There is so much joy in creating art. Taking a wonderful photo, and turning it into something magical is an amazing process.
I think Mallory gets it… her joy is Ballet. The creative form and the grace and the beauty of the dance is the process. The process that is years in the making.
From those first unsure steps in a ballet studio as a tiny girl.. To a beautiful ballerina.. this process is much like the creative art surrounding photography.
I remember my first failed attempts at getting a camera to do what I wanted it to do, I was miserably horrible, but pushed on. I developed a style, and years later I’ve developed a business.
Mostly, I love the joy that these images bring to a wonderful young lady and her mother.
A mom who should be infinitely proud of this young lady
