Tim + Jocelyn | MCAS Miramar | Military Homecoming Photographer

"And in that moment, all of the impatience, the tears, the lonely moments, and the burdens of separation lifted from my shoulders like lithe little birds floating away into the sky. You were back in my arms and that was all that mattered."

I don't think I'll ever tire of capturing military homecomings. There is something about arriving to a parade deck or hangar, pier or runway and feeling that buzz of impatience in the air. Everyone is expectant and glowing with excitement, ready to be back in the arms of their love. It really gets me so excited to break out my camera and capture the wide array of emotions! 

Every homecoming is full of smiles, tears, laughter, and sweetness. But Tim + Jocelyn were really something so refreshing! They're absolutely adorable, sure, but what's so special is just seeing how these two interact. Their love is so playful, fun, and affectionate ... it's just the sweetest! I was so happy to capture all these moments and I'm even happier that Jocelyn and I have since become friends. She's a light and a true gem ♡
