Jenn and I followed each other on Instagram and knew of each other through mutual friends for years before we finally met in person. We met at a park in Pasadena and while I was kid free that day, Charlie was with Jenn and after spending some time playing and chatting with them I remember going home that afternoon thinking Jenn is such a good Mom. That and Charlie has the sweetest face and voice in the world. There’s so much about Jenn that I admire. She’s so strong and full of grace. I met Pramin for the first time at our shoot and he’s such a wonderful father to Charlie and such a loving and supportive husband to Jenn. They make such a beautiful family (seriously, aren’t they all ridiculously good looking?) and I’m honored to have been able to photograph another photographer’s family!
And just a random tidbit. Charlotte/Charlie was on our top 3 list for Emmeline. We were actually pretty set on Charlotte until she was born and we both agreed that Emmeline was a better fit. It was months before Ellie stopped asking us what happened to baby Charlotte. We told many times her that we decided on a different name for her, but she was still adamant about the whereabouts of her baby sister named Charlotte.
