Welcome to THE LOVE SERIES
Welcome, friends, welcome!
THE PURPOSE OF THE LOVE SERIES EDITION
To give you the quick 411- this is a section of my blog dedicated to couples sharing their love story: how it all began, lessons they've learned, and the hope their future brings. I truly believe every single couple-- married or not, carries wisdom and truths. And because I focus my photography on knowing couples from the inside out, I believe other people should too.
I also like to share research here. Research that highlights the psychological benefits of having a happy & healthy relationship.
HOW AM I QUALIFIED TO BE WRITING THIS...
If you're wondering what the heck qualifies me as a love expert, my genuine and honest response is, well... nothing.
Let me explain: No, I'm not an expert on love, relationships, or human behavior. I'm not in the process of getting my PhD to become a researcher, and I sure as heck am not a licensed therapist.
If you are here instead to learn through the insights of other couples, research I've found through my own investigation of published academic articles, books, undergraduate and graduate education, and through my own marriage experience, well, then I'd say you're in the right place.
Through my bachelor's and graduate degrees in Family & Consumer Sciences and Educational Psychology, I've learned about the psychology of human behavior, relationships, and theories to which those apply. Through my years of teaching, my own marriage, and since becoming a photographer I've learned multitudes about connection, romance, and healthy relationships.
IS THIS STILL A PLACE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY?
This blog is my favorite place to marry photography and writing, since I love to write, take photos, and research.
