The Barclay Family Pre-Deployment Pictures | Photographers near Fort Bliss

Meet Sarah and Matt.

I knew I was going to love working with this family the minute Sarah called to schedule her family pre-deployment pictures!

You see people like working with people who are like them and we have so much in common.

Sarah and Matt met in college at Iowa State University (the same college I went to!)

And their little girls are so cute! Aren’t they? Reading their book together. It’s a recordable book that Dad made for Kyrie during his first deployment and she only gets to read it when he’s gone.

Memorial Video for Sergeant First Class Wayne Brassell, US ARMY (Retired)

Memorial Video for Sergeant First Class Wayne Brassell, US ARMY (Retired)

A memorial service was held at Fort Bliss National Cemetery for Wayne Brassell at 2:30 on Thursday, April 17, 2014.

A reception for the family followed at Partida Hall on Fort Street, here in El Paso.

Yesterday, I received this lovely email from Miss Dorinda Brassell.

Dearest April…..I have watched it already 4 times….and I cannot stop sobbing…..IT IS AMAZING and WONDERFUL. I know that when I share this with the Benavidez Patterson, Partida Hall representatives, they will advertise your “photographic art creation” with others who may need these services. I hope this helps your business, and anyone that would contact me, I will share how much I appreciated your help on such short notice and the extraordinary job that you did for us. You spent your special day with my family and our friends, and that speaks volumes of the kind and wonderful, loving and unselfish person that you are… I cannot express enough the thanks and gratefulness I am feeling for what you have done. Thank you and God Bless You….
Sincerely,
Dorinda Brassell and family

Happy Veteran’s Day from Free Photos 4 Soldiers | Fort Bliss Photographers

Happy Veteran’s Day from Free Photos 4 Soldiers | Ft. Bliss, TX

On Veteran’s Day
by Cheryl Dyson

On Veteran’s Day we honor all
Who answered their country’s call.

Soldiers young and soldiers old.
Fought for freedom, brave and bold.

Many have live while other died,
All of them deserve our pride.

We’re proud of all the soldiers who
kept thinking of the red, white and blue.

For many horrible days and nights,
They fought for us and our rights.

Though we may not know each name,
We thank ALL Veterans, just the same.

The Enriquez Family Pre-Deployment Soldier Video

This Soldier Pre-Deployment video features photographs of the Enriquez Family with their 3 daughters and a handsome new son. Rosslynn is an Administrative Professional and plans to stay in the Greater El Paso area while her husband is deployed.

This is the first time that I tried a multi colored background with the Multicam uniform and I think it came out great because it has virtually the same colors that I get when I’m photographing a Memorial Park. What do you think? Share your thoughts! And Google +1 if you like it.
