Recently I was contacted by Courtney in need of family pictures. Her wife Korrine is currently stationed onboard the USS John C. Stennis, so we needed to move quick to get the session done before her next underway period. For those who haven't had the privilege (sarcasm) of dealing with US Navy ship movements an underway period can be weeks or months. They use this time to qualify and test the crew before deployment. These can become tiresome because the deployment hasn't even started and they are already spending months on end away from their loved ones!
Anyways, back to the session and pictures with Courtney's family. After emailing back and forth we settled on Kitsap Memorial. Honestly, if you haven't been there please go. There are so many beautiful spots that it seems never-ending. They also had loved the location that is currently my cover photo on my Facebook page and thankfully they are pretty close in terms of location. All I can say is if I were to gauge what the session would be like from the first 5 seconds it would sum up the whole shoot. Little Miss Aela ran right out of their car and gave me a hug. She had a huge smile and it honestly never left her face.!
