From Maternity session

Katrina has a six year old son, named Maddox. This image really shows his attitude towards his soon-to-be sister. What a terrific little guy!

First Maternity Session

From session last weekend with Katrina and her family. Katrina and I worked on this after the family shots. I finally have this image about the way I wanted it.

Maternity session with Katrina and family

I had never shot a maternity session prior to yesterday. I was pleased when Katrina, a colleague from a previous school-related episode, called me to see if I would be interested in doing some pictures. Seemed like a good opportunity to do something new.

New to me, anyhow. There are many good photographers who seem to specialize in photos of mothers and newborns. Some will wrap babies in cheesecloth and the link . . . seems pretty high-risk to me. In any event, there were no newborns in tow for this shoot. Just Katrina, and Jeremy, and Maddox, who is sharp as a tack for a six-year-old.

After we worked on some basic poses, Katrina was up for some other shots.

Kenji Fusion

 Kenji Fusion is a restaurant that is part of the new Peninsula Town center, a series of storefronts that, at this time of year, is all done up for the holidays. I had the opportunity to photography both the restaurant and some of the dishes. 

The interior decor is striking. This restaurant is apparently a successor to another one in New Jersey.



Kenji Fusion specializes in the high energy Teppanyaki style where skilled chefs prepare food and entertain customers table-side. In addition, the menu offers a fusion of Asian, French, Brazilian, and other 
cultural food offerings from around the globe.

ODU vs. Savannah State

ODU was too much for a hapless Savannah State team, and they crushed the visitors 57-9 on a brisk Saturday afternoon at Foreman Field. I will admit that I had never seen a team attempt three onside kicks in a half before; Bobby Wilder's team came out ultra-aggresive from the opening kick, and knocked the Tigers on their heels, a position from which they never recovered. 
ODU's 57 points were the most scored by the Monarchs in a game to date, surpassing last season's 49 against Division II Virginia Union. This win seals a second consecutive winning season for the 6-3 Monarchs, following a 9-2 mark a year ago. 57-9. And it really wasn't that close.
Herewith an assortment of images:

Sara and Sam

A selection of images taken last Saturday at first Landing State Park with this happy couple. Sara and Sam are getting married on January 1, and we will be there! Took some of these images with a new lens, the Nikkor AF 135mm f/2 D DC. The "DC" stands for "defocus control," which means you can emphasize the degree of foreground or background blur (bokeh) beyond the sheer potential of a large aperture lens. It works beautifully, as you can see.
