Ballet / Elianna

These long wet winter months have one plus for me - I get to spend time experimenting and trying new things! This was one of those shoots for me! Most of my portraits are done in soft, glowing natural light out-doors, while this was done indoors (this was still using natural light though from a beautiful large window). I also got a chance to experiment with taking a few video clips in the studio as Elianna stretched and warmed up - if you know anything about dancing, it takes a good 20-30 minutes to get those muscles ready to fly! Check out my little attempt at video at the bottom of this post!
