Jennifer and the photographer were spotted having a chat following the shoot and sipping on drinks together. 

The outing comes after Jennifer insisted that she doesn’t know if she will marry again and said: ‘I don’t know. I’m so far from it. And I don’t know that marriage would need to be a part.’ 

Speaking to People, she said: ‘I mean I definitely don’t think that I’ll be single forever. But this is not the time. I don’t need to complicate it; I’m good.’

Jennifer was most recently in a relationship with tech exec John Miller as they split in August 2020 after two years of dating. 

Jennifer’s divorce to Ben Affleck was finalised in 2018, nearly three years after the couple separated and almost a decade into their marriage. They wed on the beach in 2005 after he split from Jennifer Lopez.

Ben and Jennifer share co-parenting responsibilities of their three children: Violet, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine.

The star also revealed the last year of spending time quarantined with her children during the COVID-19 pandemic has taught her a lot about herself, saying: ‘I’ve learned that I’m pretty sturdy.

‘I’m okay when I’m in the house by myself. I’m okay when it’s just the kids and me. I’m okay when they fall apart. I mean I have my moments, but pretty much, I’m really okay.’

The A-list actress definitely did all that she could in breaking the monotony of staying home while bonding with her children as she said that she was ‘putting a lot of gusto in when I can and creating adventures when there are none.

She said: ‘Like we started shooting silly videos, which they got tired of before I did because I love the end result and having them forever. They started saying, “Yeah, Mom. No.”‘

Speaking to People , she said: 'I mean I definitely don't think that I'll be single forever. But this is not the time. I don't need to complicate it; I'm good'
