Where do I start?… How can we ever repay military families for what they do? Their sacrifice goes beyond anything that could ever be paid monetarily. What they do for our country is amazing. We have the opportunity to photograph many military families that are on the cusp of deployment that includes a family separation. These days families are separated for 8+ months and longer. Generally we photograph these families 1 month prior to their deployment. While photographing these families, my mind is always reeling about the family that will be left behind. Meet the O’Connor family. Amazing people, amazing family, amazing sacrifice.
