As you may know I've been battling the sinus infection that keeps on giving, ever since Shanice and I returned from Barcelona. And then just last week, I don't know what happened but I came down with a nasty cold/fever; I was really upset because I'd been cooking up some plans that I thought were going to knock her socks off, but now it was looking like I wouldn't be able to make those plans happen!
So anyway, the day before Valentine's Day, Shanice was coming up on the train but I was so sick I had to carry myself out of bed and run down the shops to pick up her flowers, I thought if my Plan A was out of the window I was gonna make my Plan B kick ass!
As soon as she arrived, (I know it sounds corny but) I immediately started to feel much better, she was such an angel over the weekend, she was so attentive and made sure I had everything I needed; drinks, food and tissues for my runny nose.
I must say, despite being flu-ey or whatever it was, it was by far the best Valentine's Day I've ever had, so as a way to say thank you I wanted to show my girlfriend just how much she means to me, so I mustered up the energy to put a shirt and tie on and set up the lights in the studio for a quick portrait session.
I think this was the cherry on the top for a perfect Valentine's Day, this was the third Valentine's we were spending together, and I feel this picture really portrays the feelings of love we share for each other and as a bonus, she loved the picture too!
I really enjoy photographing couple portrait sessions like this, even though I was using my remote for this one which makes it slightly harder to pose, I think the came out really well!
Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed reading about the story behind the picture and I'll be posting more very very soon!
