If you've lived in the Hampton Roads area for more than a minute and have a child, chances are good that you know of and adore our local treasure, The Virginia Living Museum. I have three children and I've lived in the area off and on for 15 years, so I've visited the VLM enough times to have fallen in love and become a devoted fan. When they were younger, my children and I spent many a cold Winter afternoon or blazing hot Summer day enjoying educational and fun-filled activities while exploring the indoor parts of museum; many Spring and Fall days were spent running around the outdoor areas meeting resident critters, and learning about their natural habitats. So when a wonderful local photographer asked if I was interested in a job photographing the VLM's Otter Ball this year, I immediately said yes. After hearing that the event featured an "aerial otter," it was an even more enthusiastic yes! Who could say no to supporting an incredible museum and its noble mission to protect and preserve our environment and the plants and animals who call it home?! It was a delight to cover this fun evening and meet many of the amazing people who work at the VLM or are supporters of the museum and help to make it such a special place.
Attendees, you may download, share and enjoy these images using the link below or via the album I've created on Facebook for them. I would be so grateful if you could remember to give credit to my business if you decide to share any images on your own social media.
