Fun with flowers

A few weeks ago, I was asked to photograph the yard where I do many of my photoshoots. The owner is a dentist by day, gardener extraordinaire by night (and weekends). He wanted pictures to hang in his dental office. If you have seen any of my portraits, you have seen parts of his backyard. For fun, I tried some different artistic treatments on a few of them. Here are some of my favorites.

Dancing Queen {Denver ballet photographer}

Back in May I did portraits for the production of Cinderella put on by the On Pointe Studio of Dance located in Parker, Colorado. The lead in the play was the daughter of a friend of mine and she has given me permission to post her portrait (I can't post any others because I don't have model releases from the parents). This turned out so gorgeous. I wish I could post more, but this will have to do. I love doing the dance studio portraits because the girls all look so beautiful in their costumes. One of my goals as a photographer is to help people (girls especially) feel beautiful. As women and girls, we often are dissatisfied with our appearance. But if I can show someone how gorgeous they really are, it makes me so happy! This is for all you beautiful women and girls! You're all princesses!
