Welcome Home! Oahu, Hawaii Military Homecoming Photography

I love military homecoming sessions! This past Valentine's Day I got to photograph Katerina's husband coming home to Pearl Harbor, HI and seeing all the joy of sailors from the USS Texas reuniting with their families.

All last week was rainy and stormy weather and the morning of Valentine's Day was no exception. The night before I ran to the store to find a clear(ish) umbrella and watched the weather obsessively until it was time to meet on Pearl Harbor.  We watched the submarine pull into the harbor and it passed the families the rain slowed down and by the time we got to the pier the rain was almost done! When her husband came off the rain was a light sprinkle and we were able to get lots of photos. They held each other so tight he forgot he had a rose in is hand for her! Her husband also earned his Dolphin Pin (which is a HUGE deal for a submarine officer, google it) and waited until he was on land so Katerina could pin it to him.

Needless to say, with my husband gone (but not for much longer) it was wonderful to celebrate Valentine's Day by documenting a couple coming back together again! 

I'm really trying to get better at blogging, so if you'd like your session to be featured please let me know!

Aloha,

Welcome Home Lt. Kelly! Sarah Nail Photography, Military Homecoming Photography San Diego, CA

Yesterday I photographed the USS Rushmore bringing home Lt. Kelly back to San Diego, CA just in time for Christmas! The Kelly's are friends with the Saade's and Lt. Saade came home too. These two men made their families holiday complete! Enjoy this double homecoming! 

Homecoming x3!

Last Friday SNP had its first TRIPLE homecoming at Mirmar base in San Diego, CA. My two second shooters (Zac and Anthony) were up with me at 4:45am in the rain and ready to go. We each had our client and were able to capture the moments when their spouses landed and families were reunited! I'm a sucker for a homecoming; in case you were wondering- yes I cry, but only when I'm editing! Is there anything better than love?! Welcome Home Deniz, Reed and Gunsalus!!!

Glamour In Nature

Mrs. W brought glamour into San Diego’s greenery. Well, by greenery I mean what used to be green due to the drought. Nature boudoir is a new trend and one I’m loving! It’s a unique twist on traditional boudoir and gives the shoot an unexpected elegant twist; and it makes a great gift. ;) If your wondering if we saw anyone, only one person on a bike who quickly whisked by, I don’t think they even knew we were there! Timing and location are key to this kind of shoot (and wardrobe).
