I was so excited when April asked me if I was available for a photo shoot with her and Michael. I took their engagement and wedding photos, and had so much fun working with them. We decided to meet in downtown Jackson for this shoot, only steps away from where we took some of their engagement photos. I'd never done a shoot like this before and I was SO NERVOUS that I would say or do something to spill the beans. This wasn't just your average family/anniversary/couple shoot. This was April's way of telling Michael that he was going to be a dad. :)
April suggested to Michael that they take photos of a board listing reasons why they loved each other, and take photos presenting the boards to each other. Michael's list of why he loves April made me smile so big, and the whole time I was just thinking dude, this is about to get crazy, you have no idea.
I cried. I have no problem admitting that.
Michael was COMPLETELY surprised, and SO happy. You never really know how people will react to these things, and it was wonderful to watch Michael react in such a beautiful way. He kept saying "this is the best day!"
