Donna – the lovely bride who’s engagement session we featured just a few days ago – had a special request for us.  She wanted us to photograph her at ballet practice.  But she was quick to point out that ballet isn’t all about tu-tus and pretty costumes.  A dancer is molded by years of hard work, and a copious amount of blood, sweat and tears.  Donna wanted a raw, grungy ballet session that honored the grittiness that underlies this graceful art.

This was such a fun session for us because we got to photograph something entirely new to us, which is always invigorating.  Thanks Donna for inviting us!  The dedication you have for your passion is so inspiring to us both!  :)
