Tasha – Model Session | Hampton Roads, VA

December 10, 2009 7 comments

Latasha called me last month and wanted a portfolio for modeling and possibly some cover images for a CD she is making. I have listened to a few of her songs and not only can this girl sing beautifully she also writes her own songs, simply amazing   We have one more session hopefully this coming week weather permitting and then a ton of editing.

I didn’t really pick up it at first but she really reminds me of  Beyonce, she has similar looks in some of the photographs too.  This girl has amazing talent and I hope she reaches all her dreams.  Enjoy.

Charity Events – Hampton Roads, Virginia

December 5, 2009 1 comment

Michele, Sid  and I are participating in three amazing charity events this Christmas season that we hope will bless many families and loved ones.  I want to mention all three and encourage you to give to any or all that touch your heart.  They are in no particular order because each really stand alone and each deserve special recognition.

Snowball Express is the charity for the children of our fallen military heroes. They started in 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of our fallen military heroes who died while on active duty since September 11, 2001.

We will be sending off the families from Norfolk International Airport 12/09/09 to Dallas Texas this year for a 4 day VIP event that will hopefully uplift the hearts of these little ones with the loss of their mothers or fathers who have died in war.  I can tell ya I am tearing up writing this post, we are so honored to have a small part in this charity.  Please visit the website and give if you can:

Help-Portrait is a movement of photographers who are using their time, equipment and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate this holiday season.  There are currently over 631 locations worldwide offering free photography to families and individuals.  Locally there are two sites offering photography services this coming Saturday 12/12/09 at the YMCA on Colley Avenue in Norfolk and at the Oak Grove United Methodist Church at 472 N. Battlefield at Kempsville and Great Bridge Blvd.

I believe the times are 10-4.  I will be helping out at the Chesapeake location.  Here is the link to the website that explains the charity with some really good videos to watch:

Wreaths Across America, WAA reached out to thousands of children with the message of Remember, Honor and Teach.  The importance of honoring each fallen serviceman as an individual is stressed.  My fellow brother and sisters with the Patriot Guard Riders and the help of hundreds of  Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Veterans and local citizens will be laying wreaths at the Albert G. Horton Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk also this coming Saturday 12/12/2009.  Michele and Sid will be out there at noon helping.  Here is a link to this charity, please sponsor a wreath at the website:

Shannon and Josh Family Portraits – Virginia Beach, VA

November 22, 2009 2 comments

Shooting this late in the season is really about timing and hoping for good weather.  Here is a sneak peak for Shannon and Josh a young married couple that wanted some fun and romantic images.  They have a couple of energetic family pet’s Hunter and Scotty that they wanted in some of the pictures too.  It was a challenge to capture the pup’s but we were able to get some really good ones.  We are going to be doing alot more family sessions with their pet’s since these are just a lot of fun.

The last colors of Fall are just fantastic this year and really make the images pop.  Had a blast spending the afternoon with you both,  hope you guy’s enjoy your images.

Hampton Roads Children Photography – Jaylin

October 26, 2009 2 comments

We recently had a “Tween Session” with Jaylin.  She is totally cute and really into dance, fashion  and starting in children modeling with www.eviemansfield.com.  This is a great age to take pictures since most parents take pictures when they are little and skip right over the tween years to high school.

We are now booking “Tween Sessions” for the ages 8-12 and basically it’s a senior session with outfit changes and and our signature style.  Have a boy or girl who is into band, sport’s, whatever, give us a call to create something to really remember them at this age.

Sometimes I get a call for a session that just know is gonna be fun.  Ali said that she and her sister wanted some portraits together and they were bringing their  boyfriends too.  I suggested we have the session at the Riverwalk Landing Park in Yorktown which I have been wanting to shoot at.

We dodged rain and had some issues with gusting wind but I think everyone had a great time and we were able to grab some nice images too. The sisters are just gorgeous and so much fun to photograph. Thank you all for a great day, It’s the reason I love my job so much.

Virginia Beach Engagement Photography | Danielle and Damon

October 7, 2009 4 comments

Michele and I met with Danielle and Damon last month at Town Center www.vabeachtowncenter.com to take their engagement photo’s.  Danielle had seen our work and wanted some fashion/couture  inspired  images for their session.  I love it when a couple show a  real interest in having fun and exciting images taken.  During the session they wanted to relax a little bit, so we took a small break and had some wine at www.sonomatowncenter.com.

The wedding is planned for next May and they selected the www.princessannecc.com for the wedding and reception. The PACC  is a beautiful venue for weddings, add a stunning bride and groom so you know  the images are gonna ROCK.

Here is a link to view a video I created from the session:  http://www.vimeo.com/6756615.
