Lizzy’s Latest – Michael Kors Ciara Embellished Suede Slingback Pumps

There have been times over the last year when a lack of photo shoot planning led to a reliance on spontaneity.  This was one of those weekends.  Call it procrastination or laziness, perhaps a little of both, but I had no particular destination in mind other than it had to be local.  Dad suggested DC, but I was lukewarm to the idea.  The thought of taking pics in a crowd didn’t appeal to me and I was also thinking about my dad’s aversion to jam-packed places.  The last thing I wanted was an aggravated photographer.  😉  However, with no other option, DC became the default location.

Washington, DC – Judiciary Square – A First for Everything

Have you ever had the experience of being behind someone in line whose credit card was declined?  You patiently wait as the person insists there must be some mistake!  Ultimately, the person either buys less with cash or leaves empty handed.  Either outcome makes for a very awkward situation.    (more…)

wed-1-img_3021-finalDue to the rain, we remained local for this photo shoot.  Dad and I drove to the Thomas Stone House in Port Tobacco, MD.  If you’re not familiar with the name, you’re not alone.  When I first moved to Southern Maryland, I had no idea who Thomas Stone was either.  However, I quickly learned that Thomas Stone was one of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence.  That is quite an accomplishment for a humble planter and lawyer.

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week!  I’ve been in a festive mood since the beginning of November.  I was at the mall and Hallmark was having a special on Christmas cards.  I could not help myself, I purchased two boxes of cards knowing I would probably only need one. (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – 2016 Top 5 Fall Favorites

cover-shot-1The arrival of Fall, my favorite time of year, softens the blow of Summer’s adieu.  For me, routine replaces spontaneity and the countdown to Christmas begins!  🙂  Fall foliage captivates as I enjoy nature’s wandering work of art dancing all around me in vivid hues of yellow, orange, and red.  Fall’s ephemeral beauty decorates the landscape in a kaleidoscope of leaves while the aroma of firewood fills the crisp evening air, awakening the senses.              (more…)

Now that I have a deep appreciation for history, I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by it.  Historic St. Mary’s City in St. Mary’s County, Maryland was the site for this latest photo shoot.  (more…)

My Forever BFF, Tammy, can be quite humorous.  From the moment I picked her up at the airport, we were in stitches.  She was telling me about her flight and her long delay at the Houston, TX airport.  There, she was speaking with an individual to pass time.  This guy asked her where she was headed and she said with cautious confidence, “Charlotte, South Carolina!”  However, from the look on the man’s face, she knew she said something incorrect.  So, she reacted with, “I think.”  The guy snickered and Tammy added, “North Carolina?  South Carolina?  I don’t know!  I just know it’s one of the Carolinas!” 🙂 (more…)
