I’ve been able to do more military DC family sessions and they have been a ton of fun! I recently got to work with Sarah and Matt’s family. They have 3 adorable children aged 4 to 8 and we actually were connected because we both moved to VA from West Point. I enjoyed getting to know the kids better and observed how each child had a unique personality. Andrew, the eldest was able to morph into any pose, completely self-directed. In fact, he had the “power pose” I usually teach for corporate heads down pat – with no guidance at all! It just came natural to him. I suspect a highly influential leader will arise in the future! Kaitlyn – even though she was dolled up and looked like a princess – assured me she was NOT into girly things ;). Kaitlyn also had great posing ideas and I loved getting the running ones! Bryden reminded me of my youngest – a sweet, kind, loving and affectionate little guy- whose smile just melted my heart!
At the end of this special military family session I was embraced by all the kiddos and despite the crazy cold weather, my heart was warm and full! This is why I love my job! I hope that you all (Sarah, Matt and crew) continue to thrive here in the DC Metro and I hope that wherever the Army takes you next (Looks like CO!), I hope that it will have FAR LESS traffic, great hockey rinks, and plenty of friends to go around! Please keep in touch and I also hope that we might sneak a beach trip in before you all PCS! All the best! Michelle
