Had a chance to work with two African sistas this weekend. One from Eritrea and one from Tanzania. When then creatives got together, there was magic! Take a look at a few shots of your work together. Definitely want to shoot with them again in the future!
Had the opportunity to work with a lot of young ladies for the Valentine's day themed shoots. A lot of these definitely flexed the creative muscles! I'm happy with the results...hope you like them, too!
Gave this style a try and really pleased with the outcome...especially in B&W! Have a handful of different color suspenders to try multiple different looks. Hoping to expand on this series soon! Enjoy!
Had the pleasure of shooting Kami at night; my time trying such a shoot. I love the images we made and definitely want to do another one! Interested in giving it a shot? Contact me and let's set it up!
Anya and Tim put on a show during our last shoot. This is one talented couple. I look forward to shooting with them again the future!
Had the opportunity to work with Street Empire for the their distressed clothing line. I really enjoyed working with this group of enterprising people...talk about drive! Looking forward to working with them again in the future. Enjoy the photos! Like what you see? Leave a comment!
This week I finally gave maternity photography a shot...and I enjoyed it!! It definitively was out of my comfort zone, but a great experience overall. I hope you like the photos! Leave some feeback!
This year I've had the opportunity to photograph numerous concerts for Chamber Music Society of Central VA. Given the state of "music" today, it's always good to hear great instrumentation from the group! Definitely recommend checking them out at their next show!
Talk about an "interesting" shoot! This weekend I had an opportunity to shoot a Cosplay group based in Richmond, VA. It was very different, but I enjoy the passion the cosplayers brought to the event, the skill they used to create their costumes, and their dedication to stay in character. This was a first for me...and may not be a last! Enjoy!
Talk about an awesome and versatile model! Teauna brought her A game! We were able to pull out three different looks in a short time span. Hope you like them as much as I do!
So I've had the opportunity to work with the Forever Thine Wedding Workflow by Sleeklens. It's a collection of Lightroom presets and brushes to help give unique looks (and dramatically speed up the editing process) of your photos. How do I describe this? One word....WOW!!!!
I really wish I had these a lot earlier! I went back and re-edited two wedding photos using these presets and brushes. Here are the unedited photos:
Not too bad...but they definitely need some life! I used the "Green Mile" film preset in the photo on the left, and some skin softening. On the photo on the right, I used the "Bridesmaid" preset as well as skin softening, added some additional sunflare, and corrected some underexposure issues. Using Lightroom on the Forever Thine workflow, the following photos are results:
I'm definitely satisfied with the results! If you want to learn about about this workflow, visit Sleeklens at:
As always, your feedback is welcome!
I've FINALLY added some fresh content to my website. Check it out and give me some feedback; I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Not sure why, but I've been bitten by the long exposure bug lately! I've gotten a number of awesome pics over the past few months, so I thought I'd share a few of them. Would like to see others you've captured along the way...and share those secret locations, if you're in VA!
What a great opportunity to be in DC for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture! Couldn't miss celebrating this historic occasion. You know what'll be better? Actually be able to get IN the museum one of these days! Until then, I'll be satisfied spending the day in a sea of melanin...it was awesome.
FInally giving sports photography a try...and I think I like it! Although it's more challenging that I originally thought, I find it very enjoyable. Keep an eye out for me at your local sporting events. Need coverage somewhere? Let me know!
Had the opportunity to photograph the plaster busts of past presidents last weekend...what a treat! If you haven't heard about them, highly encourage you to read a few articles on this hidden gem in Williamsburg, VA. I hope in the future they (or something similar) will be accessible to the public. Enjoy the rest of the photos!
Spring is finally here...as you can tell by these tulips dancing in the breeze! Although today is a cool spring day, I look forward to great shoots in the near future!!!
