Welcome Home USS Ponce

This one is for you Natalie! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family. I hope you love the photos. It was an honor to do them for you guys and I'm so glad it all worked out according to plan. It was a busy, cold, windy, emotional, happy, joyful day! LOL. See you when I get back!

Andrea :)


  1. Andrea you do beautiful work! And, of course, you had amazing subjects for this particular shoot. You captured their happiness and their moments perfectly. Thanks for sharing their joy with us!

  2. Thank you for sharing these moments with us, we watched through tearful eyes but thought it was a wonderful way for Adam and family to still be a part of Christmas day. Only wish we could have been there to give him a big hug and welcome him home also. We are so very proud of him.
    Love, Dad, Dawn, and Shan

  3. Andrea, this was beautiful. As you know well, the emotions that go along with deployment and homecoming are quite overwhelming and difficult to put into words. The kind of joy I feel when Adam finally comes back to us safe and sound is simply indescribable. This captured those emotions and has preserved those moments for all our lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting this together.
