I don’t even know how to begin thanking you for the exquisite images and the sublime photography session.
First of all, it was an honor to meet you, and an extraordinary privilege for Florrie to have a session with you.
She has dreamed of this session for several years, and her experience went far beyond any dreams or hopes she had. As a young dancer embarking upon her professional journey, what could be better than to have some exquisite images for her portfolio! Images that are unique and express different aspects of her personality and dance ability. Images that all express her passion and joy for ballet.
Florrie was overjoyed on our ride back to Clearwater and later to Savannah, having had, for the first time in her life, a photography session that was inspiring and fun. She said she lost all notion of time during your collaboration. The working towards something wonderful was exciting, and I am so grateful for your generosity of time.
As Florrie's mom, I can tell you that I saw a new confidence come over her…and instead of the panic and the “I’m not good enough…” look in her eyes, which I perceived in her past photo shoots, I saw her true self emerging, unselfconsciously and with joyous focus.
I can see through your work that you facilitate that “becoming an artist” with all your young dancers. They see themselves as dancers, as capable of moving in beautiful ways, and they feel a sense of their inner beauty which manifests in the outward movement and image. You help them so much in this process with your kindness, your patience, your generosity, your humility, and your incomparable artistry.
So my husband and I cannot thank you enough for what you’ve done for Florrie…. and for so many dancers already and dancers to come… You are a treasure.
We hope that a holiday photography session becomes part of our family’s holiday tradition. We are already discussing a trip to Florida next winter, if possible… and my husband looks forward to meeting you and being there as you create magic in the studio.
