I was so excited when Troy asked me if I could help him take a couple of photos of him and his family! As some of you may remember, I had the chance to photograph his proposal last year!

He knew that I generally turned down freelance gigs because I always felt like I was being taken advantage of, so he really went out of his way to make sure this photoshoot went well for me. 

He gave me full creative control, offered to pay me a fair rate, helped me book a studio and even provided me with transportation.

On top of that, his fiancĂ©e, grandma and kids were so easy to work with. How did I get so lucky with this opportunity!?!? 

It was also great to finally catch up with him! Even though I love working from home, I really do miss our daily chats in the office.

Troy, thank you again for being so supportive of my work and even letting me share them on my blog! You and your family have definitely ignited my passion for photography again.
