What’s the catch?
This is our most often asked question. Reality is, most people don’t believe that they are getting something for nothing. This is a free service as long as you qualify.
How much is the Session Fee?
There are NO Session Fees, and you are not obligated to purchase any prints. This is a free gift for your family, as a thank you for your Hero’s service to our nation.
How do I qualify for an OpLove session?
Your service member MUST BE deploying (within a reasonable time frame and should have received their orders), already deployed (a copy of a command letter of deployment or orders may be requested) or coming home from a deployment.
What do I get, and can I purchase prints?
There is NO obligation to purchase anything, whatsoever. As part of the OpLove program an album of (15) 4×6 prints will be sent directly to the deployed solider (I can not leave these with the non-deployed spouse). 1-2 weeks after your session, you will have access to your private-password protected gallery on my website. You can review and share this gallery with your friends and family. If you are interested in purchasing prints you may add them to your shopping cart and complete the checkout process online. You may use the coupon-code OPLOVE20 for 20% off any orders over $50.00.
What should we wear?
The deploying soldier must be in military uniform for the session. If the OpLove session is taking place while the spouse is deployed, the session will have a patriotic theme, such as using military gear (dog tags, boots, uniforms) and flags. Some ideas for your children include mini-ACUs or PT shirts, patriotic dresses/shirts.
What is the best location & time for our session?
We can discuss location for your session to find the perfect fit for your family’s size and needs. Session can be done at a park, your place of work, home, on the nearest base/post, as well as many “hidden” locations around the area. I plan each session to last between 1 and 2 hours depending on children, pets and families schedule. Many of my sessions are in the early morning or early evening, avoiding the harsh mid-day sun.
