A long while back, I posted that I was a member of a non-profit group of photographers called “Operation: Love Reunited”. The group members donate a special portrait package to our brave servicemen and servicewomen who are being deported to serve our country overseas. It doesn’t matter if the soldier is being sent to a hot war zone, or to a peaceful country. Being deployed means being separated from your family and loved ones, and that is never easy. The goal for those of us affiliated with Op:Love is to help ease this separation by providing the families quality photos and memories to keep with them. The soldier also gets a complimentary photo book sent directly to their location so they have something to keep with them as well.
Recently, I’ve been very honored to be able to work with a couple of families from the Grand Forks Air Force Base. I’m not quite done working on the photos from my most recent session, but I thought I’d share some from an earlier one that I missed getting posted.
I am so thankful that there is some small thing that I can do for our nation’s soldiers. Every military family I have in my studio is one that I am honored to photograph as I know they sacrifice a lot for us and our nation. Thank you to all of our military men and women.
