Head Shots – Masterworks Touring Company

Hampton Roads Photography has had a long relationship with the Masterworks Touring Company. With excellence and integrity, their vision is to use God-given creativity to give Him glory and bring restoration and redemption to the arts, cultures and people groups around the world. Each year we create new head shots and group photos as they prepare for the new season of performances. This year the Touring Company is made up of six dancers, Jessica Hartsfield, Emileigh Earlenbaugh, Krystal Descano, Olivia Shedd, Elise Hughes and Quinn Ricks.

In the upcoming season, they will be performing at the CBN Rosh Hashanah event in September, Pembroke Mall, MacArthur Mall and Cedar Manor in December, The Wave Church Women’s Conference in February, The Stockley Gardens Art Festival in May and the Miss Virginia Pageant in June. Other events will most likely be added. In April, they are looking at another missions trip. This year the Touring Company went to Amsterdam to dance in the red light districts, sharing their message.

After we finished with the head shots, we spent some time creating silhouette images of the dancers. Some will be used in promoting their new season and can’t be published yet. These, however, can be shown. We all had a lot of fun creating these images.

James – Virginia Beach Senior Portraits

James has been playing baseball since he was around 7 years old. He currently plays left field for Salem High School in Virginia Beach. He and his mother found some images that they liked, hoping for similar photos of James. We love getting suggestions like that. It lets us know the customer’s thinking and preferences for their portraits.

James and I had a great time during this shoot, talking sports (mostly baseball) and his future plans. He is a New York Yankees fan. He hasn’t decided on a college yet, but I’m sure he will be on their baseball team. The water images made a bit of a mess. However, we were both thrilled with the results. Good luck James!

Lindsey – Model Portfolio Photography

Any portrait shoot, especially one for a model’s portfolio, is a collaboration between the subject and the photographer. In larger shoots, others may contribute as well such as a hair and makeup artist, stylist, agent, or art director. In this case, Lindsey had an idea of the type of images she wanted. She created a Pinterest mood board so that she could share images similar to the style she was looking for. We agreed on two separate sessions. The first would be in our studio. These images would be dark and moody, including some props like a black fedora and a Japanese sword. Lindsey has a black belt in Karate, receiving the sword with her black belt.

Dance Recital Photography

Bright lights, sparkling costumes, and the smell of hairspray in the air. Dancers anxious to perform help each other to relax and stretch backstage while they wait for their time to shine. When that time finally does come, they make their family, friends, and teachers proud. Capturing these moments with professional photography will give you keepsakes for years to come. Hampton Roads Photography has been photographing dancers and dance schools for over 25 years.

Hampton Roads Photography has been photographing dancers and dance schools for over 25 years. We will come to your school prior to your recital to get the beautifully posed and lit images that will make you proud.

Stephanie – Virginia Beach Model Photography

While many strive to become triple threats, Stephanie Semiday is a quadruple threat with ease. She is persuasive as a camera and theater actor, sways audiences with beautiful ballads and commands the stage as a powerful dancer. Yet, even with all this in her entertainment repertoire, she still manages to peer into the lens of a camera and give a photographer exactly what they need to capture a superb picture. With her family’s recent move to Washington state, she decided to open herself up to the possibility of more modeling work, including swimsuit modeling. We shot pictures on-site at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Stephanie is a joy to work with and we hope to see her succeed in all areas in Washington state.

Kelsey and Christian – Shenandoah Wedding Photography

We have been looking forward to this wedding ever since we learned of Kelsey’s engagement to Christian. Originally, the wedding was going to be later in the year, but Christian received orders to move to Washington DC where he will become part of the U S Coast Guard Honor Guard. He said he wasn’t going to move without Kelsey, so an earlier wedding was planned. They chose The Pavilion at Shenandoah Woods. This location is only 4 years old, but has quickly become one of Virginia’s premier wedding locations. Weather was perfect for this late June wedding. The couple kept this event more intimate but are planning a much bigger reception later in the year.

Congratulations to Kelsey and Christian and thank you for having us as your wedding photographers.

Emily is a beautiful and talented senior in Chesapeake, planning on entering Tidewater Community College in the fall. Eventually she plans on transferring to William and Mary in a couple of years. Emily has danced at Academie de Ballet for all but one year of her dance training.

Dance, especially that of ballet, is a passion of hers and she delights in sharing the art form. She hopes that through the joy of ballet she can communicate the joy of the Lord to both students and audiences alike.

Down on the Farm

Stephanie and Jessica are both models and dancers who I frequently work with. They are both members of the Masterworks Touring Company in Chesapeake. This was a self assignment. an idea from Stephanie and her husband A.J. We were able to shoot at the Rohrer family farm. The Rohrers own Chariots for Hire, a horse and carriage service for weddings and other events. They let us use one of their horses, Fancy, for the shoot. Fancy is a beautiful horse. She was very cooperative throughout the session. We were all pleased with the images. I’m sure we will be working together again soon.
