I can't believe it has taken me so long to document this experience on my blog... seeing as this was one of my most favorite photography requests so far! I had the privilege of meeting this family last summer for photos and I remember talking about an upcoming deployment for them then. Fast forward to earlier this year when Jessica reached out to me to ask if I could document his return. I hadn't realized how long he had been away from his family, but Jessica was counting each and every day and already planning for their reunion in April. The exact return date and details shifted a few times, and thankfully so since I was worried {like losing sleep worried} that my schedule would conflict with their original date. But it all came together and I was able to witness such sweet moments as these guys celebrated being together again. I love all things military ...most of all the people and their commitment and service... so I can't even begin to describe how blessed I feel to have been asked to be there for this and to take some photographs!
