For Serena’s sixteenth birthday, her mom hired me to take some pictures of her playing her violin. Violin is intrinsic to Serena, and she has continued a lifelong pursuit of the craft even to this day. She is studying music and also works in music, helping teach others how to play the instrument as well. On her birthday here, her mom also presented her with an unexpected gift; an S shaped violin, for Serena and for Sixteen. What a beautiful gesture for a beautiful girl. I had such a blast with this session, listening and watching her play violin on the Parksville beach at golden hour. You could really tell she loves what she does; throughout the session she would grin from ear to ear with a coy look in her eyes.
