The homecoming of 100 Heros

I love to be involved in my comunity. When I was asked to photograph the homecoming of 100 Marines, how could I pass? The orginazers of the homecoming event were seeking donations from all over the Metro Detroit area. It was the perfect opportunity to get involved. I donated my time and talent and I will also give each of the service members a cd of the images I captured. I have recently applied to help the chairty They are a fantastic organization for service members being deployed. This event was along the lines of Operation Love but, on a much bigger scale; usually I would only be photographing 1 family, not 100. The day was perfect, the anticipation, the excitment and of course the reunion of families. It was such a treat. Here are only a handful of images I have completed.
I must say a big thank you to my sister Amanda, without her, I would have been lost and she captured some pretty great images herself! Thank you sis!

What a fun mom these boys have! She wanted them to dress up in their Super Hero outfits so we could get some fun photos. The boys had a different idea on how the photo session would go though. Dominic and Adrian wanted to play with sidewalk chalk so these are the only photos I have of the Super Heros. Thanks for looking.

This is Anastasia. Isn't she beautiful? I had the pleasure of meeting her and her mom on Saturday. Oh my, they were full of energy! We had so much fun and Anastasia was a good sport through all of the clothing changes. This summer she'll definitely be the cutest babe on the beach. I hope you enjoy her as much as I did.

You may think that since I am a photographer, I must have tons of beautiful shots of my own children. You see it's like a photographer's Murphy's Law, it's nearly impossible. Here is a short session I had with my oldest son a few weeks ago. At the time I was getting frustrated with him for not doing what I asked, but now I'm so glad to have these. It completely shows off his personality and that is the ultimate goal. I want to capture a child's personality, not a pose. I thought I'd share my own "disaster" photo shoot. A little encouragement for parents trying to get a nice image of your own child, take lots of photos - they are easy to delete and if they are not in the mood, wait 20 minutes and try it again. If you force it, you'll end up with this;) Good Luck and enjoy!

PS I love the last one. It is not technically correct, but oh well, I love it anyway!

Well, my weekend with Misty was all I could have asked for! Her family welcomed me into their home like I was an old friend. She was so kind and funny and crazy (in a good way - you know like artists should be.) We had so much fun! I laughed a lot while we worked - it didn't even feel like work. It would have taken me years of experience to gian the wisdom she gave me. My business is headed in the direction I have always dreamed. Thank you Misty! Here are a few photos I snapped of her while I was learning.
