Thanks to everyone who took the time to view this beautiful array of images on Inspired by This! Now, it’s my turn to get to share my very favorites from this glorious session with sweet couple Millie+Jonathan. Also, make sure you turn back to the equally-as-beautiful part 1 if you missed that lovely set!
Millie and Jonathan are two sweet souls with a deep passion for art and creativity that draws them together. These two are lovers of out-of-town adventures, so we snuck away to the quiet space of Saguaro Lake in Arizona for a relaxed and stunning setting. Knowing the surroundings would be so beautiful, Millie and Jonathan went with soft, neutral colors (with one exception–a pop of red lipstick) that wouldn’t be distracting to the colors of the desert and mountains, and to allow for their love to be the true focus of the shoot. Having a long distance relationship, Jonathan has been sending Millie sweet packages since their relationship began from creative pieces made by hand (he’s a graphic designer) to articles of his favorite styles for her to wear. The hat Millie is wearing is one of the very first pieces Jonathan mailed to her from his home in Chicago, so it plays a special role in their relationship. We shot these images while Jonathan visited from Chicago, and soon, they will get to be in the same state. Until then, these images are visual reminders of the deep love they share for one another–even from states away.
Jonathan is the talented designer who made my background. He’s got one lucky lady (one of my dearest friends), and a wonderfully creative mind!
