Yesterday at UT Gardens, we had models that posed for us. This couple, Amanda and Justin, were so beautiful, especially Amanda who glowed in her pregnancy. Another model lent Justin this hat and perched on the running board of an old rusted truck, I kept thinking of a story in my head, where it's the 1930's, and they're on the run from - I don't know, the law? Their parents? - because they're an interracial couple. But love conquers all, doesn't it, and all they know is that they have one another and they're blissfully happy. So I had to take my original shot and process it like that to fit the story I had. I wish Justin wasn't wearing modern sneakers, but I added a little blur to bring the attention to their faces. Oh, yes, I can be a romantic!
BTW, I asked but Amanda did not yet know the sex of her baby. "Either way," I told her, "it's going to be a beautiful baby because its parents are!"
