Monday Morning, after a seven month Deployment, Sailors and Marines aboard the Uss Makin Island docked at their final port in San Diego. An array of families were there to welcome their servicemen and Women. I had the privilege to document one of these families. This family was not just any family, they are my friends. Witnessing the heartache on both ends throughout this deployment made documenting their reunion that much more special. Waterworks all around <3 Thank you "P" Family for letting me be apart of this beautiful and memorable time in your lives!
