I had the privilege to photograph my friend Emily and her beautiful family while she and her husband were back home from overseas for two weeks R&R. They are BOTH currently serving our country in the Middle East. I can’t begin to imagine the difficulties and sacrifice involved in having to leave a child behind to fulfill their duties, and thankfully, they will be home for good in December. I am so grateful to them for their service, along with all of the other men and women courageously serving this country. I don’t think they were expecting to come back during our newfound Texas “monsoon” season, and neither was I! After a couple of reschedules and a location change, we managed to fit in a mini-session right before they left on a cloudy, misty morning. Little Madison had a lot of exploring to do, and I had a blast following her around. Thank you again Josh and Emily, and I’m looking forward to your return in December!
