THANK YOU Police, Fire, and Active Military for your service and dedication to keeping us safe

2018 is our 1styear offering these 9/11 THANK You sessions in The Woodlands, Texas organized by little ole me.  It was a labor of love to reach out by phone, email and an online campaign to be sure to spread the word to offer these police, fire, and active military families the opportunity to have wonderful images of their men with their wives and their children.   Personally, it is important to me to do these sessions as I was in New York City on 9/11 so I saw firsthand all the sacrifices the police and firemen make to keep us safe.

We are happy to have had 11 Woodlands area photographers providing images for 53 families to honor them and the sacrifices they make.  The families we have met have been so appreciative and thankful. It’s been amazing to do this!

You can see all our participating photographers on the original announcement here:  9/11 THANK YOU ANNOUNCEMENT!   Hopefully it came across your feed!

Sadly it rained here in The Woodlands, Texas on 9/11 so all my THANK YOU sessions had to be postponed, and I was so happy to be able to photograph a few families this week!

Our hope is to continue and grow this tradition every year on 9/11. It’s our way of giving back to those who keep us safe.  So please keep in touch by following us on social media to get on our list for next year!

Just look at these beautiful families, and more to come!

The 9/11 THANK You sessions originated in Frisco, Texas by Courtney Blissett of Bliss Photography in 2014.  She is a gifted senior photographer and the wife of a retired 21 year fireman.   By 2016 she had recruited 3 more photographers, including now Woodlands resident Elizabeth Alexander of Eliz Alex Photography.  In 2018 the Dallas area had 19 participating photographers all across the metroplex.

Happy shooting!
