The Beauty of Dance - Carly

I have had the luck to be able to photograph some of Kansas City's most beautiful women over the last month - tonight's subject of my dance portraits was the stunning Carly Prenger, 22, a dancer and dance instructor. I have to admit that these "sneak peak" blog posts have been difficult -how do I choose only 3-4 when I love so many of them? Carly's session was just amazing this evening and I'm so happy to be able to share these portraits with you.

Isn't Carly a beauty?

And finally, Carly really touched me with the story of her remarkable grandmother, and the inspiration Carly has gotten all her life from this amazing woman. Carly told me about portrait of her grandmother, herself a dancer, in pointe shoes, and Carly was eager to create a similar portrait this evening. Here's Carly's homage to her grandmother. I'm proud to have helped her honor her grandmother in this way.
