I’ve been out on location shooting so much lately, I’ve fallen a little behind in my blog posts. I usually post a few sneak peeks on facebook & myspace within a day or two of the session (FB & Myspace pages can be found under the ‘links’ button). Once I’ve processed the photos and created the video, then I’ll post about that particular shoot.
We had a great shoot with Rachel around the downtown Norfolk area. After starting out around Harbor Park, we headed towards Town Point Park. As always, we started walking and found a few awesome new spots. We had a blast with Rachel, a 2010 senior from Kempsville High School, and her mom. Rachel is a cheerleader and track athlete. She also cheers with FAME. It was fun talking with her mom about the contrasts I was trying to create between Rachel’s various outfits and the urban, edgy look of downtown. We did have the strange smells around the water taxi area, so we didn’t stay there long. We had a good laugh as Rachel’s mom was joking about her finding a place to change around the Half Moone Cruise Center. We finished up at the pier near Nauticus as the sun was going down.
We had a great time and a lot of laughs during the shoot and created some outstanding images. Be sure to check out her video slideshow at the bottom of the post. Feel free to leave a comment to let me know what you think. Enjoy.
