What do you do when a friend calls and asks for your help? You jump in the car at midnight, and drive to Camp Pendleton to photograph her husband’s homecoming, at 2am!
Well, it didn’t happen quite that sudden, but I did only have about 36 hours notice for Reid’s homecoming. Sarah had been unable to find another photographer for her husband’s return, from being deployed in Afghanistan for 7 months. During his absence, Baby Curtis had been born and was now just over 3 months old. He was about meet his Daddy for the first time, and Reid was about be reunited with his family! I was moved and tremendously honored to be there to capture it all.
Sarah, thank you for calling me and allowing me to be part of another important event in your life. I wish I could come to Japan with you to document your next Baby’s arrival! I will miss your beautiful smile and bubbly personality…
