These were just a few fun shots we took on our last day in Virginia. We woke early to catch the sunrise over Buckroe Beach. I used to run to this beach from my childhood home in Hampton. I love the sound of the waves rolling in and the smell of the beach. I love the birds and the shells and the way the sky meets the water. It was such a neat thing to be able to stay at this particular beach and have my children experience nature in a way that I did as a kid. It was cold but none of us minded. They danced at the water's edge and sang little ditties as a new day dawned before our eyes.
My brother and sister in law live on the east coast and we took a little time to work together during my visit last fall. They are a gorgeous couple who make my job super fun and super easy. Just look at them! My brother is currently in Afghanistan and looking through this shoot makes me a little weepy but certainly proud. He is a young man full of character, strength and wisdom. His wife is not only beautiful but her spirit is generous and loving. I am so proud to be related to them.
