Beauty Retouching – Virginia Beach Head Shot Photography

No matter how beautiful the model and how good the photography, every head shot will need professional retouching to take the image from just good to outstanding. Everyone of your purchased head shot images include retouching designed to enhance and highlight your natural beauty.

Jess – Model Shoot – Cape Charles, VA

On a very warm Saturday morning, our intern, Jess, agreed to rise early for a morning shoot on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The goal was dance photos around some old rail cars on display in Cape Charles. Jess was a very accomplished ballet dancer until an injury forced her to end her dance career. The dichotomy of the grace and beauty of ballet contrasts against the cold, mechanical rail cars. These images will also serve as some of Jess’s senior portraits.

Announcing Our “Top Model Award” Winner

Since television programs such as America’s Next Top Model and Models of the Runway have been so popular, even more young women are now seeking modeling as a career. Since we’ve seen an abundance of beautiful faces around here lately, we decided to give our own “Top Model” award to a model we deem worthy of the honor.

In addition to pageant girls needing headshots, we’ve gotten several requests recently from beautiful girls wanting to break into modeling. They call and set up sessions hoping we can capture amazing images of them, strong enough that when an agency looks at their portfolios they will want to sign them.

We have an aspiring model coming in soon and not wanting to disappoint her with anything less than fabulous prints, Jessica come in to help me one evening. I needed to try the new lighting setup Carl designed specifically for model’s headshots. Before the night ended, Jessica had put on an assortment of outfits ranging from formal wear to cowgirl gear. Close-ups to full length. This “Runway to Rodeo” session turned out to be time well spent; it was good to be able to test some poses as well as the new lights.

Some of what we tried I loved. Other stuff – not so much. One shot, the bubble gum image, we did just for fun. She was a good sport about it. That’s what we like about using Jessica. She’ll try anything! Besides, how often does will she have an excuse to chew several pieces of bubble gum at the same time and blow a huge bubble? If nothing else, it made a cute profile picture for her facebook page!

Without further adieu, Hampton Roads Photography proudly announces this month’s Top Model award recipient. The award goes to – (drumroll please…) Jessica! Our ever patient muse puts up with a lot around here when we need a body in front of the camera. Being such a good sport about it all, she deserves this “distinctive” honor!
