En Pointe {Friendswood Dance Photographer}

Meet Abby. Sweet Abby dances with my daughter and she was willing to “trash” an old pair of pointe shoes on the beach to help see a vision of mine come to life. Since my daughter has started dancing, I have found that more and more, I am drawn to photographing dancers. There is something about the way they move. Their bodies are beautiful and I loving combining the art of photography with the art of dance. Thank for playing along with me, Abby! <3

My beautiful Prima Ballerina

Before you say anything, let me just say, it’s been too long. Way too long. I’ve missed you, photography, and I am embarrassed by my absence!

What have I been doing while I was away? A little bit of being a wife, a dash of motherhood, and a whole heaping lot of nursing school. But as of one month ago, I am done! I have graduated with my BSN; in fact, I’m just mere hours away from taking my state boards to finally become an RN. It was over 4 years ago that I made a post on here announcing an expected absence while I attended LVN school! I had so much fun, I kept going! I did take a few pictures here and there over the past two years, and I look forward to getting caught up on my blog! But first, I’m leaving next week to spend two weeks in Haiti working for Mamababy Haiti, a midwife clinic in Cap Haitien. I am incredibly excited about my upcoming trip, and even more excited to begin working as a L & D RN when I return. In between all of that excitement, I’ll get things caught up around here – and do some laundry, and figure out how to cook again. I feel like I need lessons on how to integrate back into society after nursing school. It’s been 4 weeks and I’m still feeling a little lost!

I couldn’t stand waiting any longer to begin sharing pictures again! This is my sweet Madeline, she has been dancing this year and will have her first recital on Saturday. Though she’s very close to 5, she is not immune from meltdowns from time to time. Its just happened that her latest was on the same day as dance company pictures. We missed them completely, so I had to take her out and do my own. While I would have loved to have be able to get a class picture, I think my individuals may be a little bit better :) I realize I may be a bit biased, but I think she is the most beautiful girl in the world. I love when she dances – she puts her heart into it – and when she dances around, she is in her own world, the most perfect prima ballerina.
