It’s Been a While…

Published June 1, 2017 in Children, Military, Personal, Travel, Uncategorized

Hey friends, Long time no update, I know! Since I was last actively photographing and updating, a lot has gone on in the MB Reese family. First off, we are an Air Force family so it’s only natural that we’ve moved. Twice. We left the Fayetteville, NC area for the deep South, by way of San Antonio, Texas. We spent 6 months living in San Antonio and enjoyed living in a big city, exploring small towns of Texas, and of course – the Tex Mex cuisine. We had a really great time and new it would only be a short […]

OpLove: The E Family

Below is a recent OpLove Pre-Deployment Photo Session that I took with Candace and Caleb and their adorable puppy Murph!  Caleb will be leaving soon on his first deployment and we took these photos at Wilson Park on Fort Bragg.  I love the way these photos turned out, and Caleb and Candace are such a cute couple.  But of course, Murph stole the show! As with all of my OpLove photo sessions, I am so happy to be giving back to such deserving families as these two…   To learn more about Operation: Love Reunited, Click Here.  To learn more […]

OpLove: Sabine & Emma

Published June 6, 2012 in Military, Portraits

I did a “While You’re Away” OpLove photo session with Sabine and her sweet puppy Emma.  Sabine’s husband Tim is on a year deployment, but thankfully only has a few months left!  We took these photos at Veterans Memorial Park outside of the Airborne and Special Operations Museum in downtown Fayetteville.  The field of American Flags was the absolute perfect place for these photos. I know Tim will love receiving his photo book of the two ladies in his life!   To learn more about Operation: Love Reunited, Click Here.  To learn more about my participation with OpLove, Click Here.

OpLove: The S Family

Published April 20, 2012 in Family, Military

This OpLove photo session was my first “R&R” session.  Dan is on R&R and unfortunately will be returning to finish off his deployment later this week.  We took these family photos around the rose gardens at Fayetteville Technical Community College.  They are such a happy and loving family and were so appreciative of these pictures.  It’s just another reason I enjoy participating in this great program…   To learn more about Operation: Love Reunited, Click Here.  To learn more about my participation with OpLove, Click Here. *** The photos and other content of this publication do not imply any endorsement […]

OpLove: The S Family

Published April 5, 2012 in Family, Military, Portraits

I did an OpLove Pre-Deployment Session with Jeff, Karyn and their sweet son Jackson.  Karyn is 20 weeks pregnant with a little girl, and Jeff will be leaving soon for deployment. Big Brother Jackson was so photogenic and absolutely adorable.  We took these pictures around McFayden Pond (Wilson Park) on Fort Bragg.  We took these at dusk, and the lighting was just perfect.  We also drove into base housing and took a few pictures in front of the blooming flowers. I absolutely love doing OpLove sessions, but it’s so bittersweet knowing that a loved one will have to be leaving […]

I had my first official Operation: Love Reunited photo session with the Charli, Cody & Isabella!  We took these pictures on Fort Bragg around Lower McKellar’s Lake.  It was the perfect time of the overcast day to take these pictures, and the family came with lots of awesome photo ideas.  Izzy really stole the show and was awesome in front of the camera.  The pictures of her and her dad are so touching.  These are Pre-Deployment pictures as Cody will be leaving for a deployment within the month.

Hall Reunion

Published December 5, 2011 in Family, Military

A neighbor was reuniting with her husband after a year deployment and asked me to take their reunion photos.  This was my first time at an Army reunion and it had so much more emotion than others I had been to!  Her husband Christian had been deployed for a year.  In that year, he came home early for R&R to witness the birth of their baby girl Stella.  This was Christian’s first time seeing his daughter after her birth, and the entire reunion was so beautiful and emotional.  I was so happy to be there and take some special photos […]
