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. They mean so much to me. Media has conditioned many to chase after their "ride or die", and that a relationship without a constant repetition of highs and lows is boring and stale.
Relationships are nuanced and the intricacies should be individualized. To me, a neutral baseline is very 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, we might end up in a pile of giggles. Nothing is forced. We just “are”.
