These two are puzzlers. I made that word up, because a person who does jigsaw puzzles is actually called a dissectologist (thank you very much, Google), and dissectologist just makes me think of that time with the frogs in 9th grade when I almost threw up.
So! Puzzlers they are. And photographing and editing their engagement session got me thinking a lot about how the act of doing puzzles is a bit of a metaphor for life’s journey, right?
Sometimes it’s really frustrating and hard to make the pieces all fit together. We’re juggling so many things and have to make it all work somehow.
Sometimes we have to take a break from the hard parts and get back to them when we can think more clearly.
And sometimes it’s more fun to go at the challenge with someone else. A friend, a lover, a sharer of your joys and sadness. When you have someone else to help you, someone to share with you, it makes it a whole lot more fun.
And that excitement and feeling of accomplishment when you put that final piece into place – whew! That’s a good feeling.
Leah and Denise were happy together our whole session – from a walk in the park to cooking together, puzzling, and just being together. It was a great day. And they have surely found their perfect fit.
