Hire A Family Photographer For When A Family Member Is Coming Home From Service


For every family with one member serving in the armed forces, there's nothing more special than when that person comes home — especially if he or she has been serving overseas in a dangerous area. When you get the word that your spouse will soon be home, you'll likely get busy to prepare in a number of ways. One thing that you should think about doing is hiring a family photographer who can be with you to document the moment.

One of the nice things about working with a pro is that he or she can simply blend into your surroundings and snap away while you focus on the importance of the moment. The result will be a series of breathtaking photos that you'll cherish for a lifetime. Here are some shots that the photographer will likely get.

Your Children Waiting

Some of the most memorable photos that your family photographer will snap during this photo shoot will be of your children eagerly awaiting the arrival of their parent. Perhaps you're at the airport, and the children are staring out of a window toward the tarmac. A talented photographer can get an impressive image in this situation, perhaps getting the reflection of the child's face in the window as he or she stands with a hopeful facial expression. If you're waiting at home, the photographer may capture your children feverishly working on a "Welcome Home" piece of artwork to display.

The First Moment

When a serviceman or woman arrives home from overseas, there are few things more powerful than the initial moment that he or she sees his or her family. Regardless of where you're meeting your spouse, the family photographer will know how to set up in the right position to capture the looks on your faces. The photographer may even use a second photographer so that one camera can be trained toward the face of the arriving armed forces member and the other camera can aim at your face and the faces of your children.

Embraces And Kisses

Your family photographer will also be on hand as your family races to hug and kiss one another. Don't worry about the photographer getting in the way during this important minute — he or she will know exactly where to stand so as not to distract you, but still be properly positioned to capture the scene. An image of a serviceman picking up his daughter in an embrace or kissing his wife on the lips can be an image that you display with pride in your home.

The Ocean and Photography: My Two Loves Combined

Ever since my parents allowed me to snap a few photos on their camera on vacation when I was a young child, I have loved photography. While we lived in the Midwest, I became hooked on taking photographs of the ocean and boats when we visited the Florida coast during one of our trips together. I found that just being near the ocean really made me happy, and after we returned home, I was able to "take the ocean with me" to experience that same feeling by taking photos of it. Being near the ocean is so calming and uplifting, but most people don't live near the coasts and don't get to experience its beauty every day. I now live by the ocean, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips about how you can best photograph the things you love.
