Norfolk VA Senior Photos - Currituck County High School Senior Portraits

It's been quite awhile since we've shared a video here on our site, so I thought this might be a good time to do so. I absolutely adored Sara's gallery.  We scheduled sessions for downtown Norfolk, including Starbucks (this was my first request for a session at Starbucks!), the Outer Banks, and of course the studio.  Sara had such variety in her imagery, from nighttime in the urban city to a soft, flowing tulle skirt on the beach!  I had difficulty culling her images because of this variety, and while the gallery we presented was quite large, Sara and her mom, Sally, did a fantastic job with selecting their images...and we had a great time doing it!  :)I loved every moment working with this sweet girl and her mom!  We began their selection and ordering appointment with the following video. Be sure to view in HD!  Please note most images have NOT been retouched.  (We of course retouch all images purchased.)  ;) I met Sara when I spoke with the yearbook staff at Currituck County High School in the spring of 2018.  Sara was a junior at the time, and this year she is serving as the head editor of the yearbook.  I'm so excited for her and love hearing her talk with such passion about the yearbook!  I can't wait to see it!  She will be studying communications following graduation, and I know she has a bright ...

Norfolk VA Senior Photos - Currituck County High School Senior Portraits

Choosing a senior photographer can be difficult.  I get it, really I do!  We have some fabulous photographers in our area.  So when I heard from Gregory's mom, I was super excited.  I loved working with this sweet family a couple years ago for family portraits.  This afternoon Gregory's sister is coming in for a back to school limited edition portrait session, and I've seen this guy a couple times for his senior portraits with at least one more to go. I realized I hadn't yet shared a sneak peek of Gregory.  I don't often do sneak peeks.  I prefer the client be the first to see their images!  However, I can share studio images as our clients see these images as they're created.  So here you go....one of our favorites from Gregory's studio session.  I absolutely adore this image and this guy! I share often my love for a black on black portrait.  It's not easy to create, but Gregory nailed it here!  I'm so grateful Gregory and his mom, Theresa, chose us for his senior portraits, and I can't wait to share them all.  :)

Norfolk VA Senior Photos - Currituck County High School Senior Portraits

Sarah is our first senior from Western Branch High School in Chesapeake.  You may remember we did Sarah's prom pictures earlier this year.  You can find them here.  I was super excited to hear from Sarah's mom, Stephanie, when she initially called to inquire about prom photos.  I know Stephanie and, Sarah's dad, Keith, from many years ago, when the two of them first met.  Keith was my boss in I first began in commercial banking.  I love when friends from the past inquire about portraits!  I not only get to photograph them but also the chance to become reacquainted.  It's so much fun! Sarah and Stephanie came to the studio this afternoon to hang out for a bit.  Oh you know, just for five hours.  I seriously love working in the studio where we don't have to worry about clouds, rain, and nasty humidity.  I cranked the a/c earlier this morning so it was the perfect environment!  :)  I think Sarah and Stephanie had a great time as well.  At least I hope so, especially considering how long I kept them!  Sarah was a trooper, and I could tell when she was reaching her limit for the day.  I mean, five hours is quite a bit of modeling.  And it's tough being a model...even when you're as stunning as Sarah.Stephanie and Sarah were able to choose their favorites as we were shooting.  We all ...

Virginia Beach, specifically the Great Neck area - I've been to the area twice in the last month to photograph clients. This morning I made the trek to photograph this beautiful family!  Unfortunately, we were missing some family members (from out of town and ill), but we continued without them.  It was hot!  The littles, all boys, were not exactly excited about family portraits, and neither were their dads.  So no, we did not have the best of conditions.  Sound like your fears when you consider doing family portraits? They planned to do the portraits in grandma's backyard.  Working as quickly as I could, we decided on the front yard once I arrived.  While everyone was indeed hot, they didn't melt.  I baked in the sun, however, and felt as though I was melting.  :D  And drank lots of water!  The boys lived.  The moms (and dads) made it through.  And they now have lovely family portraits! And seriously, just look at the matriarch of this beautiful family! I've been photographing these sweet kids since they were little.  I can't get over how grown they are!  Here are a few from the very first time they were in front of my camera almost 8 years ago at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. And some from the rest of the family over the years.  (Please don't judge - I obviously had some ...

A few weeks ago I received a text.  Stephanie didn't think I would be available to photograph Sarah the night of the Western Branch High School prom, but wanted to check anyway, just in case.  I'm so happy I was available!  It had been some time since I'd done prom photos (it seems I'm not available when the time rolls around), so I had some ideas of things I wanted to try.  Stephanie explained Sarah wanted to have the images done at her grandparents' home in Virginia Beach, not Chesapeake, since it is special to her.  Of course that means the world to me!  When you want images created at a place special in your heart, it's that much more special to me.  ;)Stephanie's parents' home is quite literally a photographer's playground!  I cannot wait to return for Sarah's senior portraits!  For now, here are some of the images we created before the Western Branch High School prom.Sarah and Josh were AMAZING!  I won't share how long they let me play.  LOL Much thanks to Stephanie's parents for their gracious hosting and allowing me to romp through their home and property!  I hope Sarah and Josh had a super fun evening!
