Richmond, VA – Maymont Mansion – Thankful

When the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) reunited back in late 2007, I was one of the lucky fans who saw them live on the Today Show on May 16, 2008, their first live concert since 1994!  Now an adult, it was exciting and surreal to watch the boyband of my childhood performing right in front of me.  Donnie Wahlberg (my favorite New Kid) flashed his million dollar smile at me and my heart raced as I smiled back.

Lizzy’s Latest – Vince Camuto Lorrana Dress Sandals

One of the best things about living in the Washington DC area is the endless options for photo shoot locales.  We decided to drive into Washington, DC to check out the Botanic Garden situated on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.  We found great parking just across the street from it and only had to walk a short distance.  I was looking forward to the shoot until we walked in:  humidity greeted us and the tight walkways were streaming with visitors.  I gave my dad a disapproving look, but he still wanted to take some “test” shots.  We spent about 15 minutes there before I was over it.  Diva behavior according to my dad!  😉 (more…)

Washington DC – The Capitol – The Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice Adventure

As much as I love kids, there was a time when I never wanted any of my own.  That mindset evolved to if I ever had kids, I only wanted boys.  Then, my brother, Michael, and his wife, Shannon, had my niece, Kristin and that sentiment went out the window.  (more…)

Washington, DC – Jefferson Memorial – Ode to my Father

One of the earliest lessons my father taught me was to always honor your commitments.  Integrity is one of my dad’s greatest virtues and it guides him in all aspects of his life.  With my dad, if he’s committed to doing something, he ALWAYS follows through.  He is simply a man of his word.     (more…)

wed-1-img_1358-finalThis photo shoot continues our tour of the Petersburg National Battlefield.  This time we took pictures in an area where a handful of men from the Union army clandestinely dug a mine that reached the Confederate lines.  Once under the Confederate position, the mine was filled with explosives and detonated!  The explosion caused the Earth to tremble propelling Confederate men and artillery into the air and creating a huge crater that was at least 30 feet deep and approximately 120 feet wide!  (more…)

Petersburg, VA – The Crater – Unexpected Surprises

Sometimes, life’s wonderful moments happen unexpectedly.  About a month or so ago, my friend, Bill, surprised me.  He said he would be in my area attending his older brother’s pinning ceremony for promotion to Colonel in the United States Air Force!  I was so happy for Bill and his family because many years before, their father had a similar pinning ceremony when he was promoted to Colonel.  Their military service had come full circle and I can only imagine the pride and joy beaming from their hearts as Stephen was pinned.

Visiting Civil War battlefields is a pastime my dad and I share.  So, anytime we can combine a visit with a photo shoot makes for a lively afternoon.  This shoot took place at the Petersburg National Battlefield.  It was here approximately 152 years ago that Union General Ulysses S. Grant lay siege to Petersburg in a successful attempt to destroy Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s army.  General Grant understood that devastating the Confederate’s main supply line at Petersburg would eventually secure the fall of Richmond, the Confederate capital.  (more…)
