"What Feels Like the End is Often the Beginning." -T.S. Eliot
Four years ago I had the pleasure of photographing portraits of beautiful Sophie. With graduation just around the corner it was time for session with this gorgeous girl! For Sophie's Senior Portraits we took to the always beautiful (and busy!) Hermann Park. No matter what she does whether its dancing, modeling, or just being your average teenager, Sophie has a way of always doing things with grace, poise, and a twinkle in her eye. I have loved watching her grow up and can't wait to see where life takes her!!

Abigail's Senior Session was so special... I've watched her grow from a teeny tiny thing to a beautiful young woman. She exudes graces and elegance, especially on stage dancing with the Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre. For her Senior Portraits we stayed local at the charming League Park and Helen's Garden, which always provide such beautiful backdrops.
In preparation for her ballet auditions for summer programs, Zoe was in need of some headshots and portraits! Years ago, Zoe took a tap masterclass of mine at Feijoo Ballet School, I was excited to reconnect with her take these shots for her. After we captured the traditional first arabesque and close ups, we spent the rest of the time playing around in the studio for some fun dance portraits. Zoe is a beautiful dancer with lots of spunk- excited to see where life takes her!!
If you are associated with any ballet school, you'll know that this time of year is all about summer intensive auditions! The shots that these companies and schools require are very specific and are looking for a certain technical aspects. I love offering my trained dancer eye to my clients to give them shots they can walk in confidently into the room with on the day of their audition. One of my students at Feijoo Ballet School, Amélie, needed some shots for her upcoming auditions and I was happy to be at her service. Other than some basic headshots, we also captured her in first arabesque, à la seconde, and échappé on pointe. Amelie is a beauty and I loved this quick session with her- excited to see where these shots take her this summer!

Rylee and Emilee made for the sweetest little models this summer. Before their family made the move to San Antonio, we got together in Galveston for their adorable sister portrait session. Rylee has developed into a beautiful young dancer and Emilee is following in her footsteps. I loved photographing their beautiful dancing through my lens. Not to mention they left me in giggles the entire time! Hope these images adorn the walls and shelves of their new home and that its not the last time I get to spend time with these fun loving, talented sisters.
