Today’s featured session is from Carissa Davis!

This session is graceful and elegant I could not help but feature it.  Carissa captured this ballerina in perfect form.

Here is what Carissa had to say about this session:

“Ballerinas just leave me in awe. The way they can manipulate their bodies so gracefully and effortlessly. And if all that wasn’t hard enough, they do it on their toes…. in pointe shoes! Have you ever seen pointe shoes in person?! So when Brooke approached me about wanting to do her session around dance, I knew I wanted to capture the elegance of a dancers body. I didn’t want the background to take away from the shape and movement of the poses. I wanted it to be simple but timeless. I chose an old parking lot that let’s in an OH SO PERFECT light. The walls create a gorgeous but simple background that allows your eyes to move across the subject instead of being distracted by the background. It created enough even surface and space to allow her to dance freely and stretch in seemingly impossible ways.”

The gear used:

Canon Mark iii

Canon 135mm

Canon 85mm

What inspired this session?

Brooke is one of my Teen Reps on my 2017 Dream Team and will soon be a Senior Rep for my 2018 Dream Team! Her life revolves around dance, so it was a no brainer that she wanted to include that on her one-on-one session! Which was a dream come true for me- because let’s be real…. WHO DOESN’T want to photograph a gorgeous blond hair, blue eyed ballerina ?!
