I went out searching for light at “my” park tonight. I have two sessions this weekend and I wanted to look for the perfect places to put them for amazing portraits. And as I looked around I realized that my client inquiry form is all wrong. I don’t do “traditional outdoor.” I don’t want a posed family in cut grass smiling at my camera. I want to go in the long grasses and sit in the wet earth. When you have a session with me, expect to get a little messy, to have to check for ticks later, and expect to wear bug spray. I also love the sun at 7pm. I suppose I will be changing my inquiry form from “traditional outdoor” to “exploring the forest and finding the light.” I also LOVE pounding the pavement in Old Town Leesburg– for those who want to wear high heels!
I used my cell tonight to remember the places I found. My kids got muddy and I stripped them naked afterwards to look for ticks, but it was GLORIOUS to snap these with my free camera app. And using my DSLR or SLR at your session would be even better!

Yesterday, we took a trip down to Williamsburg for the day. We have been trying to get to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens all month, but we got sick. Yesterday, we had tickets for a dinner with Santa. (Downsizing from our big pre-christmas trip we had planned complete with front of the line passes.) This time, snow was our nemesis and we have officially given up on Christmas Town. I’m disappointed, but not as much as I would be if they didn’t refund all our money.
We went over to Colonial Williamsburg instead and I snapped some pictures of my baby in the snow. The storm totally missed us in Northern Virginia, so she was ecstatic to play in the white stuff.
