Bridal Portraits With Mother, With Mother's Dress

Hey everybody!

It's not every day that I leave a shoot and think, that was something really special. Sure, I photograph new babies, proposals, and weddings... and all those are special moments and momentous occasions. But when I left Jennifer's bridal session, it was a different kind of special.

I've known Jennifer for years (as I've told you before)... and I've known her mother for years - they both came to Jennifer's senior portrait session years and years ago. They both are amazing women and I am blessed to know them. But what is truly special about this session is that I was able to capture the relationship of mother and daughter in a very powerful time in both their lives.

I don't need to discuss the personal journey Jennifer's mother has been on during the past few months, but I do want to say that I love photography because I'm able to record moments and memories like these that live on for children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to see. These pictures are precious to me, and I hope they are precious to Jennifer and her mother as well.

This is Jennifer in her mother's wedding dress. So special.

Talk to you soon,
