Dan’s Homecoming | Williamsburg, VA homecoming

I was privileged to photograph my first homecoming. Was sincerely excited to be there and meet this family. Being a Army wife, I know what Jen was going through. After talking with her more, I realized that there was alot of similarity between us. She has two boys and a baby girl. They were also evenly spaced out. Also my husband was deployed while our daughter was under one years old. They also only have about 6 yrs left till 20yrs retirement. She was me, 5 years ago. Well, of course MUCH MUCH thinner. One thing that set her apart, was their baby daughter was 3 months old, and had yet to meet her daddy. So, this was a very special day. Thank you guys for allowing me to share it with you!
