John Cachero Photography was hired by CNN.com for freelance photography in Norfolk, Virginia for an article in their Health section.
CNN Health: "How to Guard Against Baby Snatchers"
I was assigned to get a family portrait of the Norfolk family who was going to be featured in the article. As guidance, the writer told me that he wanted the portrait to "evoke family, security, strength, and love". When I posted a gallery of shots for him and his fellow staff to select a portrait to be used, they picked my favorite. He said they all agreed that this portrait was simply gorgeous and exactly what they wanted.
I was glad I delivered what they asked for, especially since this is my first work published by a national news organization. (I'm so stoked.)
Here are a few of the family portraits of the Jones family that I took that day. The first photo is the one featured in the article.
