Cape Porpoise, Maine - I set out with the lovely and wonderful Shae to capture some fun portraits of her as she heads into her Senior year of High School. A talented and bright young lady, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Shae and her wonderful family over the last few years in Maine. She is a gifted young theater performer, that I have been lucky to work with professionally on stage, as well as a hardworking rising Senior, looking forward to the many opportunities coming her way. In her downtime from school and theater, you can spot her working at The Clam Shack, the world renowned and award winning business her family started in Kennebunkport, ME.I am always honored to work with young talent and I adore this wonderful young lady!
We decided on a lifestyle session for her Senior Pics - portraits and casual shots mixed with some theatrical and dramatic shots for fun!
Photographing dancers in the serene and stark beauty of the the desert, a mere dream of an idea, became a reality as I worked in Utah for the past few weeks. In and amongst a crazy schedule putting up a new Disney show, I found a time and set out with Jace in the early evening to capture thrilling photos on the red rocks. I have known Jace for quite some time now and he is not only one of the most dynamic, strong and graceful dancers I know, but he is also a beautiful human being. It was a perfect collaboration in stunning Saint George.
Cheetah + Rhiann
I ran into the acro couple Cheetah + Rhiann while I was hiking The Narrows in Zion - I instantly knew that I wanted to connect to these two as they had an amazing energy about them (strangers yet familiar in the sense that artists relate to each other instantly). I had my tripod set up to shoot the landscape and in the moment talked to them about "Dancers in the Desert." They were completely game and excited to do a few shots in the water. Little did I know that they were on a life adventure of their own, getting married across the states and world! ((Check out their adventures on Instagram))
I love that life and nature present incredible, one of kind collaborations and unforgettable moments with strangers and friends alike.
