Addison was one of my models for my first Dance Portrait Shoot. I have added Dance Portraits as part of my photography business. I knew there were lots of dancers in my area so I decided to provide a way for them to remember their time taking dance. My first dance portrait shoot took place in Downtown Norfolk. I used some of the cool streets and alleyways in downtown and then moved over to the Neon Arts District to use some of the amazing murals as backdrops. Addison was a wonderful model and dancer. Her ballet moves blew me away. I can’t wait to start photographing more dancers.
Meighan is a senior at Indian River High School and is a member of the Class of 2019 JCP Street Team. Meighan was a great member of the team. I loved photographing her for the styled photo shoots. She has an amazing personality that shined through in her photographs. For Meighan’s senior portraits she wanted a fall backdrop. She decided to take some in downtown Norfolk in the Neon District. She loved the colorful murals in the area and definitely wanted those in some of her senior portraits. Her two beautiful prom dresses looked stunning in the urban environment. For the second location Meighan chose OAK Grove Lake Park. She wanted to see the gorgeous fall leaves in some of her photos and Oak Grove was a perfect location. I love doing fall senior sessions and Meighan’s is one of my favorites.
Skye | Great Bridge High School | Class of 2019
Skye is a senior at Great Bridge High School in Chesapeake, VA. Skye is a member of my JCP Street Team. I had the pleasure of photographing her for the two group photo shoots for the JCP Street Team, so I knew Skye’s senior session would be a lot of fun to photograph. Skye wanted a few different locations for her senior portraits. The first location was Norfolk Botanical Garden. A gorgeous location for senior portraits with lots of greenery, trees and flowers. Skye wore her prom dress for a more formal look and then wore a cute floral dress and denim jacket. Both outfits looked amazing with the garden as a backdrop. The second location was the beach at First Landing State Park. The beach has a pretty wooden walkway that always looks great for portraits and then of course there’s the sand dunes and beach which are always a popular location for a senior session. Both locations were a great choice and made for beautiful senior portraits.
Today's blog is all about Lexy's photos from my JCP Street Team Downtown Norfolk Photo Shoot. Lexy participated in my JCP Street Team shoot with the four other girls. Everyone was a joy to photograph. I wanted to do a photo shoot in downtown Norfolk, but use two different locations. The first location was the Freemason Neighborhood. It's a beautiful area with old historic homes and cobblestone streets. It was a perfect backdrop for the photo shoot. For the second location I chose the Norfolk Neon Arts District. The girls look for this location was more urban with jeans, t-shirt and sneakers, so the gorgeous murals were an amazing backdrop for these images. I'm thrilled with the way everyone's images turned out for the JCP Street Team Shoot and I can't wait to do the girl's senior portrait shoots next.
