I've been back in America for a little over a month already! How time goes by so fast is completely beyond me. I've already spent time in Wilmington, NC; Richmond, VA; and
Washington, DC. A vast majority of the time has been spent loving on my nieces and nephews, of course, but I can't go more than a few days without picking up my camera. The first batch of photos below are from the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher on Pleasure Island. It's one of my favorite places on Earth. Not many people know it, but I seriously considered a career in marine biology in high school before I went in the direction of photography. So any time I can visit an aquarium or coastal area with my cameras, you know I'm one happy lady.
After recharging and having time with my family and friends, I headed up to Richmond, VA for a few days. The more I see that vibrant city, the more I love it! So eclectic and funky and historic and colorful. I had a great family photoshoot at a pedestrian bridge with stunning views. Check out a few of those photos below!
And now I am back in Washington, DC, one of my main home-bases in the whole world. I will be spending the majority of the summer months here, and I am so excited! I want to photograph old clients and hopefully work with a TON of new ones. There's just so much to see and do here! My most recent photoshoot from a couple of days ago was at a gorgeous Franciscan Monastery in the northeast quadrant of the city (photos below). It still amazes me that after living here on and off for well over a decade that there are so many new places to discover.
It'll be a fantastic summer, and I can't wait to photograph as many memories as possible... And unabashedly fawn over my nieces and nephews as the crazy aunt I am.
