Some of my favorite senior pictures I’ve taken over the years are the senior pictures with musical instruments. From flute, saxophone, drums, and guitar — I’ve seen almost everything and I’ve loved the challenge of capturing the relationship between the senior musician and his or her instrument.
Sometimes seniors don’t want to go through the “trouble” of bringing their instrument, but once they see their pictures they are usually very happy they did.
Here are four reasons you should bring your instrument with you on your senior shoot.
Reason #1 – It’s a Part of Who You Are
Your senior pictures are supposed to reflect who you are. If music is an important part of your high school experience, then what better way to showcase this side to your personality than to bring your instrument to your senior shoot? You won’t regret taking your senior pictures with your musical instrument.
Reason #2 – It’s Different
Not everyone can play an instrument! Bringing your musical instrument can help your senior pictures look more unique. I’m delighted to work with you to bring your vision to life, whether that is classy and elegant or hard edged and gritty.
Reason #3 – Musical Instruments are Beautiful
Most instruments are visually interesting and beautiful. Families can spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on instruments. All that polished wood and gleaming metal adds texture and interest to your pictures, and helps them look great!
Reason #4 – It’s Fun!
A beloved instrument can help you feel at ease right away. Many seniors aren’t used to being the star of a photoshoot, so your instrument provides a sense of comfort because it is so familiar and gives you something to do. And as a photographer, seeing the interaction between a senior and his/her instrument often inspires me creatively.
So there you have it, four great reasons to pick up the phone and give Goodhart Photography a chance to photograph your high school senior pictures with musical instruments!!
