Kimberly the Dancer
Kimberly has been taking dance since she was 4 years old, and is now en pointe at 15. In addition to her costumes, Rebekah brought a skirt that has just the right feel and length to be thrown for a special effect. Here’s a behind the scenes look at a practice throw. We had so much fun working together to get just the right look to the skirt all the while Kimberly was being directed on her pose. I think we got it just right – what do you think?
Here’s a full size look at the final image:
We got several different looks using her costumes, posing, and lighting. Kimberly is so proficient, it was a true joy to capture her poise, grace, and beauty. Enjoy!
With the idea of entering this image in a judged competition, I altered the color tone a bit to give it more of a fine art feel and received a Bronze Award!
And this one from 4 years ago is similar…don’t you love seeing the difference 4 years make? Kimberly was a very mature 11-year old and what a delightful young woman she has become!
The mother/daughter bond is such a special one so, of course, we created a few of the two of them together. This image is their favorite.
Rebekah shared her thoughts with me about our session, and I’d like to share her words with you: “When we don’t really know how capable or beautiful we are, our sessions with Gretchen always bring out the best in us.”
