In a sea of Virginia wedding photographers I managed to meet Rosie Omar. The truth is she found me and I’m so glad she did! Rosie is not only a fantastic photographer but a dear friend of mine. This session quickly landed many images as my favorite portraits with the inclusion of her fur baby Dobby! For my Harry Potter fans yes he is Dobby! Rosie is a Marine Corps Veteran. You wouldn’t have guessed right?! Her drive to serve her clients and grow as an artist is where I see it shine through. One of my favorite things about Rosie is her honesty and willingness to help those around her. She is the kind of friend who drives 2 hours (in traffic!) to make it to your birthday dinner after working for 8 hours straight. Yeah she did!
The light in her home office is gorgeous. I just love a neutral color palate and the light that pours in from all around. We had such a fun afternoon taking photos, eating Chinese food and catching on on Scandal! For Photographers: All the images below are film! At the end of the post I share a bit about my gear and film stock.
For Photographers: The images above are Fuji 400 rated at 400 and pushed 1 in development.
The black and white images are Fuji and converted to black and white in Lightroom.
The camera I used is a Pentax 645nii with a 75mm lens.
