Sowards Homecoming

I am a little behind after our family getting slammed with two viruses in a row! The downside to being a big family is how quickly illness spreads. When one gets its, we all go down! But here is a darling homecoming from last month.
This session was very last minute, as in I was contacted that morning! I am so glad I was free that night and able to be there. This homecoming was special. Not only was the dad being surprised with his daughters flying in, but his 3 month old granddaughter was also there waiting to meet him for the first time. Which is just such a heart melting combination that I have ever gotten to shoot at a homecoming.
It was a warm WA evening full of anxiety as the time changed right as I left for the gym. Only for them to show up later than the first time in true military style, they like to keep the families on their toes till the last second! I watched as this family planned out how they were going to surprise their dad. I watched as they anxiously tried to wait through all the setbacks, as the crowd grew, time passed wondering when they were going to get their reunion. You can view their homecoming journey for yourself in their video below.
As a military spouse myself,  my heart truly goes out to my homecoming clients. You can not imagine exactly what they are going through unless you have been through it yourself.  I love these videos as a way to further give them just a little more to remember those moments of joy that can be some of the happiest moments in the life of a military family.

Love homecomings as much as I do?  Than share this post and the joy of the family reunion below!
Have your own homecoming coming up? I would love to get in talk with you on how I can help you capture those sweet memories.

Snyder Couples – Dupont Wa

I just love this session. These images have so much life in them. Real life. Real emotion. Steve was a real trooper, he wasn’t the happiest about getting his photo taken that even but you would never know. Not only did he keep a smile on his own face but he kept his wife giggling the whole time. The true mvp of this session!

These two are Germany bound in a few months and after being one of my first WA sessions I am a little sad to see them go! Tis the military lifestyle,  our clients turned friends come and go. Leaving us with a somewhat magical network of friends and support scattered all over the country. I can not wait to follow their european adventures to come!

Amanda is a photographer herself as well! You can check her out here (hint hint for anyone with friends or currently stationed at Grafenwöhr help spread the word that some new talent is coming to town!) Having another photographer book you is the biggest honour in the game and I don’t take that lightly! Huge thank you to Amanda and Steve for choosing me for your couples session! I had a blast at your session as always.
