The Buckmaster Family is back!

I was so happy to be able to squeeze in a weekend session for this great family. I’m good friends with their daughter, Lynsie. I photographed her wedding and you’ve noticed plenty of pictures on the blog of little Grayson.
Well, it was extremely important to get these portraits taken this month because Lynsie’s husband, Matt, is in the National Guard and will be deployed at the end of the month.
I just don’t know how she does it. He was in the service already when they met and he had to leave once already after they were married only a year (if I remember right). I admire her and him so much, for their strength and bravery. I want to thank, not just Matt, but Lynsie too… and little Grayson for the sacrifices they make to keep our country safe.
I am so thankful for being able to choose my own religion, and practice it openly. To live in my home and feel safe.
This morning was the tear-filled leaving ceremony where many amazing families, just like Matt and Lynsie’s, were saying “Goodbye for now.” I’ll be praying right along with them that every single one of those men and women comes home safe and sound.
All my love,
