It’s always been a dream of mine to photograph a ballerina. Always. Maybe it’s because I never had the talent or coordination to be one myself, but there is just something mesmerizing about how graceful they are.
So when I had the opportunity to work in-studio with a fellow local photog, Kelton Kaye, I jumped on it of course! At the time, I didn’t know I was going to be working with a prima ballerina, but boy oh boy was I excited when she walked in!
Maddy and her mom were so wonderful. I seriously can’t say enough nice things about them. So, I’ll just show you a few of my favorite shots from their session. =)
When I first saw her in her tutu and pointe shoes, I envisioned an entire black & white series, but then when I uploaded them for retouching, I realized I loved the color just as much, so I did both.
I had a lovely time and can’t wait for her to see her complete collection of images!
