A family I’ve shot for on 2 different occasions have 2 Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, and it was in organizing a fairly large Christmas celebration that I got a call asking me if I’d come out and photograph the families at the party. Are you kidding me? Of course I will.
- Christmas (my favorite holiday) Party
- United States Marine Corps
- I not only get to be around all these people who offer up their service to us, but I also get to photograph them
- Done Deal
So I set up 2 lights against a Christmas scene backdrop, and offered family shots to everyone in attendance (I believe it was around 500). I thought the photos came out great; everyone looking their best, having a great time, and like I rant about at times, documenting a slice of life – especially what the little ones look like. I posted some images on my Facebook page back in December for the Marines to check out before the gallery was ready, but here are a few shots that I really like.
Thank you to Sgt. Jenna and all the men and women of the United States Marine Corps!
