A Girl and her Snare – CAPA Senior Drummer Session

I have to admit it, I love when my clients have creative challenges for me!  This senior drummer session was a fun creative challenge that also produced some amazing images.

Miss Raine, a senior at CAPA (Creative and Performing Arts magnet school), wanted her senior portraits done with her snare drum… and glitter!  Mom explained that her daughter wanted one specific shot where the glitter explodes upward as she hits the drum.  Of course, I said sure, let’s do it.  The artist in me loves the opportunity to experiment and play to create new kinds of images.  After some research, practice, and then some assistance by a good (and technically savvy friend) we were able to capture some of my favorite images ever!

I was so impressed by this young lady’s energy and openness.

New Outfit and New Location (sort of)

Once the glitter was done, it was time for a quick change and a few more portraits on the streets of Pittsburgh.  We actually just walked out of the alley and found these beautiful and colorful buildings.

Miss Raine, it was a pleasure to work with you!  I’m excited to hear about all that you accomplish in the future.  Stay confident and true to yourself (because from what I saw, you’re pretty amazing)!
