Happy Memorial Day

Every year I intend on getting down to the Veteran’s Cemetary to see the flags and this year I finally did it. Not as early in the day as I would’ve preferred, but then I don’t know if the flags are up at sunrise. ūüôā

I am so thankful to live in a country where we can enjoy so many freedoms.¬† I consider it an incredible blessing to have been born in the United States to a good family who loves me and to parents who did their best to raise me to be a good person.¬† I love travelling and find other countries fascinating, but it’s always good to return home the Land that I Love.¬† I am¬†thankful for those who¬†fight for our freedoms and stand up for what is right!

Michelle and Jose joined me on a rather windy evening. Ok, it was quite windy.¬† So windy,¬†at one point my chair blew over.¬† ūüėź¬†¬†This spring has been so windy, it’s almost unbelievable!!¬† Well, Michelle and Jose were good sports and put up with all my requests.¬†¬†Walking¬†half a mile while 36 wks pregnant… wardrobe changes…¬† pose here, pose there….¬†¬† and my¬†favorite: the “Wait! One more!” after I’ve already put my camera away.¬† Occasionally, ok maybe 50% of the time, I will see/think of¬†one more shot, but I’ve already said “we’re done” and packed away my camera.¬†¬†A few times, in my early days, I have brushed the thought aside and gone on home, only to wish I had taken that last shot, because I knew it was perfect and I was missing out on¬†one of the best shots of the session.¬†¬†Now, I’ve learned and if I¬†ever¬†get that Wait! One more! feeling, I absolutely listen to it and do it!¬† Otherwise, I go home to regret it.

Anyways, on to Michelle and Jose.¬† I¬†quite¬†like how the wind¬†adds a soft¬†playful and romantic feel as it blows Michelle’s hair.¬†¬†These two are expecting their first baby and the gender is a surprise!¬† Yay!¬† So¬†fun!¬† I can’t wait to see the little cutie that will fill those tiny shoes.¬†¬†Stay tuned for¬†a¬†newborn session¬†in a few weeks.
