The Faces of Jose

The day was blistering hot, as most days were in Arizona the month of August. Having rented the 35mm 1.4 lens for a couple I had shot the day before, I wanted to take advantage of my last day with it.

When a friend canceled last minute, I turned to Jose. Without saying a word, he shook his head and I knew that meant: "I don't have a choice, do I?" This isn't the first time this has happened, and it clearly won't be the last! :) Two things automatically happen when you date/marry a photographer: 1) you become a subject more than once 2) you learn to use an SLR.

We found some shade from the INTENSE heat and this was so much fun that I actually ended up with a lot of photos to choose from. For today I'm only sharing with you the faces this boy gives me.

I suppose I should be thankful for variety ;)




Look Meghan! EYES! :)



I heart his freckles and beady eyes.





This is his little kid face.



Hahaha. YES!!! Tell me that isn't identical! :) Sorry love, I had to!



This couldn't be more proof that I'm not the only one who laughs at my jokes!



Look at that fierceness! I've gotten this look when I've dropped his iPhone.


And this is from the set I'll be showing you next week!



Mostly I'm just thankful for a patient husband :)

Day 43: Jose

When I can't open the pasta jar, when he tells me that I smell good, when he says he can't tell if I'm wearing make up or not, when he has to slightly squat to hug me, when he carries me down the stairs after a virus empties my stomach, when he laughs with me (or at me usually), when he makes up Spanish words, when he leaves me voicemails in random accents, when he sends me videos about random science stuff, and when he goes through 10 dandelions so I can get at least 1 or 2 good shots... he makes me feel loved. Mixed in that love, he definitely makes me feel feminine.



My fiance... Jose :) I'll share more of this shoot throughout the week!
