THE MOORE FAMILY | PLEASURE HOUSE POINT NATURAL AREA | VIRGINIA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER

Anyone who knows the Moore family, or has even had the pleasure of being in their company knows what I am about to say is pure FACT!

I swear there wasn’t one moment that Chris wasn’t cracking a joke, making a strange look, or even causing trouble like a little child. (AND I SAY THIS WITH ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD!) Because every moment we all were walking around, capturing his family, and even just setting up a scene he was quick to say something to make everyone start laughing.

But the greatest part of this family… Was how supportive and caring they were with each other. Watching how Chris was quick to pull his wife close to him for those sweet pictures, or how the children would grab on to their Grandma, even when someone just doubted how they were looking this whole family was fast to jump in and encourage one another.

I’ve been around so many families as a photographer and just seeing how this beautiful family could truly laugh, smile, and pick on one another, but be the first to be the support they needed was a treasure to see.

I still look back at this session and realize just how lucky I was to be their to capture their story.

Thank you so much to the Moore family for showing the world around you what ‘FAMILY’ really is and means.

I hope to capture many more of your crazy and loving family in the years to come. ❀

The Hughs Family Session | Bayville Farms Park | Falls Sessions

Oh how I love when my families return for more moments together… Each so unique and full of character. And my sweet family here made sure to bring the laughter with them… Showing us all just how amazing The Hughs family is. πŸ™‚

The whole session was full of laughter between Father and Son. Each taking their turn to make their Queen of their home laugh and smile at every turn. Whether that be tossing acorns her way, photo-bombing her images, or just by making silly faces.

I can’t help but laugh as I write about their story. I can just see that day and watch how this Queen would laugh and tease them back. A family full of love and adventure. Each showing their own side and personality. And of course in the end they were full of hugs and kisses. Knowing that they would have to make sure their Queen was safe and loved.

I know many families who joke about their uniqueness and beauty… But The Hughs family will ALWAYS stand out as one of the most lovable, sweet, and carefree session to date.

It’s families such as this one that make me enjoy capturing stories and moments I know my families will forever treasure. A blessing the Tashena Shaw Photography Family will forever be grateful for. ❀

When Your Hubby Offers To Be A Model… | Black And White Images | Virginia Beach

Last year I was looking for a male model to help me with a photo shoot idea.Β  I ONLY wanted to capture these images in black and white.Β  I wanted to challenge myself in another way with my photography.Β  So when I was talking to my Husband about my ideas and the style model I was looking for.Β  He jokingly said,Β  “Hey!Β  I will model for you.”Β  Well I guess he wasn’t expecting his Wife to say,Β  “Well I don’t need to find a model now.Β  I’ve got you!”

Thankfully during this session I had a handsome model to work with!Β  He was perfect and took direction very well.Β  Also helped that I have a huge crush on him…Β  So capturing him was a simple task.Β  πŸ˜‰

I wanted this session to be relaxed, natural, captured in black and white only, and in a way to be serious.Β  No smiles, looking at the camera, or in any way showing his true personality.Β  Because anyone who knows my Husband Mike…Β  KNOWS he gives thumbs up when pictures are being taken, smirks all the time, and can’t be serious for to long.Β  He is the light of the party and isΒ always trying to make me smile.Β  ❀

After the session was over and I started to cull throughΒ our images…Β  And at that time I found myself proud!Β  I was proud that I was able to complete this goal of ONLY capturing in black and white.Β  I was proud of my amazing Husband for putting up with me while I captured another side of him.Β  I was proud at the fact that seeing my Husband in another light was something to be proud of in itself.

Now looking back at these images…Β  It makes me want to shoot again with him.Β  Makes me want to create another concept and shoot away.

So dear Husband of mine…Β  If you are reading this…Β  Looks like we will need to work together again…Β  And soon!Β  πŸ˜‰
