Orange County Photographer Photographs Homecoming Solider And Family

Always looking for ways to give back to the community in which I serve, I recently extended my hand to a family whose patriarch had just completed serving his country overseas this past December. It all began when I was contacted by Tonya who explained to me that her husband was coming home after a seven-month deployment to Camp Pendleton. She expressed that she wanted to utilize my Orange County photography services in order to have pictures taken for the homecoming.

When she asked what this type of photography session would cost I let her know that it would cost nothing and that she should consider it my thank you gift for her husbands service to our country. Initially Tonya wasn't sure whether her husband would arrive on December 17 or December 18 but I told her that regardless of when he arrives that I would be there to take pictures of the homecoming.

Tonya's husband actually arrived on December 17 and I arrived at the local Rotary at about 8:30 AM. While we waited we enjoyed some hot chocolate, munchies and watched the happy reunions of other soldiers returning home. Tonya's husband Tyler finally arrived at 10:30 AM and the Orange County photographs I took of this happy family reunion will not only provide Tonya and her family with printed memories but will remain in my mind for the rest of my life.

Here are some photographs from Tonya and Tylers reunion

The joy of watching loved ones reunite and taking pictures of those events is something I could do over and over again. Should you have any questions about this event or about any of my Orange County photography services please don't hesitate to contact me so that I may be a service.
