Meet Maria and Adrian. I would like to show off their multi-lingual abilities, but realize this might be a sensation for us Americans alone. After all, most Europeans that I have encountered are at least trilingual. Nevertheless, Maria and Adrian are worldly. Setting even this aside, these parents of three have a trusting partnership that enabled Maria to pull off the surprise couple’s shoot with ease. We set the scene in rainy Brussels — at the Galerie du Roi — and she eagerly awaited his timely arrival for a “mystery day”.
Granted, Adrian thought he would be driving Ferraris and other exotic sports cars — not so, dear Adrian! He handled the surprise graciously and the two quickly relished in the session that they’d been hoping for.
Belgian chocolate at the infamous Mary store? Need I say more?
Each couple that I work with finds their own comfort and forgets about my presence within minutes. See how the rest of our Brussels afternoon and evening progressed. It was a wonderful way to see the “inside” of Maria and Adrian’s life.
Thanks again to Claire Morgan for another amazing European adventure. Finally, please check out Maria Lind Photography on Facebook, as Maria is doing some amazing photojournalistic work with children and families in Belgium!
