So…it’s literally been so long since I blogged I couldn’t remember my passwords or access to my blog, pathetic I know. Then as I started blogging this session I quickly remembered why I don’t blog…it’s a lot of work, whew!! So in celebration of actually seeing a blog post, how about leaving some love for all this effort…lol:)

Okay, onto my post…you might want to remember this young lady because I have no doubt she is going places.  It’s a good day when you walk away with so many pieces of art from a session!  Here is a collection of some of the dance art we made along with some quotes I love.

“I hear the wind among the trees   Playing the celestial symphonies;   I see the branches downward bent,   Like keys of some great instrument.”   ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. ~Agnes de Mille

Thanks for stopping by:)
  • Kate - She’s striking – so beautiful and wonderfully captured once again, Hayley :)ReplyCancel

  • Janet Stoney - Absolutely gorgeous. I love these photos and I am a big admirer of this amazing young lady. I know her strength as a dancer is also personafied as a courageous role model for her piers who know that her heart beats for her love of dance, not for the praise for her accomplishments. She will go far.ReplyCancel

Next up is beautiful Amara from Okemos HS.  She is a dancer and that was a very important part of her session.  And as you all know I love to photograph seniors and dancers…so this was lots of fun!!

There are really no words for this first image of Amara. It’s a HUGE favorite of mine…so much that it was printed quite large for the loft!
