Happy Friday friends! I hope you have had an awesome week. I apologize for skipping out last week. I worked like crazy all week and then went out of town to shoot a wedding. I ran out of time to get a post up before I left, and wifi was spotty and slow on our road trip. I eventually gave up. I'm sorry. :/

This week I have pics to share from our trip. We went to Charlottesville for a few days and I shot a wedding with a friend there. We thoroughly enjoyed the mountains and the weather was fantastic! We were able to explore Monticello, which we have been wanting to do for many years. We also spent some time exploring the campus at UVA. It was a great trip, I just wish we could have stayed longer. The mountains are SO gorgeous! Here are a few pics from our trip. My kids are super uncooperative with photos these days so no smiling family shots...

Happy Friday! So this week was pretty much a bust as far as photos go. I spent most of the week dragging through editing marathons, prepping for a full month of weddings, sick for 6 days, and I sent my cameras off for much overdue sensor cleanings. Also, I'm way late posting this, so you know, #winningatlife as usual. Anyway, barely getting by is all I can manage some days, so here it is. Weekly highlights via iPhone -  me trying to rest and recover from strep with a pooch who has other plans hovering overhead and some Halloween shopping shenanigans. Exciting, I know.  I did edit and deliver 1242 images though.

How was your week?

Happy weekend friends! It has been another week of nose to the grindstone here. Productive but painful. I have done nothing but spend just about every waking hour either working or tending to our sick crew. After a week of disinfecting, habitual hand-washing and pumping vitamins, I have finally succumbed to illness. I don't know that it's strep, which I had many times as a kid, or just some cold virus, but it's got me. Fortunately, I don't feel as poorly as my children seem to, at least not yet. I hope it passes quickly as I have a TON more editing due and several client appointments this weekend, including a sunrise session.

My images this week include a trip to Fort Monroe for a client session. Fort Monroe, named for James Monroe, was completed in 1836 and has seen such visitors as Abraham Lincoln and Edgar Allen Poe, Jefferson Davis & Franklin D. Roosevelt, among others. The fort was constructed during the War of 1812, but the site was "discovered" by the first settlers of Jamestown in 1607. It is a unique and interesting historic spot to say the least.

Other random shots include house-bound craziness and a beach pano. How was your week?

Happy Friday all! This week was especially crazy with hubs out of town and me wrangling work, kids and schooling solo. Fortunately he's back now, but I have a super busy work weekend ahead, and Little Miss came down with a high fever and body aches last night. Thank goodness for coffee and Aleve. They will be staples of my diet for the next few days.

I am excited that fall is here and the leaves are starting to change. It's in the mid-80s still, so it doesn't quite feel like fall, but a few signs of its debut are beginning to appear.

Happy Friday friends! I hope you've had a great week. Our week was productive, but I'll be honest, I am utterly exhausted. Back to school, back to kids' activities, busy portrait season, adulting...all of it is a bit overwhelming at the moment.

And in all day-to-day madness, I really haven't taken any personal pics. When I think about it, it has actually been months, many months, since I have spent any time on anything creative just for fun. I shoot all the time for clients, but any creative exploration has fallen by the wayside. I miss that freedom.

Anyway, my eyes are crossing and my kids are late for bed, again, so I'm posting the few iPhone pics I have to share and hopping off for the night. Here's hoping next week is a bit less hectic.

Happy weekend all! This week went by so quickly with the holiday, back to school, client sessions... the days are a blur and I'm totally exhausted. I have accomplished quite a bit, but looking at the mountain ahead, it seems like not enough. 

We did have some family fun last weekend. Hubs and I took the kids out for dinner Friday (totally casual sandwich shop, but super yummy). It was our anniversary (16 years!). I was supposed to work, so we didn't have plans for a date night. I ended up not having to work after all, so we headed out for a quick bite and enjoyed some live music.  We also spent some time pool-side over the weekend, and I hit the beach for a couple of client sessions. What have you been up to?
All iPhone pics this week :)

Keeping positive thoughts and prayers for all those touched by these crazy storms & wild fires. Stay safe and have a great weekend!

Happy holiday weekend friends! Looks like we'll be having rain and wind for much of the weekend, but I am enjoying the cooler temps. We're heading back to school Tuesday, so I have plenty of work to keep me busy indoors anyway.

This week was mostly nose to the grindstone with work. We did have another family birthday celebration last weekend. And I'm also sharing some pics from the newborn session I had with my new nephew and his family, even though they were taken a few weeks ago.

Mostly iPhone:

New babe.

How was your week?

Sending prayers for all those effected by Hurricane Harvey, and more prayers that this next storm heads off to sea.

Happy Friday! I have lots to share this week and sadly I am behind on editing. I've been buried in work and trying to catch up. I have to run off to an appointment this AM, but will come back and update this post later today. Just wanted to get the linky up and wish you all a wonderful weekend!

 Updated to add: We had two big birthdays at our house this week and lots of cake! Hard to believe my kiddos are growing up so fast. : /

Happy Friday friends! I'm running a little behind today, my apologies! I'm up to my eyeballs in work and birthday preparations for Little Miss. I spent most of the week shooting at the beach and editing, editing, editing. I know much of the country has gone back to school already, but we're still in summer mode here. Most days I edit, prepare contracts, tackle admin stuff (cook, clean, launder, child rear, dog wrangle, etc. etc.) and then plant my toes in the sand for a beach session.

I don't have much in the way of personal pics this week, as we didn't do anything noteworthy. I am pretty fortunate to witness so many summer sunsets though. Next week shall be more fruitful.  I'll have birthday pics and baby pics of my new nephew. :)

How was your week? Are you in back to school mode or still lingering in the last days of summer?

Thank you for visiting! Please link up your posts from this week and have a wonderful weekend! :)

Hi friends! I'm back from another weekend of travel and it was a loooooooong trip. Successful, but we spent 19 hours in the car so that I could shoot for 7.  It was a butt-numbing ride, but the wedding was gorgeous and the church was amazing!

 I tried to take some pics as we drove through the mountains, but we really didn't have time to stop and sightsee. We hit a big storm on the way there with hail, heavy rain, high winds, even a tornado warning that had us taking cover. On the way back, I was just exhausted and sore, so I didn't get any beautiful mountain shots as I had hoped. 

I went straight from the frying pan into the fire with multiple sessions this week. Rain wreaked havoc on my schedule and I had a sunrise session Thursday AM that had me up at 4 and rushing back home for hubs to head straight to work for an early meeting. It was a gorgeous sunrise though, and I have a couple of shots from that. 

How was your week? I hope you had a great one!

Whoa this week went by fast. Probably because I've been insanely busy with work. Last weekend's wedding was fantastic and the whole family had a great time visiting Lynchburg. We had not been before, and we all enjoyed the mountain views for a change! It did wipe me out though, and I've had sessions every day this week. Plus, I have another big wedding weekend this week. I may need a vacation from summer. :)

Here are a few pics from our adventures:

If you'd like to see images from the wedding, I've blogged some on my Melissa Bliss Photography site here.
