I don't know about you .... but I am soo excited because it's snowing outside right now! As I may have mentioned before .. for the past 3 1/2 years I have lived in Elizabeth City it has never snowed in November! We usually only get one snow fall a year and that is in January ... during the middle of the night .. when no one gets to see it. But this morning Josh, my husband, left early for work .. then came back in to wake me up because of the snow. I'm soo happy!! As it definitely makes me feel the holiday spirit in the air!!!! =0)

Here are some pictures from this morning of my dogs (Paige & Surka) and me ....

If you would like to get any holiday pictures for yourself or your Christmas cards ... please let me know as soon as you can!! Thanks!

Have a great day!! I'm gonna go back to playing in the snow!! =0)

Take care, Jess

Featured in Southern Living magazine!!

I heard some great news this morning ... that my photo that I took of the Chocolate House's Elizabeth City Candy Bars is going to be featured now in Southern Living magazine in a special North Carolina section of its January issue!!!! I know I wont be credited for the shot as it was through my other job at Elizabeth City Area CVB, but I'm excited none-the-less! When I have a copy of the article I'll show it to you.

Have a great day!! What a great way to kick off the New Year!

Take care, Jess

The holidays are coming...

Hello all ...

If you live in Elizabeth City then you might have seen the light flurries we had today! Which is unusual for this area, as for the past 3 years I have lived here we usually only get snow on one day a year (which is usually some time in January). So, I thought that was great!! =0) Especially from being from Maine ... I do miss the snow around the holidays so I'm glad to have the cold weather back down here.

Also ... I have now redecorated my blog with a holiday theme ... so if you are subscribed to my feed and haven't checked it out in a while then please do.

Anyway ... if you are looking for some holiday outdoor portraits (unless you have an indoor location you want to be taking at) please let me know as I am willing to take some for you. If you live in Elizabeth City (or about a 15/20 minute drive away from EC) the photo shoot fee will be waived, but if you live in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia or in Northeast North Carolina and are interested in a photo shoot then prices are negotiable.

If you have any questions please let me know how I can help you by leaving a comment.

Have a great day!!

Take care, Jess

Elizabeth City Wharf with a Mistress

For those who aren't familiar with Elizabeth City. Then I'll start by saying that in the downtown district is a Mariners Wharf, basically a park to the rest of the town, but to boaters it is a nice place to stay free for 48 hours on there way to their next adventure. And around this time in October every year we start seeing the docks slips becoming full of boaters heading south for the winter. It is really a sight to witness, as you can see in the photo below.

Two days ago boaters Skip & Kathleen pulled into the Elizabeth City slips on their 1930's Schooner called the Mistress. It is a gorgeous boat inside and out, I had to take some pictures of it.

Here is a shot of the inside of the boat:

On Wednesday, October 23rd Skip & Kathleen dressed up their boat with it's flags. To their request they asked if they could borrow an Elizabeth City flag to put onto their boat, which I was able to get for them.

If you would like to learn more about Schooner MISTRESS and see the work Skip did to rebuild her, please visit their website at Or to see more of my photography of the Mistress please click here. And to end our look at the Mistress here is a photo of Skip & Kathleen...

Dismal Swamp State Park

I was asked to make another version of a video I made in March 2008 since the people from the Dismal Swamp State Park wanted their updated info on it. So, here is the newer version with some upgrades ....

Dismal Swamp State Park from From Me to You ... Videos on Vimeo.

From Me to You ... Video, Photography, & Book Reviews created this video of South Mills, NC's Dismal Swamp Visitors Center in 2008.

About the Dismal Swamp Visitors Center: Dismal Swamp State Park allows a unique wilderness experience in a landscape that has been witness to American Indian hunting parties, exploration by George Washington and the story of the Underground Railroad. The park features 20 miles of trails, beyond a 2,000-foot boardwalk that puts visitors in the midst of the Great Dismal Swamp. Birding and viewing abundant wildlife are favored activities. Mountain biking on the trails and kayaking the adjacent Dismal Swamp Canal are both encouraged. Visitors may bring their own equipment or rent at the park. Regular interpretive programs about the wetlands ecology and history of the famed swamp complement museum-quality exhibits in the visitor center.

Rose Bud's are here to stay!

Today I helped out my other job (at the Elizabeth City Area CVB) by creating a logo for them! About 3 months ago I did up a video of Elizabeth City's Rose Buddies. For that video I created my own logo for them since as far as I knew at that time they didn't have one of their own. So, yesterday when my boss (the director of tourism) talked about having a logo for the Rose Buddies ... I told him about mine. And after some editing today ... I have now created their official logo!! I'm so happy with myself!

To find out more about the Rose Buddies please check out Also .. click here to check out the Rose Buddies video I created!
