It is always such an honor to capture military homecomings – especially when it is a family’s first. I met Charlene and her three children at 32nd Street Naval base just as the ship was pulling up. Thankfully, we knew that we still had time to wait before anyone was let off. We waited and waited, watching her daughters dance around with their flags and matching skirts. Until.. all of a sudden their Dad came walking over! It was a shock to say the least, and I cannot even explain the excitement that I saw on all three children’s face. Their dad was home, finally, after seven long months.
Thank you Butler family, for allowing me to be a part of this very special day!
