Celebrating Flag Day!

I spent my flag day photographing one of our Nation's finest heroes' new 
addition to his little family. I can't think of a better way to celebrate! 
Such a beautiful family and an amazing story of love and sacrifice. 
This amazing soldier daddy barely made it home in time for the birth of his 3rd son. 

What an amazing example he is to his 3 sons. I loved the saying their mommy showed me in their play room. It said "Some people don't believe in Heroes...They haven't met My Dad!" There is no question their daddy is a Hero! Look at the way those boys look at their dad! Priceless! 

Such a sweet moment captured for these two. 

And of course...who can resist a newborn yawn? 
This amazing soldier sets off, back to Afghanistan on Wednesday to finish 
9 more months of service. 
We look forward to seeing you in 9 months for some welcome home photos...cause I know getting your picture taken is your very favorite thing! :)

I am so grateful this family let me be a part of such an important event in their lives.
And of course a special thanks to my very favorite photography side kick and BFF, Jenn :)

Wow, the tears are rolling on this one!

I love the picture of the dad and his three boys. I sure hope that's going to be life size in their home!

I was told to get Easton's picture with Jared in his uniform since Easton was born on a military base etc. I didn't. Now I have regrets.....

great job Kati!

These are gorgeous! Someone told me to get photos of our little one when she arrives with my hubby in his uniform. Was debating it, now I will definately do it! Gorgeous! And a big Thank YOU to this wonderful soldier and his family! We've done two deployments (12 months and 15 months) so I know the strain it can cause on a family. Thank you! My prayers are with you and I look forward to seeing photos of your Welcome home!
