I absolutely love photographing homecomings.
There is nothing like it in the world - so full of raw emotion. It even gets me from time to time and I'll notice I need to wipe away the tears.
Families get put through so much during deployments, it is hard to describe to anyone who is not part of that world. The tears, the joy, the hardship and loneliness - and of course the countless days, hours, minutes, that never seem to end - but they do end and when that moment comes, there is no bigger joy than that experienced by the re-united family.
