As most of you know I recently became a member of Operation Love Reunited. It is a non profit organization that is made up of photographers that have volunteered our time to capture the memories of homecomings for our deployed service men and women. I was honored to be asked to join the homecoming of VAQ-131. It was a great experience and the family was amazing to work with. The two oldest boys were so fun to talk with, and all of the boys did great even though the homecoming was late in the evening. My knowledge of lighting indoors at night was really put to the test, I think this experience has made up my mind that I definitely need an external flash!
A HUGE THANK YOU to all of those who are serving (and have served) in the military. I truly am honored and feel blessed to be involved with an organization that I believe in 100%. I can't wait for future OpLove sessions and the opportunity to work with this incredible family (did I mention mom has her hands full with four boys?!)
