I was really excited to post this session as Jackie and her husband have been long time clients with me, so much so they have truly became friends. I mean after 3 years together, that's kinda what happens. She booked me for their very first couple session, her first boudoir session, her daughters newborn, 6 month, 1 year photos, and even their recent family photos. She has seen me when I wasnt that great and honestly loved me still. Being about to share their amazing couples boudoir session with you is truly heart warming. Here is there story!
"Ive been all shapes and sizes with this man, so why not celebrate us."
10 years of Marriage.
Seems like a long time to some people, but to me, it still feels like its just the beginning. Josh and I met in high school in NJROTC, but we never really talked until my junior year, his senior. To tell you it was love "at first sight" would be a lie because I had always saw him in school. Once I got a look at who he REALLY was, that's when I fell. We married a month after i graduated high school June 2008, and we started our journey together. People like to leave out that marriage is work. It's A LOT of work. There have been many of times we have both woken up, and not liked the person we were next to, but we have always loved each other.
We experienced our first deployment in 2011, I was 21 and he was 22. Reintegration back home was tough. This was the BIGGEST challenge in our marriage. I'm telling you this because it's not always cupcakes and rainbows. Once we got over that hurdle we were able to be more open and honest with each other. I'm thankful for that time. It helped mold us and our marriage. If you cant be thankful for the rough patches, you tend to look over those little things as well. We both believe that marriage isn't 50/50, it's 100/100. Even if your other half is only giving you 20, you give that 100 no matter what. We have always strived to remember that.
We had premarital counseling before we got married because the state we married in gave a discount on your license if you did, and we were always told to "never go to bed angry and always kiss each other goodnight". This is something we have always tried to stick with as well, and its gotten us through a lot.
This session was very much a celebration of our love and our crazy personalities toward each other. I see a side of my husband most people do not see, and that's a part I love the most. If you really sit down to get to know us both, we are polar opposites in many ways, but we balance each other out. I love this man with my whole being, and I know that's true for him too. Looking back at our 10 years of marriage together almost seems like it wasn't that long ago. I'm very blessed to have a man that is supportive, loves unconditionally, and completes me. I hear people say this a lot, "they just changed so much, that's not the person I married". I'm so thankful that Josh isn't the person I married and that he has changed. I know he would say the exact thing too. We have grown up together and apart in this marriage, because of the navy, and I wouldn't want to experience this life with anyone else.
We still flirt like we are in high school, he still smacks me on the ass, and I smack his ass back too. We hold hands in the car or he will place his hand on my leg. He opens doors for me and I do the same for him. Don't forget those little things because they add up to bigger things later on.
I hope you enjoy their couples boudoir session! Scroll all the way down to see some of Jackie rocking her amazing mom bod!
We even made sure to get some kick ass portraits of just Jackie.
This girl has told me so many stories about her body. She was small, she was heavier, she was paralyzed, she was small, she gave birth, she was heavier, she was diabetic, and she lost weight again. She has celebrated so many different journeys in her life, I wanted to make sure while we still celebrated her beautiful marriage, she was not forgetten.
