A Hero is Home | Military Homecoming Session*

Kara Street eagerly asked me if I would be available to capture her husband’s homecoming weeks ago and I quickly and excitedly responded yes. (These are some of my favorite types of sessions!) She was still awaiting details but would let me know when and where. Then the corona virus hit, along with uncertainty of when Wes would be able to be reunited with his family. It looked like Wes’ arrival would be postponed, but that quickly changed to his arrival home last Monday.

“We must never forget why we have, and why we need our military. Our armed forces exist solely to ensure our nation is safe, so that each and
every one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have
‘guardians at the gate.”

When I arrived to the Street home, Kara was ecstatic and bubbly, ready to welcome her husband home. She was also excited to see him hold his daughter (now nine months old) for the very first time. Avoiding traveling by plane, Wes drove twenty hours to return home. I was able to capture so many sweet moments of this family, together once again. I was overjoyed to be a part of such a lovely homecoming!

“This will remain the land of the free so long as it is the home of the brave.”
