For years I have known Sarah.  As in 14 years to be exact.  Her momma took a chance on this young girl and hired me at a local credit union fresh from a horrendous retail job.  I was looking for something stable, something with set hours, set co-workers, and I was feeling the pressure to find something fast.  At a pay rate to the tune of $7.50 an hour I started my career as a teller where I could get benefits such as insurance, paid time off, and the fact that I didn’t have to work holidays or on Sundays.  Those are pretty big to a girl who was working all of the time filling in the worst time shift because no one else would.

Not only that, I learned about investing, lending, balancing, and being smart about money.  I make dumb mistakes (we all do!), but I’m so much better off having had this path in life.  I grew hungry and wanted to learn more and grow more and be more.  All in all I grew up there.  It never would have happened without her sweet momma seeing a spark in me.

Want to know something else?  Something extremely crucial to this story??  If her momma hadn’t of taken this gamble on a young girl who had no direction other than to work – I’m going to have to stop as I tear up…  Let me try this again…  If her momma hadn’t of taken a GAMBLE on this young girl with no direction or vision for her life other than to work, I would have NEVER EVER NEVER met my husband.  Ever.  You see there are a chain of events that while they are happening you can’t see.  I met Sean at that very office where I had a second interview for a position I desperately needed to get out of a horrible retail job.  Sean and I made small talk at that office.  We would throw passing flirts at that office.  We laughed at that office.  I remember walking to my new car that I had just bought (at the dismay of my parents – a dumb mistake!) as he yelled out the window of his big black truck asking me where I was heading while at the window of the drive-thru.  It never would have happened without her sweet momma seeing a spark in me.

And one of the secrets I hold near and dear to my heart and the only person who I’ve ever told this to would be my sister – I knew long before Sean and I were serious that we were going to get married.  I knew he was the one.  We had dated for maybe 2 or 3 months and he broke up with me…  a second time.  A few months later he came back in after avoiding me and asked if he could call me.  Broken on the inside but being the tough girl on the outside I shrugged and said, “Sure.”  As he walked back outside to his truck a voice deep down inside said, “You’ll marry him one day.”  Of course I also responded with a “that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve EVER thought”.   It never would have happened without her sweet momma seeing a spark in me.

To say that being asked to be this young lady’s wedding photographer is an honor is probably THE understatement of the year.  I owe so much to her momma.  So much.

Without further ado, Sarah and Josh’s engagement session.

I love, love, LOVE meeting new families and adding them to the Jenn Brown VIP list!  It is just so much fun to learn about them and what they are doing in their lives.  Last Saturday I got to meet the Baquet family for the first time and I have to say that their little girls were adorable!
