This past weekend I met with Anne and Natalie at the Santa Monica pier.  Anne found me through an organization I volunteer for called Operation:Love Reunited.  Through OpLove, photographers donate their time to do sessions for military service members and their families.   Anne’s husband is deployed overseas, and I will be sending him an album of pictures from the shoot.  It is very important to me to be able to give back to our men and women in uniform, as well as their families.  Their sacrifice for our country is so selfless and courageous, and this is a way I can say “thank you”.

I had a wonderful time with Anne and Natalie.  Natalie is just a little older than my own daughter and is a very busy, happy little girl.  She loves to bounce and run and play.  Anne is a great mom, so warm and attentive to Natalie.  She can’t wait for her husband to come home.

Best wishes to your family, and thank you again!
