Back in October, I wrote about  my teen daughter's experience with her Senior High School pictures photography  and portraits- by the Best professional Photographer in Hampton Roads - Virginia, Leila Wylie.   A few weeks later we received the proof of the session.  They are wonderful and I wanted to share them with everyone who might be considering taking their kids senior pictures or any other family photos. Leila Wylie also does a variety of unique, family, children and boudoir sessions amongst other.  Please check her website, and if you book an appointment let her know you heard it here.  Enjoy the video and see the quality of work that Leila does.  My daughter is shy and I used to think not always photogenic.  I think she will always cherish that afternoon and the rewards of a life...

Senior High School pictures photography  and portraits- by the Best professional Photographer in Hampton Roads - Virginia  My daughter is 17 and in her last year of high school..  During the summer we did the yearbook pictures, but with such limited time that the photographer gets, no wonder,  I was disappointed on the pictures that came out.  She has this fake smile for pictures that I know is not my daughter.  While at the school  they looked ok, but when we received the prints at home we were both very disappointed.   Our friend Leila Wylie photographer in Portsmouth Virginia has been posting these amazing photos of families, kids and babies on her Facebook page.  They are absolutely gorgeous and unique.  They are usually on location or at people's homes.   It occurred to me that she...

Do you have more then one place where your photos live online?  Like Flickr, Facebook or Twitter?  If you have an iPhone or iPod touch, you can send your photos to all of those services at the same time with PhotoScatter. The app allows you to upload photos to as many or as few of the supported sites as you choose, all at the same time.PhotoScatter supports most major photo-hosting services and social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picasa, Shutterfly, and PhotoBucket. The app can upload your photos quickly and easily, regardless of whether you just want to upload your photos to one of those services or all of them.  Admittedly, if you're only uploading a photo to Twitter, for example, you'll just use your favorite Twitter client to do it. But PhotoScatter is particularly...

According to First American CoreLogic the number of borrowers in the Hampton Roads area that are under water is about 1 in 4.  Actually they say 22% but that is pretty close.  If home prices continue the slide of about 5% again this year, another 21,000 or so more borrowers will be underwater.  I don't think our decline will be as bad as many new first time home buyers entered the market and stablized prices a bit.  Its kind of a circle, as home prices fall more borrowers are underwater, the more they are underwater the harder it is to sell the house (short sale), the harder it is to sell the house the easier it is to go into foreclosure, the more foreclosures you have the more house prices decline and you are back to full circle.

This is of interest to all of Hampton Roads.  Recently the Jewish Chapel at the Norfolk Naval Station was rededicated.  This Jewish Chapel is the oldest land based chapel in the Navy and was rededicated to Commodore Uriah P. Levy almost 50 years after it was named for him.  The Commodore had quite a career: he chased pirates, wrote books, spent 16 months in a British prison during the War of 1812 helped to end the harsh punishment of flogging.  Just for that he should have had something named after him.

I read an article recently by John F. Farber that brought up an interesting subject.  Transfer fees in Virginia.  Have you seen them on a settlement statement and should we be worried about them.  Transfer fees are imposed by a developer on a piece of property for up to 99 years and are usually 1% of the gross sales price every time a property transfers ownership.  The developers say they can sell the properties cheaper but I don't see it.  What the developer does is sell the rights to the transfer fees at a substantial discount and walks away with extra cash in the pocket.  Apparently they are legal in Virginia but used sparingly.  Let me know if any of you have seen these type fees and how do you explain them at closing. http://www.hamptonroadsrealestate.ws Come and see ALL the Homes ...
