As a military spouse myself, I feel strongly about supporting fellow military families.
It is hard to adequately express the challenges and blessings that accompany active duty service in a family. The constant moves and starting over are both exciting and stressful. Do not let finding a photographer for your family be a stressful point. Alyson Lolli Photography can relate to your story, knows the difficulty of schedules, and will work with you to capture your time at your current duty station with custom portraits.
Several years ago, I searched for a photographer to capture my husband's homecoming during his mid-tour R&R. He had been gone for 8 months and would have to go back after two short weeks for another 4 months. Of the dozens of photographers I contacted through Welcome Them Home, only one answered my inquiry. Mandy drove over an hour to the airport and waited with us through the delays and my awkward nerves. I can not describe all of the emotions tied to those images. It is because of Mandy of Amanda Brisco Photography, that I offer the same service to military families. Welcome Them Home is no longer active, but their mission lives on.
Custom Portrait Homecoming sessions are always free of charge.
It is my honor to offer complimentary Homecoming Sessions to those returning from deployment. Alyson Lolli Photography will not charge a family who has endured the separation and the active duty member who has fought for our freedom for a session that is the result of those sacrifices.
In addition to Homecoming Sessions, Alyson Lolli Photography is also available for promotion or retirement ceremonies. You and your family have worked hard to achieve these milestones. Celebrate and capture these moments for you to look back on for years to come. Alyson Lolli Photography not only has experience behind the camera during these events, but also in front of the camera. Alyson knows the flow and sequence and how to capture these events.
Time to have fun
Just because a promotion, retirement or service dress session is a formal affair, it does not mean that your portraits will be stuffy. We still play and have fun throughout the session and incorporate a variety of images that capture your family at this special time.
During our consulation, we will discuss your specific needs and vision. How do you want to incorporate the military into your session? Do you have an image from generations past that you would like to recreate as part of your family legacy? Service dress or OCPs? Rank from your grandfather than you will now be wearing? Let's work together to ensure that you receive the images you envision.
Active duty military always receives 10% off the full session/package in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Retired military receive 10% off print packages. Please inquire for military only events and specials.
Thank you to all past and present families who serve along side their loved ones. It is because of your sacrifice that our active duty members can focus on protecting our freedom.
