Elizabeth and Jake: Engaged

Elizabeth and Jake’s engagement session is particularly special because it incorporates Elizabeth’s great-grandmother and grandmother. Photographer Erin Jean explained:

Elizabeth’s grandma hand quilted a “wedding ring” quilt in the 1920’s for her future great-granddaughter.  That’s the quilt they are laying on.  They are also playing with her grandmother’s camera.  She was an amateur photographer and even started a photography club in Wisconsin long ago!

Wow! What an incredible gift from her great-grandmother! I think that incorporating personal elements and heirlooms like these are a very personal way to add meaningful details into your photographs. Special thanks to Erin Jean Photography for sending over such a beautiful shoot!
