{The Portrait Diaries} Day 21: Spot the difference?

Day 21

These photos of my lovely better half were taken for a black and white portrait challenge happening in a photography group I am part of.  I took a few and it was fairly easy to pick out these two as the best options to make black and white but I found it so hard to decide which picture I prefer. I’m getting much better at this but I get so emotionally attached to images of people I know that I find it harder to be subjective.

They are so similar and yet so different. I did manage to make a decision but I won’t tell you as I’m intrigued to know which you like best. While I work on my indecisiveness, let me know what you think?

{You+Me} Maya & Pat

This was definitely one of my favourite shoots of the year so far. I shared the sneak peek with you a while back but I couldn’t resist sharing some more of my favourites, especially now that the sun has officially arrived and I’ve been visiting the beach again after a damp and rainy April.

Maya & Pat had their You+Me shoot in various locations in Herne Bay and we had so much fun. We walked & talked, ate homemade cake & shared bad jokes. It honestly felt like we’d known each other for years and they made it super easy to get some lovely shots of them because they’re always smiling and laughing.

Maya is off to America for the summer so I hope that these photos will remind them of good times while they are oceans apart.I know for sure that Pat will have a huge smile on his face when Maya’s back! Thanks for such an awesome day guys, you rock!

Without further ado, here’s Maya & Pat’s You + Me shoot. Aren’t they just the cutest couple?
