Jill and I grew up in the same town, went to the same high school, and were teammates on the same softball team. So, needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when she asked me to shoot her engagement photos! I couldn’t wait to meet Dan, see what he was like and see what they were like as a couple. We met in Hamden (our good old home town) at one of my new favorite locations (it also happens to be the location where I did my very own “Wear it Again” session!) the day after Thanksgiving for a chilly post-turkey e-session!
Jill and Dan compliment each other perfectly… they are so effortless and genuine in their interactions. After spending a few hours with these two it seemed like Jill had always been with Dan, I couldn’t picture her without him or vice-versa!
I might add Jill was a total trooper on this shoot, willing to do whatever it took for the prefect shot/location, hiking up and down hills 8 months pregnant – that’s right, ladies! – 8 months! …and Dan was such a gentleman helping her along the way. Since this shoot, Jill and Dan have welcomed their precious little baby girl into the world, Remy Madison (born 1/8/11, 6:03am, 7 lbs 2 oz)! And from what I can tell from the pictures on Facebook she as cute as a button and one lucky girl for having such rock star parents!
Okay, enough chatter – meet Jill & Dan (and Remy, too!)
Jill, you are stunning!! Way to totally kill it!!
Another favorite!! How cute are these two??? Seriously!
LOVE Jill’s antique ring!
I think this one is my favorite of the whole day…. don’t know why, but it just is.
J&D, SO much fun to shoot with you!!! I know you two are going to be amazing parents! Hope you love your images and I can’t wait to meet Remy soon!!! xo
