Julian and Kaley | {Tacoma Couples Photography}

“Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…”
Julian and Kaley are bold….and they love each other without fear because they know that it is worth the wait!
Kaley was one of my seniors a few years ago and it was so fun to hear from her again as she was asking about doing a session when her boyfriend and she landed in the same state for just a short period of time!  Of course, we made sure it happened!Aren’t they cute together?  Julian is in the military and Kaley in college…so, there is distance between them physically…but, their hearts are close all the time!Love!We had some GORGEOUS light for our session…which we were so grateful for as just that morning the raindrops were dropping!  So typical of the Pacific Northwest that we love!These two had no problem forgetting that I was around….they completely understood that time was fleeting together and they were living in the moment!We headed down to the beach for the last of the light….my favorite time!Perfect!Kaley is just as beautiful as ever but she has become a woman!Julian is a quiet guy who loves Kaley so much!With distance you would think that electronics would be their way of contact…but, I love that they are letter writers!  Pen, paper, and all heart….it’s so special!
A beautiful relationship.
They met in high school and spent some time as just friends….always a great foundation.  It makes them so comfortable with each other!I love this image!  The night was fading….
But, their love was still shining!Kaley and Julian….I am so glad we fit this in on your visit to Washington!!  It was so good to see you again, Kaley, and to meet you, Julian!!  I am praying for safety and smooth travels for both of you!  Enjoy your letters!
