I don't usually photograph teens, but I had to make an exception for this family. Jen and Meghan live down the block from us, and we've been friends since we first moved here. Anyways, I liked Jen right away and my girls love Meghan! I love that I get to see them often and we are getting to be better and better friends all the time.
Well, back in August at one of our block parties, Michael told me that he wanted to get a family session for Jen for her birthday. I thought that was such a sweet gift, especially because Jen hasn't had professional photos since Meghan was two. Later on, Michael told me that he wanted to propose to Jen at the family session. When I pulled on my ear, Meghan was to tell Michael, "Michael, if you were going to propose to my mom, now would be the time to do it?". When Jen heard her, she was kinda horrified that her daughter would say that, but then turned around to see Michael down on one knee. It was so incredible to have gotten to see my friend so beyond happy, so ecstatic, that this one will go down as one of my favorite shoots.
Here is the photo story of the session.
p.s. Isn't Jen gorgeous?
