Carrie’s farm portrait session in Virginia Beach.

“Hey Mark, I have an idea” are my favorite words to hear.

It’s been far too long since I had the honor of working with Carrie so when she reached out to me recently with an idea to do a fashion session on a local farm I couldn’t say “yes” fast enough.

You see, I’m a farm boy born and raised so this was a homecoming of sorts.

I know I’m known for sessions at the beach as well as in urban environments. However, when the world is your backdrop anything and everything becomes an option. All we need is an idea and we are off to the races.

It’s that time of year.

Gearing up for another portrait season outside.

Things are finally warming up out there which means a return to outdoor sessions. Personally, I’m counting the days until I can return to the beach and other wonderful locations.

I’m also building a small studio set up at my place in case the weather won’t cooperate or a client wants studio portraits done. I’m posting an image from a test run I did here recently.

That being said here’s a reminder of just what kind of portrait sessions I offer. These can be done on location or at my place:

Sean Facyson’s Fitness Session in downtown Norfolk, Virginia.

It was my first time working with Sean but it won’t be my last.

I had the opportunity to work with Sean Facyson thanks to our mutual friend, and fellow fitness buff, Amira Juma. I was talking to her about the fact that I’d like to do a session with a guy. This blog is filled with beautiful women, I told her, but it would be a great change of pace to bring more dudes on board.

Now, I know some of you think I just photograph women and that’s all I want to shoot. Nothing could be further from the truth. I love working with guys, too. It’s just hard to find ones willing to step in front of the camera. It took Amira less than 5 seconds to suggest Sean and put us together. After some messaging back and forth he and I agreed to a time, date and location.
