Richard contacted me on Friday about scheduling a couples portrait session for him and his wife Michelle. Richard and Michelle are both in the military and are currently at separate bases (Michelle is here in Florida and Richard is in flight school up in Missouri). Because they only get to see each other every few weeks, Richard thought he would surprise his wife with a portrait session while he was here in town. Isn’t that the sweetest thing ever?!? Richard was leaving on Monday afternoon, and originally wanted to do the shoot on Sunday, but I was already scheduled for an all day event so we decided to squeeze it in first thing Monday morning before he left.
We met up at 8am in Lettuce Lake Park just North of Tampa. It figures it was THE COLDEST morning we’ve had since I’ve moved here at an almost freezing 34 degrees. These two were troopers (no pun intended!!) though and toughed it out like total champs.
Thanks to these two for #1 being so incredibly sweet and adorable, and #2 for sacrificing their time together in order to serve our country. I hope you guys get to be together soon!
