An Act of Love...

I was recently approved by OpLove ( OpLove.org ) to be a volunteer photographer for their program. The cliff notes version is that OpLove provides photography services to service men (women) as a thank you for their sacrifices to our country. (For more information check out the website.)

I meet with J and B after an hour of trying to find each other (seriously, how many BBQ places can you have in one city with the same name on "Main" street?) But we prevailed and finally met up for the session.

In an odd twist of fate, J contacted me about this session just three days after my application had been approved. So I was very excited to be able to do my first volunteer session with them.

Side note here, but I have to admit I really think this has been my favorite session to edit yet. Several images brought tears to my eyes when I saw them load on my computer and I couldn't tear myself away from them. They just called to me in an odd quirky artist sort of way. I am so honored to be able to share them here, with you, and I hope you will take an extra second to leave a comment and express your thanks and appreciation for all that our service volunteers do for us on a daily basis. A simple thank you is the least you can do.

And now, back to the images.

















Check back tomorrow for a slide show of the entire session!

These photos are absolutely beautiful...I am a little biased due to my cute little niece, but beyond that, the photographer has a wonderful eye and captured the pure innocence behind each shot!
