One of the great things about redoing my website and adding a blog section is getting to look through and relive old shoots as I update the website. I photographed Michaela DePrince for Energetiks Dancewear at the South Street Seaport in New York City in July of 2013. Michaela is an incredible ballerina who rose to fame after her participation in the ballet documentary First Position. At the time of our shoot she was dancing with Dance Theater of Harlem, and now she is living abroad dancing with Dutch National Ballet. In addition to being crazy talented, Michaela is one of the most down to earth, kind, and gracious ballerinas I have worked with. This shoot will always, always, always be one of my favorites.
