I took Marcus’ senior photos a few years ago, and boy does time fly! The thing I remember most about my photo shoot with Marcus, was what a wonderful heart he has. He really is one of the most mature, well-spoken, kindest senior boys I have ever photographed and definitely one of my favorites! Since taking his photos way back when, I’ve also added on his sister Jessica’s beautiful family, including her adorable little girls Lexie and Gracie, to my list of favorite clients! The photo below/left is of Marcus and is sweet little niece Lexie. What a lucky little girl she is, to have such a cool uncle!
Recently I received a call from Marcus and Jessica’s Mom, asking if I could pull off a last minute photo shoot, that would include the rest of the siblings as well. This photo session was particularly touching to me, because it was being done on account of Marcus’, and the fact that the next day he would be leaving for the Military for 5 years.
I can not put into words how loving this family is. Mom and Dad have been married for almost 30 years and have done such an amazing job raising such a caring and tight-nit family, something I think we all pray for with our own little families! I know this photo shoot was particularly hard for them, knowing that Marcus was leaving the next day and it will be awhile before they get to hug him again. But for all the sacrifices Marcus and his family will have to make in the next few years, I must take this moment to say “thank you” ! You are truly an amazing soul Marcus, and you will be in my thoughts and prayers as you train and become a part of something, that is set up to protect me and my family!
Everyday, and every time I have the opportunity to photograph and capture time, I truly realize the impact my job has and what an honor it is for me to document these moments. Please enjoy the slide show of the photo session below and send out a little thought or prayer for Marcus, his family and all other military personnel, that work so hard to keep our country safe!
