“Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.” ~Author Unknown
Danielle radiates the love of dance when she steps into her stride.
After her senior portrait session on the beaches in Oregon we decided to play a bit… it was extremely hard work leaping, then instantly sinking into the sand. I kept asking her to ‘do another… we’re almost there’. She would smile and try again… each step just as beautiful as the next, but I couldn’t let her know that. The light just wasn’t right, the feeling not there…but this particular image was the last one captured as I knew instantly this was it… This image was for me. The ironic thing is, i don’t photograph silhouettes. It’s not because i don’t like to, but because I just hadn’t, wasn’t good at it, and hadn’t taken the time to play with them. All these year and now i decide i LOVE them!
This image was taken after all an amazing session at the coast. We went to a few fun locations: by a pier, with the family, with a friend…it was all so much fun. i love to create images that they will cherish and last for a lifetime! There was no better way to let her her creativity shine through.
I have not entered a contest for years, busy with life, family, work, play. This image is worthy of being seen and the best reason is…because it makes me smile…. https://www.rocktheshotforum.com
