Naperville senior Photographer | Jazz Man

I am still so behind in my blogging!  But I am excited to share some of this senior’s session.  This Neuqua Valley High School senior came to me mostly because of his mom. That is the usual response when I talk with senior boys.  Most are not super into having a senior photography session.  Now, hopefully if they have done their homework, they’ve seen that I rock athlete pictures for Naperville senior photography sessions.  Now, did you know that I also rock musicians?  Well, I do…Not to toot my own horn.  LOL  Ok, that was punny of me, but I couldn’t help it. LOL

So when we had our consultation, I could tell he was super nice, but totally doing these for his mom.  But I wanted to do something for at least a few pictures that he would really love.  Turns out he is a trumpet player. I  love photographing musicians, and when I talked about doing some dark and shadowy images, he was all for it. I LOVE these.  Now this first image was actually just a lighting test to make sure everything was right, but I kept it because I loved it, and they ended up making it the cover of their album.  You just don’t see straight profiles like this anymore. I may have to do more of them.

This was the image I was originally going for, which I also really love.

I got this black leather chair just for him.  Though I’d been meaning to get one. 😉  I love the undone bowtie.

After our studio session, he got changed, and we went on location with his mom and sister.  I made his sister be my lighting assistant.  I loved his sweet smile.

When I took this one, I showed it to his sister.  She said, “I feel uncomfortable. My brother looks hot!” LOL

While he looks great with his serious look, I love his big smile.

He is also a baseball pitcher, so we created an awesome baseball collage.
