I can't believe it's here - my very last submission for my 2013 Project 52. Though I was late at times, like this week, I didn't miss any and I consider that a serious accomplishment. I should probably share some mind blowingly amazing image from the holidays, but instead I'm going to share one I took with my iPhone. Why? Because I gave my Mark off on Christmas so I could truly be a part of the day; but also, this is one of my favorite photos from 2013. It's my 3 year old daughter with her great-grandmother. Not many people are fortunate enough to be able to have the relationship they do, and it's something worth sharing.

On Wednesday night we made our annual trek into Washington, DC to visit the National Zoo for Zoo Lights. This is one of my favorite parts about living here and we look forward to it every year. The carousel runs until 8pm, they have a train decorated with lights that takes you around the zoo, and a huge slide you tube down. The indoor exhibits are all open (tho not decorated) and the petting zoo animals are out. Everything dangerous is locked away ;) I grabbed my Rebel but didn't take many pictures - I was wearing our 6 month old in the Ergo and it was cold! I wanted to share a few for our "festive" theme this week.

Here in Leesburg, Va, we just got pounded with 4 inches of snow followed by freezing rain. The rumor is we're supposed to get another 5-6 inches of snow tomorrow, so I'm hoping I'll be able to practice shooting snowflakes. In the meantime, I couldn't resist sharing a look at my backyard thru my macro with you!

[session preview] catching up: engagements, anniversaries, families, and headshots | northern virginia photographer
WOW I am behind on blogging. I had so many sessions over the last month that I only just made my turn-around time. So this is going to be a catch-up post on what I've been up to with my favorites and then links to the full preview on FaceBook. I know this is the lazy way out but I think it's better than bombarding you with individual posts of them all at once!

Our challenge this week was "dreams." My daughter has been really into Panda Bear Panda Bear lately - she also caught a nasty cold just before Thanksgiving. So in between cuddles and blowing her nose, we're reading this book. A lot. She can actually read it to me now, by memory of course but not bad for a 3 year old.
