Welcome Them Home - USS Albany

March 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Meet Ivan, Angela & Ava! I met them while welcoming home the submarine, USS Albany, at my lastest homecoming shoot! Here is their story. Ivan & Angela have been together for 5 years and married for a little over 3 years. Ivan is Navy Chief. He went over 17 years in the Navy in January. Ava was 10.5 months old when he left for deployment last August and is 18 months old today. They had very little communication for most of the deployment. Needless to say it was a very rough transition for them all. Ava took her first steps only days before he left for deployment. Now she is running around and trying her hardest to talk. You can tell by the look in Ivan's eyes that he is truly amazed by how much she has grown and how smart she is! - I got to witness this myself and it definitely shows in the photos!- The entire time he was gone Angela took tons of photos to document her growth and also took many videos for him to watch during their occasional ports. Angela found that constantly talking about "Daddy" and showing her photos and videos of him made Ivan's transition home so much easier! After 6 long months they are all finally together again! Angela & Ivan have eachother and Ava has her Daddy back. <3
