From a Stranger in WAWA

  • Life Lessons

my way home from a wedding in Northern VA when I realized that I had hit the point in my drive where gummy bears were needed. Gummies and a DMD (Diet Mountain Dew)… all of you health nuts out there are probably cringing. I know, it’s so bad but on this particular night I was tired…. really tired. It had been a long week and I had just shot a long wedding. (I will have you know that I have significantly reduced my DMD intake and I’m quite proud of myself!).  So I pulled off the Stafford exit to make a quick stop at WAWA, my all time favorite convenience store, and I parked.

Michael and I have been working on our budget. Don’t you want to come hangout with US?! We’re so much fun to be around… especially during “budget meetings”…. I’m kidding.

I’m horrible at holding onto receipts and every time I type some large quantity of numbers into the calculator I end up hitting ONE wrong number and have to start over!! It’s a painful process but it has to be done.

Richmond Senior Shoot

  • Meet Brendan

Richmond over two years…. which means we’ve known some of our youth group kids for over two years. So normally, I would be able to know exactly what to expect from the ones we know best. Well, that’s not true with Brendan. I honestly had no clue what to expect from him during his senior portraits…. and as you look through his pictures, you’ll know what I mean by that!! Brendan and Michael were close from the very beginning and I can’t believe this young, goofy sophomore kid that we met two years ago has grown up and is heading to college in a year! Time is flying by!!
