There’s something to be said for young women who know how to kick it in the library and in the country.

Normally it takes 4 years to earn a bachelor’s degree. It took this lady half the time. That’s quite the accomplishment if you ask me.

To celebrate and remember 2014 we took these shots outside while there was still some sunshine left. Congratulations Dorothy and best of luck on your future endeavors!

Virginia Snow Day

We got about 2-3 inches of snow here in Suffolk, VA last night. My northern roots are laughing at this amount but it’s a welcome sight regardless. Staying off the road today. There’s definitely enough snow to make a snow angel but I prefer to observe the snow from behind a lens instead of rolling in it.

Snapped a few of these with my new 50 mm this morning when the snow was still fresh.

Summer tiki lights that never got taken down. Snow lights now!

Backyard Sledding

When we have snow down here, we have to make the best of it right in our own backyard. It was all about Nick experimenting with different sledding material was entertaining at the very least.

He tried blocks of wood, larger cookie sheets, a skim board, and all resulted in him falling into a snow angel at the end. What a good sport! 

Wyatt Little

World, meet Wyatt. This little guy is wonderfully sweet. A big thanks to parents Brittany and Charlie, you guys are so patient! I hope you enjoy these.

 

Shot with Canon 7D. Softbox lighting with energy efficient bulbs. A bean bag was used to prop up the baby in a comfortable position. Feedings happened regularly with plenty breaks to reduce the stress on Wyatt.
