This is not my typical photo gig. I usually stick to portraits, but when our soon-to-be-skipper’s wife asked me to photograph the change of command ceremony for her, I couldn’t pass it up. How do you say no to that? It was such an honor to be asked, and I am truly blessed to be able to witness such important and meaningful military traditions. Being married to someone in the Navy has made me that much more patriotic and appreciative of our country and those who serve.
