Portrait Sessions

leanne + sam

i have a friend named leanne. she is more dear to me than the entire season of autumn & i am very serious about my love of autumn. i have a friend named sam. i have grown to become quite fond of this friend named sam. leanne likes this boy named sam… and has for many years. sam and leanne were friends for many years. sam woke up and saw wonderfulness in front of him last winter. this wonderfulness is more commonly known as leanne tam. leanne and sam started dating in february.

leanne is five foot four and weighs something miniscule like a hundred pounds. sam is six foot four and doesn’t weigh a hundred pounds. i met them both only a year ago… crazy. i was thinking about this the other day. a lot of my friendships are new ones. i find it very easy to open up, to let people into my heart and my life. i’m glad i’m like this. i’m glad leanne and sam are in my life. i’m glad they like each other. i’m glad leanne was patient. i’m glad sam is with leanne. i’m glad leanne is with sam. i’m also glad they are so good looking because it makes for a great blog post.

p.s. sam is rachael‘s youngest brother. i photographed jason + rachael last year.
