Ballet Fine Art Portraits

As I've gotten to know Lillian over the last 2 years I've always admired her grace and poise, as well as her incredible talent as a dancer. I brought her and her mother in for a mother-daughter portrait, but also told her to bring some of her dance outfits - this is for me, I said. I'm dying to photograph a ballerina! But actually, what I ended up shooting the most of was her in my frou-frou home-made tulle skirt with a thrifted nude slip and old corset - the look was vampy romantic vintage and my gosh, I just could not get enough of it!

We ran out of time,  literally, and just did not have time to photograph everything! These are a few of my favorites from our ballet session.
