I came in with zero expectations. All I wanted was to capture grace and beauty. And this photo session exceeded my desires exponentially.
I have had the opportunity to photograph Katherine and her brother in the past, but when her mother requested separate sessions for each child I was happy to oblige.
Katherine has had many years of dance, but in the past four years or so has taken on ballet.
I told Katherine that I was just going to let her move into different positions. All she had to do was move slowly and gracefully. And that she did!
Finally, Katherine wanted to try some contemporary poses. I figured that it would be composed of some ‘newer’ moves. But instead I got this:
I’ll let you stare a bit longer…
Even being there while she was getting into the pose, I still struggle with understanding how the pose worked.
But I believe that is what is beautiful about art. You never know what to expect and it can leave you speechless.
