USS Kearsarge Homecoming~ Welcome Home {Hampton Roads Oplove Photographer}

Each and every homecoming that I have photographed has always gotten to me. This one is no different.  K emailed me a while ago asking me to photograph her husbands homecoming. I was so excited to do it! Especially since this was my first big carrier homecoming.  Of course they decided to come in early and I wasn't there to see the ship dock, but its still a site to see! Being a oplove photographer means the world to me! Because I know how much these little moments mean to the family and how much these moments should be documented. Thank you K for allowing me to be the one to document those memories for you and for your family.  Enjoy your time as a family!!
USS KEARSARGE (LHD 3)~ Welcome Home! Thank you for your service!!

After the homecoming on base, we went down to their oldest daughters school, where she had NO idea daddy was coming home today.  Mom had her get all dressed up saying she needed to make sure her dress fit for when daddy did come home he would see her in it. Nothing could have made the day better than her seeing her daddy that day. 

I told A that I was there to take pictures of cute little girls who decided to dress up today. So she gave me a model pose :)
