This family is our home away from home. Dustin was Sean’s Platoon Leader in Afghanistan in 2010-2011, and our families have stayed close ever since. They live just outside of Pittsburg, and we try to get together a few times year. I have to say, for a long distance friendship we do an excellent job of making our crazy family gatherings a priority.
We usually don’t do a ton on our weekends together – having 5 kids under one roof and 4 adults who just want to have a conversation… sometimes staying put and just being together is easiest! This trip we decided to change it up and meet at a campground called The Cove, in Gore, VA. Sean tol Dustin it was halfway… it is NOT halfway ? sorrrrrry Dust.
Ashley and Dustin brought their camper (hence why a photoshoot could actually happen during a camping trip haha) and we snuck away for a few minutes in the afternoon to take these precious photos of a family that couldn’t be closer to my heart.
