This session really hit home for me.
Neil and Natalie are a military family. Neil serves in the US Army and Natalie stays home, here in Houston with their two small boys.
As a Veteran spouse turned contractors wife, I know the agony of saying "see you soon" all too well. Even more, Natalie informed me that they hadn't had family pictures taken in far too long. Neil left back for his duty station the day after our session.
I was both honored and heartbroken during our time together. The loving looks exchanged between this family were so deep, joyful, and heavy all at once.
Their beautiful boys; Nick and Kai are so incredibly heart warming, between playing photographers assistant, climbing on dad, hugging moms' neck, these boys were such a joy to be around.
