I hadn't met the Senteno family before our session, but they were pros in front of the camera right off the bat! Look at these beautiful people!
Did I mention the Sentenos are a military family? I've found that military families have a certain kind of strength that the rest of us can't quite muster. Their love for each other is deeply loyal, fierce, enduring. Even though we'd just met, I could feel that strength emanating from this family; they are the real deal. It was truly an honor to witness that kind of love through my lens and document it for posterity.
It really was a joy wandering through the woods with this sweet family! Big sister Amelia was full of ideas for posing--I felt like I had an on-location creative director for our shoot! Fancy! ;)
There was plenty of pine cone collecting, flower-picking, and contest-winning...
...but mostly tons of good old fashioned play time! So much fun!
Carl, Laura, Amelia, and Eric, thank you ALL for your service to our country. My heart is full of gratitude.
