{personal} the state fair experience

Confession time: I have NEVER been to the Virginia State Fair. In the years since Daniel and I have moved to Richmond, we've just never been able to make it. But not this year, my friends!

Here's a photo-montage of our family outing:

This makes my heart melt every time. I think my baby girl needs this on a canvas in her room to remind her always what a great daddy she has!

I think it's "Fair" to say we all left with a bit of magic in our hearts! I can't wait to see their looks of awe again next year :)

Do you go to the state fair? What is your favorite part?? 


Notice something different about my photography style lately? I've been sort of obsessed with my new Lensbaby selective-focus lens. I've combined them here with Pretty Presets I gifted myself (I did miss my business-a-versary, after all!) to give these memories an extra dose of "magic". I'm working up a full Lensbaby post for those of you who are interested in learning more about it, and the kinds of images they produce.
