Dance and Model Photography – Virginia Beach Oceanfront

Hurricane Maria was a terrible storm. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands were leveled by it. Fortunately, by the time Maria reached our latitude, she had weakened and stayed offshore. The results for our area were higher than normal tides, rough surf, and blustery winds. Conditions like this are unusual. We decided to take advantage of it to create these amazing images of Jessica. We first did a fashion look. The gown caught the wind making beautiful lines in the fabric. After that, Jessica went to one of her dance costumes, also with a flowing skirt. In this case, we both went into the surf which became a challenge trying not to get knocked over by the powerful undertow. Cameras and salt water don’t mix. We finished with a long flowy length of fabric that mimicked the color of the surf foam and a few photos in the nearby dunes. We both had so much fun on this shoot. I hated to see it end.

Jessica – Model Portfolio Shoot

Jessica and I have been shooting together for many years. She is always ready for a photo shoot, whether it be dance photos or fashion style images. We have been all over eastern Virginia over the years, always looking for interesting locations.

This is our third shoot in Smithfield, obviously a favorite of ours. We also love the shrimp and grits at the nearby Smithfield Inn! We began at the Historic St. Luke’s Church, just south of Smithfield.  Historic St. Luke’s is the oldest surviving church building in Virginia. The 17th-Century structure was originally an Anglican Church.

From there we went to Windsor Castle Park which also has the grape vines for the recently established Smithfield Winery. he park is fast becoming a favorite of locals and visitors to Smithfield. It is definitely a beautiful location for photography.

I always look forward to our shoots together. I only hope I can do justice to her beauty. Jessica makes my job so easy.

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.
