Happy Friday friends! Sorry for getting this post up late today. This week was a busy one and I had a late session at the beach last night. On my way home I stopped to take a few pics of these colorful kayaks. I have photographed them before, but they just look so cool all lined up in a rainbow. I couldn't help myself. :)

The rest of the week was spent editing tons, carting children to and fro, enjoying some family time while my mother-in-law is in town, and pushing toward the end of the school year. How was your week?

Thanks for visiting! I wish you all a wonderful weekend, and I wish a very Happy Father's Day to all the awesome dads out there!

Happy weekend all! This week was a full one. I worked quite a bit, and we had a birthday celebration in the family. My big girl is 13! Now I have two teenagers in the house - yikes! We also got to spend a whole day babysitting my adorable niece and nephew, which was such a treat! 

All in all it was a great week and I am so thankful for the family time.

Hey friends,

Happy Friday and welcome to June! We are swinging right into summer. The school year is winding down, my beach sessions are picking up, it's hot and humid outside and the mosquitos are vicious. Feels like summer to me.

Last weekend we spent a day at the pool enjoying Memorial Day food and festivities, which was tons of fun. We also took the kids to a baseball game this week. All pics except the first are iPhone because I've been lazy, and because I'm still sore from the last wedding I shot. I seriously think I sprained my middle finger shooting, ha ha. It has never happened before, but holding up 8 lbs for 8-9 hours is too much for this old lady I guess.

Happy weekend friends! The past couple of weeks have been busy with work and kids' activities. I'm looking forward to a long weekend! How about you? I do have to work and shoot a couple of sessions, but I am excited for some family time too. And hopefully some sunshine-y days after loads of rain last week. What's on your agenda? 

My pics this week are of tulips. Only in the last image are the flowers actually a different color. The first three shots are of the same flowers. I was just playing around with the processing, but kind of like the way they turned out. Which is your favorite?  

And I'm curious, what's your favorite flower? I love so many of them, but ranunculus and peonies are definitely high on the list. Photographing wedding flowers all the time makes me wish I had a much bigger garden, and time to tend it.

Have an awesome Memorial Day weekend!

Happy Friday! This week has been a wet one for us. So. much. rain. And it's likely to continue all weekend. Fortunately, last weekend was lovely! Sunny and almost summer-like.

On Mother's Day, we hit the pool at my mom and stepdad's house for an afternoon of leisure, family time, and delicious BBQ. It was extra special because we were able to enjoy it with my grandmother too, who recently celebrated her 103rd birthday. It was a great day!

My pics this week are iPhone shots from our festivities, along with a few from Girls Scouts. Our troop held a Pinewood Derby and a cake contest this week. My girlies scored a few awards too! I was proud of them for putting in the work to participate. They made a buttermilk chocolate layer cake with cookie crumble topping, and a sour cream chocolate chip pound cake. :)

Happy Friday all! This week has been a busy work week for me, so I haven't spent much time on personal pics. However, I did treat myself to a bunch of peonies from the grocery store the other day (a rare treat). Since most of our spring blooms have faded, I have a few peony pics to share.

Aside from that it's been a bit dull around here - sorry! I do hope your week has been lovely and  I wish you a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

Join the Fight for Net Neutrality - Speak Up Now!

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

RED ALERT: The FCC ordered an end to net neutrality, but Congress is about to hold a vote to save it. Easily contact your lawmakers and demand they vote for net neutrality:

The Senate will vote to overturn the FCC’s disastrous decision in mid-May, and we need just one more U.S. senator on our side to win and move on to the House of Representatives.

Without net neutrality, ISPs will be able to block apps, slow websites, and charge us extra fees that none of us can afford. They’ll control what we see and do online.

If we don’t make enough calls to Congress, lawmakers will think we don’t care and the FCC will get away with killing net neutrality. ISPs will gain the power to restrict the Internet’s usefulness for independent news, creative work, and social change—a devastating blow to just about everyone online.

Easily contact your lawmakers and demand they vote for net neutrality:
And help spread the word. Thank you!!

Hey friends, how was your week? Ours was busy - lots of work, but some fun too. I had two weddings, which wipe me out. Plus we're pushing toward the end of the school year, and hubs has been working late most days too. The weather has warmed quite a bit though, and it's feeling like summer is creeping close. It's been near 90 degrees for the past couple of days. We have enjoyed some outdoor play and lots of walks and bike rides.

I don't have much to show in the way of pics this week. Hundreds of client images, but only a few of my own kiddos. These were freelensed, and poorly I might add, so yes they are out of focus. But, I love them anyway because I managed to get 3 in the frame together, and they stopped arguing for a nano-second. The soft focus even seems to take the edge off of the darts they throw at each other, ha ha.

What's new in your corner of the world? Link up below and have an awesome weekend!

Rolling into another weekend! Where the heck has April gone? It has been a busy month of birthday celebrations, work, Girl Scout camp, schooling... it flew by! I hope May takes a more leisurely approach to passing. I'm not quite ready for summer. I'd also love for the spring blooms to keep hanging on. We still have lots of dogwood flowers and azaleas to enjoy. The pink cherry trees have shed their petals in the rain & wind. They are mostly green now. But the dogwoods are putting up a good fight this year. This week I have pink dogwood images to share.

I'm shooting an elopement Friday morning, a family session Saturday and a wedding on Monday, so the next few days will be full. I'll be traveling to Colonial Williamsburg and I can't wait to see how the gardens look up there. Maybe I'll have more flowers to show next week...or maybe some actual photos of my family, ha ha. Maybe... What's on your agenda this weekend?

Thank you for visiting this little ol' blog. Please share your posts below. 
I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Happy weekend all! I hope your week has been awesome. I shot a wedding on Saturday, so that pretty much wiped me out for the weekend. Other than that, we've just been plugging away at school to finish out the year, and work has picked up for me so you know, work.

We've had some chillier than usual days, but I am still enjoying the spring blooms. Hence, more freelensed flower photos for your this week. Sorry if I'm boring you, I just love them so. Up this week: pink cherries and more dogwoods. :)

How was your week? Please link up your posts and have a great weekend!

Yip yip, it's Friday! Don't know why I'm so excited because weekends off are a thing of the past for me, but the weather is warming, the flowers are blooming and I'm feeling inspired by all the lovely changes unfolding. Last week I gave you dogwoods, this week: cherry blossoms and wisteria. :)

Last weekend we had an awesome visit with my MIL and nephews. They came up from North Carolina to help celebrate my son's 16th birthday. (Still can't believe it has been 16 years since I became a mom.) We took the kids to the Virginia Air and Space Museum in Hampton and had a great time exploring.
