2020 - 2021
This is a collection of small moments I captured of my partner earlier on in our relationship. These moments of thought, joy, the mundane, and pause reflect a time in our relationship when we were still exploring and learning new things about each other, but had also gained comfort in just "being" with each other.
A lot of these moments may seem insignificant to some, including my partner, but they mean so much to me. I don’t want a relationship that’s a constant repetition of highs and lows. I do think there needs to be excitement and vulnerability, but I also think a neutral baseline is very important and grounding. When there are so many things in life that are uncertain, it’s comforting to know that I can go to my partner and just “be”. We might binge a TV show, I might ask him to pose for my camera, we might end up in a pile of giggles. Nothing is forced. We just “are”.
