Welcome Home, Marine! | San Diego Military Homecoming Photographer | MCAS Miramar Homecoming Photographer | Alicia Q. Photography

. You know how I know summer is on it's way?  My inbox is becoming flooded with inquiries for military homecomings.  It seems summertime is the busiest season of all for these types of sessions.  I love photographing them and I love knowing so many families are becoming whole again.  For that reason, I figured I'd share some of the homecomings I have yet to share here on the blog.  I want clients to get a good idea of what to expect from their own homecoming session and having examples to reference is the best way to do that :)

This is the K Family's homecoming from a perfect night last December at MCAS Miramar.  I had so much fun waiting with Bethann and her baby boy and I think you can see how having an energetic toddler can make the night more interesting :)  That energy definitely peaked when the headlights from the buses appeared through the misty fog and illuminated an already buzzing crowd.  Of course I was teary-eyed when Bethann reunited with her Marine, but my heart totally melted as I watched father and son immediately start to rebuild their bond.  It was magic not even the darkness could hide :)

And without further ado, here is the K Family's homecoming story...
