Last week, I did headshots for a dear friend and one of my favorite subjects. Christina is an opera singer and needed updated headshots for auditions and also a new personal website.  She has just finished a successful summer of concerts and training with the Asheville (NC) Lyric Opera Young Artist Program, as one of just six singers chosen to participate.

We photographed these images with window light in the background.  The style of headshots for opera singers today is moving away from solid white background. In these portraits, I used a narrow depth of field so the window frame and the greenery outside would go out of focus and thus not distract from the main subject.

Faithful readers will recall other photographs I’ve taken of Christina.  If you do a search for “Christina” in the search box to the right, you’ll see some earlier posts with images of her as well as a link to a video we created together.

Wishing Christina all the best in her budding opera career!

This is a Christmas card one of my clients sent this year, from a photograph I took of their beautiful daughters.

Here’s wishing all of you a happy and healthy New Year!

Recently I had the great pleasure of shooting with these dynamo young ladies, Marta, age 8, and Margot, age 12. Before we go any further, be sure to click on each image in this post. The pictures will appear LARGER  and clearer! This works on a phone or tablet as well.

Margot and Marta are budding actresses and needed headshots for their auditions and play programs. But the images will also be used for a holiday card and gifts for the relatives – and also a surprise gift from Mom to Dad of a print in a glass block for their 15th Wedding Anniversary. You remember – it’s glass, right?

The girls were great fun to shoot with. They could handle anything I threw at them – such as: “Margot – Quick! look to your right and give me a Cat-that-Ate-the-Canary Look!”

We shot about 300 pictures over a couple of hours. Mom and the girls picked about 90 images to consider and had a tough time narrowing them down to 20. “We like them all!” That warms my heart to hear! And I had a tough time narrowing the 20 down to 7 to put in this blog post.

I love Marta’s multi-colored braces that suit her personality to a “T.”

Hoping to be able to photograph these girls every year going forward. Will be a treat to see them grow and develop.

Marta looks up to her big sister – well, at least some of the time. Margot takes care of her, some of the time – but is focused straight ahead – literally and figuratively.  By the way, I’m just making this all up. But these are some of the impressions I get from looking at these adorable and expressive faces.
