A Snowy Long Weekend
Jan. 23
This is how the cabin looks in winter - beautiful isn't it! What a relaxing time we all had up in North Carolina! Trevor and Jessica's cabin is so warm and welcoming. The hot tub in the below freezing temperatures was a huge plus for me who is not the cold lover at all!!! I had never been to the Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock area of NC and fell in love with how charming and it is. I will share more photos later. My sweet Veronica. On our way up to the cabin we stopped for lunch. AJ was so excited to see the snow he had to put his feet in some. Do you have any fond "snowy" memories or stories? Please share them!! Mine is growing up in Southern Connecticut and getting the one or two "BIG" storms of the winter. Since we lived ... VIEW POST
Off to Cherry Haven!
Jan. 16
Tomorrow we are packing up the warm clothes and heading to the mountains of Banner Elk, NC. We were invited to use a cabin belonging to a fantastic couple I am photographing this summer, Trevor and Jessica. It is going to be so nice to have some family bonding time! I know the kids are hoping for a little snow. Of course it does not look like this right now in the middle of winter but that's what is in my mind. I can't wait to take some photos so be on the watch. Cabin Website: CherryHaven Jessica and Trevor have a great slideshow from our getting to know you session! /Slideshow VIEW POST

If you are looking for a place to go and get away from it all check out their home here: vrbo. These are a few of the photos I shot recently for their updated site! VIEW POST
New Year, New Look and New Contest

No Michael Buble has not taken the place of Johnny Depp! I am much too loyal for that. You can actually hear Johnny sing in Sweeney Todd (if you can stomach the Tim Burton blood.) It was a great movie and he did an amazing job but it is violent. I have always loved Michael Buble that 's why he is on my new site. So here is the contest, please leave me a comment - it is easy! You can say anything... Great site, Happy New Year Lea, you can tell me which gallery his song "Everything" is playing in. I will draw a name at the end of the month for his newest CD! ANYONE can enter so spread the love - Pass my blog on - I would love to know who is out there reading and looking! This is my dad celebrating 2008! Here is my mother with... VIEW POST
