File this one under: Best Mom In The Great State of Texas. Ann Janssen secretly commissioned us to photograph a portrait of her daughter Meagan’s most treasured stuffed animal.
“Mr. Monkey” has been with Meagan her entire life– road trips, college, destroyed by the family dog, sewn back together, and laundered more times than you could count.
Meagan recently graduated with her Masters Degree from Villanova and moved into her first home. Ann surprised her with the photograph as a housewarming gift. “I thought a beautiful piece of art was very grown-up and reflected a new stage in her life, but also reflected a part of who she was,” Ann said.
