Deployment Homecoming

Leave a comment







I’ve done lots of photoshoots over the past few years, and I’ve taken pictures that really catch my breath or bring a tear to a parents eye, but none compare to the emotions felt today- I got to do my first military deployment homecoming photo shoot. I’ll spare you all the details leading up to it, but when that plane touches down, I’m not sure how the families and friends waiting can contain their excitement! Even though it was below freezing and snowing, everyone stood out on the flight line chatting eagerly and clutching their tissues. I can’t imagine how much children and babies change during a deployment and seeing this daddy hold his little girl for the first time in months was just so touching.

Waiting and looking out the window


“Let him off the plane!”

Awww…love’s first embrace
