Hey friends! Happy Friday to you! I am running behind this week (as usual, but worse, ha ha) and I will have to come back tomorrow with some pics. I wanted to get the linky up though, so here is my pitiful post.

We have 7 birthdays in our family between July and August, plus they are two of the busiest months of sessions for me. We've had all that going on, plus car repairs, homeschool planning, etc., etc. So there is it. My juggling arms are tired and I'm dropping balls. Anyway, I will be back in the morning with a few photos. Sorry for the blank space in the mean time. I hope your madness is better managed than mine!

Update: I finally uploaded some iPhone pics from the week. Hubs and I had plans to go on the tall ship sunset cruise in Norfolk last weekend. Unfortunately, our excursion was rained out. So, we headed to the Waterside Marketplace for dinner instead. I snapped a few pics of the ferris wheel while we were downtown. Little Miss has been dying to go for a ride on it since it arrived several months ago. Her birthday is coming up, so we plan to surprise her with tickets. In other news, our oldest is now behind the wheel. Yikes! How was your week?

Welcome to Friday! I have been up to my eyeballs in work lately, as is typical in summer months. But Thursday hubs and I took a day to spend having fun with the kiddos. We surprised them with a trip to the water park. We spent the better part of the day slipping and sliding our way through unforgettable summer memories, while climbing umpteen stairs and spending wayyyy too much on food and parking. But, it's as close as we'll get to a vacation this year, so it was time and money well spent. And we ALL had a blast! There was no bickering, yelling, whining, and no work. It was such a treat!

I turned off and locked up my phone after we entered the park, so I don't have many pics to share. But I really needed a day to unplug and focus on family. Here are the few shots I took as we started our adventure:


What summer adventures have you enjoyed?

Happy Friday friends! Here we are heading into August, and summer seems to be slipping away. Last week I walked into the craft store and was bombarded with pumpkin spice everything. There were Halloween decorations everywhere, and clearance bins full of summer decor. This week, even the grocery stores have climbed on board with owls and pumpkins all over the place. Seems like we wish our lives away in the name of a buck.

Meanwhile, I'm still on the beach several times a week. Working that is, I have yet to take a beach day for leisure this year. : / This week's recap includes beach pics taken before or after client sessions, and a few iPhone shots from my niece's birthday party, which was tons of fun.

Hey friends, Happy Weekend! This week was a bit stressful with car repairs, horrendous weather and a packed schedule of client sessions - with out of town clients. So I was juggling all week to try to make it happen between the 4-6 inches of rain we received. I also has a wedding gallery due and 4 other sessions to get out, so I am thankful this week is just about over.

This morning I get to go snuggle a sweet new babe at a newborn session, so I'm kind of looking forward to that! Then it's back to editing and beach sessions this weekend, but having the wedding gallery done is a relief. They always feel like an albatross around my neck. 

We did take a break yesterday for a family outing to the ball park. Hubs got tickets to the mid-day game and the rain cleared out so we could enjoy it. It was hot, super hot, but lots of fun too. The Tides pulled it out in the last inning with a walk off home run. 

In other news, Little Miss lost her second tooth! Can you believe how tiny that thing is?? She's nearly 8 and has only lost two. The pups pined for the outdoors even though they hate getting their paws wet (I think they are part cat). And I found a giant mud puddle at my engagement session, which made for beautiful sky reflections. Pics this week area iPhone: 

(Side note, since the last iOS update I cannot seem to get my panos large enough to share. The file size is so small it pixelates on any screen larger than a phone. I can't find anywhere to change this in settings. Anyone have tips?)

I swear I don't know how the weeks zip by so quickly. It's Friday again?? Already? Amazing how time flies when you are tied to a computer all day. I guess I'd better catch up! I almost missed this post because I didn't realize the weekend so near.

Last weekend I had another birthday. I wish they'd stop coming by so often. Anyway, I was totally spoiled by my family and it was a pretty great day, despite getting older.  This week's recap is all iPhone (hubs surprised me with a 10 - yep spoiled). It's mostly birthday celebration, plus a few post session beach shots. The rest of the week was all about work and car repairs. (Remember that pole at the bank? Yeah, my car does too.)

Happy weekend friends! This week's post is totally random. Between sick kids, injured pups, editing marathons, running to & from sessions, scraping my car against a pole, and nursing back and hip pain, I am certainly feeling like I'm losing my wits. I must be a year older. Definitely feeling grayer.

Anyway, other than for shooting everyone else's vacation photos, I have not touched my camera this week. So random it is! And in random order: Phone snaps of post-session sunsets, post-session traffic jams, a pig on the wall, a dinner date with my grandmother, a crazy kid pilot, and downtown Norfolk after dusk - all complement of my old and ailing iPhone (hence the horrible resolution), which for some reason has now decided to record tiny tinee panos so I've had to trash those. 










So, how was your week? Link up your posts and share!

Happy Friday friends! It has been a busy work week for me and it flew by. It's crazy to think that we are in the 7th month of 2018 already. We have lots of birthdays coming up over the next two months or so. I know it will fly by, and then before we know it, we'll be heading into the holidays. Speaking of holidays, how was your 4th?

Ours was pretty quiet. We did some yard work, some errands, grilled some burgers and then headed off to the fireworks downtown. It wasn't a terribly exciting holiday, but hey, it wasn't work, right?
Here are just a few pics from around town this week:

Friday!! Happy weekend all! Even though I have tons of work,  and several sessions over the next week, I am happy that my favorite part of summer is here. 4th of July to me IS summer. The whole month of July just has that delicious summer feel - relaxed, bright, sunny (without miserable heat) and red, white & blue everywhere. I love it!

Soooo, this week was crazy busy with work, appointments & family stuff.  Yesterday I had to take my girlies to my photo shoot. Little Miss has been begging to visit the beach, so she was in heaven. It was a toasty evening, with little breeze, so we all came home sweaty, sandy, salty and tired. But it was also gorgeous out, and the sky was pretty spectacular.





So, what's your favorite part of summer?

Happy weekend all! Last week we had lots going on with family visitors, dance rehearsals, the AnimeCon & Father's Day, plus work, school and all that other life stuff. It was a great week though - lots of fun memories were made! My oldest girlie performed with some friends at the AnimeCon - which was very exciting and a new venture for us. I spent a lot of time wandering downtown while she rehearsed. Sooooo, you get lots of phone pics from lovely downtown Norfolk this week. ;)

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 canoes. 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.
