The United We Stand Mini Sessions at Neal Urban Studio were a great way for us to offer portraits to those who have served our country. We had veterans, first responders, fire fighters, military, air force, army, navy, marines, police, and families of those who have served visit the studio for these sessions. We kept it very simple and found a huge flag from an antique store for the back drop. We used our ship lap wall we had created for Spring Mini Sessions just a few months before. From here, we added in old ladders, chairs, and chests to use for posing. Many families brought photos of those that served, uniforms, and any memorabilia they had.
This family came and had a long line of policemen and service men. We wanted to showcase everything, so we used one of our ladders. Nice and simple posing too. Then we brought in the whole family and did different combinations of portraits.
We try to come up with different ideas or styles for photos shoots all of the time. This was something we had been planning for a while, but never had the availability. We were so happy we could honor those who have served or are serving our Country. These will be great memories all of these families can keep with them forever.
