Welcome to shoot #3! Exploring emotions through color has been a big focus for us the past few months. With this series, we took things a step further and allowed ourselves to explore identity or more accurately, a "loss of identity" through color as well.
We purchased matching tights + gloves in lilac purple, then used a Nix Color Sensor to find a paint color that perfectly matched. We selected Dahlia by Sherwin Williams.
David built a purple cube, matching bench, and we painted everything the same shade of purple.
This was the first shoot where the set had a ceiling. In order to light the set, David cut a hole the exact size of the soft box so the the ceiling light could serve as the key light for the shoot and beautifully light the subject.
Concealing identity and shaping the body into sculptural poses was the primary focus. We wanted the body to become the work of art. We were so intrigued by this concept that we continued the series with 3 other colors as well.

Life Update! It has been an amazing 9 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments. You can check out our new work by heading to jadaanddavid.com or following us on instagram @jadaanddavid.
There are still a couple more opportunities to work with us this fall! We have a limited number of Thanksgiving Front Porch Sessions available. We also have fall mini sessions available at some of our favorite locations around RVA for select dates this fall! You can book those sessions directly from this link!
