Meet my little sister, Natalie. She’s spitfire and glitter combined into a Converse high-top wearing teen with a heart of gold. She spends her days cooking, crafting and doing homework suspended twenty feet up in a hammock hidden amongst the foliage. Boy, can she cook. Culinary delights are she her specialty and she has a knack for successfully combining foods that normally wouldn’t be paired together. If I’m lucky, she’ll bake me cookies. Even though she just started music lessons, she plays the cello with passion and gusto and makes her musical presence known when her bow hits the strings.
We thought it would be fun to incorporate the cello into our shoot, so we did. We moseyed around the beach side with a cello, camera and not a care in the world besides watching our step. A cello is a rather standout object to be carrying around, so needless to say we caught a bit of attention. I mean, who carries a cello around town? It seems like some words seem to float over the air more clearly than most, and we learned ‘cello’ is one of them. “Hey, look! They’ve got a cello…” Near the end of the shoot we almost were recruited to play for a little kid’s birthday party happening nearby. We regretfully declined with no good reason given because secretly we had an appointment with the 7-11 slurpee machine.
Our day ended with a large tropical slurpee and a gorgeous sunset across the water. It was a good day.
Enjoy the images.
Have a spectacular weekend!
