Portrait of a ballerina

Since my time mentoring under the incredible, international photographer Sue Bryce, I have been captivated by her portraits of dancers.  I've known Heather and her girls for many years now and they graced the studio recently with their poise, quiet smiles and pointe shoes.  When Heather said she would love to come and have some portraits done, I was thrilled. The girls have been dancing since they were little and their grace was so lovely to photograph.  Here are some of their images including the girls "before."
