Mrs. C’s Virginia Beach fitness portrait session.

Mother Nature provided the background, Mrs. C. was the storm. Read about what got her into fitness.

Mrs. C. is a force of nature. She exudes confidence and strength. I knew I wanted to capture that essence but also the fact that she’s a beautiful woman during our recent beach portrait session on a cloudy, windy day at First Landing State Park.

My intent with every session I do is to make it all about the person in front of the lens. I want to capture their inner essence, them being them. We will set up the shot with the outfit, lighting, and such but then I pause before putting the camera to my face and ask them a question or give them a thought to work on. Then I let them loose to interpret that idea or thought.

“You do you.” is what I tell them. Then we go.

Eileen is my Throwback Thursday with a twist.

Also – there’s still plenty of nice days for beach portrait sessions left in the season.

Before I get into Eileen’s inspirational story I want to take a moment to point out that there’s still time to book a outdoor portrait session. As I write this, the forecast for the day is calling for highs in the upper 80’s with the next seven days in the lower 80’s. So, if you are thinking about a portrait session outside like at the beach, contact me today.

Ok, so a little backstory about this series. Eileen and I teamed up for a beach sunrise session back in the summer of 2014. She was, and still is, a fitness enthusiast and wanted images done to document her hard work and effort. We met up one morning and created what I thought were amazing images.

Miss S’s first sunrise fitness session at Virginia Beach.

The restart of her fitness journey.

Miss S. and I have been friends for some time now. We did a mini-fashion session back in the spring that went really well. We’ve chatted a few times about doing a sunrise fitness session from time to time but there was always something that got in the way like conflicting schedules. Until recently.

Miss S. is a member of the fitness community, as the title suggests. She has been involved in the lifestyle for a while and was a fitness competitor until recently. While she has hung up her posing bikini, she’s still active as a trainer. Which brings us to the reason for this session.

Chantelle’s recent Virginia Beach sunrise session.

This Aussie transplant always brings the sass.

A tease from my fitness session with Sean Facyson

I love working in the streets of downtown Norfolk, Virginia

So proud of these images that I couldn’t help but post a tease from the set we did this past Friday. There are very few feelings that feel this great as when all 8 cylinders are firing during a session like this. Can’t wait for this season’s on-location sessions to get going full time.
