Being a military family, my husband and I have had the pleasure of meeting some pretty amazing people. Amongst them is Josh and Daniela. When Josh deployed in June, we didn't expect him home until March, but to our surprise, he would be home just four months after he left. I had never been to a homecoming and I was nervous about shooting one, but I KNEW I had to be there when Daniela, Amber (4) , and Amara (1) welcomed their soldier home.
Here's the catch; Amber had NO IDEA why we were there! Never asked either. She sat there content with her iPad as Amara got her beauty rest and waited patiently. All of the sudden the doors begin to open and all the soldiers make their way into the building. "Dad!!!!" she yelled. And there they were, all home safe and sound.
Once they were dismissed, Daniela and the girls eagerly waited for Josh to find them. What felt like an eternity was finally over. Back in their arms he was!
It was an honor to be there as this family reunited <3
