About this session: 

After getting over my nerves to meet such an inspirational military spouse, I was able to calm down and truly enjoy the experience. Dana and Chris are two very humble, genuine, beautiful people. Chris kept me laughing all session!  When our session was over, I felt as if I'd known them forever! Although I don't think Chris enjoyed my jokes about submitting only the images where he was making crazy faces. Not the "I wasn't ready, I might be blinking" crazy face, I'm talking about the "I'm a total guy and am going to make a silly face because I can" crazy face. (sorry chris) But as you can see above, I didn't do that! 
Our session began at the Pape's home here in San Antonio, Texas and ended at Randolf Air Force Base (a base of Joint Base San Antonio) I am a huge fan of sun flare and golden light, so we shot close to sunset to capture what I had envisioned.  The Pape's are so natural in front of the Camera! I had such a great time!

I MUST thank Tim Fraga ( for his assistance during the Randolf portion of the session. Not only was he a great photo assistant but he helped to calm my nerves of having a PR Rep escort us around base. I was certain she was going to shout out "stop, you can't do that!" at any second. Thankfully that didn't happen. For all you folks wondering Photographs are not permitted on military installations. 

Overall Shooting for Military Spouse Magazine and meeting the amazing Chris p is an exrience that I will cherish for ever! If you have the chance to support Military Magazine and/or Chris Pape I highly encourage you to do so!
