Military Homecomings seriously tug at my heart & in more ways than just the photography side of it. There is so much emotion going on around you, so many things happening at once. So many different deployment stories - all rolled into one emotionally charged area where so many people are waiting to welcome home their loved ones.
The backstory on this: I snapped this shot when I was waiting on my client to get his bags. I was talking to another photographer friend when we both heard this little girl beside us cry out for her Father. He was only going to get his bags… but I think she thought like he was leaving her again. Tears streaming down her face.. saying ‘Daddy, Daddy…’
It broke my heart.

This is one of my favourite shots I have ever taken at a homecoming! SO MUCH EMOTION! ©Angie Schutt Photography
I couldn’t get the smile off my face when these two were FINALLY back in each others arms! She is also in the Navy and no stranger to deployments.
This gives me goosebumps!
