Autumn and Steve contacted me with a very special request. Steve is in the military and had recently been sent from Georgia to Tacoma for a few weeks of training before his deployment to Afghanistan. He had been given a surprise 3 day leave and Autumn was planning on flying up to Seattle to spend the weekend with him. They had never had professional pictures taken, even though they’ve been married for over a decade, so Steve had decided it was about time.
I can’t say that I have ever been as touched by a photo session before. These two are so in love, and they endure so much. They have two sweet little kids at home and I hope these pictures can fill their house with images of their parents together. I have no idea what it would be like to have a husband in the military, but I have a huge appreciation for the sacrifices and heartache that families like Autumn’s are willing to endure. Autumn, I hope that you love these and that they keep you smiling through the months to come!
My fave shots are the first two. Isn’t Autumn beautiful?!
