“The life of military children has always had its challenges,” Hicks told The Huffington Post. “Every time families move, children have to make new friends, get used to new schools, and find new clubs and teams to join. So, I wanted to document a special moment with a little girl and the one person that she looks up to the most, the one person who fights for our freedom.”

The photographer advertised her “Military Tea Time Mini Sessions” on her Facebook page and website and received an “overwhelming” response from fellow military families in her local Monterey, California area. When it came time for the tea parties,

“the best part was seeing the glow on these little girls’ faces!” Hicks said.
