    Senior Photos

    Meet Jacob. He chose us to be his photographer for his senior portraits. He had a few ideas for his photo session, but wanted us to come up with the rest. He is an avid reader so we wanted to incorporate that into some photos. He loves Harry Potter books. He also loves the beach, so we new that we would photograph on location for some of his senior portrait session.

    Senior Photo Ideas

    Coming up with great photo ideas for any portrait session is important. Senior photos are really important. Having ideas for your photo shoot is critical. As a photographer it is our job to discuss with you your hobbies and interests. We will then come up with suggestions and locations.

    We also are responsible for correctly posing our clients. It is always interesting to me when my clients are nervous because they are sure how to pose! Well the good news is that isn’t their job, that is our job as a photographer.

    Senior portrait time is such an important time in a high school senior’s life. It is their last year of school. It’s the year they start focusing on college admissions and let’s face it, they are under a lot of peer pressure. Our seniors trust us and leave it up to us to make them look good.

    On Location Photography

    When selection a location we look at many details. We look at backgrounds, textures, colors and most importantly light! You can choose a gorgeous location to be photographed at, but if the light is not right, the result becomes less then desirable. If you are a photographer and are struggling with finding or creating great light. We can help!

    A great example of good light/bad light is the beach. Gorgeous we all know at all times of the day. Gorgeous on camera, only during the sweet light time or golden hour.

    Golden hour takes place about 1 hour prior to sunset.


    Choosing your Senior Portrait Photographer

    If it is time for your senior portraits or any type of portrait session, chose your photographer wisely. Make sure you see a full portfolio. Also, make sure that you are their interest and achieving your vision is their goal. When you feel confident and comfortable with your photographer that will result in great portraits!

    Here are a few more of our favorite photos from Jacob’s senior photo session.

     Indiana Wedding Photography

    As a wedding photographer, we love photographing in different locations. For most photographers this may be a challenge but for us, we thrive on it. We love the idea of being in a location that is unique to us. Indiana was one of those places.

    Bride by a Rustic Barn

    What seems so common for Indiana natives, is unique to others. Barns, prairies and cornfields really got us excited about Chris and Ashley’s wedding photography.

    Bride Getting Ready Photos

    We cherish the time that we get to spend photographing a bride getting ready. When we have mom involved in the process we love it even more. The time spent with a mom and daughter on a wedding day is valuable. Being chosen to be the wedding photographer is priceless.

    First Look Wedding Pictures

    Who doesn’t love a first look? Well, I can tell you as a wedding photographer we love it. We find that if a bride and groom decide to do a first look we get real emotion. The wedding day is a buzz and a first look seems to calm the soul. We find that during a first look a bride and groom get to really enjoy their time together, cherish each other and take a deep breath. While we are photographing the first look we stay rather stealthy so that we don’t interfere with the emotion. We position the groom facing away from where the bride will enter. We always choose an area where the groom will hear the bride approaching. The bride then will give the groom a little tap and when he turns around, the magic happens.

    We then are able to capture some private portraits of the bride a groom. Here are just a few of our favorites from the wedding.

    Senior Portraits

    We are senior portrait photographers and we love creating a variety of styles of senior pictures. We think that senior portraits should be fun, unique and have a balance of style. In our senior photo sessions we love to bring a little bit of all styles. We blend traditional portraits with more modern portraiture. We are able to change the style of our photography by changing our lenses, lighting and locations.

    In a normal senior portrait session we will photograph one to two hours. If our high school seniors opt for a one hour photo session we generally will stay close to our studio. With our photography studio being located in the historic area of downtown Norfolk we are able to incorporate texture, parks and an urban feel to our backgrounds.

    In a two hour senior portrait photo shoot, we generally incorporate an additional location. Most of the time seniors want to be photographed at the beach.

    Trash the Dress Photo Sessions

    Trash the dress sessions started for brides that wanted to do fun portraits in their wedding gowns. This has been a huge movement because Trash the Dress sessions are so much fun. I believe that the fun comes from doing something in a beautiful gown that you are not suppose to. Some examples would be, getting in the ocean in your gown, or maybe running through the alleyways of downtown. When we photograph Trash the Dress sessions, we are able to create one of a kind portraits.

