it’s so flattering when someone travels over 400 miles just for a photo shoot with me… even if it’s long lost family you have not seen in over a decade.  i’m still so honored.  so delighted to photograph active military families who have incredibly given themselves and sacrifice enormously for our nation.  they live with regular deployment, time away from their own family, with no guarantees and so much risk….. every military family deserves their memories, their legacies preserved forever.  now yes, this family is incredibly dear to me… the miles extend further and life gets so busy that years fly by before you know it… the little girl you watched grow from her momma’s womb has her own baby girl to watch grow.  ok, i feel old -ha.. but oh so blessed to have such beautiful people in my life.
