WELCOME 

I want to Welcome you and Thank you for visiting Captured Moments Photography LLC.  Captured Moments Photography LLC is a licensed photographer located in the heart of Great Bridge in Chesapeake VA and is a Hampton Roads premier Senior and Family Portrait Specialist. 

What sets me apart from other photographers is the fact that I am extremely compassionate about what I do, I have been since age 5. 50 years now.  I give that extra bit of attention to anyone I am photographing. I have a way with people, always have.  I WILL go the extra mile to make sure YOU are satisfied. My focus is Primarily on High School Senior Portraits. However, I do offer all types of Session photography portraits including Children, Couples, Engagements, Events, Families, Headshots, Maternity, and Wedding Portrait Photography. 

Proudly serving the Southside of Hampton Roads area of Virginia; including the cities of Chesapeake (to include the areas of Great Bridge, Grassfield, Hickory, Indian River, Oscar Smith, and Deep Creek and Western Branch High Schools.)  Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach.  I Can and will travel to the Peninsula.

I LOVE to Capture Moments that will last a lifetime.  My goal is to capture the unique personality of everyone I photograph…

BEHIND THE CAMERA….  

Behind the Camera…

I understand family; I have my own. And I’m dedicated to preserving yours in images that last a lifetime.

I take great pleasure in showcasing my style and philosophy on personal photography. I understand the ties and love that are formed in families, and I am dedicated to bringing out those bonds and memories in your images.

I am a lifelong resident of Chesapeake, Virginia, and live in the heart of Great Bridge. I’m not ashamed to admit that I AM A CHRISTIAN; I have been since age 5. 

There are a few things that I am passionate about in life. My Faith in Jesus Christ, my daughter Taryn, my love of learning, meeting new people, and a love affair and passion I have had with photography ever since the age of 5; when I received my very first camera. All of my life and throughout my teenage years, one could find me with a camera in tow; even in the church.  I take it EVERYWHERE.

I am not your typical Virginia native. Most people like the beach, Not me. Put me in a pair of jeans, cowboy boots, a T-shirt, and put me on a horse in a meadow and I am in my element. Just a country girl. The simpler the life the Better.  If it is the winter you can find me in sweats.

I jumped back into photography again more than 12 years ago, and I literally cannot put my camera down. I think about photography morning, noon, and night. I am constantly and continually honing my craft in order to keep up with new ideas to make things better for my clients.

Some of my work can be seen on the Chesapeake Conference Centers website. I have been published in the Virginian Pilot Clipper several times and I volunteer my time and Talents for the city photographing the Memorial Day Ceremony, 9/11 Ceremony, and Veterans Day Ceremony. I LOVE what I do.

I have been shooting professionally for more than 15 years and I am a member in good standing with PPA- Professional Photographers of America.

I have a passion for working with high school seniors. (Mainly because I have a daughter around that age).  My style can be described as country with a touch of a little vintage thrown in.  As I stated earlier “Just a country girl, the simpler the life the better.”

In the warmer months of the South Usually between late March Early April to the end of September, I enjoy Capturing Seniors, Families, Couples, Maternity, and Weddings. From October to February you can find me photographing Cheering competitions, Dance Competitions, and all types of photography throughout the year.  Anytime I am behind the camera I am my happiest and at my best. Let me prove it to you.

I am FINALLY taking my last class to get my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology with a concentration on Substance and Alcohol Abuse. YEAH ME!

 SENIOR EXPERIENCE 

Congratulations! On making it to your Senior year of High School.  The days of boring, generic posed images from the school photographer are long gone. I graduated almost 40 years ago, and back then we did not have much of a choice of photographers to Capture Moments of our Senior Year. (I did not even get mine done except for the standard drape for the yearbook). NOW you do have a choice and you do not have to use the contracted school photographer for your Senior images. 

I am a people person and I LOVE getting to know my upcoming juniors and seniors and their families each year, it is One of the best parts of my job. Start out as strangers, end up as friends. My main goal is to Capture Moments of your personality in your senior session. Not only are these senior sessions Capturing Moments of some of the best times in your final year of high school; they also show you having fun and allowing your personality to show through. Every Senior I have the chance to photograph has a different personality and emotions and I want to bring that out in their images.

  You deserve to have what YOU want for your session and to show who YOU really are.  I realize how important your senior images are which is why we can work together to create nothing but the best. I would love the opportunity to work together in creating custom images that are as amazing as you are and reflect the true you!

I was born and raised right here in the Hampton Roads area 55 years ago. I have seen this area grow by leaps and bounds. Besides having the World’s Largest Naval Base I truly believe that Hampton Roads has some of the most beautiful scenery, because of this I prefer the Natural Light and the beauty that surrounds our area. All Senior sessions take place outdoors.  (However, I do have access to a studio if I know far enough in advance) I have several locations I work with to include but not limited to:

– Bells Mill Park                     – Chesapeake Arboretum        – Great Bridge Lock Park       -Oak Grove Park   

 – Little Island Park-                – Pagoda                  – Redwing Park                      – Regent University               – Riverwalk   

 -Town Point Park                           – Virginia Tech Arboretum                                -Windsor Castle

– Wildflower Patch                -First Landing                        – Norfolk Botanical Garden                -Downtown Norfolk

-Cobblestone Streets and various alleyways, doorways, brick walls and Neon Districts throughout the Hampton Roads area. There is a $50.00 travel fee to have your shoot in any of the other cities in the Hampton Roads area.  I continue to seek out new, never used before locations for upcoming sessions, but I can and will continue to use the same great locations that Seniors have enjoyed shooting at for years.  

Most photoshoots take place between May and November however I photograph seniors year-round.  When deciding on a time for your senior images keep in mind your favorite time of year. If you prefer the warmer weather of Spring and Summer it is best to schedule between May and August. If you are like me and prefer the cooler temps and changing leaves of the Fall September through November is the time to do your images. If you like it cold and some people do December through early March is the time for you. Senior sessions usually start to book 1 to 4 weeks in advance.

 SENIOR EXPERIENCE (CON’T)

Please be sure to book your session far enough ahead of time so you can get the time and date you want.

I LOVE the beautiful late afternoon light. I think the GOLDEN hour looks so beautiful, so I like to schedule most senior sessions to start 2 to 3 hours before sunset. This can be as early as 3pm or as late as 6pm start time, it all depends on the time of year. The length of your session will depend on how many locations you decide on.

  There is a “Senior Experience” retainer fee of $275.00 plus Virginia Sales Tax of $17.83 which a total of $292.33 due at time of booking your Senior Session. The session fee covers the following:

-Booking your portrait appointment on my Calendar              -A Pre-session phone/ in-person consultation                          

 – My time, and travel                -My talent photographing you and editing your images.          

-the preparation of your images for your gallery              -Personalized viewing ordering appointment
