Family of 4 + 1 Furry Friend

This family session was an honor for me to be part of . It’s been in the works since back in November 2008 when Mark & Petra found out Mark would be deployed to Afghanistan within the next year. Mark proudly serves in the USMC. His family is so supportive and strong. They know the routine since Mark has been deployed three times now. They haven’t had family photos since the kids were little. Now they will always have these to cherish!

A beautiful family…

Dad…Marine, Husband, Provider & much more-

Mom…Wife, Heart of the Family, Friend & so much more…

I love how relaxed their furry friend Sierra got while we were taking these. I think she thought it was her own personal photo shoot! (click to enlarge)

“Everybody around dad please!”

Ben-you may remember him from this senior photo I took of him last year.

Kaatje-I love her pretty smile!

I don’t think I’ve ever met a more connected & loving family!

“H” Family,

I wish you all strength to endure the next several months. I am so happy you will have these photos to look at and cherish for all of time. Thanks for a great time & being such an inspiring family!
