What a pleasure it was to photograph so much talent and beauty! Christina Nam had her first solo debut with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at age 9. She has since concertized around the globe. She is one of many wonderful musicians referred to me by her teacher Kurt Sassmanshaus who teaches at The University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music. At the age of 15, Christina is the concertmaster of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra, the Walnut Hills High School Chamber Orchestra, and the Starling Chamber Orchestra. She is a very impressive young woman!
The studio was an obvious choice for our photo shoot since we were in the middle of one of the dreariest winters ever. We took advantage of the nooks and crannies of my in-home studio by using the solarium for window light portraits and the grand hallway and staircase for something a bit moodier. Christina wore a fabulous green leather jacket, the standard artist all black, and she brought a lovely gown with an asymmetrical off the shoulder top.
