Hooray for a holiday weekend! I am beyond excited that I actually have the weekend off. (Well aside from editing, that is).  I did three shoots this week so that I could block off some family time and enjoy a bit of summer. Of course, the forecast is now calling for rain, rain, rain. I sure hope that changes so that we can enjoy a backyard bbq and some fireworks. 
This week was busy, but we squeezed in some old school summer fun after I bought the kids a small pool and slip and slide. I love watching them splash and play! The following are a mix of D750 and iPhone pics. 



We also spent a fun morning playing at a local pool where I met the lovely Angie Klaus and her beautiful family. Angie and I have been friends online for a while. She has offered great encouragement to me on my photography journey and I was thrilled to have a chance to meet her in person.  If you don't follow her work, you should! Find her page here
Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of the two of us together, but we were in bathing suits and ,you know, it wasn't an ideal photo op. I did take a couple shots of the kids enjoying the pool slide.


This was an iPhone snap of the sky as I left Sandbridge after a shoot this week. I loved the wave in the clouds. That little market in the bottom right is a treasure. It still has the old school cash registers (not digital) and circular conveyer belt check out, just like when I visited as a kid. <3 p="">

Happy Friday all! This week I actually have a plethora of photos to share. The first set is from a trip to the Children's Museum. I decided that we had been stuck in the house (due to high heat and humidity) and bound by work, school, doctors appointments and the like for long enough. A fun day was long overdue! I took the kids out for lunch at Chick-Fil-A, then to the Children's Museum of Portsmouth, and we even stopped for Slurpees on the way home. We had a blast! It was so much fun to just play for a day. I loved every minute. 
Then, on Father's Day, our plan was to take Dad out for breakfast. But, our lazy Sunday morning made for a lunch date instead. We then saw that Nauticus, a local nautical and naval museum, was having a "Dads get in free" special and we went for it. Two museums in one weekend, plus frozen yogurt on top! It was like a family vacation for us, ha ha. This week we dug into our end of year testing, so it was a nice break before the final push. All of these images were taken with my iPhone so that I could focus on the fun and not worry about lugging a DSLR around.

So last week was a total bomb. I completely forgot to post FPJ and I fully admit to being the worst blog host in the history of blog hosting. I shot a wedding last Thursday in 95 degree heat and high humidity and came home absolutely fried. I shot another wedding on Saturday in 95 degree heat and humidity and didn't even realize I had forgotten the blog post until Tuesday. Smh. I'm so sorry! Really I am. I should have prepared before hand but had weddings on the brain, along with getting galleries out the door, and I just dropped the ball. I apologize!

It took me a couple days to recover from last weekend and then I had two family sessions during the week, so I really didn't take many personal photos other than a few with my phone. Here's a peek at our extremely exciting week: (including the dentist, a visit from Mawmaw, summer walks, a lost dog found, both wedding locations, and sleepy kiddos)

Another week down - 2015 is surely flying by. When I wrote a check today and realized that we are in the 6th month of this year it boggled my mind. Half over already?! Hard to believe.

Last week was insanely busy for me with lots of shooting, including a wedding. This week I have a break from shooting - yahoo! But, still have tons of editing to do, of course. I did take this weekend off for my big girl's birthday, and to decompress before two more weddings next week. So, I actually got this week's FPJ up early! How 'bout that?!

Like most of the east coast, we have had lots of rain this week - for days. So, when the clouds broke yesterday for a bit, I took my little (or not so little anymore) outside to play. These images are far from perfect, but I adore them. They make my heart so full. Shooting from the heart beats technical precision any day in my book. ;)

Hi friends! So sorry for the late posting of this week's link up. The past few days have had me driving long treks to sessions. I came home last night exhausted, with SD cards to load and kids to put to bed.    Anyway, it has been a busy week and I worked most of last weekend, but we did manage to enjoy some fun over the holiday weekend. We headed to my mom's for a bbq and some swimming. The kids were brave enough to venture into the cold water and had a blast, but came out with blue lips.  I just dipped my toes in. The weather was gorgeous, but the water was just too chilly yet for me! I think I'll wait a couple of weeks for my first swim of the season. ;)  I did not take my camera to the pool so that I could just relax and enjoy my family. 
I did take the girls downtown on a scouting trip last week though and after a quick 30 minute trek, I came to the conclusion that I need to venture downtown to shoot more often! Today I'm sharing a few shots we took in the city.
