It is so appropriate that I am sitting here writing this blog post with the extraordinary voice of Audra McDonald in the background. When I hear her music, I think of Adam and Zev. They might be the only people to love her as much (more?) as I do. She is amazing and inspiring. This is a video of her singing the most beautiful song. Though, I wouldn't watch it unless you have some time to recover after. I'd say it's NSFW, but for emotion, rather than nudity. In any case, a lot of what I admire about Audra (yes we're on a first-name basis) is her ability to tell a story, to connect with her piece, and to help you feel like you're there with her. Which is one of my biggest goals with photography. I want you to feel like you know the person on the other side of my lens -- like you could reach through and give them a hug. I want to tell the story of the men and women I shoot sessions with. And in this session with Adam and Zev, I want you to be able to feel the love and joy that they share with each other, and with the world.
Adam and Zev are a phenomenal couple. They are ridiculously talented, so giving, and constantly loving. They have excellent cooking abilities (we love cooking -and eating- with them!) and are the best doggie parents you could ask for. I could seriously go on and on about how wonderful Adam and Zev are. But instead, I think I'd just prefer to show you, and hope that even an ounce of their wonderful is tangible through these images.
The photo on the right is Adam and Zev's "Myra Face" -- I love it!
See what I mean? These two are AMAZING. We love you both!
