Military Wedding Photographer Supporting Military Families
As a military wedding photographer it is only on the top of my list to help those who support me! Before I started photographing weddings I was photographing families and even births. As an Army wife I depend on the military community to support me. I meet lifelong friends through my business. As an Army wife we meet new people all the time and our old friends are moving all the time. It is different when it is your client. You grow this relationship with a client, a different type of friendship. I have seen this particular family grow from three to four.
Tonight I write a blog for a special little girl and a special family of mine. As a military wedding photographer I want to support other military families. This family deserves so much more than just support though. They deserve a true helping hand from our community. Back in March of 2013 Jamita contacted me to photograph her maternity session. Her husband, Marcus, was deployed at the time and she wanted to capture the memory to share with him. She brought along her oh-so-amazing little girl LJ. This girl was as sweet as can be. She is fun, loving, kind, and just a girl full of energy! She has a light in her eyes that can just change your view of the day. We had a great session together. It was just a couple months later when Jamita asked me to photograph her birth. I was so excited and could not wait to capture this new member of this amazing family. The birth went great, we joked and laughed through her tears of joy and pain. I was so happy for Marcus & Jamita! I have followed this family through a pregnancy, birth, newborn, homecoming, and one year celebration! It was right then that they got orders to CO. We also were dealing with our orders to NC. As an Army wife we knew it would eventually happen. It always does.
I am so proud to say I got to photograph this amazing family and even more proud to say I know this family. Right now they need your help, actually LJ needs your help. This strong family needs support from others around them. See LJ has autism and with LJ being a military child she has gone through some very extensive stresses in her life. Some things have been very challenging for her. She deserves something that can make her life easier. She needs a friend, a furry friend to be exact. By supporting LJ’s Operation Autism Service Dog fundraiser, you will be making a difference in the quality of her life. The Autism Service Dog will receive specific training for LJ’s needs, such as alerting us when she is trying to wander and comforting her when she is in an overstimulating environment, such as the grocery store, mall, or even a family restaurant. By interacting with the service dog LJ will also be able to improve her safety awareness, verbal communication, and emotional development.
Please help this military family and make a difference in a child’s life. Below you will find the link to LJ’s youcaring fundraiser and you will find their facebook page as well!
Thank you everyone for supporting LJ!
