I feel honored any time I'm asked to shoot a homecoming session for a family. Military homecomings have such a special energy to them, and having the privilege of capturing such a unique moment in time for military families is one of the best parts of my job. This family was welcoming home their service member who is a husband and father to them, but he also became a grandfather while deployed. During their reunion, he finally got to meet his granddaughter for the first time. There may have been thousands of people getting off the carrier, but as soon as he spotted his family, everyone else faded into the background.
