This morning I was honored to be able to photograph the deployment of the Minnesota National Guard unit based in East St. Paul, specifically a family that I did a photo shoot for a few weeks ago. These soldiers and their families are heroes; they give up so much for our country...we can't thank them enough.
It was tough to watch this family say goodbye. I am already looking forward to their homecoming!
M & M, thank you so much for letting me a part of this special day. It was a privilege and blessing to me to be a part of it. I will be praying for safety and peace for you during the next year.
