Marine Core Airstation Miramar | VMFA 225 | Military Homecomings


Smith Family

Clara contacted me last year in search of a Homecoming photographer and I am SO glad she did! It was a beautiful day waiting for her husband to arrive. He was coming home with VMFA 225; VMFA stands for Fixed-Wing Marine Fighter Attack so you can imagine there all pretty important people.

One of my favorite things about their homecoming is the special bond between Clara and another soon to be Military Spouse! I got to watch their friendship and excitement together.

As I said on my Facebook page: 

"I got to see the bond between friends made in the military. 


These two women are at different stages of their life but united in supporting their loved one. 



Overall, I loved photographing my clients family, and seeing such raw emotion; but I equally loved watching these two friends interact through the anticipation of their Marines coming home. 

Do yourself a favor, hire a photographer! "
