When Courtney contacted me about photographing an Artistic Dance Portrait Session, I was ecstatic!! Courtney and I met doing Show Boat with Houston Grand Opera in December 2012. On a day off during that contract, I grabbed herself and two of the other dancers in the show for a fun day of contemporary dance photos. This time around, Courtney wanted to show off more of her theatrical side or as she put it, "Less Twyla more Gwen Verdon." Twist my arm!
For her session, we decided to start at Kemah Boardwalk. It had been years since I'd done photos there and found I had a fresh take on the area. Since she brought a cute retro bathing suit, we headed to the nearby Pine Gully Park to end the session on their beachy sands. Courtney was super fun to work with once again and I absolutely adore the final product of our collaboration. It's always a special treat for me to photograph dancers since that is how my love for photography truly started.
