I hold Homecoming sessions very near and dear to my heart. It may be someone else’s loved ones returning home, but I know the feeling of excitement and anticipation all to well.
I was very touched and honored to have Mrs. J contact me to capture these special moments for her. And even more so when she told me that this was her first one ever. And do you want me to throw even more special details into this story? They also had sweet baby S. Daddy WAS fortunate to meet baby S before he left, but nothing compares to being with your little ones as they grow.
Sure, you get to miss the sleepless nights, crying fits, diaper blow outs, and the other not-so-fun stuff that comes with having a baby, but every sailor dad I’ve ever met swears to me that they would gladly switch places to give mom a break if they could. Pictures, emails, phone calls…nothing even comes close to comparing. That’s one of the many sacrifices that these men and women make to serve our country.
So, without further ado, I’ll share a few of their moments with you.
Welcome home, Mr. J!