    We have had so much fun photographing Trash the Dress sessions with our brides that we decided that we would offer Trash the Dress sessions with our high school seniors! It has been a blast!

     NASCAR The Brickyard Sports Photos

    In sports photography, there is no greater sports event to photograph then NASCAR. I am sure that everyone would have their own opinion, so this one is definitely mine. Scott and I have been avid fans of NASCAR for the 27 years that we have been married. My love for the sport began as a small child. My dad would pack us up in the Winnabego and off we would go to the races. We would always arrive days before the NASCAR race to get the full experience of the track. Practice, meet and greets with the NASCAR drivers, you name it, we did it.

    Now as adults and still loving the sport, being a sport photographer for a NASCAR race is thrilling for us. To be so close to the action is exhilarating.

    We traveled to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to view and capture all the sports events for the day.


    NASCAR Inspection Pictures

    Here are just a few photos from the Brickyard Inspection area.

    We loved using the equipment that we did for photographing this race. As you can see from these images, it brought us very close to each of these drivers.

    NASCAR Flagmen Photos

    NASCAR flagmen are always hard at work from start to finish. Photographing them is always exciting capturing their constant duties.

    Some of the most exciting shots during a race can be all the pit road action. All the action that happens during a single photo makes sports photography so much fun. Check out a few of our favorite pit stop photos from the Brickyard.

    Adam’s Newborn Photography Session

    As a newborn photographer, we are always excited to meet these precious babies. Newborn photos are so fun for us. All our babies that we photograph as so snuggly. We love the time we have during our newborn photography sessions because we really get to share the joy of a brand new baby with their parents and we get to document it! It doesn’t get much better then that.


    Newborn Portrait

    While we get so excited about every newborn session, we were especially excited about this one. The reason why this photo shoot was so special is that we photographed Adam’s mom and dad’s wedding just a few years ago. We always strive to be our clients photographer for life and this newborn session is an example of that.

    Meet Mary and Patrick.

    Sacred Heart Church and Chrysler Museum Wedding

    Theresa and Victor were married at two of the most beautiful venues in Norfolk. Sacred Heart Church and the Chrysler Museum of Art.

    When you look at these stunning wedding pictures you may think to yourself, “Who couldn’t have a stunning wedding at those two venues?”. If you are thinking that, you would be wrong. A gorgeous flawless wedding like Theresa’s and Victor’s only comes under the direction of an excellent wedding planner. Ted Martinez of Ted Martinez Event Management was the key. Theresa and Victor gave Ted their perfect wedding vision and Ted and his team made it a reality. He not only made it a reality, he went over and beyond.

    The day started at the Norfolk Marriott.

    Stunning Bride

    The hotel room was a buzz with the excitement of the wedding day. There we found the bridesmaids, the bride, the parents of the brides and some very special vendors. Sarah Rillon was a very busy make up artist creating flawless makeup and Pin Up Doll Hair Design was working her magic on the bridal party.

    The video team from Light Works Films was also capturing all the excitement on film.

    In the picture above you will see all the beautiful wedding details. With the unique wedding invitation being created by Kat Blu Studios, Day of Stationery created by Paper Stylist. They set the tone for the elegant wedding day.

    Chrysler Museum Wedding Reception

    Once we arrived at the Chrysler Museum of Art it was obviously that this wedding reception was going to be the pinnacle of the day. For a bride and groom the wedding day can become a blur so that is why it is so important to have great wedding photography to capture all the details of the day. Theresa and Victor’s wedding reception was full of amazing details.

    We love when our wedding day is surrounded by vendors that are truly the A-Team. Blue Steel Lighting set the tone for the entire reception. They made the ambiance of the room stunning. With the Florals and Designs by Ivie Joy Flowers & Events they made the room breathtaking. That was not where it stopped. The catering was by Cuisine and Company, the talented Jamestown Quartet, the gorgeous cake by Shockley’s Sweet Shoppe and caricature drawings by talented caricature artists for the guests.

    As the wedding reception processed, we were entertained by the sounds of the A-Town A-List. I have to tell you, hands down, one of the best bands I have ever heard.

    Now, here are some of the amazing wedding reception details.
