Welcome Home

I had an amazing opportunity to photograph a family being reunited after 2 months and the birth of a new baby.  Tyler went away to Ranger School, which is a part of the army.  Not only was this a great opportunity for me as a photographer to capture this moment in time for them to have forever, but being there and feeling their excitement and joy is an experience all its own.

I love how Tyler is blurry in this photo from running to his family, but the spectators are in focus and you can see their smiles.

This photo (above) melts my heart.  A daddy holding his newborn daughter for the first time, feeling in awe over her and then out of nowhere she reaches her sweet little hand to touch his face.  So, so sweet.

He absolutely admires his oldest daughter.  You could tell that he truly missed her and just wanted her in his arms. 

Not to mention his very brave wife.
