Virginia Fun

               So I went through and started to edit some of the pictures from my birthday trip down to VA again.  I had forgotten about some of the fun candid moments I had captured.  My daughter definitely stole the show the entire week.  She had a lot of fun with her princess camera.  I don't think she put it down for more than five minutes.  Gee, I just don't know where she gets it from :op  We wandered around Jamestown for a day as a family and these are the images I was able to take while constantly running after my daughter.  The first picture is on of two that I absolutely fell in love with.  I had seen this character for a brief second in the window and when I to go ask his permission for a picture, he had disappeared.  This put me on a manhunt for about 30 mins.  The result was more than worth it.  I have the other picture on my sight which is identical but in color and vertical.  The second picture is another favorite because it has the most beautiful little girl of course.  We got to play dress up for about two minutes before she got bored and wanted to explore more.  I was fascinated by all the historical details as you can tell in many of the pictures I took.  The heart lock was a nice addition.  Now if only they had a heart skeleton key to match.  One of the last places we were able to check out was the botanical gardens which were gorgeous.  I'm a sucker for roses of course so that day was a lot of fun.  My mini-me hammed it up with her camera as usual leaving for some great pictures on both ends.  She can always make me smile :o)  All of these images are for sale with the exception of the portraits.  Contact me by e-mail ( to inquire about prints.  Thanks guys!


  1. I've never been good at photography, so I always admire talent and skill when I see it. I love the hint of melancholy in these pictures.

    My fave, oddly enough, is the rooster, who reminds me of a Rhode Island Red rooster we had when I was a little girl.

    Lovely pictures.
