What's not to love about a military homecoming? As a Camp Pendleton Homecoming Photographer, I love how emotionally packed a homecoming is. I love getting to capture a couple, or a family reuniting after a long period apart.
As a military wife, myself, I know what this separation period feels like all too much. I often say there are different levels of missing someone. Being apart from your significant other, or a parent, for 6 months or more, is a level of missing that most, thankfully, don't have to experience. But pretty much every military member, service member or family member, will experience this at some point, a lot of them will experience it more than once.
Alex and Josh recently completed their first deployment together. After a long 6 months they were able to reunite. There isn't much sweeter in this world than that first moment of getting to hug your loved one after a long time of barely being able to talk to them, let alone touch or hug them. These two, however, made it seem "easy". Their reunion was sweet and quick. They couldn't wait to get out of there and get back to being "them", together.
I'm so happy these two are together again. Welcome home, Marine!
If you've ever spent a longer period of time away from someone you love, then you understand how wonderful it can be to reunite with that person. As a Camp Pendleton Military Homecoming Photographer, I love getting to capture a reunion like military homecomings.
Corina & Eric experienced, and kicked butt during, their first deployment together. It can be really hard as a newly wed couple to go through a separation that is not only a long one, but also a potentially dangerous one. However, if there's one thing I've learned in my almost 10 years of being married to my own Marine, it's that we're built a little differently. You kind of have to be in order to be a military spouse. We are resilient, and we're strong.
Corina had contacted me last minute because her original photographer was unable to make her homecoming as the date had changed to a time she was no longer available. But that's just how homecomings go, always changing, and we're always needing a backup plan. Luckily, I just so happened to have an opening so it all worked out. I'm thankful that it did. I'm always so happy to capture military homecomings because I know just how important they are!
Eric & Corina had a beautiful reunion. The look on Corina's face when she's staring at Eric really does say it all. I'm so happy they're together again.
Welcome home, Marine!
As a Camp Pendleton Homecoming Photographer it is my pleasure to be able to capture families welcoming their own personal heroes home from a deployment. Being away from someone you love is hard enough. Being away from them for 6 months or more, and we're talking nearly unbearable.
Military families are strong and resilient. We are a community that stands by one another and supports each other. We all get it. We all know what it's like. We all have that one thing in common. Things get tough, but we just keep on going... because we have to.
I met Ravan the day Mike was returning from his 6 month military deployment. We drove down to where the homecoming was supposed to be, only to find out that it was being delayed a few hours. This is totally normal in the military life. Things never really go as planned, that's why we have plans B, C all the way through Z already in place. Instead of driving back home at the risk of needing to turn right back around, we decided to grab some frozen yogurt and sit and chat. I loved this opportunity because I got to know Ravan and Mason a bit more. I loved how excited Mason was that Mike was coming home. They already had so much planned out that they were going to do together.
We waited quite a while, which you might be able to imagine was pure torture for Mason. But the reaction I caught when Mike finally arrived was priceless.
I am so thankful that I am able to capture these moments. And I am so thankful for our men and women who serve our country. Thank you!
