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 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

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!

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
