I obviously photograph a lot of couples- especially cadets & their fiancés here at West Point. I dated my husband his first two years at West Point (don't ask me about his Cow & Firstie Year #stillbitter BUT ITS FINE), and so I love seeing families back here now, years later.
Melanie & Michael are coming up on 10 years of marriage, and how special to be back at the place it started (their engagement photos were done on Flirty Walk!) and with their adorable twins. Melanie picked an amazing spot to start with- I'd been eyeing that tree since it started blossoming, and it provided lots of fun and genuine laughter for the kiddos.
Marrying your cadet, building a life together, and weathering 10 years of Army life isn't easy, I know this firsthand, but you'd never be able to tell it was anything but a fairytale with this family. <3
