The Brownings and I met last December through a garage sale purchase, from there I have had the pleasure of getting to know them and watch them grow as a family. Pregnant when we met they asked me to do their newborn pictures, since that we have met on a few more occasions to celebrate this first year in their daughter’s life. Always one of my favorites to work with a family again and again. Doesn’t always work that way in a military town.
These two are super proud of who they are, the country that they serve and their family. We have been able to capture that throughout every session while allowing their families to see this little one blossom and grow. I believe Hilary and I bully Ethan just a bit but he is always smiles and a good sport; even when we pulled out the tutu at this last session.
Homecomings are always amazing to me both personally and as a photographer. This one was extra exciting as this was the second time I was to be with this family upon return. Due to some personal things for me and scheduling conflicts it came with stress for the client; Jessica handled it all with grace and understanding for my family and I can’t say thank you to her enough. Some images were taken by a friend and edited by me in order to take care of the scheduling conflict but I was able to get one homecoming photographed and switch my focus to the Neuner family. Just tells us a lot about the people that they are and how lucky I am once again to meet such an amazing set of humans; restoration in faith once again.
Okay onto talking about this awesome family and their homecoming. This little man was born not long ago while his daddy was deployed and once again Jessica held down the home front in wait for her man! Often a bit scary for the youngins when their loved one comes back but these three fit right back together as if Nick had never left! The emotion and happiness felt in these images is exactly why I love what I do.
Thank you once again for allowing me to help capture this amazing time in your life.
Homecomings, homecomings, and more homecomings! What a great way to spend a portion of my April. I love everything about homecomings, well maybe sometimes not the long waits, but since these two waited 7 long months for this kiss I don’t think I have too much to say about that. Jessica contacted me before her hubby even left to make sure she captured her first homecoming as a military spouse. As we waited the excitement grew and grew, as the buses came into view she did everything she could to hold back the happy tears but that was not going to happen. As soon as she spotted her man she was off. Welcome home Marine so glad you are together once again!
There is always a special place in my heart for homecomings. I will say it every time there is so much energy and emotion in the air; it’s exciting, it’s nerve wracking, and it’s all about being back together again. These girls were no different. The 3 year old full of energy while she ran and played waiting with her mom full of excitement and nerves. This Marine was able to sneak up behind us in the sea of camouflage and surprise his girls!
