It has been a summer with a lot of weather challenges. Rain, wind, more rain...a typical Dutch summer. When the sun finally decides to come out the entire country dances, visits terraces and the beaches. When this session took place, nearly two weeks ago, we managed to squeeze it in before RAIN. We had a break of about two hours where rain was NOT expected. Hallelujah! This session was postponed twice! Thank you weather Gods...thank you!
Sharmaine, Alvin and I met up on a Saturday night in Het Park, Euromast Park. We planned to do half of the session there to catch a bit of the sun and then stop around Veerhaven for an outfit change and some moments and then finish off along the Maas with views of the Erasmusbrug, Erasmus Bridge. So excited! I was instantly struck by Sharmaine and Alvin's sweetness and the love they have for each other. They were so open and talkative. And when it comes to love...well...their love is beautiful to watch. They looked so lovingly at each other, hand in hand and praised each other. Pure, genuine, beautiful love.
Their love story began one year ago at a store Sharmaine was working in. Alvin stopped in to try on some jewelry and 'liked the jewelry so much' he came back a second time, the same day, to 'take another look'. After 'looking at the jewelry a second time' Alvin asked Sharmaine if she would be interested in having a drink with him. They eventually met up for drinks, exchanged messages and more dates and there they were. Together. They share a mutual love for fashion and travel. They head on an adventure to Shanghai this fall and their itinerary sounds amazing!
We navigated slowly through Het Park, laughed and chatted life. Sharmaine and Alvin trusted my vision and the only request was the Alvin had was an image of him holding Sharmaine in the air...ok! I had a difficult time narrowing down which images I wanted to share. Sharmaine and Alvin, thank you so much for your patience and being so easy to work with when it came to scheduling. I had the best time getting to know you and capturing memories with you both. I hope you love your images as much as I do! Have an amazing trip and I hope to work with you again soon! Hugs, Diana xo
