Today the weather was perfect in our NC Mountains. We had a full day planned and that included crouching around in the woods like tigers to catch a marriage proposal. Our littles went with us because we had plans to take them to Tweetise after the shoot. Taking our kids to sessions is definitely not the norm but Ryan insisted they would do great, and they did awesome! After our lunch picnic we placed them where at least one of us could see them but be sure they were out of site of Jack and Emily. These kids took it so serious they whispered for 40 minutes even when we said we will tell you when you have to be quiet. They were part of the day so we had to include them in some of these images =). Ryan placed himself in a rhododendron bush with a camo net over his face and body. I got so tickled at him (picture below). We separated so we would be sure to have different angles depending on where Jack stopped. When I heard Emily's voice coming I got all excited...I love surprises! These kind of images are a lot of times our favorite! Real moments. Real Emotions. Once we got the proposal and came out of hiding, we went back to where Emily's parents were grilling out. Congratulations you two! We are excited for you both!! MUCH love.
