Work \ Release | Styled Shoot with Michelle Amarillo and Studio Posy

Michelle and Marissa asked me to help them showcase one of our favorite new venues in Norfolk, Work | Release. I’ve seen Styled Shoots throughout the years, but had yet to do one, so I wasn’t sure about it all, truth be told. But, with the gorgeous space that is Work | Release, our perfect models Heather and Josh, and the bold and fun styling and creativity bursting from Michelle and Marissa, I’d be hard pressed to screw up. We put on some music and just explored the space…and I am so happy with the photos! But I just can’t say it enough: it was the styling, the ideas, the model’s energy and the setting that made this shoot something special. No false modesty here. Good images depend on three things…style, subject and setting. With this team of pros and this amazing venue—my job was easy 🙂
