As I drove from Chelsea to Ann Arbor, the big, beautiful full moon was rising over the frosty tree line and the frozen Michigan ground. As I traveled East toward the cool tones of the rising moon, the sky behind me was glowing and golden from the setting sun.
I remembered the time I spent in Ohio just a few short weekends ago. I had the opportunity to photograph Anna, an amazing, up-and-coming dancer that pores love into every movement she makes.
The harmony and equilibrium between the setting sun and the rising moon mirrored the beauty that Anna possessed, both soft and defined, delicate and fierce, strong and the flexible. Like the moon and the sun working together to transition day into night, Anna is also capable of holding opposites in balance and creating breathtaking beauty.
There is no greater gift that I can be given as a portrait photographer than someone allowing me to see into her soul and to capture her beauty in all of its many forms.
Thank you, Anna, for spending time with me and giving me such a beautiful gift. I wish you joy and success in your amazing journey as a dancer. May your path take you to incurable places.
