Let me preface this post by saying that I did not grow up in a military family, and have no idea the emotions that people go through when their loved ones deploy. However, I can say that after spending some time with this family less than a week before Mike deployed gave me some serious insight and amplified my appreciation for our military.
Elizabeth, a past co-worker of mine, orchestrated this session for her family as a gift before Mike deployed. It was raining when we got to Fort Monroe, but held off long enough to get some great shots of them all together.
