Hey there! And Happy Wednesday! You know I’m fan of celebrating the military holidays on this blog, right? With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, I thought it was an appropriate time to share with you a little bit about an organization I recently joined that supports our nation’s military service members. Our nation’s heroes.
A small organization called Yellow Ribbon Photographers. All members agree to donate one 1-hour long photo session and some prints to service members about to deploy. After having gone through a few deployments myself with my Sweet, I know firsthand the power of photographs. When I feel like the sky is falling and I’m the loneliest girl on the planet, I just look at the candid moment’s Jesie has grabbed of me and John and I’m instantly uplifted.
It’s a bit risky putting this out there in one of the largest military communities around, but I’m willing to take on as many sessions as I possibly can. If you know anyone about to deploy, please have him or her contact me so I can capture the love shared between his family.
And because posts are better with pictures…
In a time when we are so engaged in war to protect all that our flag stands for, I tend to think of the phrase “love and war” when I see this image.
