Last Deployment | Military Homecoming | Fort Bliss, TX Photographer
I was so happy when she contacted me for a last minute homecoming. Her original photographer had to cancel and she was is a slight panic trying to find someone. I, of course, was jumped at the opportunity to do my first military homecoming here at Fort Bliss.
She isn't from here either, so she wasn't too much in the loop of location or what not. Me, being new here and never doing a homecoming here, starting asking around trying to find this place that she was eventually told to go to. The problem? The name she was given isn't what everyone on post calls it! LOL Yeah, I was panicking! How was I to find a location if know one knew of the location!
Long story short, I was 99.9% sure of the location once asking my husband to ask around and asking a fellow photographer here who was also meeting her husband the same day. I waited for my client to meet me at the gate but I got a phone call saying she was here ... but she wasn't! LOL She too had no clue how to get around post, luckily, I did know where she was and I rushed to get her. After the giggles and shaking of our heads, we made it to the location with plenty of time to spare!
As we waited, she told me this was going to be their last deployment and I couldn't be any happier for them! No more being separated from each other. They have only been together for a few months or so of their marriage. So needless to say, she was happy to have this finally welcome home ceremony photographed!
Sigh, the sweet sweet feeling of having him in your arms again. Isn't it just one of the best feelings in the world? I love the feeling and I love photographing that first hug and kiss! <3
I think the below picture is where she said something to affect, "I hired a photographer, she's-" And he interrupted, "The one with the camera?" ;) LOL I love it.
I'm am so happy to have the first homecoming session here at Bliss under my belt. I cannot wait to do more! The lighting in this building is much better than Fort Bragg! haha! ;)
