Homecoming Photography

Do you enjoy photography? SOS San Diego is proud to offer FREE pier side photography to our Surface Navy community. We would love your help, as we capture special moments for sailors and their family members during homecoming events.

There are few happier moments in our lives than when we welcome our active duty spouses home from deployment. We share the photo gallery from each Homecoming with the ship's Ombudsman or FRG President to be distributed amongst the crew. It’s a great way for us to serve our community by capturing the memories of a special day.

Please contact Michelle Davenport for more information and to get your name on the volunteer roster (no iPhones for this please)  sossd.homecomings@gmail.com




How to request SOS photographers for your homecoming:



SOS Homecoming Policies & Procedures
SOS San Diego will provide volunteer photographers to capture your homecoming memories on the pier. This service is FREE to
our SURFACE Navy families. It is volunteer driven, so please review the following well in advance of your command’s homecoming
so SOS San Diego has time to rally volunteers.

I.  Contact SOS Homecomings at sossd.homecomings@gmail.com no later than two (2) weeks prior to your ship’s estimated date of arrival to request a volunteer photographer.


II.  Due to scheduling and volunteer availability, we are only able to do two (2) ship homecomings a day. This is “first come, first served” situation; the earlier you reach out to us the better!

III.  Please have ONE point of contact (ex. FRG President, CO/XO spouse) who will handle the details. Having more than one point of contact opens the door to miscommunication and confusion.

IV.  Your command’s POC will be responsible for ALL communication with the SOS Homecoming Chairman.

V. Your command POC is responsible for

      A.sending the initial request for Homecoming Volunteers

      B.greeting the Homecoming Volunteer on the pier

      C.responding to the Homecoming Chairman’s confirmation email with date, time,pier

      D.securing parking spaces and addition to base access list (if necessary) for the

Homecoming Volunteers

VI.  After photos have been taken and uploaded to Flickr, an email with the link will be sent to the POC to distribute to everyone associated with the ship
