boy and girl

During the family portrait session, Jen's parents had taken their granddaughter a short distance away, leaving just Jeff + Jen left standing on the shore. And I could have watched them for hours.

Jen + Jeff... Jeff + Jen.

Suddenly, it was as if they were in their own little world. Relaxed & comfortable in one another's presence. Sharing looks, gestures and touches that were probably so familiar to one another.  The way her body curved towards his. And the way his hand reached towards her in response. It was magical.

And they probably had no idea they were doing any of that.

I have to admit, I fell in love with that moment a little bit. I love getting the opportunity to celebrate the couple within the family, and to see their relationship unfold before my eyes. To be able to see that they are not just mom and dad, but husband and wife...

and still just a boy and a girl.
