LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

We've seen a shift in the way some communities think about armed officers, but a movement that began in Ohio has come to Lubbock. 

This week South Plains officers are capturing special moments with their families thanks to the generosity of one photographer.

Casey Smith Photography is offering free photo shoots for families of law enforcement officers. 

Casey Smith, the owner of the company says, "I have a couple of good friends that are officers here in Lubbock. And not only that, just seeing what they're going through in the media. I figured its something little I can do to help them get by another day." She adds, "Obviously officers are going through a little bit of turmoil." Around the country, amid the chaos of everyday life, many photographers are snapping moments of families with someone who wears a badge.  

"A lot of people have told me, we haven't even taken a family photo since our son has been born." Smith knows life is busy, and wanted to honor the men and women who serve in the best way she knows how.

A simple Facebook post by Casey Smith Photography and the word spread. She started shooting sessions on Monday, July 25 and now she's booking up so much, says says she'll have to extend her free photo week for officers but she doesn't mind at all.

Smith says it is something small she can do, that'll have a lasting impact. "Just coming to take pictures on their time off with their family. Just being proud and be in their uniform, or badge and have that to save for forever."

This photographer, and many others sacrificing thousands of dollars in free services just as a way to say thanks.
