Welcome Home!

More photos to come!



My amazing husband returned home on Wednesday after several months of being deployed. Yeah! I am so glad to have him back.

Family and friends gathered at the Air Force base to welcome home all the soliders. It was like stepping into a movie: children holding signs, husbands with flowers, wives with balloons. It was so moving to watch loved ones reunite.


For a photographer's standpoint, lighting was horrible. The sun was so bright and I struggled with my exposure. So these are not my best pictures. But I wanted to try to capture the emotion of the day. I hope you enjoy them.

Hey Renee, I am so glad your husband is home safely!!! Yeah!! ABout the big pics on my blog. When ever you upload all your pics switch to edit in HTML mode. Towards the end of each picture paragraph code there will be the number s400, I switch mine to 800 because that is what I have my margins set to. You will have to change your margin settings so the entire picture will show up but I can't remember how I did that. I know I just googled it and then played around with the HTML code? I hope this helped! If you have more question I would love to help if I can! Hope to keep in touch!

I had that problem too! When ever I size my images for the web I make sure the longest side is smaller than the 800 pixels. I do mine at 600 on the longest side. It works for me, but I say just play with it! Hope that helps
