It's hard enough to watch your child grow up and graduate high school, but I cannot image what it's like to be the mother of a son or daughter who is entering the military upon graduation. I was asked to shoot some photos of Jake and his four very beautiful sisters two days before he departed for basic training. I've done sessions for military families in the past and each time I do them, I convince myself that I will not get emotional! But that's never the case...especially when you see mom and sisters get teary eyed. <3
Jake is currently in Boot Camp and then will complete his Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) Training as a Combat Engineer. For an eye-opening description of what that entails, click here. I know Jake is deeply missed by his family and friends, but I also know that he will make them all proud! So keep him and all of our incredibly selfless military personnel in your thoughts.
