Happy Homecoming

Today I had the pleasure of meeting a sweet Army wife at her hubby’s homecoming!  Blessed to have the honor of capturing this day for her!

This week has been the hottest yet this summer, and today was no exception!  It was actually cooler outside because of the breeze vs inside the hangar, so we didn’t mind waiting outside!

Because the Army Post is redoing the airfield, our soldiers now arrive at the hangar via buses!  In the past, I had a great dislike for these white buses as they always were taking my man away, not bringing him home!  Today was much happier!

We saw him get off the bus and this smile says it all!!  They are HOME!

Sweet friends that help us get through the long deployments are why we call them Army Sisters!

In each others arms again!  Her eyes are such a gorgeous blue!

Thank you for letting me capture this moment for you!

There is nothing like being at a military homecoming ceremony!  I always get teary eyed when I attend one!

I would love to chat with you on Facebook ~ or follow me on Pinterest!  See what a “few of my favorite things” are!

Blessings & JOY ~

Throwback Thursday!

This is a Throwback Thursday Country Music Edition!

I’m sitting here in my salon, working.  Sorting papers, painting frames, hanging old photos, and listening to country music.

It isn’t long before a Blake Shelton song comes on.

I remember about 4 or 5 years ago when Fort Campbell had Blake come and serenade us all on a very hot and humid day!  Some of our good friends went even earlier than we did and saved us some A-MAZING seats.  I was tickled, because I actually got some pretty great shots of a celebrity!  That never happens in my introvert mom life!  ;)

Of course, he sang some of his newer ones (that are now years old) and after many hollers from the crowd, finally played Red for us!

I was leaning as far over the rope (for the walk way to the sound booth) as I could to get these shots! LOL.  In the next photo, I jokingly said he was looking right at me!  So despite it being a tad blurry, it was saved.

I took a photography class over the course of two years, and this concert was during that time.  Naturally, I selected this next photo for the ‘leading lines’ project!

It is definitely my favorite shot from the night.  I love photography, and being able to capture moments in time!

Oh, and in typical military fashion, we were given event t-shirts (which I may or may not still have).

Enjoy your Thursday!
