The couple had six children, of which four survived.

In 1872 they moved to Freiburg where they met the landscapist Emil Lugo, who made 50 plates for their book on the surroundings of Freiburg and the Black Forest. When the Jensens moved to Munich Lugo accompanied them, and when they spent summers in Fraueninsel, he accompanied them as well.
