July 3rd was a special day for many families, as the large naval ship IKE returned home to Hampton Roads, reuniting friends and families. Elizabeth Henson of Elizabeth Henson Photos was asked to capture the precious moments for one specific family awaiting the arrival of the ship. Clad in the nation’s bold red, white and blue colors, this family looked absolutely adorable while keeping an eye out for the man of the family. The expressions on their faces when the first glimpse of the marine was seen are beautiful and priceless. They were expressions of true excitement, love, and connection felt between family members. The marine’s four-year-old son was beyond overjoyed to be back in his daddy’s arms, while his wife simply could not stop smiling. Having only spent ten days at home during the birth of his youngest child, dad just couldn’t take his eyes off of his beautiful baby girl who was now six months old. This family was thrilled to be reunited and completed again, and Elizabeth Henson Photos did an amazing job capturing their happiness and excitement. After an emotional day of waiting for the arrival of the naval ship and of welcoming a special family member home, Lindsay, her husband and their children have a beautiful gallery of photographs that capture the joys of an unforgettable day.
Welcome home IKE Naval Ship, and thank you Elizabeth Henson Photos for sharing these cheerful and beautiful pictures!
