Daddy & Daughter {Military Shoot}

October 09, 2012  •  8 Comments

Meet Alan, an FMF Corpsman in the US Navy, and the apple of his eye, Faith, his 16 month old daughter.  For a couple of hours one afternoon recently, we let Faith play at a setting that was perfect to celebrate their pride for the red, white and blue and document the relationship of this Navy Father and his little one.  During our afternoon together, we went back in time at this historical venue, walking around and visiting the old vintage buildings at the Mint Hill Historical Society.  Faith's mom told me when she contacted me about scheduling the father/daughter session, that she had a perfect little dress that matched her dad's uniform. I couldn't agree more!  I love the "feel" of this session, beautiful pictures of a true American family!!! 

 

Oh, this first image... No words necessary.

This is another favorite of mine.Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 379e This next shot is too cute.  Alan had picked this rose for Faith and when she went to "smell it", this was the expression we got!Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 260e Something about this next picture just gets to me.Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 424e Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 513e In talking with this family, they were telling me about where all this lighter had been with him.  Right by his side, this lighter has been to more that 14 countries, with him during Operation Iraq Freedom from 2003-2006 and then again in his pocket while in training at Fort Bragg when the towers came down on September 11th, 2001.Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 558e And now a close up.Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 551

I'll leave you with this picture... It was funny, I looked over at one of the picnic tables just before we left and saw this little creature sitting atop sporting his pride too!  I'm not sure which one of them dressed him like this, but I thought it was too cute not to share.Alan Jodi Daddy daughter 547

Thanks again Alan and Jodi for asking me to capture this time with your family!

Okay, for some reason I obviously haven't been seeing your links on facebook because I've missed a ton of posts! These are priceless! They remind me of WWII images, I guess because of the naval uniform, it's one you don't see that often. And her dress is precious! Molly, you have a knack for capturing the little details and I love seeing it!

These are priceless pictures Molly, and I am sure this family will treasure them! I especially love the one where she is looking so deeply in her daddy's eyes while they are swinging.
