Tracy's husband is being deployed this month, so she wanted to surprise him with some photos to remember her by.
When she asked for something different, I asked her if she knew what her husband's favorite movie was. She told me it was "the Notebook" and I drew my inspiration from there. Not wanting to go for the obvious (kiss in the rain), I drew my inspiration from the county fair scene. There was something about those distant lights in the background that fascinated me, so I specifically included them, stringing up lights in the background of my shot.
For one of the shots, I handed Tracy a tablet and asked her to write a personalized message to her husband. The finished photos are sweet and endearing in all senses.
