This summer has been really good so far – weather-wise it hasn’t been that bad (not like two summers ago), this year’s family trip to VAB was one for the books, and Alex is starting to really have childhood memories. I see him grow everyday and he just never ceases to amaze me. Jof and […]

“I feel so grateful to discover that each new day brings me the opportunity to watch the sunrise and fall in love with you again.” Jof has posted some similar photos in his blog but he had different favorites. These are mine. We rarely get to have ‘couple photos’ so I wasn’t going to pass […]

So about me. My name is Riza and I have been married to my best friend and the love of my life, Jof, for five lovely years. We are parents to our mini Jof who goes by Alex – we are so in love with him! We live in Northern Virginia where it’s close to the beautiful countryside and only a short drive to Washington D.C. We love little outdoor adventures in the country and we love to picnic! Since my husband does photography, taking photos is a basic part of our routine. We love photos! And now that Jof and I do not have Facebook (he only kept his business account), I am starting this blog so I can share more of our favorite photos to our family and friends around. Although I know I can go crazy and post about all the hundreds of photos we have, I’ll try not to go there. And this being my first ever ‘public’ account of anything, I am hopeful I do not get people trying to copy my family photos for any reason without my consent. Love!
