Meet the Shea Family!
At the risk of dating myself, do you remember that moment in Jerry Maguire when Tom Cruise made that long-winded speech declaring his love and Renee Zellweger said simply, "You had me at hello."? The Shea Family had me at "hello."
I have a deep, abiding respect for military families and the profound sacrifices they make to serve our nation. I'm delighted to have the opportunity to say in my own small way: THANK YOU!
Here are some snippets from the Sheas' note:
"Hello! [yes, she really did begin the letter with "hello!"] I found your blog from the "i heart faces" blog... We are a family of 5 that just recently moved to 29 Palms, CA due to my husband being in the U.S. Marines. I do photography as a hobby and I'm in no way a professional; I just enjoy using my camera and trying to capture good images of my boys. However, there are tons of photos of my boys and there are only a few with me in the actual photo. We have never had a professional photography shoot and I have always wanted one ... I would love to have a photo session to send to our families back home, since they don't get to see us that often, they would enjoy getting photos of our family..."
Sheas- I can't wait to get busy shooting! I just hope I can master the intricacies involved in photographing a family with three active boys before our session! [very big grin]
Many thanks to all who entered and shared their story with me...
