Three years ago I received an email from a kind woman inquiring about horseback riding lessons for her daughter. Little did I know at the time just how important these four people would become to me. Not only is Brynn an amazing rider, she is a phenomenal young woman. Smart, beautiful, driven and kind. And she is one heck of a big sister to miss Ava, who is possibly the happiest little girl you'll ever meet. She is never without an ear-to-ear grin and contagious laugh. And man does that girl have spunk! Over the years I have come to learn that as a photographer, you earn a first row seat into the most intimate parts of people's lives. Consequently, you get rather good at reading them. All I can say is that the love these four share for one another is raw and effortless. It is with great love and sadness that I was able to capture their amazing connection before they move to finally set down roots after 20 years of service and sacrifice to our country.
