RVA Headshots & Creative Portraits | Richmond, Va Portrait & Wedding Photography

 

These days, it’s so important to have unique and eye-catching photos to post on instagram or facebook, especially if you are a small business owner, an artist, musician, actor, etc. I get so many emails and messages asking if I do headshots that are a little more approachable than a traditional headshot. I like to describe this kind of shoot as a “creative portrait” session. It’s a blend of traditional headshots and stylized portraiture that truly captures your personality. I use a blend of film and digital photography to give my clients a variety of options to choose from. Not too long ago, I did a senior portrait session for Cole. He was interested in portraits that showcased his own personal style and reflected his aesthetic as a musician. He’s in a band called Flow Resale with his sister, Marigold. I did the most amazing fashion shoot with her in 2017 (which I still need to blog… putting that on my to-do list now)! If you’re interested in a creative portrait session, you can contact me here!

A few of my favorites from our shoot:

 

Richmond, Virginia & Washington, DC Food Photography | Natural Light Photography for Restaurants & Small Businesses

 

If we’re being honest here, food is my favorite thing to photograph. It doesn’t move, it looks beautiful and then you get to eat it! Over the last few years, I’ve been working for a few different companies in Portland, photographing some of my all-time favorite restaurants like Screen Door, Holiday & Fifty Licks Ice Cream. My sister & I both love to bake and cook as well, so we started an instagram (@cestlebrie) where we post all of our favorite food experiences. She lives in DC and I live in Richmond, Virginia now so we finally live close enough that we get to share some of these experiences! I’m excited to start photographing some of the amazing restaurants here in Richmond and in DC too!
