Ramsey Family

It’s been just about a year since I had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful family, so I suppose it’s long overdue that I post some of my favorites here.  We love these awesome people, and are so glad that they moved back to the area after being gone for a short while.

Claire – Senior 2013 – Atlee High School

Claire is an accomplished violinist, academic whiz and she beams with enthusiasm and “spunk.”  Oh, yeah, and she’s absolutely gorgeous!  We had a blast in and around Downtown Richmond, VA and Capitol Square for her senior photo session.  We spent 3 hours meandering around the Capitol grounds and at Jefferson Park capturing her senior photos.  There was never a dull moment, and we got some really great shots.  I’m sure you’ll agree.

A couple of weeks ago, my wife participated in the 2012 MDA MusicFest.  It was a lot of fun, and while she was there I grabbed some photos.  Here are a few of the photos, and a link to a larger gallery.

Gabe is my wife’s cousin. We went down and grabbed a few shots at their reception.  They are such a happy family and we wish them well on their new adventure together!

We had a great session with James and Cathy a couple weeks ago. We started with a couple pics at their place, and then went down to Belle Isle to get some shots.

Holiday Greeting Card Samples

We’ve had several requests for holiday greeting card samples, so we thought we’d place a few options here for some ideas.

4″ x 8″ flat greeting cards come with envelopes, and are available in any number over the 20 card minimum. Other card sizes available upon request.

Use the left and right arrow keys after clicking a design to quickly flip through them.

I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing family and their awesome 1931 Model A.  We had so much fun and I was so happy to be able to get them some great shots.

Mini-Golf Night

Posted by Chris on Sep 21, 2011 | 0 comments

We had a blast playing mini-golf the other day.  The kids had fun and we all love to whack the ball.  I won by one point. 🙂

Lighting was natural for a couple and then the nasty artificial lights took over as it got darker.  I balanced the camera on a fence for the family shot.

Firey Sunset

Posted by Chris on Aug 27, 2011 | 0 comments

My wife and I had a great date night that included Panera Bread for dinner and a quick photo session with a sunset that was spectacular.  Thanks for the clouds, Hurricane Irene.

Since this is my photo blog, I suppose I should detail the setup for the shoot.  It was simple.  One LumoPro LP160 at 1/4 power with a shoot through umbrella.  I fired it with Cacuts V5 triggers.  The strobe was placed about 8 feet from the subject, about 3-5 feet left or right of the camera, depending on the shot.  A rim or back light would have helped make these really pop, but I didn’t pack one in the bag as I didn’t think the sky would turn out very nice.  Boy was I wrong about that. 🙂
