The Cellist | Tosa West HS class of 2019

Aidan didn't want much messing around for his senior photos. All he really wanted was the one thing that is most important to him: his cello. 

He came into the studio (with his a-dor-able mom, Jill) and carried with him a giant green hard-sided case.

I set up the lights and the backdrop. I put a chair in place. Aidan sat down and I directed him to just "hang out a minute" while I set up my lights and such.

Naturally, he played his cello.

I really only took one shot to "set up" my lighting.

But I kept shooting as he kept playing. 

I have to say, it was BY FAR the most soothing portrait session I had ever photographed. Seriously, I felt like I could have curled up in the corner and taken a little nap. 

My inspiration came from the classical paintings like the Mona Lisa and The Girl with the Pearl Earring. I'm so IN LOVE with how it turned out.

Here's your Sneak Peek, Aidan! I hope you like it!


Do you have a special skill or craft that you would like to feature in your senior portraits? Let's do it! It doesn't have to look cheesy. It doesn't need to be corny. I want YOU to be BE YOU
