{ jen | a just because session }

An engagement, a wedding, a new addition to the family – all are wonderful opportunities to get in front of the camera and create some photos. But what about the in between times? I firmly believe in the importance of taking photos “just because” – to capture any given moment in your life, to celebrate the everyday. Jen was turning 29 and wrote me the most beautiful email about how she wanted just a simple beauty session, to create a time capsule for this particular moment in the last year of her 20s, so she {and her kids one day} could always look back on these photos. This past year was a big one for her – moving to Canada to be with her husband, being away from her family and friends, enduring various changes and challenges – and I’m overjoyed that she took this moment to celebrate coming through all of this with so much grace, to embrace a milestone birthday, and just carve out a small bit of “me” time. Although we wanted this session to focus on her, her sweet hubby Andrew came along and I was so happy I could capture a few of the two of them together as well :)

Also, that beautiful pocket watch necklace you see her wearing below? I swooned over it the entire session and at the end, she pulled out another one that she had bought as a gift for me! Seriously speechless.

Thank you so much Jen for giving me the chance to be a part of capturing all your beauty (both inside and out!) and this particular moment in your life. And if anyone is interested in a similar beauty session, please do contact me – this was such a rewarding and fun process to be a part of :)
