217 Days (Lemoore Portrait & Event Photography}

On Wednesday, I was honored to photograph a Navy Homecoming in Lemoore. This family has been separated for 217 days. Two-hundred-and-seventeen days. That is many, many, many days that Daddy has not seen his girls, kissed their faces, or tucked them into bed at night.

The days consisted of two homecomings – here’s a shot of the first squadron to come in. They flew in formation right over the hanger we were in, giving me goosebumps and chills and tears, all in an instant.

A group shot of some of the wives waiting for their pilots to return home safely.

And the face of a one-year-old who hasn’t been with her daddy in 217 days….

… and a 5-year-old very anxiously awaiting the next group of planes to arrive.

Here they come!

Once they all landed, they walked in together, carrying red roses. I dare you to stand there watching this scene without feeling pride for our red, white, and blue.  ; )







Happy little girl!


To say I am honored and thankful is an immense understatement. Thank you T family for your service, your sacrifice, and for allowing me to share this day with you.
