{Homecoming} Jessica & Matt

Brittney Livingston Photography is back with a homecoming from the same day as Ashley and Brian. If you missed the other homecoming click here
"Matt was returning from his second deployment with VMFA(AW)-224 and Jessica was beaming with excitement. Matt has been in the squadron about three and a half years and done two 7-month deployments. The first time they hopped between Japan, Guam, and Thailand. This time he was mostly in Japan, but went to the Philippines and Korea too. It doesn't sound so bad, but between the two deployments and going away to a school in between, he had been away for a total of 17 months out of the 30 months that they have been married! Jessica is definitely happy to have him home, and looking forward to their next tour, which is three years, non-deployable!" Thank you Brittney for sharing these homecomings and thank you to Matt for your service.

{Homecoming} Ashley & Brian

Brittney Livingston Photography is a military spouse who LOVES homecomings! For her, seeing families and loved ones reunited is something that will never get old! Brittney is available for family, child, newborn and military lifestyle photography in Beaufort, SC.

Brittney has shared more about Ashley and Brian's homecoming. What is unique about their reunion is that it was Ashley who was coming home!! "It was so sweet seeing Brian standing there with all of the wives waiting for Ashley to land! Ashley, a WSO (Weapons Systems Operator) was returning from her fourth deployment to the Western Pacific. This particular deployment lasted six and a half months, making stop is countries like Thailand, Singapore, Australia, Korea Japan and Malaysia. She and her boyfriend, Brian, met at the Weapons and Tactics Instructor course in Yuma last year (not really where you'd expect to find someone...), which is funny because they both had been stationed in Beaufort for several years and had never met before." Brittney has another happy homecoming session to share from this same day which will be on the blog Friday, so make sure you check back again.

{Babies} Izzy

Pleasantly Captured Photography is run by Al Vargas, mom to a silly little dude, two goofier fur babies and wife to a U.S. Marine. Although Al appreciates all genres of photography, she is most passionate about maternity, newborn and child portraits. She is currently serving Jacksonville, NC, home of Camp Lejeune, and surrounding Coastal Carolina cities.

Al shares, "Sweet Izzy's parents and I were on the same page from the start of session planning; there was to be lots of pink, owls and most importantly, we wanted to represent her Daddy's faithful service to the Marine Corps. This session was a dream because Izzy was such a sleepy little one, which allowed me to achieve some absolutely gorgeous images. They are all my favorite, but the image of Izzy smiling while her Daddy is cradling her in his Dress Blues makes my heart flutter! That will definitely be on a very large canvas in my studio!" Thank you Al for sharing these precious photos and also the accessory companies: Fancy Girl Bow-Tique // Flourishing Creations // Kasey's Creations - USMC Cammie Pants.
