Cape Cod Photography: True Love

Sometimes love lasts a lifetime. What a beautiful thought that is. I was lucky enough to photograph these two young lovebirds with their family this summer in Hyannisport. While I was taking their portrait I noticed that their hands were intertwined so beautifully, like they obviously had been countless times before, and I knew that their whole story could be told through that photo.

How Do I Love Thee?
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
 

 

 

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. 

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. 
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; 
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. 

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. 
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath, 
Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose, 
I shall but love thee better after death.
