Hi! Thanks for stopping by the blog. I'm a portrait and lifestyle photographer in the Hampton Roads area of VA. I absolutely love photographing families, couples, children, and newborns. Here you'll find sneak peeks from my latest sessions, images from my own family, and the latest news from the studio! So come on in, grab a cup of joe, and stay for a while... ~ Kassia

Now Serving... Check this!

So, as most of you know, I spent roughly the last four years living on Okinawa. It was an experience that is hard to express in words. Amazing. Enlightening. Hard. Frustrating. Wonderful.

While there, I discovered and befriended some amazing women. Wives, mothers, entrepreneurs, artists, teachers, students... all wrapped up into this "military wife" label (which is such a shame, truly). It was eye-opening. (If you're totally bored to tears, you can re-hash my life on Oki by checking out my old blog here.)

One of these amazing women has started a series of websites that I have been lucky enough to be involved with. These 'Now Serving' sites are amazing! They combine social networking and web forums to bring you ONE place you can go to meet new people AND get awesome information in a way that's easy to understand and navigate. It's brilliant for us military folk that move every few years.

Think of it as social networking for not only your base, but your area. But better. Waaaay better.

Anyway, ALL this blabbering to say, the Now Serving Hampton Roads site is up and going!

If you are HERE. If you are in SOME WAY connected to the military. If you USED to be here. If you are ON YOUR WAY here. PLEASE Check this out.

And by HERE I mean: Hampton, Newport News, Yorktown, Williamsburg, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Poquoson, Virginia Beach (and all surrounding areas)... This is site is for all branches, all ranks, grades, and walks of life.

This is a great resource.

This is for us folks...the families, the moms & dads, the children, the ones that get carted around from city to city, state to state, and country to country. The ones that, whereupon finding out we're moving again, immediately open up the computer and "google" our new area...and then find that there is either absolutely NO useful information or WAY TOO MUCH information about our new home. This makes it easy. User-friendly. Totally do-able.

There is nothing more comforting than a little quality information when conquering the great unknown that is a PCS. And even MORE comforting is finding an online friend who went through JUST the same rigamaroll and is willing to share their experiences. It helps. It does. Trust me.

Come on over, sign up, share your knowledge, get some knowledge! We need you! So go forth and disseminate information... now. do it.

Be good,
~ K

Oh... and if you're connected to (in one way or another) Quantico OR a base on Okinawa, there's sites for you too! Click on the 'Hampton Roads' site and you'll see the banners for the other two active sites on the left.

Go forth and network!!!
