Several months ago I met Kim and her beautiful daughters at a football party. Right away she mentioned that she loved my photos and I was surprised that she had ever even seen my website. She mentioned that she would love to have a family session sometime, and the conversation changed and we never really discussed pictures. Then I noticed her youngest had been following my husband Scott, taking care not to get too close, but also not to get too far away. Now, If you know my husband, you know he isn’t a kid magnet, he doesn’t do silly voices or have much animation, so I was surprised that being so little she would be so interested in him. When I mentioned to Kim that her daughter seemed to have taken a liking to Scott, she said that her husband was in the military and was serving overseas, so she probably thought Scott resembled her daddy in some way. My heart melted and I spent the rest of the evening talking to her about her amazing family and the sacrifice they were making. Her husband, Soren, had left life as we know it and volunteered to serve our country.
We became facebook friends and I kept in touch watching all the pictures she uploaded of the kids and a big cardboard cutout of their daddy that affectionately named “Flat Soren.” Flat Soren even attended the daddy/ daughter dance. When Soren arrived safely back on US soil I was so happy for them, and so excited to take pictures of their beautiful family.
Kim & Soren, Thank you so much for sharing your family with me, and thank you for your service to our country and for all that you scarified. You are appreciated.
This furry family member is BAM… He likes to hang out.
