Portraits of an Opera Singer Claire McCahan

ShareShare on Facebook1

Opera singer Claire McCahan returned to her hometown of Plymouth, NH, from Boulder, Colorado.  She had scheduled  her portrait session during her visit, and we began our planning long distance.  We had decided that we would create a body of work that would include headshots for her website, portraits she can use in programs, and portraits that will be classics one hundred years from now.  Some of the portraits needed to convey the fact that Claire is a mezzo-soprano, meaning that she often plays traditionally men’s roles.  In other portraits, I wanted to show Claire’s calm strength.  In others, my goal was to convey her energy as a singer without actually having her sing.
