Mullins family

My first session during my Missouri photography weekend extravaganza was with the Mullins family.  I've had the pleasure of photographing their children before but this was a first for the whole family.  I worked with Dalena before moving to Indiana so it's always nice to see her and catch up.  Onto my favorites!

Dad is a Patriot Rider.  They give motorcycle escort to returning soldiers alive and fallen.  I had the opportunity to witness the Patriot Riders in action some years ago.  There was talk of a boycott for the fallen soldier.  The town rallied and so did these wonderful Patriot Riders.  Tears streamed down my face as I saw the hearse flanked by these motorcyclist giving respect and honor to the fallen soldier.  True Americans that take pride in showing honor and respect whether they support a war(s) or not is what makes this country great!  If only everyone cared so much about our fellow man.
On a less serious note thank you to the Mullins family for giving me the opportunity to capture your whole family.  It was great seeing you again.
