A few days after the end of his junior year at Cary Academy, Ryan started planning his senior portraits Cary session with us.  It was his first ‘official’ senior year activity, and we couldn’t wait to get started!

Senior Portraits Cary:  Baseball and a Euphonium

When we met with Ryan and his family, we learned that he is the oldest of five children  His family loves to travel and spend time together.  Ryan has been playing baseball since he was only 4 years old and still loves the game.  He loves computer science, and has completed an internship at SAS.  He also plays euphonium in the jazz band.

For his senior portraits, Ryan definitely wanted to include baseball.  He likes a colorful, candid, casual vibe, and hoped to also include a nod to the jazz band.  Our team got busy planning his senior portraits Cary session for the beginning of the school year.

We started Ryan’s session at our studio, for some classic jazz band portraits with his euphonium.  For some reason the phrase ‘hurdy gurdy’ had us laughing during his session (only Ryan will get that part!).  Will, our assistant was excellent to have on hand for his bow tying skills which came in quite handy.

Then it was off to the Cary Academy baseball field.  Teresa had made special arrangements to get Ryan’s uniform and to have access to the field.  And she learned to use a variety of tools like the base-hole-scooper, and the home-plate-duster!

Finally, we made a trip to Jordan Lake marina for some casual dock-side portraits. Ryan’s mom gets the prize for laughing the loudest at our dumb jokes!

It’s all on the behind-the-scenes video:

Ryan returned to the studio with his family a few weeks later to view his portraits and video.  He selected his yearbook portraits, which we submitted on his behalf.  Teresa designed a wall art grouping for them, and they chose the digital file collection.

We loved working with Ryan and can’t wait for the rest of his siblings to be seniors!
