I’m sure some of you have heard of this organization but for those who hadn’t, I just had to share it!
OpLove is a group of volunteer photographers who take pictures of military families pre/during/post deployment at no cost to the military family. You also get a free photo book sent to you after. They really are supportive of military families in a very practical, caring way.
FI just joined the Navy, and I am already looking forward to working with a photographer from OpLove when he comes home from a deployment someday! I’m spreading the word to all my military friends, and that includes you bees too! 🙂
ETA: Make sure you have a whole box of tissues when you visit the site! Just a heads up 🙂

Oh this is so cool! If we had a base nearby, I’d definitely be involved!

I’ve been spreading the word to all my military friends and I am now kind of excited for FI’s inevitable deployments so we can get pictures like these!!
@ejs4y8: You might still be able to help! Some photographers don’t live near bases and they can sometimes go to military families who don’t live on base for whatever reason. Or just spreading the word to anyone who might be interested in being a photographer would also be good too.

I -love- this service! My sister-in-law used it last year for my brother’s coming home ceremony 🙂
Here are a few pictures our wonderful photographer took:
