Happy Friday friends! We are finally stepping off of the ark here. It's been a very wet and wild week with several days of monsoon-like rain and flooding. Fortunately, we were prepared with sandbags so we avoided any major catastrophes. They actually closed the local school because of rain and flooding, which has never happened before in my 40+ years of living here.

After last Friday's sunrise elopement, followed by a family beach session, I was pretty much toast. The rest of the weekend was a blur of work, puppy care (our dane boy was neutered and had a gastropexy) and not much sleep. Then the monsoon ensued and this week was a washout. I'm really ready for a vacation from life for a bit. I could sleep for about 3 weeks, I think.

Today I'm sharing a few iPhone snaps from my early morning venture (I am not an early bird by any means, but it was pretty awesome to see the sunrise at the beach), along with shots of our puppy boy and then the kids exploring the lake in our back yard.


How was your week?
Please link up your posts and share your shots!

Happy Friday to you! I will admit from the get go that this is a pathetic post. I scoured my shots for something share-worthy and came up empty handed this week. I have had many client sessions, been lots of places, survived week 2 of homeschooling and still have nothing much to show for it. Hundreds of images were taken, but all for clients.

I have just one sunset shot that is really a throw away test shot, but I figured something besides my sad apologies had to take up space here. The week has been so hectic and stressful. The weekend promises only more of the same with several sessions, a sick girlie at home, a pup recovering from surgery and so much editing piling up it boggles my mind. So there you have it. I admit defeat this go 'round. I hope your week was more fruitful.



Please link up your posts and have a super weekend!

Happy weekend to you! I was really hoping to have more family photos edited for this week's post, but the week got away from me...back to homeschooling, client photo sessions, orthodontics appointments...and only 4 days to get it all done. Two more sessions and a wedding to shoot before I dive into next week, which will be even busier. Yep, fall is here!

I did take my girl out in the back yard one day for a mini shoot.  I played around with long exposures, loosely inspired by the work of Francesca Woodman. I'm sure they aren't everyone's cup of tea, but it was exciting and liberating to do something new and creative. 
Here are a few of images from that quick session:

Hey friends, welcome to the weekend! I apologize for getting this week's post up late. I had a session at the south end last night, followed by a long rainy ride home. And today we are prepping for the storm and inevitable flooding this weekend. Our yard and garage flood during big storms and it's always a huge mess. Especially with 3 great danes going in and out all day. Anyway, looks like my holiday weekend will be wet and laundry filled - that is if we keep power. Here's hoping!

This week I have only iPhone pics to share. I went north to Williamsburg for a family session and south to Sandbridge. Each about an hour away in either direction, also went to the Virginia Beach oceanfront for a family session (a part of the beach I don't frequent) and the storm was kicking up the sea as the wind whipped around. I usually take some iPhone pics when I visit new places - anyone else obsessed with panos like me?

Happy Friday friends! We've been busy celebrating this past week. Two of my kiddos had birthdays - so lots of cake for us! And presents, and ice cream and ice cream cake. Lots of photos from the festivities too.

First there was birthday cake baking. I was given very specific instructions, and then told that she knew how to do it best. (Get out of the way mom. ;)


Then, various gift opening opportunities at home and with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. and much jubilation. 
Top set is iPhone and please excuse the laundry. 

And, just like that, they are a year older. 
Aside from work, that pretty much sums up our week. How was yours?

Link up your posts below and have an awesome weekend!

Hi friends! Happy Friday!! I am so sorry for being so behind with posting. Truth is, I have squat to show for this week. Just trying to keep my head above water with work, family obligations, kid birthdays, back to school prep, etc., etc. Can you feel me? I'm sure I'm not the only one!

This little lady is having a birthday tomorrow. It is so bittersweet. My "baby" is getting so grown up and I could not be more proud. But, as she is my baby of the bunch, it's happening waaaaay to fast for my comfort. She'll be 6 tomorrow! And that means I'm ...... too old to count anymore. Oy!

What have you been up to this week? Please post your links below. Again, I sincerely apologize for not getting this up sooner. You guys are tops for putting up with me! ;) <3 nbsp="" p="">


Have a fun weekend!
