January Canvas Sale | Get ’em while there hot

January 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Gallery wraps are our absolute favorite way to display an  image,  They look amazing and are never out of style.  Plus, they are always ready to hang!   When clients come into the studio, a canvas gallery wrap is the most frequent ordered item.   They are wrapped around a 1.5″ wooden stretcher frame and make an amazing gift for someone (or yourself).

You can take 25% off any 2009 session  – applies only to sessions that have been completed. Sale ends January 30th, 2010.

To take advantage of this, please contact me with the session you’d like to purchase from, and I’ll re-instate your online gallery to order from. My vendors only have these sales a few times each year and I am passing the savings directly to you.

Sierra and Nick + 3 | Virginia Beach Family Portraits

December 22, 2009 3 comments

I met Sierra, Nick and their three pup’s at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront for a chilly portrait session.  Sierra just returned from a 7 month Med deployment and Nick drove up from North Carolina.  He  got out of the Marine Corp that day for our winter beach session.

I can tell ya, it was cold and windy.  Just on the borderline of insane but we managed to get some good shot’s in anyway.  They are a fun couple in love with  a real passion between them.  What a great way to end the year.  Thanks Sierra and Nick for spending a chilly day with me.

Shannon and Josh Family Portraits – Virginia Beach, VA

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 Family Photography | Ali and Angela

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.

If found this a few days ago and wanted to share it with you. Good explanation about custom photography and the costs associated with it. If you have a few moments it’s a good read.

Casting Call for Newborns, Tweens & Pets

July 27, 2009 2 comments


Once in a while, I like to expand my creativity and try some new things, and figured before senior season heats up it would be a perfect time to shoot some fun images! So, I’m offering a casting call to models/parents who are open to trying some of my ideas and comfortable with being featured on my web site. Casting Call sessions are done free of charge in exchange for a signed model release.

Each model/parent will receive a complimentary 8×10 print. You are not obligated to purchase any other prints, but if you like, they will be available for purchase at regular print rates.  I only have a few spots available for each session so first come first served. All sessions must be within 20 miles of Olde Towne Portsmouth or a travel charge will apply.

I am looking for newborn models up to three weeks old. Some of the shots may feature your little one in his or her birthday suit but be assured they will all be in good taste just as the other images on my website. These sessions will be done in your home so if you have a “beautiful nursery” that would be a plus. Newborns can take some extra time so allow for 1-3 hours for the session.

I am looking for children ages 8-12 with personality and spunk. Looking to do both urban and natural shoots. Will last 1-2 hours, probably outdoors.

I love animals and am interested in expanding my portfolio with images of animals of all kinds, with or without their owners – birds, dogs, cats, iguanas… you name it. These sessions will likely take place in your home or backyard or at a dog park and will probably not last for longer than an hour.

Happy Anniversary to Michele

June 22, 2009 Leave a comment

June is always a busy month for us with Sid getting put of school, his birthday on the 7th and our anniversary on the 15th.  Michele and I celebrated our 13th anniversary this past week, we have actually been together 17 years.  I always tell people I married up and its true, I am grateful for everything she does.   She is a very tolerant and giving woman to put up with my shenanigans and she is my best friend.  We went to Yorktown Beach this past Saturday, someplace we have never been and had a wonderful day.  It is a beautiful local area I recommend to visit.
