I was so excited when this family hired me to photograph their family before daddy left on a business trip! They were so much fun! The boys were full of energy and spunk and Mom and Dad were silly and in love. I had a blast!
This is what happens when you tell brothers to love each other. haha! They were so cute and silly!
Of course we had to get pictures alone with daddy for everyone! <3
These boys. <3 So much fun. I mean, that's all I can really say! I was left tired, but in a fabulous mood. I had to mediate with a stick in my back pocket, I had to make silly noises and talk about monkey cheese, and all other silly boy stuff. But oh, they melted my heart!
It's taken me a while to blog this military homecoming due to personal and other busy work, BUT this homecoming was definitely one for the books! This was a family with older children, normally my families have younger children. But what I loved about this one is that older son and his wife flew out to welcome home dad from his final deployment. Oh, and also? Dad is retiring soon too! So this was definitely a homecoming to remember!
Mom was so excited that she could watch Dad's flight approach El Paso. I had never witnessed this before and I thought it was soon cool!
When his flight landed and approached the gate, all hearts were a flutter and eyes began to water.
They kept watching the escalator, hoping they'd see boots coming down.
Then there he was!!
Hugs, kisses, and more hugs. What a wonderful homecoming!
Welcome home and good luck in whatever your future awaits! Thank you for choosing me to photograph this awesome moment in y'alls lives!
This adorable family is full of spunk and love! These girls made me laugh the entire session. They are so charismatic and full of life. I hope they had as much fun as I did!
So I love this image above. It's technically a blooper, but I stinking love everything about it. Husband said something silly and Wife just couldn't hold it in. LOVE the true expressions on both of them!

As 2016 is coming to a quick end, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my wonderful clients and models for choosing me as your photographer. Y'all are so awesome and it means the world to me that out of the many photographers around the area, you chose me.
I had only two homecomings this year, but each was super special - a little girl got to welcome her daddy and a wife got to welcome her hubby back from the last military homecoming of his career. I helped two families announce their pregnancies and photographed two beautiful Southern Charm weddings. I had a one year old's cake smash with her puppy and a first spaghetti smash! Three seniors chose me as their photographer and seven families picked me to photograph their going families. Two couples smooched in front of my camera for redeployment pics and engagement pics. Nine models graced my camera's lens helping me get super creative and I thank you for that! Not to mention the countless pups and kitties that I photographed from the shelters and Old Glory's tour through El Paso.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and even with the mid-year move, y'all supported me so much. It's more than I could ever ask for. I'm incredibly lucky and I CANNOT wait to see what 2017 has in store for Sharilyn Wells Photography! Happy New Year!
