I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.
When you have a rare summer Saturday that’s absolutely free, what do you do? Pick berries of course. My husband and I visited The Market at Grelen to pick blueberries and black raspberries early last month. The market is set on a 600-acre nursery in Somerset and is absolutely gorgeous. Despite the heat, we had a wonderful time picking the berries, which I later turned into muffins and ice cream. I hope to go back soon to pick peaches and being that Grelen is less than 10 minutes from our home, that shouldn’t be too hard.
