April is the month of the military child. Why is this so important? Because children with a parent of in the military have such a unique upbringing. They face many challenges throughout their childhood. They grow up with many goodbyes, long partings, kinships/connections of extended family have many miles in-between and deal with everyday challenges that most people have never experienced. These children are resilient, adaptable and show a strength to be admired.
I have been waiting for this little peanut to come earth side up since this summer. I have been planing her session for months. Not only is she the beautiful baby of a fellow military spouse, she is the new sister to one of my sons friends. What makes this image extra special is that this stunning outfit was also created by a military wife from Pixel Weave Boutique.
This little beauty at nine days old made me work hard for my images as she had different ideas about how to spend a Saturday morning. But the images we did get make my heart sing.
Stay tuned for more images from her set.
