when my friend maria contacted me about photographing a shoot with a couple of the talented dancers she teaches in vero, i was all in. maria is a local makeup artist and needed a little bit of a creative challenge - as did i. sometimes it helps to go outside of the box and the usual routine, so we collaborated on a vision we felt was fresh and exciting. i was thrilled when we were able to secure an amazing backdrop - the old diesel building in downtown - which is a site i have had my eye on for awhile for a shoot. special thanks to the talented nicole and krysten who proved to be such sports and game for anything. please check out maria's portfolio here. below are some favorites from our fun shoot!
