Hering Homecoming | Military Homecoming | Abilene Texas Photographer

Our newest member of our military homecoming team is Kristi Hilligrass and she had the honor of photographing the Hering family as they welcomed Maj. Nate Hering home from his deployment. The experience the we get from documenting this time for families is a rush of emotions as we document the unfolding events of the reunion; watching the excitement as families look for the planes coming in, the joy when their loved one is on the ground, and the moments leading up to when their loved one steps off the plane and sees their family. There is nothing more special than witnessing a family not wanting to let go from the second they see each other.

Bakke Homecoming | Military Homecoming | Abilene Texas Photographer

My absolute favorite kind of session that comes every couple of months are military homecomings. There is nothing more incredible than witnessing a family being reunited after being away from each other for such a long period of time. 

I had the honor of photographing Capt. Michael Bakke returning home from his deployment and being reunited with his wife, Erin, and two kiddos, Molly and Harrison. It made my heart so happy and proud to see the pure joy and elation in Mike's face when he saw his family. I am so honored to be able to provide these families with beautiful memories! 

We have extended our military homecoming team to enhance our ability to provide more families with homecoming portraits with the beautiful quality and timeless memories. Kristi is the newest member of our team and photographed another family coming up on the blog shortly!

Emily + Justin | Maternity Session Sneak Peek

Just a little look into Emily and Justin's maternity session yesterday evening! I can't believe how gorgeously everything came together last night.

We had a storm that was sitting on the north side of Abilene all evening. It was threatening to end our session, but thankfully, the skies parted and we were able to get some stunning portraits of them. I can't wait to share the rest of this session!

Erm Family 2018 | Family Session Sneak Peek | Abilene Texas Photographer

Last week went spent one amazingly gorgeous Texas evening photographing the most photogenic and sweetest family! Their hands are full of gorgeous girls and lots of sass, but you can definitely feel all of the love. I had the hardest time picking sneak peeks for their session, so I just had to share a hand full of them.
