Long ago, before there was Scrappy Doodles Photography, there was Air Force 2nd Lieutenant Maria Lamas. She was assigned to Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma where she would start her Air Force family well before starting the family she has today.
The Corrells are part of that family. We were single "kids" hanging out enjoying life. The great thing about family is that even with the distance you stay connected, whether it's through social media or old fashioned letters. Fast forward to the present and over time we have both expanded our families and what a joy it was to not only get to spend time with them and catch up in person for a change, but to be asked to take their family photos.
They have adorable kids (that get along marvelously with mine) and so much love. Little Miss Ava is quite the princess and loves to be sparkly and stylish...just like one of my little divas. After their photos, we moms were entertained by our girls dancing and singing and sparkling. What a way to wrap up a family session.
I say this all the time...the beauty of the Air Force, or really any military branch, is that no matter where you are there will always be a new family member that you get to add to your family, and they don't even have to be another military family.
