The strength and form of a ballerina is uniquly marvelous. I had the wonderful opportunity to capture my talented friend Belle who has been in ballet for over 10 years. We had picked out a spot to shoot in our town of Yucaipa in sunny California. The wonderful spring day weather quickly took a turn to ominous storm clouds and torrential down pour. Those storm clouds created one of the most marvelous back drops for us and I simply couldn't have asked for more. I'm in love with the shoot and the ever growing evolution of my work. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
