I have many friends and family members who have served (or are still serving) our country. On Veterans day, I would like to acknowledge their service and sacrifice. I am forever grateful.
These heroes are dead. They died for liberty – they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars – they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead.
– Robert G. Ingersoll
It seems appropriate to share baby Wesley’s session on Veteran’s day, as both of his parent’s serve our country. Baby Wesley was a solid sleeper and barely made a peep throughout his newborn photography session! His parents wanted to include nods to their service in his session. The resulting images are both adorable and meaningful. Take a look!
