Sarah and her family hold a special place in my heart. They came into my life in the beginning of 2013, just before Jake went on deployment. We had their Pre Deployment OpLove session at Fort Monroe, and Sarah had on some FABULOUS sparkly heels that I drooled over. Then while Jake was deployed, we had a Doctor Who themed session for the boys at the Adam Thoroughgood House. I must say the boys were dashing! It was quite eventful since during the session, they were beating the wisteria with their light sabers (yes, it totally happened!) and caused my allergies to go haywire. To this day, Sarah and I joke about how the boys almost put me in the hospital that day. On the day that Jake returned from deployment, I was fortunate to be there as well. As emotional as homecomings already are, seeing Jake reunite with Sarah and the boys melted me heart.
Fast forward to this year, I get a message from Sarah that Jake was retiring, and she asked me to be their photographer. Of course I said yes, they were like family to me! The day finally came, and boy, was it a wonderful day. There were many tears and laughter, needless to say, there couldn't have been a dry eye in the house. Jake, Sarah, Liam, and Maddox, I love you guys so much! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives and special memories. In this crazy military life, I am thankful to have found awesome friends like you that have turned into family.
