One of my goals for 2013 is to be better about blogging sessions. As part of that goal, I started looking back through older sessions that never got blogged, and this one really jumped out to me. I wanted to share these images and talk a little bit about a wonderful photography organization. I got to photograph this sweet family through the organization Operation: Love ReUnited, which provides an album of photographs to military families facing deployments. This session took place right before Thomas deployed, so his wife Jamie chose her favorite photos from the session and I shipped an album to Thomas while he was overseas. Because of this, he was able to keep photographs of his family with him during his deployment. I love this program and am so honored to be one of the organization’s photographers! I really enjoyed photographing Jamie and Thomas and their adorable two year old daughter, Mary Jane. They wanted less of the posed photographs and more images of them having fun as a family, so that’s exactly what we did. I love the interaction between these three; it’s obvious how closely connected they are.
