I visited Valley Forge National Historical Park a few weeks ago on a scouting mission for a project. I went during “golden hour” and the place was list up beautifully. There’s really no better time for lovely, sun-drenched pictures than the hour or so before sunset. I try to schedule all of my shoots around this time so that I can get this gorgeous look. Photographers refer to this as “golden hour” or “magic hour”. It’s easy to see why.

A kind of golden hour one remembers for a life time… Everything was touched with magic.

December Cancun vacation
Ack! It's about freaking time I posted something about my own holidays! Better late than never, right?Holiday Season 2007 felt like constant travel. I can't complain because I saw some great things and reconnected with some great people, but it is sooo tiring to live out of a suitcase for weeks on end.I never did get back to writing about our trip to Cancun in early December. Suffice it to say that it was excellent. I was originally a Spanish major back in college and I was really proud of myself for all of the Spanish I still remembered. Rich and I are total power vacationers – we had plans for every day that we were there so as not to ...
