Tonight I am officially launching this blog! I am so excited that I was able to customize it to complement my official website. I hope you enjoy my work and come back often to visit while this new chapter is written :]
I thought it would only be appropriate to re-visit the pre-deployment pictures I took with my husband a year ago. They were taken the day before he left for his deployment to Afghanistan. It was shortly after our anniversary, and so I wanted to take them where we had our little wedding at Wegerzyn Gardens.
I would love to do more photo sessions in this style… seeing our men in uniform is just about as good as it gets!
I ruined the dress by sitting on some dark berries in an attempt to immortalize the shoes I had painted. I think it was worth it.
It was early September and a very unusually hot day. We laughed about having our winter coats on, but he was a good sport.
This was the last shot, taken after we were “done” and our way to the car. We were anxious to get back to our son, but I’m glad this one was taken.
My mother-in-law took this at Rock’s basic training graduation four years ago. When he was deployed I turned it into a vintage portrait. I didn’t mind looking at his face on pictures since they were all I had. It’s part of the reason I am so obsessed with taking pictures! I understand their value. â™«
Your work is impeccable, candid, gentle, honest, and vulnerable. You inspire me.
