I couldn’t think of a better way to start Veteran’s Day than at sunrise with this military family who’s given so much in service to our country. Add the fact that they were glowing with beauty, inside and out, and styled to perfection by mom, Jackie, it was kind of a dreamy shoot. I definitely came home smiling.

As I step back and reflect on this session, one thing sticks out in my mind as a favorite part of my time with the Luces. Watching Rick and Jackie interact was such a gift to me. After ten years of marriage and three kids it’s clear that there is still a spark between them. More like a flame. I’m not sure why it hit me so hard… maybe it was listening to Rick sing Jackie’s praises again and again: “Everyone smile and say ‘We love Mommy'” “Wasn’t this a great idea Mommy had?” “How do we look? I mean I know Jackie looks good, you can’t fix perfect.”  Or maybe it was the way Jackie beamed with each loving comment and the way she laughed in his arms.  I’m sure they’ve had  hard times, every marriage does, but they have certainly put effort into those little daily expressions of love that really make a difference. They are confident in their love, and it was a beautiful thing to witness. I’m grateful for their example that has given me the chance to reflect on my own marriage and how I’m contributing my own expressions of love.

Thank you Luce family for being a light in this world, I can’t imagine I’m the only one who’s been bettered by your goodness. It was such a pleasure getting to capture you at this stage life.
