Location: Santa Cruz, California
This weekend a close friend of mine, Lauren, hired me to take photos for her dance portfolio. I can't express how beautiful the day was, not only due to weather, but so many other aspects. We met a drunk couple on their 20th anniversary, making their day with a few shots of tequila on us and sitting patenting listening to their insane stories. Plus, we got to see a good friend of ours from college who has completely turned himself into a typical surfer dude... By the end of the day we were just thankful to have seen each other after almost a year apart from one another, yet it felt like only yesterday I saw my good friend!
When taking photos of this gorgeous dancer, I realized how much I miss dancing myself. I grew up dancing Ballet (up to point), Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-Hop, Tap, etc. You name it... I did it. But it has been years since I have taken dance seriously. Sure you will see me at a rave or night club dancing, minding my own business to the music, but that is nothing in comparison to what I used to do. I do miss the stage, but I love my passion for photography much more...
