I thought sharing this session was completely fitting for today. It was an absolute honor to photograph this sweet homecoming session for the ‘O’ family. It was a roller coaster of emotions from the giddiness surrounding the arrival, to the disbelief that he was actually on US soil, to the nervousness about seeing him for the first time post-partum to the pure love of meeting his son for the first time, and the overwhelming joy of holding his wife and baby. It was the most powerful thing I’ve ever photographed. (scroll through above to see more images)
Memorial Day to me is about remembering those who have served our country, the fallen and the standing… they serve so that we can walk this land, free to live, free to love and free to be. While you enjoy this day with your loved ones, please take time to remember the families who have sacrificed everything for our freedom and those families who anxiously wait for their loved ones to return home safely.
