[portraits] Gatsby-inspired Dance Session


My friend Liz is a competitive dancer, and last week she rented this ah-MAY-zing dress for her competition! She only had it for a few days, so we squeezed in a photo session before we both went out of town. SO.MUCH.FUN.! The colors and style--especially with the sheer sashes across the back--made me think of the 1920s glamour look that is showcased in the new movie "The Great Gatsby." My main inspiration for the shoot was actually a song from the movie soundtrack. You'll have to wait until later next week to know which one! I'm working with several of the images to pull them together into a fine art piece, but for now I leave you with these beauty images and an action shot!
