tiny dancer

tiny dancerHere’s to the power of the imagination. A few weeks ago Hazel came to my studio for her fourth birthday photo. She was adorable in her plaid tights and sweater dress. I knew that Hazel loves her dance lessons, so midway through the session I brought a frothy pink tutu. Her eyes lit up as she stepped into the dress. In minutes she became the ballerina of her imagination. She twirled, leaped and then bowed for her audience.

I like to consider that my gift as a photographer is to help bring to life what we imagine of ourselves. I do this through careful listening and creating a space for good things to happen. In this way I help find that special beauty within. Or in the case of Hazel, the ballerina within.
