Friday Photo Journal - Week 27

Thursday, June 27, 2013

While it has been another busy week of work, I did managed to stop and smell a few flowers, and eat a s'more or two. I have been chained to my desk quite a bit, but I am trying to enjoy the best of summer as well. Here's a peek from our past week:

It's no secret that I love photography. And I love all types of photography, though I do tend to focus mainly on portraits. But, I truly adore lifestyle photography. I had such a wonderful time last weekend at a lifestyle session for a client. Her children were simply adorable, and so very sweet and welcoming. Her home was beautiful too. I couldn't have asked for a better backdrop or a sweeter family to photograph. What a blessing to meet so many wonderful families through my work!

I am still in the process of editing their gallery, but I thought I'd share a peek of the cuteness I am enjoying as I edit. :)
 I hope you all have had a wonderful Thursday! Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts.

Onto Wordless Wednesday... last night as I was busy editing a client session, I heard a some rummaging and then a little peep and giggle from Little Miss. When I turned around, I found she had been helping herself to my photography props and was all decked out asking for a "poto-shoot." I captured a few quick pics on our deck just before the sun went down. Gotta love her sense of style!

Thanks for visiting! Have a super Wednesday!

P52- Week 25

Monday, June 24, 2013

Happy Monday friends! I am up to my eyeballs in editing this week and haven't picked up my camera for anything other than client sessions, so I have no family photos to share. 

 Today I am sharing a peek of what I'm working on. This little cutie was so sweet. 
I just adore her blonde locks.

Friday Photo Journal - Week 26

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Hello sweet friends! I have missed you!! I have been so crazy busy this week that it was hard to squeak out enough images for a collage. I have taken no photos of my own family with my DSLR and only a few quick snaps on my phone, which I haven't even had time to edit. So, this week I'm afraid all I have to share is a smattering of poorly edited quick lifestyle pics. 

I feel like I am going a hundred miles an hour all day everyday, and I miss having time to relax and have fun with my kids. But, I am beyond grateful for all the work, especially when we needed it most. I had 4 shoots this week! That's a record for me, so far. And I'm up to my eyeballs in editing. But busy is good, as long as I can stay sane!
Here's a peek at our week. The pool last Sunday was a nice reprieve for a few hours. 

Thanks for visiting and linking up! I can't wait to see your pics!!

Little Things Thursday - Creative Captures

I love it when a plan comes together. Before a family shoot last week, I had a quick spark of inspiration for a shot at the beach. One $4 foam sword and a few hours later it all came together. I'm not sure this shot was on mom's agenda for the session, but I'm glad it was on mine. I love it. And I was darn lucky to sneak it in before we were told we weren't allowed on the rock jetty!

P52- Week 24

Monday, June 17, 2013

Hello friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend and a relaxing Father's Day. There was more work than celebration around here, but it was a gorgeous weekend nonetheless.

I have been so busy with work over the past week, that I'm afraid this little blog has been neglected. This week promises to be even busier, but I will check in as often as I can. Since I've been spending most of my time editing client photos, I haven't taken any photos of my own family except for a few iPhone snaps. What I'm sharing today is a pic I took yesterday evening after we'd had a swim at Nana's pool.

Friday Photo Journal - Weekly Link Up 25

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Woo hoo, Friday is upon us! It was as hot as blue blazes here today, but it looks like we'll have some gorgeous cooler weather for the weekend. I will spend much of it working, but hope to hit the pool again for a few hours. What do you have planned?

Last week brought swim days, a birthday party and a family photo session in the country. It was lots of work, and lots of fun too. What did your week look like?

Thank you so much for stopping in. I truly appreciate each of you who takes time out of your busy week to visit here and share! Have a safe and wonderful weekend! And Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there who work so hard to take good care of their families!

Little Things Thursday

Hello friends! Sharing a picture of my big 8 year old today. I am so thankful to have this wonderful, loving, creative child in my life. And filled with gratitude that she is healthy and well, and has grown into such a well-rounded, caring young lady. She's a fantastic big sister and my best helper around the house. She's growing up way too fast for my liking, but I am so proud of the who she has become.

WW- Family Farm Shoot

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Hello friends! I am busy today editing a shoot I did last night for the sweetest little family. We headed out to Smithfield, VA to Windsor Castle Park and an old farm setting. It was a gorgeous night and I really had a great time chasing their little monkey around. I came home dirty, sweaty and exhausted. It was totally worth it! Here's a peek at what I'm working on:

P52- Week 23

Sunday, June 9, 2013

Greetings friends! We had a fun weekend full of summer festivities. Saturday we had a wet and wild birthday party for my big girl who is now 8 year old! We rented a giant slip and slide and the kids all had a blast. It was so much fun! Sunday we hit the pool at Nana's house for the first time this season. The kids swam like fish all day. 
It was a great summer weekend, and I'm looking forward to more of them. 
Here are a few pics from the party on Saturday. I can't believe my girl is 8 already. My how time flies!

How was your weekend?

Hello my sweet friends! I am so thrilled that you are here.  It has been a week of ups and downs here at the Rich house, and more in store for the weekend. We have a Tropical Storm Warning in effect for Friday and a big outdoor birthday party planned for Saturday for my soon to be 8 year old. Oy! 
Praying for good news and smooth sailing on all fronts here. I still have packages to wrap and a cake to bake too. Better get on the ball!

I hope to visit you all this weekend, but if we lose power it may take me into next week to catch up. Please do link up and share your photos! I always love seeing them :)
Here's my peek at our past week:
