I've gotten older since you've last seen me......

That's right. I celebrated a birthday this past weekend. I am now 28.....errr, I mean 38. A girl can dream, right? It was a wonderful weekend with one of my best friends planning the perfect girls day on Saturday and spending the day Sunday with family. On Saturday we vistited a few local wineries and Vintage Ridge, a new Vineyard in Rectortown Virginia, was probably the biggest hit of the day. They were so sweet to us and the wine there is very yummy. My favorite part was the overall atmosphere. In the tasting room there are tables and the wall opens up to a stunning view of the Virginia countryside. If you enjoy wine and vineyards, this one is a must.

My very best girlfriends. I see so many wonderful phases of my life sitting here - from a new friend from church to one of my BF since the 5th grade (who planned this awesome day), another BF since birth, my two sister in laws and a very dear friend of about 12 years. It was a wonderfully relaxing day with my girls.

Any excuse to wear a pink boa tiarra, right? I know it may come as shock to many of you that I didn't have that laying around the house. It was a gift along with the super cool birthday wine glass (seen to the right of me).

Thanks Paula and the rest of my girls for an awesome day!


You've got some "splainin'" to do. Okay, as always, I'll admit that I'm the worst blogger ever. Yes, ever. From Thanksgiving to mid January were very hectic with the tree falling on our house, out of town visitors and my husband's shoulder surgery. That then wen't into getting geared up for a busy Spring with outdoor sessions, as well as being in charge of my church's VBS for this year. So, I'm sorry that I've neglected my blog and I realize that I've got a lot of catching up to do =).

Baby Rhys

Are these not the brightest blue eyes ever? We intended on doing a newborn shoot with Rhys but these ended up being more of a 3ish month shoot. He was such a trooper and really seemed to be taking it all in. What a sweet boy and such a great family. Thanks guys and I look forward to seeing you guys again.

Nathan and family

This was such a fun newborn shoot because he was so bright eyed and bushy tailed in the beginning =). All of the hard work though eventually wore him out and we got some sweet sleeping shots as well. Thanks guys. I had a great time hanging with you all for the morning. We've always called his older brother "Baby Will", but I guess his title has now changed to "Big brother Will".
