Most photography sessions with Madi were shot at the beginning of Fall. This session was a fun one, though, because we took a break from the norm and shot some more patriotic photos. I find it humorous that this post is going out today. I've had it written for over a week. Now that the government has shut down, maybe we all need a reminder of what is beautiful in our country. I cannot help but believe that the sacrifices our troops make are made so that children such as Madi can grow up in a country that is worthy of them.
