Maverick and Melissa Mashburn met me in Ranch San Rafael Park near the University of Nevada Reno on a chilly winters morning (relative to Reno weather) to make some family portraits of them, their son and Melissa’s sister. We shot Anita’s (Melissa’s sister) wedding a couple years ago so it was great to see them and get to run around the park with them again. The sun broke out of the inversion just as we were starting to shoot, (harsh mid-day sun) but we made the most of it and stayed fairly warm in the process. Maverick and Melissa are stationed at a small military base in Germany where they serve our country. Their son Noah is already fluent in German (lucky). It was really nice to see them again and make photos of such interesting, engaging and warm people.
