I did a photo sesh a few months ago with a friend who had a baby while her husband was in Afghanistan. He was able to "attend" the birth via Skype, but obviously, that is not the same as actually meeting your baby.
She texted me two days ago and said she just found out he would be coming home early and asked if I would come along to take pictures.
Um. Of course!!!
What a beautiful experience it was!!
It wasn't like you see on TV where there are 400 soldiers looking for their loved ones, there were only a handful of soldiers who came back and so they had this intimate moment in the parking lot.
I suppose I don't really need to say anything more. I'll just let the picture speak for itself.
