Norfolk, Virginia Freelance Photography for CNN.com - Jones Family Portrait


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.

2011 Senior Portraits in Norfolk, Virginia - Brittany B.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Brittany's 2011 senior portraits in Norfolk, Virginia.

Brittany is a senior at Tallwood High School in Virginia Beach, but wanted to get her portraits taken in and around downtown Norfolk where she works.  We discussed where we both thought would be fun places to shoot and then knocked it out her photos one fine Sunday afternoon.

Here are some of my favorites from my senior portraits session with Brittany.

2011 Senior Portraits in Chesapeake, Virginia - Katie I.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Katie's 2011 senior portraits in Chesapeake, Virginia.

Katie is a senior at Hickory High School who not only loves cars and racing, but also knows her way around an auto garage.  When she's not racing go-karts, she's working on vehicles alongside her dad.  My main goal for this session was to capture the passion for automobiles that she shares with her father.

I was fortunate to photograph Katie's senior portraits with two of the most awesome props I've gotten to use thus far... her family's 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport and 1930 Ford Model A.

Classic cars, antique cars, and a pretty girl?  That's a recipe for some great shots.  Here are just some of my favorites.

(Also, at the end of the post, I included the collage I designed for the full page ad Katie's parents bought for the 2011 Hickory High School yearbook.  I removed the text at Katie's request so that she could read her parents' message to her when she gets her yearbook in the spring.)

2010 Senior Portraits in Norfolk, Virginia - Traci O.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Traci's 2010 senior portraits in Norfolk, Virginia.  Even though Traci is a student in Chesapeake, Virginia, she indulged my suggestion that we explore the Waterside Marina and the newly renovated Town Point Park in downtown Norfolk.  I met Traci through her sister, Linda, whose engagement portraits and wedding I had shot earlier this year.  And just like the time I had spent with her sister, Traci and I started having fun during our shoot once I quickly gained her trust in me behind the camera, which allowed her to relax in front of the camera, which, in turn, led to some fantastic portraits.

Here are some of my favorite shots from her session.

Family Portraits in Norfolk, Virginia - C.J. & Mike

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing C.J. and Mike's family portraits in Norfolk, Virginia.  C.J. was only a couple weeks from giving birth, so they wanted photos to make a photo book keepsake for their newborn son as well as a family portrait to use in their announcements that their bundle of joy has arrived.

We only had less than an hour between that morning's rain storm and the rain storm that came down on us to end the session, but we were able to boogie through all the set-ups we were hoping to capture.  C.J. and Mike's oldest son was a natural in front of the camera, and even though the little one got a little fussy, we managed to nail some shots with him smiling... but, as always, the fussy shots turn out great as well.

Here are some of my favorite shots.

Virginia Beach, Virginia Model Photography - Jenni M.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Jenni M., a model looking to expand her portfolio, on the beach at Little Island Park in Sandbridge, Virginia Beach,  Virginia.  A photographer friend of mine, Eric Fadden, had worked with Jenni before and set up this session with her for us.

As such, I let Eric work with Jenni first.  When it was my turn to work with Jenni, I simply asked her what shots she needed for her portfolio and she told me she was interested in general fashion photography shots and headshots.  Once we started, we quickly got comfortable with each other.  By showing her some of the shots we were getting, I gained her trust in my ability behind the lens which allowed her to shine in front of the lens.  Although she had her own repertoire of poses and expressions, she was very accommodating when trying the poses and expressions that I suggested.  Jenni was very easy going and lots of fun, and I very much look forward to working with her again.

Here are my favorite shots from our session:

Virginia Beach, Virginia Engagement Photography - Linda & Travis

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Linda and Travis' engagement portraits on and around the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier at the Virginia Beach, Virginia oceanfront.  Shooting on the busy pier proved to be a fun exercise in patience, and I have to hand it to Linda and Travis for staying in the moment for me as we landed certain shots.  After finishing up on top of the pier, we ventured under the pier and onto the beach for more shots.  We finished the session on the oceanfront boardwalk as the setting sun graced us with her golden light.  Here are a few of my favorite shots of Linda and Travis:

(*As of posting this, I've already shot Linda and Travis' wedding in the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Look for that blog post soon...)

Senior Portraits in Chesapeake, Virginia - Shannon K.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Shannon's 2009 senior portraits in Chesapeake, Virginia.  Although we both had ideas about where we could go to shoot this session, we decided to just take advantage of her family's beautiful backyard as well as the rest of her amazing neighborhood.  I had a great time shooting her portraits, and at the end of the session, I really believed her when she exclaimed, "That was really fun!"  I'd like to thank Shannon's mom who, at first, was going to stick around for the entire shoot, but then decided her presence might cause unnecessary pressure, and instead, spent the session inside the house.  I personally don't mind if parents watch when I'm photographing their children, but with no one else around, Shannon was able to really relax, to enjoy her time in front of the lens, and to completely put her trust in me behind the lens, and this really shines through in her senior portraits.

Norfolk, Virginia Engagement Photography - Kelly & Marty

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Kelly and Marty's engagement portraits in the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia.  These two were an absolute joy to shoot.  Not only were they willing to do anything I suggested, but they also were open to the artistic direction from my friend and fellow photographer, Jesse Courtemanche.  We had a great time getting to know Kelly and Marty, and I'm sure the rapport we established with each other will translate into an equally fun experience when Jesse and I shoot their wedding in May.

Senior Portraits in Virginia Beach, Virginia - Kelly

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Kelly's 2009 senior portraits in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  We headed out to First Landing State Park to shoot this series of portraits on the various hiking trails, taking full advantage of the first warm winter day we've had so far.  I'd like to thank Kelly for trusting my vision that photographing a pretty girl in a desolate environment would produce some lovely portraits.  We all had a really fun time, and she and her parents have agreed to have me shoot a second session of senior portraits once the weather warms up and Hampton Roads turns green again.
