What Erin brings to Chi’s life | Yellow Fields Part 2 of 3
Why tell a second story?
I usually don’t do this. Usually I or my couple have a certain emotion or feeling they want to capture and the story I tell on my blog stays true to that vision and that essence. For example for Sean & Emma’s sad engagement shoot we actually have lots of very happy smiley images but it’s unlikely I’ll ever publish them. Sean and Emma have those images but the love story I tell on thaoski.com stays true to the concept I designed and the story they wanted to tell.
However Erin & Chi’s shoot has become an exception to the rule because it was part of the Spontaneous Spring Challenge. We started the challenge with no expectations and the whole idea of the challenge was to experiment and see how much we can shoot in one day. So here we go …
Yellow Fields Part 2 … The love and light Erin brings into Chi’s life
It seemed unfair for me to hold these images back because it captured another dimension to Erin & Chis’s relationship that I think is so beautiful. It showcases what Erin brings into Chi’s life … which is laughter, light and love. She really lights him up and adds depth and meaning to his life.
I know people fall in love for all kinds of reasons but I read somewhere that a man will only marry a woman if she brings meaning and purpose into his life. Somehow through her presence and belief in him she inspires him to be a better man. And when he’s with her he feels good, he feels content and he feels on purpose.
But this is only one half of the equation. She must also make him smile and laugh and bring lightness to his life (which Erin absolutely does). And through lighting him up and through loving him for who he is, she completes him. So his life purpose then becomes about making her happy. He wants to provide for her and give her the best possible life he can give.
I know that sounds really mushy mushy but somehow for Erin and Chi that dynamic feels very real. Erin does bring a sense of goodness/ wholesomeness/ love into his life that he can’t live without. And I truly believe he will always do whatever it takes will make her happy. Because of her goodness and her love he will strive to be better.
I hope when you look at these images you can see the love and laughter Erin brings into Chi’s life. Enjoy!
