This excited mama arranged for me to be her family’s homecoming photographer as soon as her husband’s ship set the date for their return. This was a slightly different homecoming than any I’ve photographed before . . . dad is the ship’s Executive Officer, the #2 officer on the ship. This means that he was one busy man the morning the ship pulled in from a long deployment. Instead of waiting on the pier for him to join the family, I was able to accompany the family aboard the ship as soon as she was tied up. The Admiral in charge of the ship had gone aboard as well, and after she thanked the ship’s leadership team and her crew for a job well done, this sweet family was able to reunite after a long time apart. Enjoy a few moments from this incredibly special day!
