Small & Late, but none-the-less Great Homecoming | Military Homecoming | Fort Bragg, NC Photographer

As y'all know, each homecoming has it's own story to it. She contacted me at the end of January to book a homecoming session for her and her boyfriend in May. (I like her style! She made sure she had a photographer with LOTS of notice ensuring she'd get one ... and that one was ME!) :)

When she finally got a time frame in May, I made sure to block off a few days to ensure I'd be there for them. It was all looking fantastic for the first weekend in May and then she got the updates ... they had been pushed back a few days. Then they were up in the air with a date .... sigh, those darn military flights!

Finally, we were looking good, the 5th of May at 5:30pm. What a fantastic time! That's like golden hour for lighting and by the time they were to be getting in the car, the rush hour traffic would be off post.

Aha ... yet another push back ... May 8th at 3:30 .... in the MORNING! Gah! LOL

Listen, folks, if you book me and everything pans out with my babysitting needs and personal obligations ... I'll be there. Sitting with you at your location in the wee hours of night or the butt-crack of dawn. I'll have coffee in one hand and my camera in the other! ;)

There was literally 4 soldiers who walked of that early bird. I have never seen Green Ramp so empty during a homecoming. As you saw above, the rows of seating were empty except my client and the three other families. I had so much room to maneuver around the couple, I was in heaven! haha!

How cute are they?! They may not be married (yet) ;) but they still understand the hardships of a military life and the commitment (and struggles) that couples go through during these long periods of separation.

I just love the emotion of those reunion jitters and butterflies ... shoot, I get them watching these couples be reunited! lol

Make sure to book your reunion as soon as possible! To learn more click HERE.

PS ... can I let you in on a little secret? Must have been the reunion jitters, or constant time changes, or both.... but I had to do a little photoshopping on the sign .... can you see what needed to be corrected? ;)
