Virginia Beach Senior Portraits Trash the Dress


Virginia Beach Senior Portraits Trash the Dress! (click on image to enlarge) Are you looking for a someone for your senior portrait session? Contact us today! 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. Sometimes our high school seniors want to do a Trash the Dress Session.   (click on image to enlarge)   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!   (click on image to enlarge) Are you ready to schedule your Trash the Dress session? Contact us today!

Here are a few more cool senior photos that we captured. Norfolk Senior Pictures at the Park Our last stop for Nick’s photo shoot was the park. We love having different colors and backgrounds in our portraits. The park is usually a great place to find an array of that. Here are some of our favorite senior photos of Nick at the park. I will tell you that some of my personal favorite photos are the ones with him and his dog. We love incorporating pet photography into our photo shoots.

We are always looking for creative ways to incorporate a seniors interests. Rachael brought in her dvds and we did the rest.   Formal Senior Portraits Many of our seniors like to bring in a formal to be photographed in.

High School Senior Portraits | Anna

Performing Artist Headshots

You might think by looking at these photos that Anna is a model. No, she a Virginia Beach high school senior. We had the privilege of photographing her senior portraits in our downtown Norfolk studio. We also did several shots in our outdoor area. Contact us today to schedule your senior portraits. Anna’s Senior Pictures Lighting can be a photographer’s best friend or worst nightmare. Knowing how to use natural light to your advantage is key to capturing amazing senior photos. The dramatic effect of the light behind Anna in this outdoor shot really evokes the mood we wanted to set. The use of the ring-light in our studio creates an ethereal effect in portraits that’s just stunning. Anna’s portrait glows; her eyes pierce in this photo. The Urban backdrop is another element we wanted to highlight in Anna’s senior portraits. Use of textural backgrounds, whether indoors or out, help us accomplish this. Like many seniors, Anna was a bit nervous about her photo session. But, we prepare our students with helpful hints on what to wear and bring to make the photo shoot a breeze. Anna coordinated her outfits perfectly and brought lots of accessories to pull it all off. Once she was prepared and we did the shoot, she loved the experience. Enjoyed seeing Anna’s senior pictures?
