Oh Anna, you’re 2 today! When my clients children get older I feel just like I do when my little one get older- kinda sad. I remember taking Ryan & Jamie’s Maternity session, newborn session, Anna’s 6 months session, 1 year session and now she’s 2! (insert sad face here)
But this session is a bit different, Ryan’s serving nearly a year long deployment flying helicopters in Afghanistan. This is his third deployment but first as a dad.
I’m sure its not easy for Jamie to have her husband gone while taking care of things. I know its a struggle for him to be gone for many months at a time.
While Ryan is gone – just as its hard on Jamie its just as hard for Ryan- he misses the small things that others take for granted – Anna touching his face with those soft little fingers, placing her head on his chest, and just seeing those big blue eyes stare at him. I tried to not guide Anna too much during here session but just give Ryan a normal day in the life with his big 2 year old! See you this fall Ryan!
