Hi, I'm LeZandra

Operation Love Reunited is a nonprofit organization of professional photographers that offer free sessions to military members who are about to deploy, are currently deployed, or are coming home.

As a Navy wife, I am very aware of the craziness that is a military lifestyle. When your significant other is deployed you spend every night looking at a photo of them, wishing they were home. The photos I have of my husband get me through the times apart, and I would feel a little lost without them.

I heard about OpLove after seeing the images from a friends homecoming. I thought the photos were amazing! You could see the love and happiness that being reunited brought to everybody.

Home comings always bring me to tears. But I cry out of happiness. I am so glad that people are together again, exactly where they should be, home.

 

When I was born my father was off fighting in the war. I was a little baby, so I couldn’t have possibly remembered our first moments together. But luckily, my mom had her friend there to take photos.

Not a day passes where I do not look at these photos. They are such an important part of my life. And to be able to give somebody these photos brings me a happiness that I could not ever describe.

 

Earlier this week I shoot the USS Kearsarge homecoming for a family that was apart throughout the birth and pregnancy of their first child. I hope that one day Chloe grows up and relives the moment when she first met her father through the photographs.

 

Here are some of the photos that fill me with so much happiness and pride. I shoot for OpLove because I know just how important these photos are when your loved one is away, and how important they are when you get to hold the person you have missed for months once again.

 

Photographers, if you would like to participate in OpLove I cannot recommend it enough! The application is currently down as some changed are being made, but be sure to check in often! Click here for the link for photographers.
