Mia and Aaron | Deployment Homecoming Session

Mia and Aaron | Deployment Homecoming Session | Fort Campbell Kentucky Photographer | Whitney Erin Photography

Today I want to reminisce about a session I did over a year ago. This session, to date, has been one of my absolute favorites and one that means a lot to me.

Mia found me on Instagram and was in need of a photographer to capture her boyfriend’s deployment homecoming. How could I say no?? I had been wanting to do a homecoming session for as long as I could remember! So, we met at Starbucks to chat and get to know one another. She hired me right after that!

Little did I know she would become one of my closest friends. Mia is literally one of my rocks here in Clarksville. She’s the kindest, most level headed person I know and when I say she’s the most honest person…I mean it. She’s the person you count on to tell you the truth…even if it’s not what you want to hear. She’s the friend you can always count on, even if she’s miles away. Oh, and Aaron, one of the quietest people I’ve ever met but, he’s literally her other half and just as sweet as Mia. They are perfect for each other!

They’ve been through more than the average couple. Literally living apart from each other for most of their relationship. That is, until Aaron returned. This was the first time they’d be together for longer than just a short visit since Aaron joined the Army. I think their excitement and pure joy shows in these photos.


This last photo is my favorite. I went back to the stands to give Mia and Aaron a moment alone. Once I got back to our seats, I turned around and saw that they were literally in their own world out there. ❤ ❤ So, of course, I captured the moment. 😀

Mia, has her own blog– Simply Charette. You should definitely check it out!
