Military Homecoming Cole & Jacie

I had the privilege of photographing Cole’s military homecoming. The USS Nimitz had been out to sea for almost 7 months. Jacie contacted me to document this special day when Cole came home. I said yes in a heartbeat!

It was a cold winter morning when I waited with Jacie. We laughed, while sipping on coffee. We watched and listened to families prepare to see their loved ones. I remember hearing a little girl say, “There’s my Mommy’s ship!” I don’t think there was a dry eye on the dock.

My husband was in the Marine Corps, so I know the feeling. You can’t sleep the night before. You feel breathless as the time gets closer. You watch and watch hoping to catch a glimpse of your loved one. Time goes so slow until… you see them…and run. Run as fast as you can into their arms. Suddenly the stress and worries melt away. You no longer feel alone.

Military families will always have a special place in my heart.
