Senteno Family Portraits (Ocean Springs Family Photographer)

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...
