I first met Maura and Bobby when they drove down from Claremont, NC for their maternity session in Huntersville. It is flattering and such an honor when expecting parents make a 1+ hour drive to come to me for photos. They were the sweetest couple....high school sweethearts. Bobby serves in the National Guard and told me he was expecting to be deployed a few months after their baby boy arrived.
Later that fall, sweet Henry arrived and they all joined me in my studio for his newborn session. Henry is Mr. Good Looking giving me a couple of money shot smiles and super cool poses. I am ALWAYS months behind in blogging sessions (shooting and editing always come first!), hence the fall and Christmas props (no, I don't put baby's in sleighs in May).
I love military families and am in awe of their many sacrifices. Perhaps the greatest of which is leaving a new baby to serve our country. I will happily include a complimentary mini milestone studio session for any of my newborn clients with a deployed parent.
