Hearts Apart Shoot: The Rivera Family

file under: hope

U.S. Marine Joseph Rivera kisses his wife Alissa at Camp Pendleton in California.

My friend & fellow photog Krista Kennell is the West Coast Coordinator for HeartsApart.org, recruited me to become a volunteer photographer with the nonprofit. They match professional photographers with military families about to deploy for portrait sessions.

From their website:

HeartsApart.org was created to keep families connected while our military men and women are serving abroad. Through the efforts of our community’s finest photographers, HeartsApart.org provides our soon to be deployed servicemen and women with pictures of their spouses and children. The photographs are printed on waterproof and durable bi-folded cards, which fit securely in their uniform pocket. HeartsApart.org believes that our military personnel deserve and need the memory of their families to carry them through the difficult times that lie ahead.
