for this photo session. Well, technically they were here visiting family and friends but they had time to schedule a shoot in the midst of it all!
This family is a special one to me because I’ve known the Mama since 3rd Grade. We’ve kept in touch through the years, she was in my wedding, and I photographed hers. One of my favorite memories was when Mike, her husband, came home from Iraq to meet his little girl for the first time. I was crying large alligator tears behind my lens as I photographed him embracing his wife and new daughter. That day made my love of photography even stronger. Being able to capture that emotion and give it to them in a photo was intense.
So now they’re stationed overseas and I don’t get to see them quite as much but I was excited to schedule a fun family shoot when then visited this summer. Again, I’m a little behind on the blogging but it’s just because I have so many great sessions I want to share!
Having fun and getting a little goofy. Makes for great smiles!
My fav photo has to be the last one. Gorgeous light surrounded this beautiful little family and I had to capture it. Gave me goosebumps.
Now, if I could just talk my husband into scheduling a trip to Italy to photograph them next year! 🙂
