Chance and I wanted to give away make up and photography during the 4th of July holiday to a military service member. Desiri sent us an email with her beautiful entry detailing she and Henry's military service and their love for one another despite distance due to their service to our wonderful country. Despite all of the struggle, they are engaged and planning a wedding. Desiri and I met with her daughter at the mall before the session to get some outfits for the family. It was so fun coordinating, going through dresses and finally decided on the mint and pink for her. Of course, her daughter had to get a few new things too. And Desiri could not go empty-handed for the boys. :)
The day of the session, we travelled to 2 Dye 4 Salon and Spa in Largo, Florida to get hair and makeup completed by Chance and Matt and his fabulous team. Desiri felt like a princess as her nails, hair and make up were expertly applied in the salon and her daughter had her hair finished; we drove to the Florida Botanical Gardens. We were able to capture family photos with the three kiddos. We captured engagement photos for the couple. We finished at the Garden and headed to Indian Rocks Beach. Chance's team was with us the entire time making sure Deseri looked her best. She felt like a princess.
We are grateful for Henry and Desiri's service to our wonderful country and we wish them our warmest congratulations on their engagement. Chance and are so glad that we were able to make a special day for those that serve in our military. We wish to thank everyone that serves in our military and keeps us safe at home.
