Charlottesville Lifestyle : Victoria & Vasily

There are two kinds of people in this world.  The ones that entertain… And the ones that observe.  I’m sort of both of those smashed together in a warm and gooey kind of way.  I use my lens to look beyond what the human eye sees and capture the moments in between, observing the unseen.  I use my charm and the amazing sense of humor that was given to me from the big guy upstairs to get them to relax and be themselves…  I entertain as well as observe.  Don’t ask how I multi-task, I wouldn’t be able to explain it even if I knew myself.  I just know that I absolutely LOVE this job!

Victoria and Vasily have been in our lives for a little over two years.  We started this friendship when they chose to sit with us at a mutual friend’s wedding.  Observing those two was quite the entertainment at that wedding.  I instantly knew they had the sort of chemistry that many couple lack.  They were so laid back and comfortable with who they were, I wanted to know more about them and use my extreme observing talent to make them more familiar to me in my life.  Good thing I have, because after two years of (how should I put this) “hanging out” (I really need to broaden my vocabulary)  we have gotten closer then ever, and I’m extremely thankful to God for sending us these two crazy kids in our lives and have the honor to call them…  Friends.

These next two were in my top FAVORITES!

While I was taking these two…

V was taking this masterpiece which ended up being my favorite image from his cards.

Another of my absolute favorites from this shoot…

When I was finished shooting the above image, V captured them trying to sneak in a kiss…  Told you they had crazy chemistry ;)

And I will finish with this last image that completes my top favorites list.

Please do enjoy this slideshow.

Happy Happy Friday!  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Monday Madness + Building with thoughts

I’ve been feeling so SO productive lately.  Maybe all the running around from store to store and drawing out my plans for the house have been exciting me a bit too much.  I hope it turns out amazing and while I sit here typing this up, I can’t help but plan and sketch out my ideas.  So if you could excuse me, I’ve got things to build…  In my mind ;)

Some that make those Monday’s a tad. bit. better! :)

Happy Happy Monday!
