Today hopes to prove a busy day. We are doing free mini portrait sessions for the families of deployed military members. This is a food drive for the food bank of First Coast No More Homeless Pets, and the USO of the Greater Jacksonville Area. Scan Design Contemporary Furniture has been so gracious in sponsoring floor space for us to have a feeling of "home" as we take these photos. While SmugMug Users Group of Jacksonville (JAXSMUG) has offered web space for these families to be able to download images for free. Some of Jacksonville photographers, Norman Al, Heather Blackwell, James Burney, James Hunter, Lori Robinson, and Ben Wilson, to name a few, have partnered with myself, to make this event happen.
If you are, or know of a military family, have them come down to Scan Design on the corner of Baymeadows and Philips Highway between 11am and 3pm, with a dependent ID, a non-perishable or pet food, and be ready to smile! While this event is intended to be for the families of the deployed, those families whose sponsor is available are welcome to participate as well. We just ask for the sponsor to be in uniform.
Hope to see you guys there.
