I have had the great honor to capture several military homecomings in 2017. Being a military spouse myself, these happy reunions are one of my favorite things to photograph. I love being a part of the energy of the day — so many happy emotions are in the air when I am among the families and friends watching helicopters land and ships pull in. I look forward to capturing many more of these happy times in San Diego over the next couple of years.
The USS MAKIN ISLAND Amphibious Ready Group deployed last October with numerous ships and thousands of sailors and marines. I received over 25 inquiries to photograph a spouse who was returning with this group after having been deployed for seven months. Being the sole person that I am, I was able to photograph one helicopter fly-in and one ship pull-in. This beautiful lady contacted me a few months into her husband’s deployment to arrange for me to photograph his fly-in homecoming. There was no shortage of happy moments during this morning. Enjoy a few special moments from this military homecoming!
Get in touch if you have a special someone coming home from deployment and would like to book me to be your homecoming photographer!
