The Malecky’s were SO very sweet to invite me and Ryan to their rivah house this past weekend. You may recognize this sweet family from their Fall Maymont family session last year. Kendall’s parents, Tom and Peggy, have a house right on the Potomac river and the views are absolutely breathtaking. It’s a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Richmond to this getaway destination. There is something so very relaxing about staying at a quaint river house. Sitting on their dock with the wind in my hair overlooking an incredible sunset that first evening soothed my soul! Between the delicious food, golf cart rides, yard games, fishing, golf, great music, and sun bathing — there was never a dull moment and yet relaxing the entire time! The Mackey’s kids, Colin and Owen, are too cute!! They are so well behaved and they were full of smiles the entire weekend.
It was rather cloudy last week and I was worried about us not having good weather throughout the weekend — we could’ve picked a better weekend! Since it was the weekend after Memorial Day it was as if we had the whole river to ourselves. No traffic getting to or from and we had perfect weather the whole time. This was the first time I had been out in the sun this much all year so naturally I left with a pretty awful sunburn! Nothing a little aloe lotion (and lots of shade on Sunday!) can’t fix!! We had such a great time and hope to have the pleasure of visiting again!! THANK YOU again to the Martins and the Maleckys for their lovely hospitality 🙂
My NEW D610 arrived the day before we left for our vacation so of course I had to charge this baby up, pack all my favorite lenses, and get to snapping away!! I’m in LOVE with having a full-frame lens!!!
Yard Jenga!! SO fun!
Kendall’s Aunt’s dog — Scarlet. SO cute!
