I have many military families that come my way. Most of them are transplants from some place else and some are only in the area for a shot time. I enjoy working with people from all over and doing newborn photography for Fort Bragg. I also get a number of clients who were born and raised right here in the Sandhills. This fabulous family is neither – they are from West Virginia and chose to move here to raise their family.
I first met them back when big brother turned one. I have captured him around his birthday each year. This year his birthday session was also a maternity session. And, then, a few months later, the whole family – now a family of four – joined me in the studio.
I have incorporated military uniforms into sessions and it was a pleasure to use Dad’s fireman uniform in some portraits. Baby D fit perfectly into dad’s pocket and his helmet. Perfection.
My style is simple, timeless and classic, but incorporating important items from your family are what make your session unique and yours.
Thank you, Ellis Family, for letting me capture your new addition!
