I think it’s fair to say that homecomings are my favorite thing to photograph ♥
This was one of those extra special homecomings and I was so excited to photograph it. Samantha had their first child, Lydia while Mark was deployed, and she was 3 weeks old when he came home and met his baby girl for the first time. It was also 3 days after Christmas, so I’m pretty sure it was the best gift this family received this year! It’s overwhelming being there to witness a moment like that, so I can only imagine how it feels when that moment is your own.
Welcome home, SSgt Mattson! Wishing you and your family a happy new year with more time together than apart!
Be sure to notice the adorable pink footprints on Samantha’s welcome home sign! :]
