Young lovers w/ Caribbean tans

Yeah, I know; this location gets overplayed. But it's literally right outside my apartment so, how can I not use it?
Vintage car, vintage guitar, look how incredibly in love they are!

You can't go wrong with water as your background, no matter what pond water looks like under a microscope.
They should have had a place like this to go with your girlfriend in high school. Who would have ever found you?
Him: Did that hurt? Her: Did what hurt? Him: When YOU fell down from Heaven? You know, cuz you look just like an angel.
This couple just got engaged, and just got back from a Caribbean cruise. Of course, they had perfect tans, while the rest of us were becoming ghostly white in our........what's the opposite of tropical paradise? Anyway, I LOVED shooting them. I rarely had to pose them. They just got in front of the camera took over. Great shoot.

So........I haven't blogged about school for awhile. How's that going, you ask? Well, let's say today is a bad case of the Mondays for me. I arrived at school 2 hours late. Actually, this has more to do with me NOT being able to wait to edit yesterday's photo shoot, so I was up until 1AM. That's not a good idea when you have to be in class at 7:30AM the following morning. Oh well, this way, it's done and I can study all week for my Physics midterm exam. I also have a Botany quiz in a little over an hour. I think I'm OK there. I'll need about a 20 min cram session just before I tackle that one.
School is going pretty well, all in all. I don't like physics any more than I thought I would. I will be glad to delete about 90% of it from my brain after the semester. Since I only have to take the GRE for grad school and not the mCAT, I'm not going to need any physics. (I'm sure it will help that I understand the basics when I get to P.A. school.) But the semester has been OK. Still adjusting a bit; I haven't found a great way to balance watching my son and studying while my wife works at night. We'll get there. It's a tough balance. I need to do homework. But I feel like I owe it to my son to play with him and be an involved father. Plus, I LOVE that kid and it's hard to ignore him for any length of time suitable for homework.
The weather is looking very Spring-like. As much as I NEED the 4 seasons, I am looking forward to Spring and those very comfortable 60 degree temps. I can't wait to get out and play a bit more.

Finally, it's Valentine's Day today. So, hug/kiss/fondle/squeeze somebody. And to my sweet wife: I love you, Baby!

Thanks, Marie. One day, I might be considered half the artist that you are.

Simply Cosas, that this couple looks so in love is a very nice compliment. They did seem to be very in love, but maybe I helped to capture that? Haha
I'm just an amateur. This was the first engagement shoot I had ever done. I was scared of it; so much pressure. At the end of it though, I was happy. Also, do I know you?
