What started as a dog photo shoot turned into a PROPOSAL!

Y'all, today I got to do the most fun photo shoot that I've been looking forward to all week, but couldn't tell anybody. Jayce Adams had told his girlfriend, Caroline, that they were coming out to do pictures with their puppy, but really, the intention of the photo shoot was for him to propose! Jayce planned it out with me on the phone, and this afternoon was the day. We spent the first hour doing pictures of Mylo, their very cute Goldendoodle little girl. In the meantime, my husband helped get both Caroline's and Jayce's parent in place on the woods line by the hay field so they could watch. Caroline wanted this one dog picture of Mylo facing the camera while she faced away, and Jayce had told me that would be when he would do it.

When we came from the creek, where we started, up to the hay field, first we HEARD the parents talking! They were pretty loud, so Jada, Jayce's sister, and I started talking even louder to cover up their voices. Caroline didn't hear them. Then I saw the parents walking down from the woods line to get a little closer, so I had to point at a spot opposite from them and say "Hey, Caroline! What if we did some pictures over there!?" Once again, she didn't see them.

I know Jayce was nervous, but I was shaking myself! We got Caroline in place, Mylo over her shoulder, and I signaled to Jayce that it was time. He walked over, said her name, and got on one knee. And that's when Caroline lost it. Then, after she said yes, her dad whooped from the woods, and here came the whole family. Her brother, Rhett, had traveled in from Minnesota for this, and she screamed "My BROTHER is here!"

Toasting, laughter, pictures, and phone calls followed, all in the middle of the hay field. Plus, it was such a beautiful evening for all this. Thanks, Jayce, for making my day go from good to great, and letting me be such a part of a big event in your life!
