{Love Session} Andrea & Joel

Rachel Smith Photography is back and she has A LOT of great military sessions to share on A Military Story, so be prepared for some great photos & love stories <3 To see more of her work click here:Rachel Smith on A Military Story

Andrea has shared a little about their story, "Joel and I met at our super small Christian high school. Considering he grew up in South Africa, it's a wonder he ever ended up in my small city, in my school of 15 high schoolers. We started dating in early 2011, and he left for boot camp September 2011. We dated for a year and a half before we got married, just two months after I turned 18. I waited to move until I was finished with the college semester I was enrolled in, and I joined him at Camp Lejeune a few months after we were married. A month after I moved, he left for deployment training and deployed shortly after. He was gone for 9 months total. After he returned we needed some new pictures taken, so we had these pictures done with the ever talented Rachel Smith. She did an awesome job, and I now have these beautiful memories throughout my whole house. Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite."

{Homecoming} Emily & Michael

I'm BAAAAACK and trying to catch up with emails and + blog posts!! Today Missy Rich Photography is also back with a sunny Hawaiian homecoming and if you missed her other homecoming make sure you check that one out too! Missy Rich Photography is based in Oahu, Hawaii. Missy is an Air Fore wife who met her husband in High School 10 years ago and have been together ever since. High school is also where her passion for photography started, but she didn't start her photography business until a few years ago. Before she PCSed to Hawaii she found the Welcome Them Home website and wanted to give back in a special way so she signed up to become a Welcome Them Home photographer.

Missy shares "This was one of the sweetest homecomings I have had the chance to be apart of! Emily was counting down the days until Michael returned from his first 6 month deployment. They unfortunately had to spend most of their first year of marriage apart. But now that Michael is home, they will be enjoying their 2nd year of marriage and having fun exploring the island of Oahu!" Mahalo Missy for sharing!

{Family Session} Daddy's Little Girl

Krystal Silva is back with the most adorable family session!!! If you missed her last homecoming post, make sure you check it out.

"These two people mean the whole world to me as they are my people. My handsome husband is a crew chief for MEDEVAC here at Hunter Army Airfield. He works so hard and loves what he does and I am so grateful he is mine. The little Princess is my baby girl. She is the absolute light of our life. Everyday is a good day when she is with us. She is sassy and spunky and has the best little personality. I thought I would share this session because it is the last one I get to do at our home here is Georgia as we are going to be headed to Hawaii very soon! Across the street from my house is this lovely location and it has been so awesome having it there. Whenever Emma and I need to unwind this is where we go! Taking photos is my pause button, I love capturing these moments." Mahalo Krystal for sharing your photos and best of luck with your BIG move!
