I know deep in my hear that photography will never grow old. Styles change, people come and go, but the essence of capturing the most precious moment of a person's day, year, or life will never be outdated. I was absolutely honored to witness one of the most special moments I've seen so far.
PJ had been out to sea on the USS Bainbridge for about 7 months. In that time, Krista not only survived but thrived, and gave birth to their first child - a sweet little girl. Then, on a rainy day in Norfolk, Virginia, PJ & Krista's entire little family was reunited again. Each new mom was led up to the deck for some one-on-one time when their husband first got off the ship.
The moment PJ saw his family, his eyes lit up. And when he came out, I had to hold back tears while PJ gave Madi her first kiss from daddy, and gave Krista her first kiss in a very long time. I'll honestly never forget the joy that PJ and Krista had that day, and the love for each other and for their daughter.
PJ & Krista, I am humbled to have been there for such a sweet moment, and I was truly blessed by seeing your reunion. I hope and pray that PJ's time here will be full of joy and learning as daddy, mommy, and daughter are all together again!
