Dover Air Force Base Welcome Home Session
Updated: Jan 26
The Air Mobility Command Museum was the perfect backdrop for the sweet family welcoming home their Daddy after a year long deployment! When I was invited along I expected to see some happy kids and maybe a few tears. What unfolded at the museum made me cry! I photograph a lot of events that I photograph while crying. This was no exception.
Little does she know that hiding behind a huge pallet is the man she has waited a year to see!
I cry everytime I see this photo. His babies held onto him! They wrapped their arms around him and did not let go.
They all talked to each other every night and his son asked him about those call to confirm it was really him.
What I found to be the sweetest thing was how the children literally did not stop holding onto him. From the time they first saw they held onto him in the cutest ways!
