        For the second time in a row, family photos at Manassas Battlefield went completely cloudy after a full day of clear sunny skies. It’s killing me!

        Fall is in full swing meaning, I need light for color! Thankfully we got a whopping minute and 30 seconds toward the end. It was scramble do “redo” some of the games we started with, just for the light!

        Mom prepared me that little mister was her shy guy. I was ready to really work some magic to crack his shell, but I never needed it! He loved my toilet jokes and games! It was so good to see another little dude want to marry his mama. Melts my heart!

        Mama melted my heart before we even met. They had been in Okinawa with us (although we never met) but Dad was never home long enough to put a session on the schedule. #dontmissthosedays She said she just had to get photos done since we were in the same area again. Talk about making me blush!

        Also, I love the Marine Corps. Have I mentioned that?

        Side note: Some divisions of the Marine Corps have stunning Instagram accounts! III MEF in particular has a great one. Their images are done by Marines from Combat Camera who attend a year long program at Syracuse University as part of their training. #jealous 🙂 @marines of course has excellent imagery and @3dmlg_marines is also excellent.
