The Nichols {Family Session} | Culpeper Photographer

Saturday evening I met Katie, KC & their pride and joy, Jack who just turned 1 in August.  They were awesommmmme!!!!!  I’m pretty sure Katie could read my mind, she also loves photography and completely understood my visions which sometimes come in the form of me looking completely distracted for a second followed by a “Oh! Oh! I got an idea!”. Ha Ha!!!:)I had a great time with the 3 of them and can’t wait until they see the rest of their photos. For now here are some of my favorites!

Correction… Lisa is AWESOME! hehe These are FANTASTIC, Lisa! We really enjoyed ourselves! You made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and you can tell!! I cannot wait to see the rest of these photos! There are sooo many great photos! :)

All Things About Me

So, you want to know more about me? You’ve probably lost quite a bit of sleep over it. Huh? hahaha NOT! Well, today is your lucky day cause guess what? I’ve put together a list of “All Things About Me”!  Everything you’ve ever wanted to know and even some things you didn’t want to know. And guess what else, it’s the good stuff, not the boring stuff like:
“How long have you been shooting photography?”
“Where did you go to school?”
“What’s your Social Security Number?”
OK, now you’ve crossed the line….LOL  Seriously though, here is a rather not-so-serious list of “All Things About Me”. Feel free to ask questions, leave comments, tell me I’m a couple french fries short of a happy mean, whatever.

lisa burgess photography, about me

Finally you will get some sleep at night.
Lisa Burgess – Peace!
P.S. – My dream car….A 1969 Chevy Camaro SS….

Lisa I LOVE your about me section… First of all, I thought I was the only one who ate Doritos on my pb&j!!!! That rocks, lol. Also, I was wondering if you mind me using your idea to make my own blog post, I’d really like to do something similar. Have a blessed day!

Stacy Workman - September 9, 2010 - 12:45 pm

Now I have to try the doritos and pbj thing. Doritos are my favorite food.

Crystal - September 9, 2010 - 12:25 pm

Sharpie’s are awesome! Have never tried Doritos on my PBJ, don’t think I want to either! You and the clouds…… love it too!

Oh, Yes Lord Vader is on The Twitter. One of his latest tweets “I keep hearing bugles coming from my lackey’s iPhones. Don’t know what’s going on, but I may have to Force choke someone.” LOL

Lisa Burgess - September 9, 2010 - 11:38 am

I wish I knew your Dad when you were a baby! I so would have asked for a ride in his Camaro. But I would have been a baby too so maybe I wouldn’t have asked. LOL Red with black stripes, sounds beautiful! Love that you called me a Goober! Seriously! Just don’t ever call me a “normal person”! Don’t think I’d take that well. :D

Heather O'Grady - September 9, 2010 - 11:27 am

I love it that you follow Darth Vader on twitter! I didn’t even know that existed.

Cheryl - September 9, 2010 - 11:20 am

My favorite car is a 69 Camero Z28!!! My dad had one when I was a baby, red with black racing stripes. And thanks for all the info about you, I think I already knew most of it … maybe?? Goober!

i heart faces {beach fun} photo challenge

Always love these challenges, especially when the subject is one of my favorite things. Beach Fun! I took this photo of my daughter while in Hilton Head, S.C. She is always on the go. Always bouncing, hopping, skipping, jumping and never, ever, ever stops talking. Seriously, I don’t know where she gets her energy. OK, maybe it’s from her 90% sugar diet she is always trying to sneak out of the pantry….LOL Anway, I really like this photo cause it captures her in a quiet moment looking for starfish and sand dollars at the beach. Definitely a Beach Fun moment for me! Woot Woot! Oh, and I have to give a shout out to Laura T at Pretty Presets for her gorgeous Lightroom presets. I used Pretty Presets Brown for this photo.

The Martins {Family Session} | Culpeper Photographer

A couple weeks ago I met the Martin’s for a photo shoot. First let me say that I was extremely happy that it was not 110 degrees outside. That was the temp for our previous appointment so we decided to hold off a week. And I’m happy to say, it was only in the low 90′s!  Did I just say that? Yes, Yes I did!  Anyway, our main goal? Birthday Pictures! For who (er…whom)? Well, Andrew, he just turned 2 and big brother and sister, twins, Lucy & Nathan had recently turned 10. They were all super excited and ready to go when I got there! I LOVE IT!  Take a look at our awesome evening and feel free to leave me a comment! I always LOVE reading them….Thank You Cheryl for choosing me to shoot your kiddo’s Birthday pics, see ya soon chica!
