Incredible Homecoming Video Captures The Emotions Leading Up To The Reunion

March 17, 2014

“Usually, homecoming videos only include the moment when they reunite (WHICH IS AMAZING). I tried to capture the moments before they left to pick him up, when they travel through the airport to find him, and then in their home making the blueberry pancakes my 4 year old niece mentions early in the video.

I saw first hand the sacrifice the families go through in order for our country to be free. This was his 3rd deployment, but the first where he had children. I am a photographer and I hope you enjoy the little home video I put together for Kristen, Josh, Audrey, and Vera. They hadn’t seen each other in over 5 months. I was so blessed to be apart of such a special moment.”
