Last month, I did a senior portrait session with Garrett. This guy is super-involved and we got tons of great images in his various sports uniforms. He is also a musician and wanted a nice portrait with his trumpet. After trying out a few different poses, we ended up with this –


We also had one where he was looking down, but everyone decided the eye contact made this one stronger. I went with a more dramatic lighting ratio and really close cropping. It produced a portrait that was very traditional, but also had lots of impact.

I’ll tell you what I really love about this portrait…

Have you ever looked back at pictures of yourself from your teenage years and been so embarrassed by how you looked, what they were wearing, etc? I think this image has a very timeless feel that will look cool no matter how far down the road you look at it.
