I had the honor of photographing a deployment homecoming and it was one of the most amazing experiences. The pure joy and excitement throughout the hangar was palpable. Everyone was buzzing with anticipation. When the buses pulled up everyone began searching for the familiar face of a loved one. Little ones cheered and leapt into their returning parent’s arms! Spouses cried and clung to the cherished forms of those whom they had spent so many nights dreaming. It was a wondrous sight to behold and document.
After sharing in that experience, I was inspired and discovered that I wasn’t the only one! Welcome Them Home is an organization that matches military families with photographers to document their loved one’s homecoming! I am honored to now be an official Welcome Them Home Photographer!
Thank you Kristy for allowing me to share in your special moments and inspiring me!!
