Photographing dancers is one of my absolute favorite things!
This is ballerina Sofia at Scorpion Gulch in the South Mountain area of Phoenix. She and her Mom picked the most perfect leotard. The sage green and cactus print beautifully complements the stone and natural backdrop. Even the pointe shoes blend magically with the rustic setting.
Scorpion Gulch is a popular choice for all kinds of portraits -- high school seniors, families, and, of course, dancers.
