Heart of my Heart

It's Couper's Birthday! He is the very heart that my heart loves, and this post is my birthday ode to him for his 25th birthday. He is my striking husband, that I did not marry for my photographic convenience, although his modeling for lens/light testing (and just for fun) have worked out quite well for me (and him- ha!). 

I wish I could describe the depth of freedom, life, and love that has grown with our marriage- in spite of the harder things we've already walked through together. I understand this is not a typical thing, and I believe it's largely true because of him. He carries this innate desire to help me constantly. He is steady, so kind, and has this creative brilliance that I have had the honor to experience so closely. Understanding and freedom are tucked in his heart, and he sees people in a way I imagine Jesus would if He was walking the earth now. He's always learning, studying, teaching me- things related to character, faith, photography, travel, imbibing, cooking- it's an amazing gift of wisdom. If you know him, you know you are better for it. He makes all of us our best.

These are a few photos I've snapped of my favorite person- in different seasons and times. Some posed, some not. Either way he is handsome as everything. I love you, Couper Cox.
