall Riots, without activist like Marsha P. Johnson, Moms Mabley, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde and countless others(if you don’t know who these people are please look them up 😊) Right now we as a society have the unique opportunity and the power to lift up our brothers and sisters. To kill a systematically racist society and rebuild to create something new and beautiful. While I will never understand what it’s like to be black in America(or any person of color for that matter) I know that no one should ever be in fear of people who are supposed to protect and help. Everything in the world is uncomfortable – but nothing good ever came easy. Please keep donating(link in my bio!!), protesting and using your voice ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜”
