They say “Home is where the heart is”. Many of us have come to really appreciate our homes in these past weeks. You might be working from home or called to work a lot at an essential job and be away from home. I’m thinking back today to a couple who really put their heart into each other and their home, and it shows in these editorial images I took for Adventist Healthcare’s Healthcare and You cover story.
I love photographing people who are warm and inviting, and these two were so warm and gracious. Their home was their den, and the kitchen the heart of their home. Both of them loved cooking and being together, both really important things right now. I really like the space I’m photographing in to be a subject in the images as much as the people, and there was a lot to work with in their home. Add in some beautiful lighting (both found and additional) and it’s a recipe for a great editorial shoot! It was fantastic hearing their story of getting back to wellness as I photographed Larry both with Barbara in their home and at the Cardiac gym during a workout.
A big shout out to the fab Adventist team for having me photograph this lovely couple. I appreciate the opportunity. If you have an idea for a shoot, I’d love to chat!
