the kids of 826 seattle :: pizza parlor portraits
Each year, 826 Seattle does a fundraiser (for the last two years, it's been held at the Triple Door) to generate part of the base budget for their tutoring center. They usually bring in a few hundred thousand dollars, and the event is full of performances, educational skits about 826 Seattle, and a few guest stars. This year, in advance of the fundraiser, they contacted me to do headshots of some of their star writers, to be used as promotional materials for a the event.
The inspiration was moviestar-headshot-in-a-New-York-pizza-parlor vibe, and I got as close to the look as I could to it with my batch of participants. They all did such a great job!
