There is nothing I love more than getting to be creative and capturing people in their element. I have known Elizabeth her entire life. Her mom is one of my very best friends and has been in my life for the past 24 years. We met early on in our first year of High School and she quickly became a part of my friend group. Since then, we have been in each others weddings, we have travelled together and we have celebrate & mourned with each other through every step of our lives. Unfortunately, we live 8 hours away from each other so we don’t often see each other so it is always exciting when we do get to meet up and getting to photograph Elizabeth made this particular trip even more special.
Side note…check out that hair!! Girlfriend has the best hair ever!!
Elizabeth has been dancing for most of her life and when you watch her you can see the ease in which she moves her body. It is amazing to be to see how training and hard work can come together and became this thing of beauty. I am in awe of people who have the ability and the dedication to become an elite dancer.
We ended our time together with an impromptu glitter session. And you all know how much I love glitter! Some people think it’s the most awful thing ever…I adore it! <3 The cleanup doesn’t bother me. Finding glitter for weeks or months later just makes me laugh. I’ll never say no to the chance to photograph a glitter session. This particular glitter throwing party was extremely unorganized because my sweet 8 year old daughter was in charge. She was a bit erratic and managed to get glitter in places in my studio I didn’t think possible. But the magic of the image below made it all worthwhile. Is that image in perfect focus? Nope! Does it show beauty and grace and movement and emotion? Yup! And that is why I create! This is one of my current favourite images! It speaks right to my soul.
