Polyamory Triad Portraits

Hello summer and gorgeous Polyamory Triad Portraits! 

 

Before I introduce these polyamory triad portraits, I want to tell you a bit about my polyamory experiences! Back in 2017, I decided to explore polyamory. Late 2016, as I was finishing my memoir for publication, something just clicked. Maybe it was Daley and Logan’s wedding. They’re openly polyamorous and I found the concept so intriguing. Perhaps it was the fact that I always wished, in all of my relationships, that there was more freedom. Of course, that had a lot to do with partner choices, but it just felt like something worth exploring.

So in Feb 2017, I joined the local community and the rest, as they say, is history. The local polyamory community is a lot of things. A majority of my experiences involved toxic people, but the polyamory experience in and of itself was the best thing to ever happen to me. See, polyamory forces you to truly know yourself. Jealousy is normal and common, but you have to learn how to evaluate it and move through it. You have to learn how to become a better communicator, time management and discover what are needs and what are wants. It gave me space to do gender exploration, support for my trauma therapy, and just learn how to be myself. That’s even how I met Josh, so I don’t have any regrets exploring that part of myself and others.

It’s been an honor to help serve the polyamory community. In an industry still adjusting to LGBT couples, adding a third or fourth of fifth really throws people for a loop. However, I have a decent amount of experience at this point and frankly, I’d love more! I think all forms of relationships, commitments and orientations deserve beautiful moments in life and of course, deserve those moments to be documented.

Speaking of, here are these amazing Polyamory Triad Portraits. What is a triad? It’s when there are three people in a relationship. Sometimes, all three people date. Other times, like the one I’m about to show you, is a V, meaning two people date the same person but are just friends with one another. Harley and Sara are best of friends, which absolutely shows. Nate is a lucky dude and he knows it. We just walked around East Austin, finding inspo in different spots. It was a friggin’ blast!!!

So without further ado, here are some super fun Polyamory Triad Portraits. If you’re a fellow photog, I hope this gives some posing inspo! Just always keep in mind that it’s your job to keep things as equal as possible, regardless of the established dynamic of the triad.

Have a radtastic day!
